wow, 150 people for less than 10k, good luck. I’m spending way more than that on 80 people.

888 Seafood Restaurant in San Gabriel.  I ate there once a few years ago and I remember them having a private area, but not sure if it will fit 150 people.  They may have to close  up shop for you.

New Capital Restaurant 140 West Valley Blvd., San Gabriel, CA 91776

Capital Seafood Chinese Restaurant, 755 W. Garvey Ave., Monterey Park, CA 91754 626-282-3318

Empress  Harbor Seafood Restaurant, 111 N. Atlantic Blvd. #350, Monterey Park, CA 91754, 626-300-8833


Hope these gives you a place to start.  I’m not really to sure on prices though.

I may have a few more places, just let me know around which city you prefer. =D

The Chinese restaurants mostly start at 300 per table which is low end, and upwards of 700 per table, depending on what you serve.  I think most people hit a happy medium around 500 per table, so 50 a head.

I can’t vouch for these, but these are budget options you could check:

Luminarias Restaurant in Monterey Park

Monterey Hills Restaurant in Monterey Park

Almansor Court in Alhambra

Mission 261 in San Gabriel

Rococco Room in Pasadena

Triumphal Palace in Alhambra

Ocean Star on Atlantic in Monterey Park (or Alhambra, I forget); I see wedding parties there all the time

Also, for another Chinese restaurant suggestion, try Empress Harbor in Monterey Park (it’s on the 2nd floor at the NW corner of Atlantic & Garvey). It’s not a very big restaurant, but we just had a 50th anniversary wedding party of 12 tables for my parents there a few weeks ago.  The staff was incredibly accommodating and the food was pretty good.  They keep up the restaurant decor pretty well, too.  Chair covers were included.  If you would like to see some photos of what the room looked like, email me at [email protected]

Only drawback, there was a wedding reception there at the same time and on occasion their MC/music competed with our few announcements/happy birthday singing. The room dividers are very flimsy.  For our needs, that wasn’t a problem, but if you have a couple of wedding receptions going at the same time, that could be an issue…but one you’d run into at almost any Chinese restaurant, unless there was an actual separate room for you.

 Good luck.

Try Lincoln Plaza Hotel on Garfiled and Gavey. This place is good for the budgeted bride and groom. They have a chinese restaurant that cater their food. Good Luck.
