I've ordered from this place for over 10 years and I NEVER will again. The past two times that I ordered from them my order was incorrect. I called and they shared that they would replace my entire order and apologized. When I called back,...they said they would only replace a part of my order which is not what I was told. The lady was there yelling and screaming at me about an order that they messed up. Unbelievable. I can't believe Ive ordered from this place for all this time and they treated me like this. This is unacceptable. They just lost a very loyal customer.More

Ordered online which included no contact billing with my credit card. But delivery guy refused to leave food unless I signed receipt. I am in the extreme high risk group for the virus, and kept telling him I can't be near anyone and already paid...online. He demanded I sign it. I put on a mask and got my own pen, and told him to leave receipt atop food and go out to sidewalk. He refused then finally did so. When I went out to sign he came back up the steps despite my yelling to get away from me. He was right next to me even though I was screaming at him. I signed as quickly as possible and ducked back inside, immediately calling the restaurant. The manager excused his behavior as "he's not very educated". Well, I am not going to die because they haven't educated their workers months into the pandemic.More

The ratings are accurate! We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the individual attention we received from the staff. It was worth the time and money. This will be our go to place for Asian food. Very Well Done!

The food here is typical american chinese (at least the food we ate was). The vegetables are incredibly fresh (were preparing for the dinner rush when we arrived. Portions are extremely generous we had an addional meal with the leftovers. I enjoyed the Jasmine tea...also. Our waitress was a very friendly younger person who gave awesome service.More

The food here is consistently good both quality and price with large portions. There are many choices on the Lunch Special but it's not available on Sunday (full price). The place is very small so often we have take-out.

The food here is just amazing!! The best time to come is lunch so you can try various options to get a taste before you splurge for dinner. The wings and fries, shrimp and broccoli, fried rice, general tso's chicken/shrimp are just SOME of the...dishes which are ALWAYS on point!More

Consistently above average Chinese take-out. Their delivery is quick and reliable.The portions are large. The food is good but not great. It is better than any other carryout in Alexandria. All good reasons to patronize them.

I'm not a Chinese food snob, but I appreciate good Chinese food when I taste it. South China is by far the best Chinese I've had in the Alexandria area. Everything I've had on the menu has been good. The staff is friendly and I've...never had a problem with my order. They offer Malasyan food as well, which is also worth trying. I typically stick with the chef's specials when eating here, but wouldn't discourage you from trying other items. The crispy beef is a favorite, and the fried rice is done well.More
