    Food arrives incredibly fast, great portions and affordable prices. Must try the House Special Lobster! Not to mention there is also complementary Valet Parking. Go on a week night to avoid the crowd.

    Best Chinese food in LA! The lobster and bo luc lac are obvious must-orders. If you have a big party and want to spend, the elephant clam is a great choice as well. Do it 2 ways: sashimi and fried.

    Awesome place for seafood. The lobster dish is cooked with a lot of variety of spices from Vietnam which is quite different from the normal Chinese food.

    much has been said about the lobster: it's the best. i also like the bo luc lac (vietnamese style beef) and the greens with hollow stalks. no reservations, prepare to wait a bit. it's worth it!

    I suggest ordering the lobster for the whole table to share. Can't go wrong with that. If your hungry, just order the largest plate they have! Prices vary!

    Super popular Asian seafood restaurant. Park in the street across from the hospital (right behind newport), and walk through the taco corner.

    Everything we ate was good but the lobster, crab and beef were the best.

    I have been perfecting the menu over the course of ten years. Get the lobster, bo luc lac, muc chien muoi, and canh chua. If you have room, the kung pao chicken is good too.

    The spicy clams and beef loc lac are arguably better than the house lobster.

    Bo luc lac is delicious. Get the $28 set meal for a good sampling, steamed fish is ok but not really worth the extra $20

    Best time to go is before 7pm before dinner starts or else you'll be waiting at least 1 hour!

    Lobster is the best. However, $15.95/lb is kind of pricey. But it is well worth it. Their kung pao chicken is one of the best too.

    Did they hire a new chef? Bo luc lac isn't as good as last time. Lobster was only ok. My party of 6 decided that the drive/wait/parking isn't worth it anymore.
