Elegance, trendiness, delicious, and 5-star attentiveness are the keywords that come into mind when mentioning South Sea Restaurant. Absolutely the most remarkable presentation of food I've seen. Very very stylish plate presentation. The plates themselves are so elegant. Very beautiful square plates and bowls. They garnish everything with unique flowers. Equally a hit is their service. The Chinese boy that served me is always so bubbly and charming I can't help but smile he takes my order. A definite must try. The prices are very low too. An authentic Chinese Restaurant that also serves some of the traditional Thai dishes. The restaurant is located where all the fabric stores are on Ottawa street. I got one of their take out menus, and it says they even have a website: www.southsea.ca
This is my favourite Chinese Restaurant. The staff is excellent. The food is generous and looks as good as it does in the photo. The the kitchen soup. It is wonderful
amazing! Service is very professional and there is much attention to detail the food quality and plate presentation. Dining room is very comfortable for hosting parties.
Amazing presentation! Absolutely delicious food with a huge menu. If you're having trouble deciding what to order, they have a complete picture version of their menu in their dining room. The cocktail drinks are prepared very beautifully with fresh fruit. All their plates are very trendy (they're all square plates!). I love the authentic Asian decor and the soft Chinese music they play while dining. Service was top notch. Very attentive and extremely personable waitstaff. I had a wonderful evening and will come back very soon and bring my whole family. The place was busy so you know it's great food. Food was served very promptly in light of the high volume of patrons.
I have never been to South Sea but have heard it from a colleague at work, so we tried it out dining in. Without any question, we received the most outstanding and charmful service by the young Chinese guy who served us. He barely looked 20, but yet he knew practically the contents of every entree by memory, where it was on the menu, plus he gave me a detailed overview of the best recommendations in a pictured menu. No server has ever been so thoughtful to do such a gesture. He also made my group the best cocktails ever with beautiful presentation and fruit garnish as if we were really on a tropical resort. I ordered the "Electric Lemonade" and the "South Sea Peach Paradise", and they both tasted superb. He was making drinks for other tables as well. and you can tell from his technique and moves that he's a professional bartender like you would see on TV. The food was excellent and you can taste the fresh ingredients they use. I had their executive dinner for 4 which came with 4 courses, Wonton soup, and a deluxe appetizer combination platter. Their spring rolls and general chicken are the best I ever had anywhere. Our guy server was also handling take out orders and answering phonecalls. I have never seen such charisma and professionalism in such a young individual. Wonderful meal, but outstanding delightful service to go with it. Will be back just to be served by him again!
Excellent Excellent Excellent! I always love eating at South Sea for lunch. I bring in new business colleagues all the time. It is a very nice atmosphere to dine and to have a meeting with clients afterwards. The staff is very good at recommending new items to sample.
Love the Chinese food. Love the Chinese containers. The containers make it a fun Chinese dinner experience. Have told all my friends about it and they are regulars just like I am. Very classy Asian style restaurant with reasonable prices.
Excellent food, excellent staff, and excellent presentation! I will never go anywhere else for Chinese Food - South Sea is a hidden treasure that should be enjoyed by all!
Excellent service. Best Chinese food around. The only one I will order from. Have been a customer for as long as I can remember.

. Best Chinese food around Excellent service and fast
Best Canadian/Chinese food anywhere around, Friendly and fast service.
I have come here for years. The food to me is one of the best in the city. There may be some lower priced places but don't chance it. Mandarin eat your heart out.
This is by far the best chineses food I have ever had....will not eat anywhere else
This place looks like a dive but it is the best chinese food we have ever had. Great food, great service, I couldn't recommend it higher! Get the general chicken! It's the best.
Order a few times and the food is GREAT and service for delivery was fast. Be going back again
Best Chinese food In southern Ontario even the colonel eats there.
Excellent food and service. Staff members are so nice and polite. I definitely recommend this restaurant for Chinese food. Chicken delight combo is amazing. More than enough for 2 people and priced under $10.
Been going there for years, tried other places but they dont compare! i always go back to South Seas.
excellent food...but don't try going there for New Years Eve...chaos and over an hour behind/late on pick up orders!
Love love the General Tao Chicken and Sizzling Beef!!! So yummy and great service too.
Excellent food and great friendly staff. I love their noodle dishes so much!!
I visited there a few days ago. Haven't been to this restaruant for years. The food is excellent, well priced, a wide variety of choices and the service is fast and friendly. Great atmosphere as well. And when you ask for green tea, you actually get tea leaves in a huge tea pot with a chinese drinking cup. Now, that's Chinese tea!
junk food got way better in the frozen food section at no frills
I found the food here ok but unfortunately, when I ordered the soo guy with mushroom gravy, the gravy looked and tasted like it should be thickened water. What a disappointment. There is a place on the mountain that knows how to cook mushroom gravy. Much better than this paste. And the prices there are less expensive for more quality than South Seas. Unfortunately, I no longer live on the mountain and they do not deliver here. I give them a fair. After having really good chinese food, this disapoints.
I get takeout from South Sea every week and it has always been excellent quality and fresh and SO delicious! The best singapore noodles and general chicken I had. I recommended to my family and neighbours and they all said it was amazing. I like going there for lunch too for their huge bowl of Kitchen Soup. If you want great quality and consistent Chinese food, there's nothing better than South Sea!
All the food was very enjoyable :)
The food is excellent. Love the way they make their hot and sour soup and Singapore Noodles (ask for it to be spicy as their chili sauce is amazing). Food is always fresh and hot from the woks. My go to restaurant for Chinese.
Always good always fresh always friendly
We have eaten at South Sea Restaurant Several times, and we have never been disappointed. Although small, and usually only 1 server, the food always comes hot, and fresh. It is our favourite Chinese Food Restaurant in all of the Hamilton, Ont. area. Enjoy!
Excellent been goin there for 30 years always good
I was looking to order south sea but they didnt even pick up the phone at all.
Sooo good!!! I love their General Chicken so much with Beef pan fried noodles. Been going there for years. Keep it up South Sea!
