Whether you work on LA or are just there to shop, Empress Pavillion is a great place to grab some dim sum. The place is huge, but gets crowded as lunch time apporaches. It's actully not as packed these days as it used to be. But the place has great food. It's the perfect place for groups or large families because you don't have to worry about being loud. Their service is not too good...takes a while to get your water or bill.
