There aren't a lot of options in the area for Chinese. None of them good, except Overseas. Their soups are good, their take-out is fast, the kids think it's cute and fun to eat in. The entrees are home style Chinese Good ingredients, good flavors. Worth a visit if you have a Chinese hankering...
This is the best Chinese restaurant in San Diego, bar none! Forget Chin's with their blah food - this is just spicy enough to be great. The Peking Duck is to die for! My all-time favorite dishes here are the Tangerine Shrimp (something I haven't seen anywhere else) and the Chicken in Garlic (Plum) Sauce, and my best friend really likes the Kung Pao Beef or the Tangerine Beef. The service is very good and the decor is simple and doesn't interfere with the meal. This is a great place to go for lunch or dinner any time!
With an ideal location in downtown Carlsbad, Overseas Restaurant is popular for business lunches and relaxing evening meals. The kitchen is readily visible when customers pass through the front entrance. Guests sit in booths with pink tablecloths. Red, gold and black Oriental pictures decorate the walls, while low lamps hang from overhead. Lunch specials are served with an egg roll, fried wonton, daily soup, rice and fortune cookie. The menu is gigantic for dinner specialties, ranging from seafood to vegetable dishes.
We go here all the time. They no want we want before we sit down. There prompt with there service and the food is great. Its a quite place. Perfect for a night away from the kids.
