Saigon Seafood Harbor Exterior

Hong Kong Saigon Seafood Harbor is a popular Cantonese Chinese restaurant in Sunnyvale. It has been located in a strip mall for about two years.
When we went at 745pm on Saturday, it was so crowded that we had to wait 30 minutes to get in. They are also very crowded during lunch for dim sum.

Decor, Vibe – A little above the typical Chinese restaurant in decor. Painted fish on the walls, tons of lights in the ceiling. Restaurant was filled with large tables of families and friends. Very loud and crowded.

Menu Pictures

Full listing of Menus

Picks:

Saigon Seafood Harbor Steamed Chicken

House special Steamed Chicken ($9.75) is their signature dish. Many people were getting this too. Not a lot of meat on these chickens, but very flavorful meat. Delicious salty peanuts. Included a garlicy dipping sauce as well as a spicy sweet sauce.

Saigon Seafood Harbor Roasted Duck

Roasted Duck ($9.75 half) was a good dish that had some dense meat. The meat needed dipping into the dishes’ juices to enhance its flavor and mellow the texture. Lots of star anise flavor.

Saigon Seafood Harbor Steamed Rock Cod

Rock Cod Steamed ($32.50) for a live 1.25 lb fish from their tanks. They had lots of 2lb plus ones for even more. Expensive but super fresh and steam cooked perfectly with ginger, scallions, etc. Tons of bones.

Saigon Seafood Harbor Boiled Shrimp

Boiled Shrimp ($10.99, 1 pound, special) Our server told us it was on sale tonight, so we had to try some. These were smaller shrimp and extremely tasty. Gotta suck the head to ensure you get all the good stuff. It came with the standard soy sauce based dipping sauce.

Saigon Seafood Harbor Red Bean Soup

Free Cold Red Bean Soup Dessert

OK:

Saigon Seafood Harbor Chinese Broccoli

Chinese Broccoli with oyster sauce ($5.50) had tons of blanched vegetables and oyster sauce on the side. Decent quality produce prepared in a very healthy manner.

Pans:

None

Saigon Seafood Harbor Sea Urchin

They have some exotic items like live Sea Urchin served sashimi style.
Service was better than the typical Chinese restaurant. Our plates were changed several times. Tea was refilled promptly.

Prices are reasonable compared to other similar quality Cantonese Chinese restaurants. This is one of the better Chinese places in the South Bay. Sold food, large menu.

We would still place top notch Chinese places like Koi Palace a notch above Hong Kong Saigon Seafood Harbor.
