We were taken here on our recent visit as we love dim sum. It was a nice restaurant and the service was very attentive but we thought the quality of the food was only average especially compared to what you can find in a basic dim sum restaurant in HK. Service was much better than HK though with the ladies... More

We are frequent patrons of this establishment from their original branch in Shaw till they moved to Takashimaya but the standard of the food and service has drastically dropped, it was strange that one of the servers asked us how our food was and when we answered that the fish was left in the steamer for too long / he...

This is a place we often come back to because of its consistency. You need to know what to order because not everything fits everyone's taste. Roast pork was excellent with crunchy skin, soy sauce duck was tender, soy sauce chicken was heavenly, they might have specials on meat every weekend so ask the staff. Porridge is also very good,...

We visited this restaurant twice. Once with some friends before the Chinese New Year Celebrations and afterwards with some members of the Singapore family. Both times the welcome and service were excellent. There is a very full menu but as the name would suggest there is an emphasis on seafood. The restaurant is always very full, in our experience, so... More

1st experience i think shouldn't choose CNY period as everything on the menu seems quite expensive. The dim sum priced $8.8++ for all. It is CNY special dim sum which is not the normal that you see elsewhere. They did use premium ingredients and that marked up the price. We ordered the 3 types of roasted meat and I like... More

East Ocean has been around for many many years but the quality of its Teochew style cuisine remains impressive. The cooking style is simple and the ingredients are common but the end products tend to make you want for more.

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.
