World Famous Newport Lobster

Southern California’s best seafood dish, the world-famous Newport Style Gigantic Lobster, is just ten miles from the Pacific Ocean in the heart of Sana Ana, California. Tan Cang Newport Seafood is the one and only restaurant where you can find this delicious, original dish cooked with the well-guarded secret recipe. Since its opening day in 1988, we have delighted our Orange County regulars as well as foodies from around the world with the best seafood on California’s sunny coast.

Serving Fresh Seafood since 1988

Fresh is our focus. From the local ocean catches to the exotic seafood flown in everyday, Tan Cang Newport Seafood guarantees that you will eat the freshest, cleanest, and most delicious treasures from the ocean. And thanks to the hundreds of farmers in Orange County and the nearby Central Valley, freshly-harvested fruits and vegetables will accompany and enhance each plate. Of course, we maintain our quality standards for our meat dishes made with the best chicken, beef, and pork.

We offer a wide selection of seafood, meat, and vegetarian dishes made with traditional Chinese and Vietnamese recipes.

And remember, Tan Cang Newport Seafood offers the one and only original-recipe for our Newport Style Gigantic Lobster.

But none compare. With almost three decades of perfecting the recipe, no one will ever duplicate our special blend of seafood, spices, and preparation skill. No one.

Our service is equally as remarkable as our food. Some guests return for favorites; others return for new dishes; but all of our guests return because of a friendly, relaxed atmosphere that ensures everyone leaves satisfied and relaxed. Tan Cang Newport Seafood has a humble, but comfortable interior. In our 27 years of operations, we may have changed the table arrangements and painted the walls, but the staff remains as welcoming as the first day we opened our doors.

Very satisfied with my visit. I came here for my boyfriend’s dad’s birthday and he loved it !

OMG The best lobster ever! We drove all the way from Oakland CA just for these. The service was great and the food was excellent.

Newport Seafood has the best food you could ever imagine. When you bite into their lobster, you can taste all the flavors together in one bite. The lobster is tender, moist, and juicy. You can’t find anything else like it.
