Overseas is our go-to Chinese favorite in Carlsbad. Great food, the staff know us. Last time the chef made us crispy fried whole fish that wasn't even on the menu! Love their minced squab, mu-shu pork, sizzling shrimp, lo mein. Great stuff, I could eat it every day.

These days it's difficult to find a Chinese restaurant, albeit one with good food near me. I judge a restaurant by the quality of their sauces and this one is great. The second is how good my favorite, egg foo young, tastes. I ordered sweet and sour pork, which was too heavily breaded but the sauce was fabulous and the... More

Don't know why this restaurant is not more crowded? Food is very good with large portions. Prices are reasonable. Plus you get the retro Chinese Restaurant feel

Don't let our "good" rating dissuade you -- we're from San Francisco and let's just say that we've got spoiled Chinese food palates. Overseas is in a convenient location and has a large menu, so if you're with a group its a great choice because everyone should be able to find something they like. We did take-out, but there is...

After searching for a Chinese restaurant in the Carlsbad, CA area, we finally came across Overseas Restaurant. My wife and I had delicious meals with very good service from Tony and Peggy. They were both very pleasant and Peggy put up with all my questions about how long they have been at this location (28 years) and many questions about... More

This place looks like it belongs in a Seinfeld episode! Located off the main village drag, this place has killer lunch specials seven days a week. Lots of choices (even vegetarian) and it includes an eggroll, crispy wonton, soup or salad, rice and entree! They bring you a full teapot when you first sit down and can rarely finish between...

We enjoyed the restaurant. Co I got from the east coast, it's been hard to find Chinese food similar to what we are used to. Usually we are disappointed. Thus was close. But, more importantly the service was GREAT. Our server was wonderful, and patient. He coup,e at the table behind us had so many special requests and were so... More

This must be the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever experienced! Do not eat here! Went for a family meal and 3 out of 4 meals were inedible. Waitresses were very rude and obnoxious and did not offer alternatives, apparently this is how food tastes in Hong Kong, they laughed when we said we were from Scotland, and we were... More

Absolutely the Worst Chinese food in the entire world! My entree tasted very burnt and had no spicy flavors,was supposed to be Hot. Told waitress and she pushed my food around on plate..took back to kitchen said since I had eaten a very small taste of it they would have to charge me full price! Come on now...... Any modern...
