In Los Angeles County, CBS Seafood Restaurant's Dim Sum is a solid "B". Compared to other Chinatown dim sum restaurants it is a "B+". This is not Lunasia or Elite, but compares well with Ocean Seafood and Golden Dragon.

Considering the reviews on trip advisor and recommendation from a friend we went to CBS seafood for dim sum I can sum it up in one word terrible. the restaurant was dirty the food was mediocre to poor with the fried crab and shrimp ball grotesque. Proceed with caution.

This place is tucked inside Chinatown in Los Angeles. It's on Ord Street and they have their own parking. It's a small parking area but at least they do have parking. Food is ok not fancy at all. This a good place if you're on a budget. I gave them three stars because there is no ambiance it's only for... More

CBS Seafood has been around for decades. Still one of the best places in Los Angeles/ Chinatown. [very near downtown LA]. Always busy, so do not be in a hurry! Just go and enjoy. Sunday Dim Sum is especially interesting. Best if you have someone that speaks Chinese and/or knows Chinese food served from the carts. I just point and... More

Having been here multiple times now, I can say that it is consistently great. The portions/price = good value, and the dim sum selection if you arrive well before transition to dinner is excellent.

Dim sum lunch cart until 3. At 245 all shrimp and chicken dishes were gone from the cart and we were told there's no more. After explaining to the manager that we shouldn't have been seated without enough food, they made it right, pulling some things we wanted from the magic vault. Everything was truly authentic, good, and generous as... More

Perfectly acceptable, but nothing special, nothing excellent. Still, a decent choice for dim sum in DTLA.

We went there for tim sum while we are in transit in Los Angeles waiting to board the cruise ship. The portion is good, the taste is authentically Hong Kong. The duck is well marinated. The service is excellent.

My family is Hakka so in China, my Hakka relatives go to eat yum cha. And here at CBS, a Cantonese restaurant in LA's Chinatown, the servers and the carts come around often and quickly. There's a separate counter for you to order takeout if you didn't order everything you wanted for lunch, you can go to the counter and... More

I've been here throughout my life and I've sat at the dining room once for dim sum, but most of the time I go to the take out portion of the restaurant. The dining room wasn't too bad, typical dim sum place. The take out portion is what I usually go to. Service is okay, the food they serve is... More
