I say surprisingly good because the location is a strip mall in a nondescript part of Gardena. But this place delivers fresh and delicious seafood, including some order ahead King Crab and great dim sum. There is plenty of parking and a full bar. We...More

Typical chinese restaurant atmosphere, with very good food, visited by locals a bit crowded. Service was good, except for the bar which was well stocked but poor service. Under staffed for the evening that we were there. Suggest reservations especially on weekends.

We have eaten here 3 times: dim sum, Wedding Banguet, dinner. The food was excellent each time. The seafood is the best, especially whole fish. Not a fancy place but the food is great if you like cuisine from southern China.

This place is located in Gardena. This food is good authentic Chinese food. I suggest you try the Peking duck and the fish maw soup. This place is good for big family and friends. The price is affordable and the serving is generous.

The Sea Empress was crowded with Chinese diners. We were the only Caucasians. That is the best recommendation one could give to a Chinese Restaurant. At $20 (a Special), the Peking Duck was excellent. The Walnut Shrimp was better than excellent, done absolutely perfectly, The...More

First time ever to eat this sort of food. It was a little overwhelming if you don't know the drill. They sit you down and the carts start rolling a round you with a bunch of ladies asking you what you want off their cart....More
