Fast and great service, maybe because it was not busy. Peking duck is great! If you are not familiar on how this dish is served, they cut slices and serve on your table right away, and then bring later the rest of the duck served with their special gravy. The yeung chow fried rice is not the best I have... More

I love the Dim Sum. I love the variety of Dim Sum. I love the fast service and the fast moving carts of Dim Sum. I love the Dim Sum ladies. The food is so delicious and so fresh. The atmosphere is cool and authentic. The restaurant looks clean. I could eat there every day! Unfortunately, they open the restaurant... More

Stopped in for lunch on Sunday while visiting in southern CA. There were lots of choices, plenty of food, and reasonable prices.

Consistently good Cantonese food. On our recent visit, we had Sauteed prawns with honey glazed walnuts. Scallops with vegetables. Steamed chicken with ginger chili and green onions, pork chops, chow mein, fried string beans, and sautéed Chinese greens. All the dishes were tasty and we could not find any fault with any of the dishes. We've also been here for... More

I have been here several times over the years and have always enjoyed it. It has been helpful to go with a friend who knows what to order, but I think you will do fine just picking from the servers who come around.

My family and I went here to eat dim sum. Good selection. Fresh. Average price. Average service. Service via carts, so no wait time.

This place has great dim sum every day of the week. You can order a variety with two people or 20. There is plenty of room for large groups and the food comes fast.

We have had Dim Sum many times here. It is usually very good with many familiar choices and sometimes novel ones. Crowded on the weekends, but usually the wait is not long. Very popular with Asian customers so I'm assuming that the Dim Sum is acceptably authentic although I haven't been to Hong Kong yet.

I love Dim Sum...I'll go anywhere to have it. Usually it is only served on the weekend but Sea Empress serves it daily. All of the dishes are seasoned perfectly. You can eat-in or take-out - I have done both numerous times. As with all Dim Sum places, go with friends so you can order more dishes. They also have... More
