Firstly not sure if this is the same South Beauty from some of the reviews as the branch we went to was very close to the Shangri La and was in one of the shopping / office towers. Whilst we didn't ask for it we were ushered into a private room with its own facilities. Very nice and would suggest... More

The food here was just terrific, tasty and succulent. It wasn't oily but just fried to perfection. We did order a lot and everyone just suited well to our taste buds. Service was fantastic and the bill was not over the top either.

The resturant has had a recent make over and is now cleaner and brighter. Like most eateries in China it's more about what not to order as opposed what to order. We went down the route of spicey and it more than delivered , Chicken , Dry Beef , Beef in Chilli sauce, Green Bean and minced Pork. Fresh made... More

South Beauty is located in a mall adjacent to the downtown waterfront. While we did not have a bad meal it was far from special falling well short of my expectations. The dining room was modestly decorated - rather plain and the lighting was too harsh. The food was somewhat uninspiring. It definitely could have been more spicy (it was... More

When my friends asked me to meet them at South beauty, I wasn't sure it was an eating establishment but after the meal, I was a very satisfied customer. The restaurant is located in the Daring Harbor shopping mall on the south end of the building upstairs. This shopping facility is on the east end of the Olympic Sailing center.... More

I had the good fortune to visit this restaurant with a colleague from Sichuan, so he picked all of their best known dishes. The food was outstanding, and very reasonably priced. If you like spicy food, you can not do much better than search out one if these restaurants.

I have eaten at South Beauty six times and everytime has been enjoyable. It is a little expensive when you focus on the inner your face items, but if you plan accordingly you can still bring it in on a medium budget. It is located at the end of a Shopping plaza that is not that universally liked (over-priced) which... More

South Beauty is located directly on the end of Darling Harbor shopping plaza. The extensive menu features many seafood dishes, with a specialty of spicy fish. No bones! You can request a regular table, or a private room for quiet intimacy. The staff is vey gracious, speaks good English, and is very helpful in their service. A great evening with... More
