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"

East Ocean has lost the plot:
 - They charge $1.30 for "pickles / towel" PER PERSON. And this includes the chili. What this means is, if you want either the chili or the towel, the only way you can have it is by paying for the "pickles / towel" package, even if you don't eat pickles.  There is no option to pay for just the towels, and chili is clearly not free here.  Whereas other Chinese restaurants may try to surreptitiously load the pickles onto your bill but would let you remove it upfront, East Ocean goes a step further by making it not an option to decline the pickles, if you want either the towel or chili.
 - They charge $1.00 per person for plain water.
 
 Not sure when exactly this happened, but they just lost a long-time customer. I just deleted their number from my phone today.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
