If you want a good Chinese meal, don't go here, the food was HORRIBLE! It obviously came out of a can & wasn't homemade. They could have at least doctored it up & not make it look so disgusting. The coating on my friend's chicken was inches thick, nothing like biting into a mouthful of flour. Anyway, the waitress was... More

Had dinner here before going to DTE. Food was perfectly cooked, with fast friendly service. Dinner prices average $13 which includes soup, egg roll, amd with most dishes rice. Portions are enough for 2 to share. Lunch menu prices (until 3) average $8. Casual, clean, relaxing atmosphere.

I stop at least once a month to get carry-out. We've always had good food, and good service. I have to disagree with some of the reviewers claiming the food is bad. We've never experienced that. The waitstaff are all Chinese and most have very limited English skills, so this could explain why some have said the staff was not... More

The best Chinese in Clarkston. Consistently good, nice staff. Carry out is faster than dine in. Love the chicken with pea pods, fried rice and egg drop soup. My husband enjoys the pad Thai. We are lifelong customers!

I am glad I didnt read any of the bad reviews before going because we absolutely loved the food here. We ordered the "Dinner for Two" which was: A choice between egg drop soup or Wonton soup, 2 egg rolls, Almond Chicken and steak Kow. It was served with a choice between fried rice or white rice. The cost of... More

Food tasted musty. just not very good. the chicken, beef and pork were very chewy. People were nice and veggies at least seemed fresh, but the rest of it was nasty. I never met an eggroll I didn't like, until now.....

One of the worst Chinese meals. Cashew chicken bland without sauce, chicken chewy. Spring rolls greasy and soft. Fried rice tasteless with unusual texture. Stomach ache all night. Will not go back.

We decided to stop at East Ocean for lunch--the second time that we have eaten here. The restaurant decor is attractive, although it seems to lack the ambiance and intimacy of some of the Chinese restaurants that we have enjoyed in the past, where the room design provides more privacy from adjacent tables. We were greeted promptly, and we ordered... More

We stopped for lunch while our car was next door getting tires. Very good and enough that we split the dish and were completely satisfied! Had two really good egg rolls also, service was good!
