“Late Dinner at Lunch Prices”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

If and when you are around San Gabriel, California around past dinner time and planned to eat Chinese, this excellent Cantonese/Chinese seafood restaurant should be considered.

At 9.30 PM daily, the restaurant offers both a la carte big dinner and special menus.
Special menu (which is also lunch menu) begins at $5.99 till $7.99 with practically almost everything the restaurant offers. On weekends, especially on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, expect to wait around 30 minutes to be seated. But once your orders are taken, kindly wait around 15 to 30 minutes for your tasty food to arrive.
Our regular favorites are Braised Pork Ribs, Spicy Eggplant with shrimp and Stir fry lotus root with Chinese sausage. There are many more excellent offerings which we have tried and also depends on your cravings after browsing through the special menu.
For orders above $30.00, the restaurant offers specials on shrimp and lobsters at $1.00 per pound and cooked to your order.

This restaurant has already became our favorite to go to Cantonese restaurant whenever we dine Chinese. And also, this restaurant offers excellent dim sum for breakfast and lunch which we have yet to try

“Creative & Unique”
Reviewed January 3, 2010

New Capital Seafood is authentic, creative and a definite step above the average dim sum restaurant. You will find all the regular dim sum specialties tasting better than other restaurants. You will also find specialites that you don't find elsewhere. Arrive early-- 10:30 AM is not too early, as scores of people line the halllway after 11:00 on weekends. New Capital also serves traditional Chinese food at dinner.
