Very mediocre

Had great expectations of this restaurant but was very disappointed. Service was good. Staff pleasant and attentive. The food was lukewarm when it arrived and not as flavoursome as it should have been. We had a large selection of different dishes. Have had much better takeaways in Lincoln

This Chinese restaurant serves a good standard of food with the lazy Susan table helping make any family meal a fun event. The prices can be a little high but that's what you pay for higher standard of food. At certain times it can get very busy so book if you can.

Not normally a fan of Chinese. However had a good meal here. Started with the New Zealand Mussels which were spicy and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Special Chow Mein with crispy noodle which was perfectly acceptable followed by ice cream which always is. Restaurant clean tidy. Staff friendly and efficient. This is on my list as an option to eat... More

After some great reviews of Ocean, My girlfriend and I decided to try it. The place has nice decor and the staff were very friendly on our arrival. We were seated immediately and didn't have to wait long for someone to take our order. We had Chicken Satay Skewers and The mixed Hors D'oeuvres for our starter. The Ribs and... More

My friend and I came here to celebrate her birthday. It was dead when we first arrived at 6pm on a Friday evening so the service was prompt and our drinks and starters were served within 5 minutes of ordering. The menu is varied and there is plenty to choose from. I think that the price is quite high though... More

I am on the business trip to lovely Lincoln city. It is my second visit and everything is great. People are nice and friendly, views take my breath away and food is splendid everywhere I tried it. With that on mind I took take away from Ocean Cantonese Restaurant. I am a foodie, but a reasonable one. I did not... More

The food here is always very good but the service is the best ever. The pace and the quality of the service is just right, your glass becomes empty and the staff appear like magic to deal with it. They are never intrusive and you are not rushed just extremely professional. Highly recommended

We had an old works reunion and decided on the Ocean in Lincoln. When we arrived we were met by the staff who were friendly, they took our coats and asked if we wanted drinks. They showed us to our table and brought the menus, the table were well set out and plenty of space between the tables. There was... More

Came here with friends and it was my first time eating here, but I will defiantly be returning! The food was fantastic, full of flavour and not greasy like some Asian style food can be. We went for a set menu between four of us and there was loads to go around! Also the beef in black bean sauce was... More
