Great food at reasonable prices

We dropped in late on a Friday night and found a little gem in the midst of the Coogee restaurant scene. Good food, reasonable prices and served quickly was what we required, and this place fitted the bill.

Great place to drop in after a day on the beach and grab a tasty, reasonably priced Chinese. Food is served really fast so perfect if you have hungry kids!

Having been served a dish with pieces of frozen meat scattered throughout an otherwise piping hot meal and being declined any form of refund/discount by the ranting owner, I can vouch for this being one of the worst Chinese dining experiences imaginable. Don't!!!!

We normally have home delivery from this restaurant. It's our favourite Chinese and has been for many years. The large spring rolls are a must. Eating in is a little basic but the food makes up for it.

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 very reasonable. Even though we have... 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

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.
