About Overseas Seafood Restaurant

From afar down Springvale Road you see a bold brick building with a subtly peaked Chinese pagoda roof, and from up close you get a whiff of the steamy, aromatic air that confirms this is the local temple to Chinese cuisine in Forest Hill. In a large, spacious dining area with plenty of natural light, Overseas Seafood Restaurant runs the gamut of Chinese cuisine, with a strong emphasis, of course, on seafood. Live scallops and oysters are brought even more to life (if that’s possible) by delicious ginger scallion sauce and the like, luscious lobster comes in various forms including foie gras accompanied or steamed with shao hsing wine. There are long menus of Chinese roast specialties, abalone and air-dried seafood, alongside countless non-fishy options like braised pork trotter, beef spare ribs in red wine, barbecue char siew, salt and pepper quail and much more. If you’re looking for unforgettable Chinese food in Melbourne’s outer east, do not look past Overseas Seafood Restaurant.

The food is good and price is very reasonable. The Peking Duck is highly recommended. Yum Cha is good also. Strongly recommend, except parking might not be sufficient.

The food is good. Restaurant is rather noisy as not be good for someone who wants to eat and chat. During payment, the cashier and a waiter tried to convince us to purchase the food vouchers, which is confusing!

Very rushed Birthday dinner for grandma. Service was ok but hurried with a smile. Felt pressured to order extra after waiter suggested that it was inadequate. It was an expensive last minute addition of king prawns $85 for 12 prawns! It was served very late & we were too full to eat. Had to take home. We were there by 5:15, ordered dishes promptly, encouraged to move along, bill handed to us by 6:45. We managed to have the cake & song, photos cheerfully taken by waitress, cake portioned & served real efficiently quickly. Out before 7pm. Yes, us seniors got indigestion. Too popular to suit us.

We booked two tables about 20 people in total on Saturday 22 Apr 2017. The foods were not bad and reasonably priced. However, we found the restaurant was a bit disorganized. Some menu we pre-booked was not recorded. We waited for more than 10 minutes and no one bother to take any orders until we asked. Teas were ordered but only served after 15 minutes. Overall rating.. good food... but poor service, understaff and disorganized. Jerry Ng & Family

Nice ambience though slightly cramped with chairs too close to the next table. Service was slightly slow due to peak time but this is expected. Food was great though a dish came out below expectation compared to the last time we ordered that same dish.

Keen services. Most dishes were tasty except the red wine beef spare ribs were too chewy and over cook. Reported but no service recover for this compliant dish. Good sales and marketing strategy to sell the coupons before get the value dishes such as Peking duck in $9.90 or Yum Cha dishes in $5.5 each.

Good food, adequately friendly customer service, but we were there at almost closing time, the staff were busy trying to clean our table before we actually finished our food. Also a little bit pricey, but will definitely be back!

The restaurant provided my family with a very nice meal. The workers there were also very efficient and provided quick service. We had a lovely experience at Overseas.

the peking duck was delicious and there were 2 extra wraps. The last time we were given about 10. we had 12 this time. It was crowded so service was a tad slow.

Food and service is just ok. Flavour wise, some dishes didn't rate or compare to other competitors in the same area. Spacious room inside makes it easy for large gatherings.

Food good, service horrendous. They only interested in pushing all the food out try to get you out of the restaurant in shortest time possible.
