West Coast Seafood Buffet-Closed
West Coast Seafood Buffet
1655 Azusa Ave.
Hacienda Heights, CA 91745
I like buffets, especially if the food has a lot of turnover. One of the best Chinese buffets is West Coast Seafood Buffet. The buffet is $17.99 and well worth it.
King crab legs,served hot, is great. These are no snow crab legs but the bigger, better tasting King crab legs. Sweet and tender and just a treat. The best part you can go back for more and more and more. The only problem is that they don't always refill the tray when the crab legs are gone.
I usually don't get sushi at buffets but I decided why not. I got two pieces each of the ahi tuna, yellowtail, and salmon. All were pretty fresh and tasty. Not the best quality fish but it was pretty good.
Shrimp cocktail. Nice and fresh and about medium sized. Good stuff.
I got the fried rice, green beans and corn. The fried rice was pretty basic, rice, some peas, eggs, and carrots. Interesting that they didn't use soy sauce. Most of the fried rice you see are brown from the soy sauce. Still it was pretty good. The green beans and corn were cooked pretty well. I found the corn to be very greasy. Why can't they just steamed the damn thing. The green beans also had some oil on them but not as greasy as the corn. Pretty good stuff.
The last picture has grilled steak, chicken teriyaki, and satueed shrimp. The grilled steak is done right there at the buffet line. Pretty tender for a buffet and good flavor. The steak is more than likely top sirloin and USDA Choice but it was good. The chicken teriyaki was mostly white meat and tender. The shrimp was also tasty.
Service is OK. It took awhile for the server to take away the empty plates and refill the drinks.
But West Coast Seafood buffet is about the seafood and they give you good quality seafood at a good price. It can get very busy, a 45 minute wait on Fridays and Saturdays, but it's well worth it. One of the best buffets around and at $17.99 a steal of a price.
