“Homemade Chinese food and good service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2010

We had been here several years ago and it still has good food and service. The server mentioned that the dipping sauce was made by the cook and he comes in the early morning hours to prepare homemade delights. The egg rolls were especially tasty with quite a lot of vegetables inside. We liked the sweet and sour pork but the almond chicken didn't have enough flavor. We plan to return here someday.

“As good as it gets!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2010

Each year I bring my staff and families to Overseas for our company Xmas party. We order over twenty-five dishes. In six years not one dish went un-eaten. Everybody raves about the food and want to go back to Overseas. The rent increases yearly as does the cost of raw ingredients. This owner buys the finest quality ingredients and it shows in his food.

“Wildly overpriced, ho-hum Chinese food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2009

The food and service at Overseas are adequate as far as it goes. The location far from the beach and next door to the post office is anything but scenic. But the wheels truly come off when the check arrives. Maybe other reviewers think the Carlsbad location alone somehow justifies prices two or three time the average Chinese eatery. But the entirely reasonable prices available nearby at Pollos Maria, Cessy's, Grubby's, Knockout Pizza, etc. (and all with much nicer atmospheres), suggest the need for more prudent shopping.
