Posted by Foodnut.com, May 12th, 2014

Champagne Seafood San Mateo exterior decor

They closed the Buffet in April 2014 and re-opened, yet again as Champagne Seafood Restaurant in May 2014. The new format is almost identical to the pre-buffet restaurant but has a new Chinese name and some different dishes. They redid the internals and create a large dining room and eliminated the private rooms. You now have to order dim sum from the check off list that comes complete with pictures for dim sum newbies.

China Village Review, Belmont

Posted by Foodnut.com, February 11th, 2013

China Village Seafood Restaurant Belmont Exterior

China Village Seafood Restaurant is a Chinese restaurant in Belmont, California just off the Highway 101 Ralston Exit. They have been around since 1996, serving dim sum during both lunch and dinner, as well as standard Cantonese Chinese cuisine. Dim sum costs more at dinner, presumably because it is freshly warmed up. We visited for a dim sum lunch and dinner. They use carts and servers to dish out their dim sum. They had 59 types of dim sum on their menu. Our last visit was in April 2014 when we dined for dinner but ordered some dim sum!
