For our annual holiday gathering, a Chinese restaurant was the last choice and Capital served Peking duck. After selecting a variety of dishes, they turned out to be pretty good choices. From the house specials: filet mignon and green beans, the usual wonton soup, walnut chicken, bbq fried rice, noodles, etc. Friends ate what was served and enjoyed it, even the picky ones. Different flavors, not too spicy.
It was tempting to order dimsum, but the dinner menu was quite more enticing to experience.

The ambiance is sumptuous and speaks opulence. The service is on par with excellence. Kelvin, our waiter, behaved as if he were our personal concierge. It was surreal.

Mz and I decided to begin our Saturday Fun Day with dim sum.

Tea is offered upon being seated and soon thereafter, chili paste and Chinese mustard is placed on the table to pair with the meal.

Seated on the patio, I was concerned about the frequency or rather the infrequency of the carts traveling in our vicinty. My fears were allayed when several carts in succession greeted us with their delicious delicacies.

Kelvin placed a specials menu and a dim sum menu with photos for our viewing pleasure. He indulged us with laughter and fantastic service. He hustled to nourish our bellies and to ensure our provisions were plenty.

Being aware that Capital Seafood prepares their Chinese broccoli with oil, I pleaded that it be steamed and he compromised by immersing the broccoli in hot water. Now, why can't all men be so accommodating? Lol!!! Hehehehe!!

We gathered with friends for a celebration this weekend and enjoyed great food. The DimSum was fresh and tasty. This is a very busy location and the staff were keeping up with demand quite well!

Call ahead if you have a large party. This location is in the Irvine Spectrum and it's always busy!

This restaurant has the best noodles I've tasted! We've been here twice. Once for dinner and once for lunch. Dinner had a more formal atmosphere while lunch was more of the informal push cart dim sum. This place was absolutely packed during lunch. Service was quick and the food was very good. Prices are reasonable. We will definitely come back.

Do try the BBQ pork pie and sweet tofu during Dim Sum hours. The best combination for brunch. Price is OK.
