Great Lunch Specials

My co-workers and I have been going here for years and it never disappointed. This time I visited with my wife. The lunch specials (fried rice, egg roll and your choice of main) are reasonably priced and come with a lot of food. We ordered the beef and mixed vegetables and the lemon chicken... read more

We ordered delivery and it was quick, and pretty tasty as well. Customer service was great while ordering over the phone, as well as the service at the door. Cantonese chow mein was pretty delicious. Not the best egg rolls I've ever had. But other than that, pretty good food and great service.

this is my go-to place for take-out. Fried rice, double delight noodles and chicken balls are my favorite. Really great value. You get alot of food for little money.

Our family has ordered from many places for years as we moved homes, but now just drive across the city when we feel like Chinese food because no other place has compared to South Sea.
