Best Chinese restaurant in San Gabriel?

topcatwawa Sep 19, 2011 09:16 AM

Need help to find the best Chinese restaurant that can accommodate large group of 10 to 12 people. Preferably within walking distance from the San Gabriel Hilton.

Thanks a lot!

    Do you have any particular price range, regional preference (e.g. Cantonese, Hunan, etc.), ambiance preference, etc.? Does anyone speak Chinese in the group?

      That's too general of a a question.

      Accommodate large group + walking distance of SG Hilton = New Capital in the Focus Plaza.

        I would consider Shanghai Restaurant across the street.

          I've been having a love affair with Beijing Restaurant across the street for quite some time now. It's not a big restaurant but they shouldn't have a problem accommodating 10-12.

          If you call ahead, you can experience the rare, painful ecstasy of jie mo duo (Beijing spicy mustard cabbage) but you'll have to speak Chinese to get it.

            $ is not an issue and we would love to have any Chinese cuisine. Decent service would be a plus. I speak Mandarin.

            Thanks again for all your help.

              I have become a big fan of Taste of Chong Qing if you care for Sichuan.
              Hunan Seafood is also very good if you want to turn the heat up.
              For Shanghai I would go with Giang Nan.

              Hunan Seafood Restaurant
              8772 E Valley Blvd, Rosemead, CA 91770

              Giang Nan
              306 N Garfield Ave, Monterey Park, CA

                Mei Long Village has a big banquet table (reserve in advance). Their "lion's head" (獅子頭) are quite good.

                Giang Nan is not within walking distance of the SG Hilton.

                Mei Long Village
                301 W Valley Blvd Ste 112, San Gabriel, CA 91776
