“Out of time”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Excellent food and service. We shared 1/2 crispy duck, which came with 12 pancakes, cucumber sticks, spring onions and hoisin sauce, yummy. Followed with tiger prawns with broccoli , chicken with Chinese leaves and a portion of steamed rice. Pudding was brownie and ice cream. We drank tea and coke, I finished with a very retro Tia Maria coffee, complete with floating cream. The title of the review comes from the old fashioned feel of the place. That's not a bad thing, it was charming. If we stay in this part of the world I shall make the effort to revisit the restaurant . Cost? £60 for 2.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

A lovely clean, efficient restaurant with excellent staff and delicious food.

My wife and i visited the restaurant for the first time, this evening and were very impressed.
The service, layout and food were all excellent and we would both highly recommend it.

We visited mid week evening and it was quite full with a function going on as well.
There is ample parking at both the front, side and rear of the restaurant.

The food is excellent and well priced, we will certainly be returning, thank you Ocean, excellent!

“Good food and service”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I felt I needed to add a review after having my first good Chinese meal in Lincoln! By far the best Cantonese food in Lincoln with the added bonus of helpful and good staff!

“Excellent Take Away as well”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Last Friday we had a takeaway from here.
I think this was the best takeaway meal we have ever had.
The duck starter was excellent and all the mains were beautiful.
The meals are well packed and stayed hot.
We will be using again and again

“Very nice food and good service”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Stopped in here at 5.30 on a Tuesday evening. It had just opened so we were the only ones in the restaurant. The waitress made a fuss of my son and brought him a little spoon and fork to eat his first ever chinese. We ordered spring rolls and chicken and sweetcorn soup to start, both of which came out very quickly and were very good. For main we had beef in blackbean, lemon chicken and chicken chowmein with a portion of egg fried rice. All the food was hot and very tasty. Beef in blackbean was especially good! Its not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Would definately return to try some more of the menu.
