Until Imperial Treasure Fine Teochew on Level 4 recently closed to make room for Kinokuniya, there were two Teochew restaurants at Ngee Ann City . ImpTreas had lots of Cantonese dishes/influence but was much more refined; East Ocean is more authentic and more 'peasant' so to speak. It commands a very loyal following, judging by the large, full 'waiting room'... More

It is always very crowded and popular. Better go with a booking and be on time otherwise the reservation will expire. Dim Sum is good, but not excellent and you don't need to try very hard finding a better one. A bit disappointed given its reputation. For example, Har Kau is not juicy though the shrimp is big. Anyway a... More

Pomfret pretty good. Some unique delicacies such as pig ears. Set lunches/ dinner pretty alright for price. Taste wise, still prefer their pomfret.

I only come to this restaurant during lunch times. Very crowded especially in the week end. But it is worth the wait. A lot of variety of dim sum. Delicious. Food is served quickly. Service is good. Try the chilly prawn.

If you love dimsum, you will definitely like the food here. Surprisingly, price is not over the top. I recommend the lobster noodle, which is around $23. Make sure you make a reservation first. Had to wait more than 30 mins. Service is fast as well.

My family has been patronizing this restaurant for more than two decades, since it started out at Shaw Centre. It's plump and succulent Siew Mai (烧卖) and ha gao (虾饺) are still the best around! The old style Teochew porridge with dried oysters, fish or fresh pomfret are also very good. My other personal favorites are almond prawn (凤尾虾), yam... More

A great dim sum place. Do make reservation in advance for weekend. Recommend to take the first seating, second seating doesn't guarantee you to be seated on time, end up waited additional almost 1 hour for second seating. The dim sum & roasted pork (do reserve a portion when making your reservation as it do run out fast) here deserve... More

I have been coming to East Ocean since it was at Lido Shaw Centre. It's my favourite "yum-cha" or dim-sum place for the Hong Kong weekend brunch atmosphere - but they have since stopped the table service of dishes... SIGH! Nevertheless the food is still great. YUM-CHA SPECIALTIES: Char-Siew Bun, Steamed Radish Cake, Harm-Swee Kok (sorry, no English translation for... More

We were here for business lunch. Being a vegan, I too enjoyed their veg dimsums and tofu-veg. They serve Flower herbal teas, very nice! Recommended Place.

Came for dim sum lunch with the family, enjoyed all of the offerings but have to say that the custard buns were the most well received on the table. We order three rounds! Will be back, come early or face a minimum waiting time of 45 minutes during the weekend
