When we learned that P.F. Changs in downtown Santa Monica had closed, we were a little sad. That location was an institution (and one of our favorite places to eat lunch and never tell a soul). So when we heard that Lotus Dim Sum was taking over the space, we got excited. It’s nice that another Chinese option moved in, and as much as we love P.F. Changs’ lettuce cups, Lotus thankfully isn’t a chain. Finally a proper dim sum prospect on the Westside! But unfortunately, this sprawling dumpling spot right next to the Promenade is a letdown. The XLB dough is too thick, the shrimp in the shumai and rice rolls taste like microwave, and the dumplings and buns are forgettable. Oh well.
