Dinner with the family and friends. Food was not bad but service was pretty non-existing while have at least 5-7 waiters wondering around at any given moment. 4 dishes for $220 makes me to reconsider whether it is worth the price

A few words from East Ocean Restaurant

For a sensational seafood experience, look no further than the East Ocean Restaurant located in the heart of Chinatown. Established in the 1980's East Ocean had a change of management in 2001. Since this time the restaurant has undergone a considerable transformation.

The dining rooms have been refurbished so that you feel as though you are dining amongst royalty. The main dining room seats over 400 people and is perfect for large wedding banquets, business functions and conferences. The three private function rooms have karaoke systems and are suitable for business functions and parties.

A number of the chefs have China national grade qualification. They use their vast experiences to create sensational dishes using fresh produce such as Tasmanian lobster and Queensland mud crab. You may even like to choose your live seafood from the tank.

Specialties include King Crab which is available as three courses - Braised with Ginger and Shallot, XO sauce or Salt and Pepper and Noodle Stir-Fried with King Crab Roe. The superb Peking Duck is served as two courses . First the Roasted Peking Duck is served in a Chinese Pancake with Shallot, Cucumber and "Hoi-sin sauce". The second course may be San Choy Bau, Noodle with shredded duck, or Hot-and-Sour soup. East Ocean is also known as one of Sydney's leading Yum Cha restaurants.

A sommelier has been appointed and is available on selected evenings. He will be happy to guide you through the international wine list and advise you of the most appropriate wines to complement the extraordinary dishes available.
