  • I used to get my Chinese from South Sea, but I have switched to Shanghai. The food is the same if not better, but is much more affordable. Egg rolls are awesome. Beef and Vegetables is great. Rice is great. Nothing bad to say except for the appearance of the front of the store, but it's a take-out joint so I don't care what it looks like except that it looks clean, which it does.

  • Order: Dinner for 4 special

  • Worst Chinese meal ever! Ordered sweet and sour pork and every piece was full of small bones and gristle, it was awful. We threw the whole thing out. The beef curry was okay though very very mild and the chow mein was not too bad. We have had okay meals here before, it isn't our favourite Chinese place but it is near us so handy. But after this last experience we will never go back.

  • Order: Sweet and sour pork, house special chow mein, beef curry, steamed rice

  • The delivery service is first class and always reasonable time.

    The prices are reasonable and so are the portions you get.

    My grandmother used to use this place for chinese food and we've used it ever since. I highly recommend this place if you like great food and great service.

  • Order: Dinner for four

  • 1974 was first time I went there, grew up just a few blocks away. Now in my 50's, I go out of my way when I'm in Hamilton just so I can get what is easily the BEST Chinese take out I have had. Service remains great, portions abundant, always fresh & hot.

  • Order: in 35 years, I've tried everything, rarely disappointed

  • The food here is always ready on time, always fresh, always tasty. I eat here at least once every two weeks (take out only) and i always like the food. wonton soup is good, large portion. Notable is the egg rolls, they are different than the usual, they don't have the same shape and they are bigger! The service is good. I have no complaints!

  • Order: cantonese lo mein, general chicken, egg rolls, wonton soup, lemon chicken, etc.
