Best Chinese food restaurant

If you like Chinese food then this is the best place ever. Great slection of Freshly made sea food and very well prepared with good presentation. I enjoyed the garlic dish and Dim Sum here. Staff is very friendly and helpful. NBC also has a very good decoration for a Chinese restaurant.

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

Great selection of freshly made Dim Sum. Well rounded variety for all tastes. Family friendly. Be prepared for a wait on the weekends- no one is rushed. Tea keeps flowing. Mix the Black Sesame and Walnut soups together-.great taste. I've been here on weekdays and have had great experience as well.
