WHY Well-crafted dim sum by day and well-executed upscale Chinese cooking by night, served in an attractive dining room for surprisingly modest prices.

WHAT The dim sum gets more attention at this swank Cantonese place on Alhambra’s auto row, but we think the dinner is equally worthy. As is the trend now in your classier joints, dim sum is made to order, not served from wheeled carts, so it’s fresher than the norm. But consider the dinner menu: whole, crisp-skinned Beijing duck served with fat pancakes, stir-fried prawns in tea sauce, fresh lobster with black pepper and butter (a bargain at $28), a first-rate kung pao chicken, delicious and vibrantly green pea shoot tips with garlic, and, for groups of about ten, a celebratory whole roast suckling pig ($18).

WHO Large, prosperous Chinese-American family groups.
