Best Chinese restaurant in the area

This is a mom & pop Chinese restaurant that has been in its current location for over 20 years. The owners use high quality ingredients and cook everything to order. The room is elegant in an understated way. Service is excellent. The food is uniformly tasty.

Good Chinese food and a nice selection. We order several times a year and they have been consistent in quality, but a suggestion: check your order to make sure you get all that you ordered, including coupon additions, like a free egg roll or soda. Remind the staff before you leave of your coupon items, so you get all you... More

Always fresh and perfectly cooked. Chinese shrimp and vegetables take top honors in my book. Try it out!

Avoiding crowds of the Atlantic City, tried this restaurant. Service was initially slow but got better as time went on. The restaurant was almost empty but had a busy take out service. Food was tasty, portions okay for price. Menu needs cleaning, some pages were sticky. Overall a nice little business, away from hustle and bustle of the vacationers. I... More

Since we have a shore house in brigantine we don't usually go outside the town to get Chinese. However the lack of quality has forced us to drive. Well I'm glad we did. Hands down one of the freshest and best tasting Chinese we have had in years!

I go out of my way to get food at China Sea. Freshest Chinese food in the area. The restaurant is very clean, attractive and the service is great. Their food is prepared to order. Fried food is crispy and sauces are never gummy.

The food is really good here and I grew up dining in Philadelphia's Chinatown so I can be a harsh critic of Chinese cuisine. The wonton soup was freshly made with pulled pork instead of minced ground pork. The egg roll hot and crispy with not an overfill of cabbage. The main course, which was sweet and sour shrimp was...

Loved the quiet table and excellent food and service. Beats those buffet places with delicious quality selections. We've been back a second time and were similarly pleased.

Today my sisters and I ate at the China Sea for the first time and it will NOT be the last time. The food was all freshly made and tasty. Didn't have any "frozen" taste or feel to it. The shrimp roll is the best I have ever eaten. The service was excellent
