Great local place with courteous service

Nice local place and I can't recommend enough eating in. For whatever reason, the people watching here is outstanding. There is always something bizarre going on. Aside from that, the food is great, reasonably priced and huge portions (I usually get the orange chicken and make 2 meals out of it... read more

My wife and I ordered delivery from here a few weeks ago. Being that our favorite local place went out of business, we've been trying to find a new local Chinese spot with quality food. After they told us 45 - 60 mins for delivery time; it took an hour and a half for two meals. When the food finally... More

I've been enjoying Chinese food from South China for years now. The food is consistently delicious, the service is always friendly and the prices are very reasonable. The combination dinner is the way to go: soup, entree, rice, egg roll and dessert, most for under $10. Highly recommend!

This family run restaurant is wonderful in every way. The food and service was superb. Our family group of 7 was seated at a large round table. Our many dishes were brought out very quickly, and passed around. Each one was delicious. My only wish was that I lived closer.

We have been dining at this neighborhood Chinese restaurant for 30+ years. The food is consistently good and service is always consistent. It is nice going into a restaurant where the management knows who you are. The General Tso chicken is excellent and I would also highly recommend their Satchuwan Combination.

First visit to South China, so ordered a myriad of food. The service was fantastic! A very attentive and busy staff, and very courteous! The vast majority of the food was excellent! Great hot & sour soup, the fried rice actually had flavor without having to drown it in soy sauce, and all ingredients were nice and fresh. I do... More

After over 10 years of eating at this restaurant and using Mr. Lee to do over 25 home parties I am convinced you can not find a better deal anywhere. His food is always extremely fresh, he delivers it on time, it is always more than you expect and the price is amazing by comparison to local caterers. This is... More

We have lived in Cooper City for 20 years and we still love South China for reliably good Chinese food. We sometimes go there (my choice) or get take-out (my husband's choice)....either way, they are efficient and the good consistently good. I like Shrimp in Lobster Sauce and my husband likes the Chicken Szechuan Lo Mein (medium spice). The fried... More
