Need recs for WSGV Sichuan or Cantonese

pizzafreak Dec 18, 2007 05:07 PM

Need recs for a good restaurant for a family dinner for 10, non dim sum. My family is coming from NYC, has heard a lot about the Chinese cuisine here, and wants to try it. Thanks for your help

    I'll second Sea Harbour for Cantonese.

    Another cuisine that you don't find (yet) in NYC is vietnamese-cajun seafood boil. If you family likes seafood and spicy stuff, check out Boiling Crab at Alhambra. The wait is wicked, so go early.

      For Cantonese you might consider Sea Harbour in Rosemead or Elite in Monterey Park. Both are new style, higher end restaurants and are unlike anything you can find in New York.

        Best Szechuan Chili & Seafood
        230 N. Garfield Ave., #12D
        Monterey Park

        Or for the same genre:

        Chung King Restaurant

        Monterey Park

          I think that Best Szechuan Chili & Seafood is gone.

            That's a shame. The really had good Szechuan food. How about Lucky Dragon?

              LD is still open. Love the food but I wish that the servers would keep their fingers out of the cold items counter stuff and that they would keep it cold!

                There's alot to like at LD, for sure.
                The water boiled dishes (fish or beef) and Chongching chicken rock me more than Chung King's versions of these Sichuan classics.

            Is that the good Chung King? I have heard there are two or three with similar addresses.
