With summer vacation officially in full swing, many are heading to the highly-esteemed Chinese restaurant, Seafood Village, to kick off the good times ahead. Located on the lower level of Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort and Spa, Seafood Village welcomes friends and family, serving a vast array of authentic, Cantonese-style cuisine at its finest.
“Usually during this time of year, we host a lot of graduation parties, as well are equipped with speakers and microphones upon request. The rooms can service both small and large groups.”
With a variety of lunch and dinner party menus to choose from, diners are sure to enjoy Seafood Village’s flavorful dishes derived from some of Hong Kong’s most celebrated recipes.
To start, favorites including Steamed Oyster on Half Shell with Black Bean Sauce ($13.95) are sure to please any appetite. “It’s a very simple dish, but takes skill to execute well because the balance of sauce, garlic, onions and other seasonings has to be perfect,” says Guan.
For the best of everything, Guan also recommends Wok-Fried Ocean Harvest Basket ($22.95), which features an impressive spread of Kahuku prawns, calamari, fish fillet, scallops stir-fried and mixed in an edible crispy taro basket.
“Chinese culture is very big on dining together, family-style, and enjoying every dish as a community, however small or big it may be. So, we cook our dishes in a way that complements as other large parties,” says general manager Yao Ming Guan. “To accommodate these parties, we have two deluxe private rooms that everything else on the table,” says Guan. “Using fresh, high-quality ingredients and enhancing them with authentic Chinese flavors has always been our strategy since we opened more than 20 years ago.”
Seafood Village also offers a kamaaina discount to all Hawaii residents with proof of identification.
