Capable of seating approximately 450 people at once, Crown Seafood Restaurant is the newest and largest banquet-style Chinese restaurant to open in Houston’s Chinatown. Prominently located in the center of the Lion Plaza at Bellaire and Wilcrest, this restaurant specializes in live seafood such as whole fish, dungeness crab, lobster, geoduck and spotted prawns, which are held in tanks and cooked to order. The menu also includes more than 50 options for beef, chicken, duck, seafood and noodle and rice dishes. Open seven days a week, Crown Seafood also offers weekday lunch specials from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and an excellent selection of made-to-order dim sum — some of the best you’ll find in town — for lunch daily. This restaurant has plenty of accommodation for large parties and families of ten or more.
