I haven't been here in a very long time, but I'd venture to guess it's still one of the great places to eat in Chinatown and do some sightseeing before and after too!

I arrive to this place after asking a Chinese lady where she will eat. We are a real fans of Chinese cuisine. We were staying at a little hotel in the Barrio Chino. We have dim sum twice and dinner. Nice Cantonese kitchen recommended.

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.
