Ocean Harbor is the quintessence of a dim sum cart restaurant. As with the other dim sum cart places I've been to, the experience was fun and exciting - being able to point and choose what you want off the carts. The food here was good - not too greasy. Definitely the authentic experience. We came on the day after... More

Dim sum at Thanksgiving was excellent, eat there several times a year, always a great taste experience. Food is fresh and hot, so many choices to choose from, if you like dim sum, you will love it here !

Not easy to find street parking can be rough. Not the best service difficult to communicate with staff. Average dim sum selection slow to come around. One nice shock was a very clean restroom.

First time there. Have never had Dim Sum before. Be ready to order as soon as you sit down. Wide variety of choices. Affordably priced. Not much to see in the way of decor or ambiance but you're there for the food

My wife, my sister and I visited for dim sum brunch. We loved it! Plenty of food carts delivered fresh and flavourful food frequently. The waiting time to be seated was only a few seconds until about 10:30 when the entry line began to form. We enjoyed a fresh hot pot of Jasmine tea along with banana leaf wrapped sticky... More

We were a group of 6 visiting on my birthday. We waited about 20 minutes at around noon. Not too bad. The food was good, with many dim sum choices. Menu items were also available. We enjoyed it but it was pretty loud and hectic. But that's how dim sum is in Hong Kong anyway!

It was very crowd space, we waited 30minutes to get a table. The small dishes were very testy, but at acceptable price. It worth it to try one time in your life

My wife and I are from Hong Kong so we know Chinese food well. We had dim sum for lunch here. The quality of the dim sum here was comparable to most mid-tier Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong. We had shrimp dumplings, Char Siu Bao, deep fried beam curd and a pork and egg congee. We had thoroughly enjoyed each... More
