dim sum to rival Yank Sing in San Fran?

Hi all, I am an avid consumer of dim sum in various LA restaurants.... but last weekend I tried it at Yank Sing in San Francisco. It was delectable... quite upmarket with variations on the traditional - lobster, sea bass and expensive flavourful scallops were just a few delicacies found in the dumplings! The rice noodle wrapping was so great..not too sticky or gelatinous, and very thin so the only thing we tasted was the filling. The steamed pork buns (always my favourite) were huge and delicious, just everything we tried was exceptional. So...now I want to find an equivalent in LA -preferably not further than Monteray park as I live near Marina Del Rey, but I'll go far if it's incredible! Yank Sing was more expensive than the normal $14/$15 a person here - we came out to $26 a person...but I'm willing to pay if I can find something so tasty. I've read many of the No Cal/So Cal challenge posts but now that I've tried Yank Sing I want more detail for something specifically as good as that. All advice is welcome! :)
