We chose Paracel seafood based on previous reviews and experiences, but it wasn't what I was hoping for. I contacted Tim about my wedding plans, the types of food that I wanted, and how I wanted. Prior to my wedding day, Tim answered all my questions and concerns promptly, he was very promising. However, last minutes, he bailed on us, and substituted some useless coordinator to take over his responsibilities at our reception. I gave him the lay-out weeks before and reconfirmed how I wanted it to be, but on my wedding day, there was no walk-way, and table arrangements were off. I told the "scapegoat" coordinator that they needed to move the tables to leave room for the walk-way but she couldn't find anyone to help rearrange the tables so she disappeared. Then it came soup, seriously, inedible to the point where my guests TEXTED me during my reception and said "I'm already full from all the corn starch". What's worse? Tim said he was going to provide the champagne bottle for us to open during our cake cutting, but there wasn't any. Where is this restaurant credibility ? I don't know how to express my disappointments in words, because it's beyond my imagination how Tim promised so much but delivered so little.

Tu of Paracel Restaurant in Westminster deserves more than 5 stars. You will not regret your decision to hire Paracel. They provide both outstanding food and outstanding service at reasonable prices- an absolute must when planning a wedding.

I spent hours researching and visiting restaurants from Asian to American to fusion in search of the best food to serve at our wedding held at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda in November 2011. To this day, our guests still rave about the amazing food. In addition, Tu is AMAZING to work with- he is professional, knowledgeable about catering and weddings, and always goes above and beyond to ensure that his food and service is top notch. Paracel exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them!

When we first started planning our wedding, we knew we wanted to serve fantastic food to our more than 250+ guests at an amazing venue. We visited countless venues in OC and selected the Nixon Library. However, this venue requires you to use a preferred vendor from a list, which only listed a few options. This was so disappointing. Fortunately, the Nixon's catering coordinator agreed to meet with Tu of Paracel. Even before we booked him, Tu met with them several times to provide them all the information that they needed to determine if he met the Nixon's standards to become an approved vendor. This is just one of the many examples of Tu going the extra mile for us. The good news is that Paracel is now an approved vendor with the Nixon and he catered our wedding!

Over the next several months, Tu invited us to visit his restaurant to taste his dishes. He helped us come up with a personalized 8 course wedding menu that included our favorite dishes (Peking Duck, Lobster, Filet Mignon, Seafood Chow Mein, etc.). He also provided the lazy susan and necessary dishes/flat wear that were not provided by the Nixon for each table at our reception.

During the reception, each dish was cooked to perfection and came out timely (very important when you are serving multiple courses and still want time to dance, toss the bouquet/garter). Tu also prepared a mini plate of each course to serve at our sweetheart table, which we appreciated. Another example of Tu's outstanding service is that he packed up to-go containers that he gave our wedding coordinator to give to us to eat at the hotel after the reception. This was such a thoughtful gesture since we were so busy during the reception that we barely had time to eat.

Paracel is an amazing caterer and we highly recommend him. We hope you find this review helpful!

I hired Paracel Seafood Restaurant as my caterer at a hotel. I was already amazed at the flexibility and professionalism this vendor had given us. We had a food tasting the year before and I was happy to know they were able to switch things around for us and still was very competitive. This is the BEST bang for your buck. I saved a ton of money and my guests all told me the food was great! The cool part was they packed the food we didn't eat and sent it up to our room at the hotel! The personal touches and thoughtfulness of this caterer speaks volumes. Thanks Paracel for making it a great and memorable day for us. We couldn't have done it without you.
