Armenian banquet hall vs. Chinese restaurant wedding banquet

Are there problems with both the San Gabriel AND the Universal Hilton(next to Universal Studios) when it comes to Chinese banquets? I've heard from friends that the Universal Hilton was good.

Armenian banquet hall vs. Chinese restaurant wedding banquet

I want to have a lot of good food for approximately 200-250 people for $50-$85 a head all-inclusive so I have narrowed it down to the idea of an Armenian banquet hall or a traditional Chinese wedding banquet at a restaurant. I really don't want a boring traditional American hotel-style dinner service(dry chicken and over-cooked dry steak, no thank you) and would like a departure from Korean catered food.

Between these two choices, please let me know which you would choose and why. It would also be really helpful if you could recommend a banquet hall or restaurant.

On my short list(since I haven't started doing extensive research) are: Renaissance Banquet Hall in Glendale, Mission 261 in San Gabriel and the Universal Hilton. Location can be anywhere in the Greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas. I would love to hear a variety of opinions so thank you in advance!

Hua Wei Heng Mountain Walnut

Thanks, Will. I don't mind eating the ones in the shells because it slows me down and keeps me from plowing through the whole bag at once. Thanks for the suggestion of a proxy. My other idea was to bribe friends in China to ship them over to me and I'll pay them back via PayPal. If I see them in SGV, I'll let you know. For now, I'll have to rely on friends.

Hua Wei Heng Mountain Walnut

My friend bought a package of roasted walnuts from China, packaged by a company called Hua Wei Heng and I can't find them in the LA/SGV area. I've checked out 2 99 Ranch Markets, Wing Hop Fung and Shun Fat in Monterey Park. Has anyone heard of this product or have any suggestions of other stores I can check out?

Thanks,
