East Ocean Restaurant is one of the most famous Chinese restaurants in Sydney. Located in the heart of Sydney's Chinatown, East Ocean is open from mid morning to early in the morning 2am. Yum Cha is served during the morning and lunch times as well as a full Chinese al a carte menu for lunch and dinner. East Ocean specialise in seafood dishes.
There is a full wine menu available which East Ocean won the Wine List of Year Award from 2010 - 2013. They were also a finalist in the 2009 Metropolitan Awards for Excellence (Chinese Restaurants).
Many celebrities are known for eating at East Ocean due the high quality of the Chinese food they serve. It is also a popular place for other chefs to come for a late night feed after their own restaurants have closed. East Ocean Restaurant has been operating at the same location since 1985.
I go to East Ocean every few months to have their Yum Cha. In my opinion it is the best Yum Cha in Sydney. The food is consistently good and the restaurant is always looking immacuate and the service is great. I usually go in with a large group of work colleagues of around 8 - 10 people and they have huge tables so we can all sit at the same table and get the biggest selection of dishes. No doubt my favourite Yum Cha restaurant in Sydney.
