Will go forever!

I have been going to "Joycies" (only name I know it by) since I was born... 36yrs! It's a true institution in Coogee. Old fashioned, nothing fancy Chinese. Short soup will always be my favourite dish, home made spring rolls are to die for and husband loves the old fashioned fried rice. Prices are... read more

Nothing fancy here with the decor. Not high class at all. After all, this is good old fashion Chinese. Its been in Coogee for over 30 years. Eastern Sea is all about the food and reasonably priced as well. Many (Aussie) locals eat here all the time and that's really all you need to know. Plenty of take-away going out... More

When you feel like good Chinese food nothing else would do and after a three hour walk to Bondi Beach and back I was starving. As a Canadian, traveling in Australia, sometimes you don't have access to WiFi and therefore a connection to a myriad of fellow Interneter's take on local food. I definitely recommend searching online review's before venturing... More

I have been going to eastern sea for over 20 years and it never fails to deliver. The San chow bow, the special fried rice the combination soup the Mongolian beef. Yes for sure there are the old favourites but they still taste good

I have been coming here for over 40 years now and I have never walked out unsatisfied , my favourite is the large homemade spring rolls and their crispy skin chicken.

We had delicious hot and sour soup, crispy skin lemon chicken (exquisite) and beef in black bean sauce ( lovely slices of top quality beef) and tea. There was no charge for corkage and the service was excellent. The restaurant was also producing a high volume of takeaway with the cars double parked outside.

I've dined here a number of times over the years, most recently in early December 2013. I've mostly always had the same basic dish, I'm not sure of the English name but it consists of egg noodles with wanton and char siu. I find the dish to be suitable here as it isn't too oily. The dish set comes with... More

There is nothing fancy here but the food is really good Chinese. The restaurant décor is quite basic but the service is fine and the prices are very reasonable.
