Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant
3939 N. Rosemead Blvd.
Rosemead, CA 91770
Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant is one of best Chinese restaurants in Southern California, according to several different sources. We have been to the Sea Harbour Vancouver, Canada location and to a location in Guangzhou, China, and had solid meals there, so it was a no brainer to come here. This restaurant group has about 30 locations in China. Sea Harbor serves dim sum during lunch, and traditional Cantonese dishes at dinner time.
Decor, Vibe – Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant looks just like the location in Canada. Velvet cream shades, modern wall of decor, recessed ceilings, flowery lights, decor that Chinese restaurants back in the San Francisco area lack. The place was packed with Asians. Several large parties and many families and friends.
Menu (Click to zoom into any picture)
Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant Menu has a Chinese only checkoff sheet and an English menu. Their menu is extensive and has many items that don’t exist in our area. The key to this restaurant is that they cooked to order, so everything is hot. Consequently food takes a little while to arrive, and they often run out of items. The waitress told us that some famous dishes include the chicken and pork ginger buns, stewed pork ribs rice noodles.
Sea Harbour Picks:
Fried Squid with salty chili ($6.98) was hot out of the fryer, lots of tentacles, awesome.
Chicken Feet in Herbal Soup ($6.98) bathed in a meaty dong gui broth along with angelica, these are far less greasy than the traditional style.
Vegetarian congee ($4.95) was piping hot and had lily nuts and barley. Good flavored jook hit the spot. Chives and crispy won tons on the side.
Deep fried pork dumplings ($4) were 4 super hot, airy, filled with meat, and very good. A bit greasy but well worth the indulgence.
Crystal shrimp dumplings ($4.00) had four huge dumplings or har gow. Huge mound of shrimp and top notch quality.
Shrimp and Chive dumplings ($5.00) were large and possessed lots of shrimp and chive blended flavors with each bite.
Chao zhao dumplings ($5) were also hot out of the steamer, and possessed a slight kick.
Sesame balls ($2.88) were some of the best we have had to date and we have had many around the world. Crisp, not too sweet, a must get.
Shrimp rice noodle ($5.00) was very good with medium sized but fresh, shrimp.
Sticky rice and meat wrapped in lotus leaf ($4.95) was a solid version of the classic dish. Three reasonably sized and hot pieces filled with lots of meat.
Coconut and osmanthus jello ($4) was lightly flavored and not too sweet.
BBQ Pork Buns ($4) included 3 medium sized buns with a slightly dry interior.
Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant had average Chinese restaurant service. We had to grab servers who were running around, to get things done. The dim sum here was fantastic, slightly better than our top pick in the San Francisco Bay Area, Koi Palace. Everything was hot out of the kitchen, even towards the end of lunch. The next increment up would be to fly to Hong Kong. If you’re in the area be sure to check out this restaurant, it is worth the trip.
