“Still the best crabs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Went there 3 times in 4 days. Great crabs!!! Made several different ways. Many other good dishes in addition. Bit of a wait at peak hours but well worth it.

“Orange Chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I love their orange chicken with less sauce so much. It is because it is cheap and tasty, plus the rice is unlimited offered.

“Searfood lovers paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Eleven of us met for lunch at Seafood Village in Monterey Park. As the name indicates, this Chinese restaurant is well known for its seafood.

We started with creamy shrimp with honey-candied walnuts. The shrimp was delicious with just a touch of sweetness. Next we had clams in black bean sauce, ginger, and green onions. It was artistically presented, but the clams seemed too chewy to me. We were served the house crab special, which was also a spectacular presentation. The platter contained three whole crabs covered with sautéed and crispy garlic and red chilies. One of our group members said, “The crab was one of the best crab dishes I have ever had”. It was hard work getting the meat out of the crab, but worth the effort.

We also had a tofu and Crispy deep fried bean curd with bamboo fungus. Members of the group thought both were superb.

The sautéed pea shoots were perfectly seasoned with herbs and garlic. My favorite dish was the Sautéed Snow Fish Filets with Garlic and Lemon. This is reputed to be the most popular dish at the restaurant, and justifiably so.

The menu includes chicken, beef, vegetable, pork, noodle and other dishes.

“Good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

This is a great Chinese restaurant with good price and yummy food. They cook real Chinese food - fresh, tasty, and big portion. Their pepper and salt Crab is the best item. Beside their soy sauce duck and tofu is unbeatable too. Highly recommend. Good service too. Disadvantage is lack of parking spot and hard to find parking during rush hours

“Hard to find a place to park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is a great Chinese, Vietnamese restaurant but the parking is near impossible on the weekends. Tried to eat there twice and could not park in the lot and there was over a 40 minute wait even in the afternoon. Went again on a weekday (Tuesday) and the food is good. Very fresh and well prepared. Have been there a few times and have never been dissapointed with the food or service.
