Is there a huge Asian market in Pomona?

A Thai friend who likes to cook has heard from a friend of hers that there is a new, huge, very good market in Pomona that has a fantastic variety of fresh and other foods from all over Asia. I've tried finding something online but can only find a couple of markets that seem primarily Vietnamese and no one seems overly impressed with.

Barring that, what do you think is the best, biggest, freshest, widest selection general Asian market in the Greater L.A. area?

I usually go to Ranch 99 at Del Mar and Valley for Chinese, Hawaii - across the street - for mostly Chinese with a bit more SE Asian tossed in, Lax-C for Thai (unless I don't want to buy Costco-sized quantities of stuff in which case I go to the Bangkok Market on Melrose), A Grocery Warehouse for general purpose I don't want to drive too far Asian stuff, and a variety of others for Korean, Japanese, etc.

But I'm wondering if there is something I'm missing - some all-purpose remarkable Asian market that I don't know about yet. (By the way, is the gigantic Asian supermarket that I can't recall the name of that's on Rosemead just south of the 10, east side of the street, still there and is it still any good? They used to have an astounding aquarium's worth of live fish.)
