Sea Harbour, Rowland Heights Parking

Yert Quan Apr 8, 2007 04:18 PM

We are three pairs of seniors each traveling with 22 foot camper vans on our way from Northern California to Texas via I-10 and wanted to have lunch at Sea Habour in Rowland Heights. How is the parking for space and maneuverability? Or are there other equivalent restaurants with ample parking? The preference is as far east as possible with good Cantonese food. This would be Tuesday, April 10.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

    I forgot to add that one of the gentlemen uses a scooter, so stairs are out.

      The Rowland Heights location of Sea Harbour is now called Happy Harbor but it's pretty much the same food. There is a very large surface parking lot right outside of the building in which Happy Harbor is located. The portion in front of the restaurant is so large that I have never seen it full (the side lot fills up sometimes though). No stairs or anything so there is no access problem. The 99 Ranch Market Shopping center is right by the Nogales offramp of the Pomona Fwy., so it should be easy going all the way.

        I respectfully but strongly disagree. There is a hugh parking lot but it fills up really fast, especially on the weekends. But even if it is empty, it will be really hard to park one camper let alone 3. The scooter is not a problem, but I really suggest another place for dim sum.

        BTW, I drive a minivan and it is a pain to find parking on the weekends for it.

        However if you must go there, I would recommend that it be early (11 at the latest)

          I think they're going mid-week and I've never seen the front lot full on a weekday.

            Sorry....did not look at my calander. You are right about it never being full, but i stll think the camper will be hard to get in and out the parking lot.

      You might be okay on a weekday, but parking there is a nightmare on the weekend. The other option, although not as far east, is 888 on Valley Blvd. in Rosemead. You might find street parking there, and they have two lots surrounding the restaurant. Happy Harbour in RH may be okay on a weekday. Just get there early, before 11 or 11:30.

        The parking lots around 888 should be OK on a weekday, but they'll be packed by 11 AM on weekends. I believe 888 should be accessible by scooter.

        I assume you were looking for dim sum?

        I don't think the parking will be that bad on a weekday, and you should be able to park at the far side of the lot on the Nogales side. Gale is bit narrow (1 lane each way), so you have to be careful taking a left onto Gale to get to the plaza.

        Other options in Rowland Heights for dim sum is Hong Kong Palace at Colima and Nogales. They have a pretty big lot so I am sure that won't be a problem during weekday.

          Parking and access should be OK on a weekday. The other option is Riverside, which is on Colima Rd., just east of Nogales (south of 60). It also has a large parking lot.

          The place may have changed name. Is this the same as the HK Palace?

            I thought it still said HK Palace last week. But it's the only cantonese restaurant in the 99 cents store shopping plaza.
