This the first of two Chinese Dim Sum restaurants that I went to on 2 consecutive days, the other in Monterey Park, Ca. Comparing the two, not only the prices for this one is much higher, the taste and quality were also not as good. This restaurant is located in South Orange County and in a very nice shopping center.... More

We invited a few friends with my family on Christmas day for casual lunch. Dim-sum quality and service were excellent. I recommend the following : children/sticky rice wrapped in leaves, beef meat ball, shrimp dumpling, white carrot pan cake, braised pepper beef and fried rice. I am sure you will be a happy man after all these dishes.

This is the place to go for dim sum. It's very fresh, good quality, great selection. The servers that come to the table offer you an attractive selection of items and know enough English to explain to non-Chinese customers what each dish contains. There are also menu items to order such as noodle dishes, vegetable dishes, interesting soups to share.... More

This is a good place for dim sum with good, typically brisk, service. The food is brought out on carts as well as hand-carried by the servers. They have a great variety (see photo), and one can order off the a la carte menu as well. We had the Peking Duck, in addition to all the dim sum dishes, and... More

A classy Chinese restaurant with good selection of a variety of dishes. Well prepared, tender sizzling beef and excellent seafood noodles are highlights. Service was prompt and efficient. The dim sum is also very good at lunch. Not crowded even when the trendier restaurants that share a shopping plaza with Capital Seafood have huge waits - this speaks to the... More

So Capital Seafood is your typical chinese restaurant in OC-meaning it'snot bad but it'snot great either. Like most of the chinese restaurants in So. OC, the food is good enough to satisfy your your craving for chinese food but nothing memorable. So food,service, ambiance are all good-just not great. So you ask what is a memorable chinese restaurant for me???... More

In the typical dim sum style, Capital Seafood bustles at lunch. Customers coming & going, carts piled with steamy dumplings, platters delivered from the kitchen & waiters keeping the chaos under control. Each meal is unique and fresh, brimming with exotic flavors. They have a full bar if you're not headed back to work. The location at The Spectrum means... More

Dim sum is always an interesting eating experience, however many of them do not offer you a pleasant space, nice décor or even high standards in food preparation. This place was nice, beautifully decorated. Nothing to do with old dim sum places I have seen in ChinaTown in San Francisco or New York. A great experience and great food.

Thank Lmadrid
