Long queue

We made a reservation on the 3rd of May 12 noon but waited almost AN HOUR for our table! The waitress said the customer has already made payment but refuse to leave and keep asking us to wait for "5mins more".

Not suitable if you are going for big days like birthday with a big group or anniversary celebration, the long wait will spoil your mood. Better reserve your table at Imperial Treasure Teochew or ION Taste Paradise.

Dim sum is good. Egg tarts and lui sa bao, I prefer Taste Pardise. The vinegar trotter is good. Har gao is good but not siew mai. The cheong fun with fritters is very special and cheong fun with prawn, both are good. A must try is their roast pork!! The cutie dim sum, we ordered dog and rabbit, can forget about these.

Do take note: Ridiculous pricing for wet tissue and pickles! Pickles like those you eat with plain porridge, 20 cent big, one pax one piece. $1.30 per pax. We paid $13 for 10 pax. When asked, the waitress said, "Chilli sauce leh, also need money"

No point making a reservation!

We made reservations at 1230pm on 28th July 2014 at East Ocean, hoping to have a nice family dim sum meal. We reached at 1215pm and there was a large crowd milling around and a long queue just to speak to ONE restaurant staff.

Apparently everyone had a reservation and the restaurant staff had a 3

Disappointing dim sum

It was a public holiday lunch at East Ocean Teochew Restaurant with the family; A much vaunted restaurant where we usually purchase our supply of deep fried fish skin from (only available during Chinese New Year). And after so many years, we finally got down to trying their dim sum.    Situated

Delicious dimsum

The long queues at this place during the weekends are justified and the wait is worth it! Although I would prefer if they had a better queuing system.

The prices are quite reasonable, and among my favorite dishes are the steamed spare ribs (super tender and the sauce is amazing), the claypot
