“Delicious food, healthy ingredients, generous portions, at very reasonable prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

This was the first place my wife and I ate dinner once we got into town for our 2012 Disney vacation. They were nearly closed, but let us in and treated us like we were their best customers. We ordered two dishes, which came with plenty of rice, and had enough to cover our lunch at Disneyland the next day! To top that off, our bill came out to around $20-25.

They were so good, we made sure to place a large to-go order on our way out of town, which lasted us two full days of meals! :)

“Excellent service, Sparkling flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012 via mobile

Who ever raves about the service at a Chinese food restaurant? We do now. Wait staff did a great job serving us, keeping glasses filled, and attending to every need.

Food had bright, crisp flavors. Most of the sauces, even spicy, had a sweet undertone to them. This is not our norm, but still great. Huge amounts of food. Fifty dollars bought two full meals for a family of four. $9 ma po tofu was served in a brimming nine inch pie plate. That is a lot of food.

Go! If you like Chinese food you will not be disappointed.

“Definitely a "MUST EXPERIENCE"!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

My husband and I love to check out new restaurants and we love seafood and Chinese food among our favorites. During Mother's Day weekend, we searched for the best Chinese Seafood Restaurant and one this restaurant stood out with lots of positive reviews on Yelp. We knew we had to check it out.

When we got to the restaurant, there was a big wedding going on but there was someone outside the door, directing customers to the right section of the restaurant. As soon as we got there, we were seated immediately. The staff was very friendly and very attentive. From the reviews we read, we knew we had to order their "world famous" House Lobster with Yien Noodles. Since it was our first time here, we had no idea how it's prepared or how big the lobsters were. We were told afterwards that they are cooking a 5 lb lobster for our dish! It was rather alarming at first as we didn't want to spend too much on dinner so we asked how much the lobster was per pound and we were pleasantly surprised on how truly reasonable the price was. We also ordered their Three Flavors Sizzling Rice Soup while waiting and it was delicious!

When our order came, it was this gigantic dish and it smelled so yummy! We ooohed and aaahed... we've never seen anything like it! On our first bite, we were hooked... IT IS THE BEST lobster dish we've ever tasted!

As we savored our food, there was this super nice lady named Joyce who came by our table a few times to check on us and make sure that we're having a wonderful experience. I see how she interacted with the other customers. She's a gem! She made us feel really special. In fact - all of the servers, managers and staff were very cordial and very efficient!

We had a most amazing experience at this restaurant and already have plans to go back in a few days. I have already told many friends about them and will continue to do so.

If ever you're visiting Disneyland or the Orange County area stop by King Harbor Seafood Restaurant and you'll be pleasantly surprised by what you'll experience there...

“As good as it gets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

I had the opportunity to go back to King Harbor two weeks ago and this place was great without any doubts. This restaurant is striving to break out of the oily backroom reputation that so many Chinese places deservedly have.

Very fresh, very clean and offering wonderful food. That evening I had the Jumbo Prawns Yeemein, Shrimp with Walnuts, Shaking Beef... Delicious!!!

The staff were friendly and attentive as usual.
