  • I recently had company out of town that never had South Seas Chinese food. I have been a patron since the 80s. The food was terrible. The dry garlic ribs were uneatable. I thought maybe they had a new cook. So my son and I went in for dinner to give it another shot. I always loved their fried rice, but it was horrible. It tasted like fish...ugh. My son went to talk to Jimmie and it was him cooking. What a surprise! Either Jimmie is getting too old or is losing interest in the restaurant. Will never be back or order take out again. Sorry to see this happen.

  • Definitely better than average chinese food, but the prices are slightly higher than average too (maybe 10-15%). Good, consistent dining experience every time I frequent this establishment.

  • Order: combo plate, wonton soup

  • Eat in or Take out - Always friendly and fast service.

    Sauteed Broccoli is very taste, a little salty but that is how I like it.

    The fried rice is amazing.

    Serving sizes always leaves enough for left overs.

  • Order: rice, general tso chicken, sauteed broccoli

  • I have been to so many restuarants but south sea is the best. i went there last time with my college friends. The food was so fresh and delicious.we had three items and enjoyed a lot. I like their services. They have good and responsible management. They provide proper sittings with fresh environment. The prices are resonable too and a normal person can enjoy the food for 10 to 15 bucks. I like this because of its best quality services and i would like to go there again and again.

  • Last Sunday, my friends and me visited South Sea, and tasted sea food first time. We love it and I want to be there again and again. There are some points that I want to discuss with all of you. First of all, food is very fresh, delicious and well cooked. The taste and aroma was very good. Second thing, South Sea staff was very friendly and their services were very quick. There is buffet system too, and you can eat whatever you want until you can’t be full. Price range was reasonable. It was between $12.99 for lunch and $21.99 for dinner per person. At the end, I would like to say that it was amazing experience and it was special evening that we enjoyed it while having superb meal, and for sure, we are making plan to visit there again.

  • Order: Shrimp

  • Everything I've had here had two things in common, it tasted greasy and sweet. I would bet it's absolutely loaded in mono-sodium glutamate. However the Won Ton Soup isn't bad at all.

    The setting is undeniably Chinese, which is what one should expect. The place seems to be kept fairly clean. The plates are nice as well, kind of a shame to serve such terrible food on them.

    Service was okay. The young guy who served us seemed genuinely friendly and seemed to care about this place. Food arrived somewhat slowly.

    Overall, I will not be returning as I definitely felt like crap after eating the food from here.

  • Order: Egg Roll, Spring Roll, Dry Garlic Spareribs, Beef and Broccoli, Lemon Chicken, General Chicken, Kung Po Chicken, Won Ton Soup

  • I order takeout from this restaurant once per week. I always order either combination plate number 3 or 4, and they are prepared with consistenty high quality. It is unlikely that you will find better American Chinese food anywhere in Hamilton. The food is great, it is priced well, and I can get two dinners (microwave the leftovers the next day) for around $10.00. Plate number 3 is under $9.00 and I can still get two meals out of it. I have only dined once in the restaurant. The service was great. I do agree with others' comments about the decor and some other elements of the environment, but the prices and food quality more than outweigh the negative aspects of this restaurant.

  • Order: Combination Plate 3, 4
