Must be the DimSum place

I would say the dimsum was good not the best. Weekends expect to wait like crazy assuming you can even get parking. If you don't come at 10am better to come at 130pm. What I did like was that the service is better than your average chinese restaurant and seeming a bit cleaner. The dimsum i felt... read more

This place has been around for some time. It is considered one of the best Dim Sum Place in Monterey Park because of high quality and good selections. Lines are long on weekends, so get there early. They open at 8AM for morning tea. The place is clean, service is average. Price is above average.

I eat a lot of Dim Sum and this was excellent. Environment is casual but semi-formal and a lot of care goes into keeping the facilities clean. If there is something that you want that are not on the carts, they will make it for you fresh. The value is amazing. Things that were delicious: Pork and Shirmp Pot Sticker... More

If you've been in the greater L.A. area for any amount of time, and you've tried your share of Chinese food, no doubt you've been to NBC Restaurant. They handle traditional Chinese staples from dIm sum to full banquet fare to late night supper. They have their supporters and detractors for any number of reasons, but to me, food and... More

if you want an authentic dim sum experience without going to China, try NBC Seafood in Monterey Park. The venue is huge and has a large Chinese family presence. The food servers are constantly moving around and the choice of dishes is endless. One of my favorites is the cold jellyfish and all the rest were terrific. If you're an... More

Terribly long waits during the weekends. Food is average at best. Monterey park has better dimsum places for better price.

At the heart of the Chinese population in Monterey Park, this restaurant simply stands out for its exceptional seafood offers. We always have breakfast dim sums, and they are exceptional in quality, taste and presentation.

About one block from our hotel and opening was at 8:00 a.m. about an hour earlier than other dim sum places. Good selection of dim sum on carts and additional items can be ordered from pictured menu. Quality was good and the cart ladies spoke passable English.

NBC is my go to Dim Sum restaurant, I used to live around there and it has been very consistent. Like the rest of the Dim Sum places in Los Angeles, they put shrimp in almost everything steam dumplings. It will suck if you have shell fish allergy. One thing about NBC is that they don't try to compete with... More
