If you order from here, be prepared to be incredibly underwhelmed and over charged. Especially if you order delivery and there is an issue.

I've been taking out for years as it was my favorite chinese restaurant in the area. Did not know they changed the management. They should have mentioned that they are now using HALLAL meat and not serving porc anymore. Never heard of a chinese place...with no porc. Will not order or go there anymore.More

There has been a change in ownership since our last visit. Prior to that food was excellent. Our most recent visit was disappointing. Appetizers were dripping with grease, vegetables were soggy vice crisp, and lo mein noodles soggy and clumped together. It was our favorite...local Chinese food - not any more.More

Good chinese cuisine and nice quiet place to grab lunch. A little pricey for dinner. Hubby and I enjoy stopping in for weekend lunch and a beer after chores are all done.

My usual take on Virginia Chinese food has been pretty bad, but after going here I had a pleasant experience. The lady behind the counter did her job and told me when my food was ready. Ive been to places like Cheng's in Centreville where...the food was good but the fried rice tastes like it has burnt egg in it. East Ocean Chinese Restaurant had an all around great dish, I ordered the kung pao chicken which was great, it had enough sauce for later but it was not swimming in it. The fried rice is the best fried rice around the area in my opinion. I also ordered the general tso's chicken wings which were awesome, if you get the chance, place an order.More

This place is the best Chinese in haymarket. It’s not NYC Chinatown quality, but it’s way better than Anywhere else in haymarket. Btw I’m Asian and know my Chinese food.

Nothing special, but good quality Chinese food. Great for takeout. Good assortment, with a few non-standard dishes.

My wife and I have been coming to East Ocean restuarant for the past 5 years and I can honestly say the service, food and atmosphere has always been excellent! Today we had the lunch special General Tso's Chicken that came with a crispy spring...roll and wonton soup that's firm and doesn't fall a part on your spoon. If I could give East Ocean Restuarant 10 stars I would!!More

Stopped because of web search rating. Small place, clean. Big screen tv. The food was great. I had cashew chicken and it was the best I'd had. Daughter had mango chicken and it was very good. Portions were excellent. Folks were nice. Checked on us...twice while we ate. It's a little pricey but the flavor and portions make up for that. You could share a meal and probably still be full.More
