Lobster! Lobster! Lobster! Lobster is by far one of my favorite seafood dishes. If it's cooked right, it can be an unbelievably succulent piece of meat that leaves you feeling satisfied. This father's day, my family and I decided to treat my father (who is an old-school Chinese dad) to a decent seafood restaurant that would offer delicious lobster. The best part about the restaurant is that the people who run the place is of our Chinese ethnic descent: Chiu Chow, Teochew, Chaozhou...whichever you prefer to call us.
Royal Capital Seafood Restaurant is a true, authentic Chinese seafood restaurant nestled amongst fine Vietnamese restaurants in Little Saigon. The food is Hong Kong style cuisine with more than 200 items. The exterior and interior seems like it hasn't been remodeled since it opened its doors, but don't let that lure you away from sampling this restaurant.
|Fresh seafood tanks
The restaurant boasts live fish, lobster and other shellfish for your enjoyment. The staff fish out the seafood from their multiple tanks for you to choose the size of the lobster, crab, or whatever seafood you so desire for your dish. If you're not a fan of seafood farm to table (literally), then you may want to turn your head on this one. But, you can guarantee what you're eating is super fresh.

|HOUSE FRIED RICE STICK-PAN FRIED ($11.95): A simple fried rice dish with vegetables and shrimp. It was good but it's just fried rice. How good could fried rice be?
|TAPIOCA DESSERT (FREE!): Sweet, warm and delicious. The broth had a nice, coconut flavor to it. The best part? It's free!
Overall, Royal Capital Seafood Restaurant is a great place to gather your friends and family for some delicious Chinese food. The portions are large and they offer a lunch special on a number of dishes that is truly a bargain (though it is not applicable on holidays). The dessert is free and the staff are pretty accommodating. They could revamp the place but if you're just basing it solely on food, the place is legit. Word of advice: the place can get pretty crowded on weekends so go early or expect a wait.
