Excellent Food for your dollar! – This place always has the best Chinese food for the money. Lightning fast service! Always crowded and extremely busy, so don't expect the staff to have perfect manners 100% of the time. However, you can tell that they make a huge effort to be kind and satisfy all customers.
Food was great, but... – Me and my parents went to eat here for lunch yesterday (Easter Sunday). The food was good as we've been coming here for a few years now. When we had to pay the bill the waiter told us to go to the counter, which we did. The lady there didn't even look up as she was taking orders by phone one after another, not even a "I'll be with you in a few moments." We stood there for about 10 minutes until finally she rang up the credit card and we paid. We might consider not eating there. They could use a few pointers in customer service.
Fantastic Chinese! – Visited on a Saturday early evening, around 5:30. The place was beginning to fill up at that time, and there were plenty of Chinese people at tables. The place was packed by 6:30, so before you go, be sure to go early. The menu here is daunting - there are easily 75 choices, plus seasonal specials. The food is quite reasonable, and they give you enough for 2 nights worth. The family dinners are an absolute steal, starting at 10.95, you get soup, appetizers, your entree, fried rice, tea, and dessert. I personally had the small lobster (11.95 for dinner), which had been stir fried in an amazing sauce. I won't lie, it did get messy at times, but it was so good I didn't care. The service was wonderful and quick despite the full dining room and massive take out service they do. You must give this place a try.
Great food, large portions, good prices – I prefer this Seafood Port over others because it excels in almost everything I look for in Chinese food: good tasting dishes, enough to get full, and relatively cheap prices. For example, shrimp dishes seem to be $3 less than other places. Whenever I go with friends, we always at least get the walnut shrimp and "french steak," so I recommend those. And I'd say if it's a special night, get the house special lobster. Simply amazing.
Best chinese food around... – There may be a thousands of chinese restaurants in So Cal and I wish I could try them all, but of the dozens I have tried, this is bext Chinese food I've found since Happy Valley restaurrant closed in chinatown...
Have not been disspointed with one single thing I've ordered to this point! [4-5 visits] Can't wait to get to the rest of the menu!
