So I read the reviews and unfortunately believed them! We ordered dumplings for an appetizer and the inside was raw, cold and slimy AND THEN, my wife bit into a sharp piece of crab shell or something very similar. Then our entrees came and the chicken in both were RAW! My wife gave it a chance and within 3 bites chomped into a ROCK! Seriously! A rock! Looked like a pea size lava rock from a fish tank! Wtf?!?! At that point I said enuf is enuf! We told the waiter about everything and his solution was to take her meal off the bill! Are u kidding me?! We just left! Talk about disappointing!!! Do NOT go there!

Like another reviewer, I have been going to this restaurant since I was a kid. It has recently changed ownership and the new owner, Simon, has remodeled the place and it looks great! The best part is, the new owner kept the menu practically the same and the taste of the food hasn't changed. Here's the typically family order - start with the sizzling rice soup, then order peking duck, pork chop with spicy salt, the cod with black bean sauce, either the chinese broccoli or the snow peas and mushrooms, sizzling beef, and the house special pan fried noodles. The place has some of the best prices for lunch as well! I normally like to go during the weeknight around 8 or 9 but any time is a great time to eat at Regent.

I too have been going since I was a kid. My family has been going there for many generations and we will continue to eat there. The food is fantastic and you must try the squab with lettuce wraps and the Mayonnaise Shrimp!!!! BEST Shrimp in all of LA and South Bay area!!!

One of my all time favorite restaurants good atmosphere and great value (especially at lunch time)! This gem in Chinatown is nice for large families since its a lot roomier than most of the other well known restaurants in the area. Its served elsewhere but I love Regent's crispy fried shrimp with spicy salt!
