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...More
