Tasty and QUIET restaurant in Monterey Park or SGV?

Hi Chowhounds, I am meeting a business client tomorrow (Saturday) around 2pm. I'm looking for a tasty and quiet place tomorrow to meet so we can have a nice meal but also talk...and hear each other. Got any ideas? Thanks so much, any asian cuisine will do (chinese, taiwanese, shanghainese, vietnamese, thai, etc)

  1. Many places will be winding down their lunch service by 2 PM, so it might be quieter in general. 101 Noodle Express in Arcadia might work out for you but I've never been there on Saturdays.

    1. Twohey's in Alhambra

      Dorados in Monterey Park

      Vietnam Restaurant in San Gabriel

      Beijing Pie House in Monterey Park

      1. re: ipsedixit

        the last one depends on whether or not there are northerner chinese there

        Last time i went there i could only hear these beijinger/northerns yapping away with zero regard for others in the establishmen

      2. Must be asian? I would just be a little concerned about the cleanliness of the tables at some of the better joints, in case you were going to be looking at papers. Dean Sin World is solid and small enough that it will never be loud (plus it's usually pretty empty). If non-Asian is in the mix, Cook's could quiet down by then.
