Consistent quality!

We have been there a few times now, as it is 5 mn from Subang airport, and it has been a regular good service and quality cuisine. We had there a kind of late lunch at 03 pm, we were the only table in the restaurant, and enjoyed a warm welcome and a good fast service. Chilli crab, butter crab,... read more

I really enjoyed my lunchtime visit here. We were taken by a work colleague and was a real treat, I think if I had been in Malaysia without a local I would never have found this place. The restaurant has what looks like a giant aquarium area with dozens of tanks full of all seafood you can imagine, you soon... More

The food here is consistently top quality. Whenever I'm back in KL I have to make a trip to eat at South Sea. Not only is the food very fresh (they have an extensive area where you can chose all different types of live seafood) but the preparation is excellent. They do have a menu but the best way to...

Being one of the few last 'survivors' in this area after the international airport shifted to KLIA/Sepang, the restaurant is a true testament to the quality food it serves. Do note that the price is not very cheap but then again, one must pay more for good seafood. Mostly catering to business crowds and above average families, South Sea is... More

We live close by so South Seas has been a regular haunt of ours. 1. Service - well as you may have read some of the reviews, they do have a take it or leave it attitude, seemingly due to their busy nature. This is apparent esp with their mgmt, and their head waiters. They are never kind when you... More

Was here in the early 80's. Lots of changes. Very nice environment. Food is great here & pricy but it was a little dissapointment for the first dish...Yee Sang. The Salmon meat was rotten. However they managed to change it to our request for seaweed. Can consider coming again.

Visited for lunch, It’s a tad bit far from KL, but was worth the trip. The ambiance was nice, not a lot of people when we walked in. we were seated in the Air conditioned area. They have large tanks holding fish and the ones holding the lobsters and spider crabs were amazing! Our group of 9 choose the set... More
