Rosemead >Seaworld Seafood Restaurant
favorite dishes, dirty place, rude staff, delicious dumplings, pretty good dim sum, cold andor oversteamed leftovers, always helpful managers
Dirty place and rude staff but decent dim sum. I go to dim sum almost every weekend and this would not be my first choice. Yes the food is good, they have all my favorite dishes - from the regular dumplings to the more "exotic" (?) chooses of tripe and chicken feet. But man is it dirty in there! Each time I sit down, I know someone at my table has to return their dishes or cups because they have remanents of previous eaters. Yech! They don't even bother hiding the dirty dishes that were cleared from tables. Just make sure to inspect and wipe down the cutlery and dishes before use. Also depending on where you sit, you might not even get access to some carts cuz all the food would have been taken before it gets to you. And if you show up after 130pm, forget about any food...you'll just get cold and/or oversteamed leftovers. I"ve rarely had to wait too long for a table - maybe 10-15 minutes, very opposite of other dim sum restaurants. The parking can be difficult but managable. and the staff - rude, except for the managers who of course are always helpful and have a different attitude than the wait staff.
Pretty good dim sum. Went for lunch on a Saturday with an old friend. We tried this place fearing Ocean Star would be crowded. It's pretty good. The dumplings were delicious, and the chicken feet were spiced just right. A large seating area; it may take a moment or two before a server comes along with what you want. Be a bit patient. They do have takeout at the adjacent door.
