It's a while since we had eaten at the Overseas 101 mainly because it doesn't open on Mondays and we always seem to be in town on Mondays. Anyway, we had cause to be in the Springs today and decided to give our old favorite another try. First up, I noticed a few things gone from the restaurant - photos... More

Not sure why it is reviewed so high as my experience was not very good. Fried rice was greasy and tasteless with no added veg or meats, lo mein was spaghetti not lo mein noodles, heavy breading on chicken, other dish had chewy chicken, not very pleasant experience.

My daughter and I decided to give this place a try because of the good reviews. We were not disappointed! I don't know how someone said the food was bland? Total opposite! And, I'm a good cook! Not upscale or high quality but, it's not expensive. Small place that could use updating but, a lot of places could! The beef... More

I went in cold - I didn't know if they had what I wanted because I didn't have a menu at home. Mama was sick, and knew what she wanted. So, I went into the restaurant, asked if they had this, that, these, and those. The owner (?) was very accommodating, and the young lady serving the tables was very... More

Awesome Chinese food! Neighbors highly recommended Overseas 101 to us, and they were right! We ordered dinner portions (at lunchtime) of Lemon Chicken, with fried rice, hot and sour soup, wontons and eggrolls all included. Fortune cookies plus regular cookies upon finishing. More than enough for two meals from each order. Total price $26.00, for what is essentially four meals--... More

We decided to take a chance on this Chinese restaurant located in a strip mall, and we are so glad we did! While the inside dining area is small, the portions are big, and at a very reasonable price. Most importantly the food was great! For great Chinese food at a reasonable price with large portions, this is the place!

This makes the third time I have eaten here. I have ordered something different each time and it is always very good. The service is prompt, the food arrives quickly and there is always more than enough. Five star food at a very reasonable price.

We are big fans of almost all all types of Japanese, Chinese and other types of Asian food. Eating sushi, dumplings, tofu, mild and spicy foods as well as trying new menus draws us to Asian restaurants wherever we travel. Cooking dishes in our wok at home is our standard 'go to' meal so we are big fans of Chinese... More

The food is always good, and the service is always top notch. The staff is very good with my kiddos, (5 and 7) it's a great place for a family dinner. Great prices as well!

We've eaten at Overseas 101 for years and don't remember a bad experience, if there ever was one. Hidden in an awkward inner corner of a strip mall, it doesn't look like anything special or worth a visit, but it is definitely a restaurant to try. The food is always good. We like the Hot and Sour soup but the... More
