Elevated, Authentic Dim Sum

Iron Teapot is founded during the pandemic by me, Sally, a Dim Sum lover from the San Gabriel Valley (about an hour East of Santa Monica).

Iron Teapot's menu will also offer Sustainable vegan & meatless versions of meat based dim sum
Founder Sally Chan is a meat lover that has been searching for sustainable tasty substitutes to meat dishes. In opening this restaurant, Iron Teapot is devoted to creating unique meatless versions of the most popular dim sum dishes: Siu Mai, Har Gow, and Cha Siu Bao. The meatless meats are made to be similar to meat and infused with plant-based protein - such as pea protein. Additionally, there will be a purely plant-based vegan menu that will be made without any cross-contamination.

The next time you decide to dine with us, we can take your order instead of scanning the QR Code and ordering it through the digital ordering system. Also, we can recommend other dim sum items that we think you will enjoy since you were not a big fan of the XLB soup dumplings.

We waited so long for their sponge cake dessert that we canceled the order so we could leave. Waitress was just bringing it over as we left table. She said we should take it home, as it's ready and cannot be served to anyone else. So, we enjoyed our free dessert at home. Our first table wasn't clean enough, so we moved. Patio dining was very nice. Enjoyed the robot that stopped in front of the tables and kept order hot. We'd try it again.

It was comically bad food delivered by a cat robot and friendly, albeit a bit disheveled servers. I don’t know what to say aside from what one looks for a nice restaurant is just not found here. I sent a pot of tea back that was luke warm and tasted like the ocean. The dumplings variety was an array of “what am I eating” wrapped in primary colours. Vegan tofu looked frozen. We could have arguably sent everything back for the quality but at what point do you just call the meal a “miss.” The crowd around us did seem to keep ordering food and smiling but overall it was just a weird vibe and experience. Hate to give a one star review during a time that’s hard for restaurants but this place was exceptionally bad.

And of course, the hot tea is great. The soup dumplings are doughy and just OK compared to Din Tai Fung. If I ran this restaurant, I would get rid of the robot cats and fire the pretty boy waiter who can't keep track of orders. The other staff members are competent and friendly.

Not even water. They didn't bring last dish. One waitress was very polite and apologetic . I feel sorry for wait staff.

The service was just hectic - the staff were chasing these robots around clearly nervous they were going to bang into us. We ordered soup dumplings then over an hour later, after we chase for a third time, they come over and tell us they were out. It’s a shame - it has the potential to be amazing but right now the staff don’t seem to know what they’re doing and are visibly overwhelmed. Still giving 4 stars, as no one was rude, just seemed out of control.

The service was a bit disjointed and slow, but we were expecting that due to the other reviews. Everyone working was incredibly nice and understanding. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. And as a bonus, you get served alongside these huge robot cat waiter things- which we found fun and entertaining. Overall I would recommend, the only star off is due to generally disorganization that we believe will be fixed over time as it looked like the place just opened.

But no more! Iron Teapot has a wide array of vegan options, delicious and interesting (unlike the sad attempts that you see in other establishments). Standouts for me were the daikon/turnip cake (I would love to see them do a Malay style one!), the wood-ear mushroom xiao long bao and the fried seaweed wrapped shrimp and pork (obviously not vegan, but insanely tasty). The robot waiters are rather fun, ours kept going to the table next to ours (31, we were table 13), but a human server is always on hand to deliver food from the robot to the table. I did feel bad that the table next to ours seemed to wait quite a long time for their food, and it hadn't arrived even by the time we were leaving - but it's possible that they arrived at the peak dining hour whereas we were there a little earlier (because we're too old to be out late!). I would definitely recommend this to a friend, whether for dinner or a more traditional lunchtime dim sum experience. I will certainly be back very soon!

They have classics like ha gow but also totally original pieces like chicken curry flavor dim sum. Please take the time to visit, you don’t be disappointed. One thing to note though is they they quite often run out of some of the dim sums

Showed up and there was a huge line of people with reservations waiting to be seated. Waited for half an hour, and not one employee walked out to reassure or address the situation. Seemed very understaffed. Not good service to overbook if they are not prepared to handle the crowd. Our group and others ended up going to other restaurants. Don’t recommend coming during busy hours or holidays.

Unfortunately, from the time we first checked in the entire place was already in disarray with servers looking panicked. We were sat in the very back of the patio where there was no heater. We were freezing waiting for any part of our order to arrive which took over an hour. The robot server was not working very well and a server had to help the robot deliver food. It was a mess. People were leaving because they could no longer wait for their food. The food was overall good but just took way too long. Even our tea order took over half an hour to arrive. The servers were nice but just too overwhelmed. Hopefully it improves.

Upon sitting down, we were required to open an account using our phones and place the order this way. We were then served by a robot, Chased by the waiter who was trying to figure out if the robot is doing the correct thing. The food was good but we both felt that we don’t need to dine there again.

The food was actually delicious (but very overpriced compare to other popular and delicious LA dim sum restaurants) but having the restaurant’s owner screaming to one of the poor employees right in front of us during service was unacceptable. Working in hospitality myself, I can’t support any businesses that treat their employees this way.

The waitress said she was going to turn on the heater but nobody came. Obviously they had the lack of stuff members. We were freezing and it seemed we would have to wait for an hour to get food, we left without eating. I would not recommend this place at all.

The food is excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful and the owner is a gem. That said…. Their ordering system, while super convenient and conceptually a good idea, seems to be super buggy. Several items were missing until we asked about them, and other times items we never ordered were brought to the table.

And it has a lot to offer that other places don’t, mainly: an extensive vegan dim sum menu. This is a game changer for people with dietary restrictions! They also have an order and pay on your phone option, which I was a fan of.

Family run with owners little kids at the restaurant, which I love. The location for dim sum is great because culver doesn't have any other dim sum options. The whole setup is off. No one seems to know what to do with themselves. We arrived (party of 4) and the bartender seated us. He explained that the menu was electronic using the code provided which Is the new normal or we could have physical menus. He also said he could make us any cocktails not on the menu. We waited around for about 20 minutes and one one had come to take our order. the owner walked by and I ask him for our waiter and he looked confused and he had a women came over to us and asked us to order our food using the app. We were given no explanation of the dishes nothing. It was sitting at a restaurant, but ordering postmates or grub hub as if we were at home. Weird. We ordered our drinks orally to the waiter but placed our food order on the app. it was annoying and took forever. The drinks were good, but took awhile and the food came out all at once. The server said that our salad and broccoli were coming out soon. The dim sum was not great, the skins were too thick and sticky and the flavors were not the best. We ate what was served, my husband ordered more drinks that never came. At about 2 hours into the meal someone turned up Jefferson Starship on a radio in the corner and I was ready to go. We canceled the drink order asked for the bill and left. After getting home we realized that the salad and broccoli never came, but since we paid before we ate we didn't catch the discrepancy. They seem like really nice people and you can tell they are trying a different approach to the dine in experience, but it wasn't our thing.
