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

Good Bekjing duck, good and fast service. We got there early not many customers yet. Steam whole fish in soya sauce is another must try.

A group of us went here for DIM SUM. It was push cart services but several times; I and another person had to go to the cart to get what we wanted. When we first got there, we got several carts pushed at us at 115PM but after 145 the carts stop coming. Good choices but not enough shrimp, scallops,... More

I went to Sea Empress with my cousin and his wife a few days ago for dim sum on a Saturday morning. (They live a town over and I was visiting for the weekend.) The parking lot was enormous. Of note is that the restaurant has a B grade, which my cousin called "B for best." Jokes aside, the dim... More

We like to stay at the Miyako Hotel when using LAX as our multi-day layover, and one thing we look forward to is good food, and good dim sum. Did the Elite Restaurant in Monterey Park last year. Great food, BIG crowd (1.5 hour wait, a new record for me by a long shot), and a bit of a drive... More
