One of the very first and best Chinese seafood restaurants in the Washington Metropolitan area, our restaurant has been a hidden treasure in Rockville since 1987.

The restaurant specializes in award-winning, authentic seafood dishes that have earned us a reputation as one of the best local seafood restaurants. We are proud to serve some of the freshest catch in Rockville, purchased from local suppliers. Maine lobster, Dungeness crab and tilapia swim in our in-house marine tanks until a guest places an order. Nothing enhances our house specialties more than using fresh, quality ingredients!

*It's a custom in Chinese restaurants for guests to be shown live seafood as proof of freshness. This step is optional, so you are welcome to skip it.

A forerunner in innovative Chinese cuisine, we never stop trying to improve our offerings. We've won over our customers, as well as food critics from Zagat, the Washington Post, the Washingtonian and local food bloggers. Incidentally, our large tanks have become a part of the Seven Seas dining experience. It's a delight to all guests, as is our laughing, golden Buddha statue.

Seven Seas is also known for offering Old World Chinese fare at reasonable prices. What's unique about our menu is that we draw inspiration from the regional cuisines of China. Using Mandarin wok stir-frying methods, our talented chefs can whip up dishes that will please your palate - whether it's classic American Chinese General Tso's, mild, fresh flavors of Cantonese favorites or fiery Szechuan peppers, you've got everything under one roof.

Customers who have special dietary needs know that we're great at accommodating practically every request. Gluten free options? Yes. Kosher soy sauce? We've got certification for that. Less oil, less MSG or steamed options? Most definitely. Everyone that dines with us should have feel at home and not worry about what they can or cannot eat. We just want you to have a good time.

So the next time you're hankering for some good Chinese food, visit us! We look forward to seeing you soon!
