“OCEANS APART FROM OTHERS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

An excellent meal. Last evening my husband took myself and our grown up son out for a meal to celebrate my birthday. I had asked to have chinese and he came up with this fantastic restaurant. The portions are perfect. The service is good/excellent, although we had a slightly lengthy wait between our crispy duck and our mains, but the restaurant was very busy and it was fine. The wait staff were polite and attentive and the food was freshly cooked and excellently presented. i would certainly recommend this restaurant

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Used this restaurant since moving to Lincoln many years ago and still the best for both dine-in and take away Chinese food. Always helpful and attentive staff looking to serve excellent quality food and the owners involvement, as mentioned before in the reviews, makes for a welcome change. Well done, don't stop doing what you do best!

“Cantonese food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Long established and still the BEST. Excellent and pleasant service. Brilliant to find the Owner overseeing his business with a hands on approach. The food is exquisite and I am salivating at the thought of it as I write this review.l like my food and I don't like small portions.Plenty to eat great to leave a dining table and not want fish and chips on the way home. Pleasant atmosphere with good on site parking.

“One of the best Chinese restaurants in Lincoln”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Being Chinese I am normally disappointed with Chinese restaurants outside of London as they tend to be more Westernised, and I crave the more traditional dishes (like chicken feet! Haha!).

Although The Ocean is still a Western-style Chinese restaurant, what makes it stand out is the sheer quality and freshness of the food and the great service from the attentive staff.

Though not the cheapest restaurant around Lincoln, it's still good value because of the great food and service.

Although I still prefer traditional Chinese fare, the Ocean offers one of the best Western-style Chinese eating experiences in Lincoln.

Food of plenty and fresh ingredients. Good prices too. The banquet menus can be pricey though. Good service and relaxed atmosphere.
