Vast and glossy, this reliable Cantonese restaurant is chaotic for dim sum and a bit more refined at dinner; we’ve had several memorable dinner parties in one of its private rooms. The dim sum, served in the usual way on rolling carts, is fresh and varied, and the seafood is consistently excellent; don’t miss the salt-and-pepper shrimp, the whole steamed fish and the crab in black bean sauce. See what looks good in the tanks before you order.
145 N. Atlantic Blvd., Monterey Park, 626.308.2128, Hong Kong seafood/dim sum. L & D daily. Full bar. MC, V. $$
