Pretty good Chinese food and good scenic location. Service was relatively prompt. My only issue is that they were not very good with refilling our water, although it did seem quite busy when we were there.

Chinese food. Try the Baby octopus with seaweeds -- yummy. The shrimp on toast is a bit dry. Long wait line, try and reserve early for tables by the window. place tends to get crowded and quite noisy. Come early on weekends, parking is limited. Fast service.

All my dining experiences at "Hong Kong's East Ocean are memorable and the food's consistently of gourmet quality, whether it be dim sum, dinner or wedding banquet. A definite plus is the scenic location overlooking both Bay and Golden Gate Bridge as well as the skyline of San Francisco. The service is also great.

This restaurant is at the end of the spit of land jutting out into the Bay in Emeryville. During lunch, the place is jam packed (even on week days) with Chinese families coming for both the dim sum and the view. Th dim sum is excellent, with many variations of the old style street foods. The view is fantastic. Look... More

The restaurant has a great location , but was very busy and packet. The menus are a bit confusing and poor as were mainly focused to the Chinese Clientele. I bit disappointed by the noddles but the seafood and the chicken were delicious. A bit expensive for the quality of food served and most of the Waitress barely speaks English.... More

Went there with my best friends. Sunny day and can see through the beautiful bay from our tables. Foods services just like other Chinese restaurant, quick and painless. Dim sum is average, but the portion is slightly bigger than London, U.K. However I am yet to find a very good dim sum in San Francisco yet. The search is continue....

We have been to many dim sum places in bay area but this restaurant is our favorite! The dim sum is always fresh and excellent. And one probably cannot find a better dim sum location than this. It locates at the edge of Emeryville by the shore overlooking the newly opened bay bridge. Dine in the restaurant with ceiling to... More

If you are not Asian, don't go here. Food was very good, but we were constantly snubbed when an Asian group came in. Our waiter spilled our soup on the table and all we got was a "sorry" not even an offer to clean it up. we had to ask several times for tea and we passed by many times... More
