try the dinner surprise – The peking duck was quite a pleasant surprise (esp at half price during weekdays). Unique dishes like razor clams make this a favorite destination for my family. Unlike Chinatown Manhattan, parking is relatively easy. Dinner is definitely worthwhile. Don't let the decor deter you.
Honest Opinion – While dim sum is not too pricy, but there's definitely better dim sum elsewhere. In Brooklyn, on 61st street, try out Jade Palace. And Most restaurants in Chinatown's dim sum beat out Ocean Palace by a mile.
Great place of familes and friends – Can take upto 30 mins. for seats, usually during weekends 10am-12pm or holidays. Lots of waiters hanging around so you will have no problem ordering from the kitchen or getting a cup of milk tea or coffee. Wide range of dim sum and food. If your of non chinese ethnicity or don't know the language, your better off going with a friend who does, because theres usually different variations of dishes from the kicthen that you mite prefer.
Ocean Palace Delivers – Best Dim Sum In New York...Excellent food and service...great family environment...kids love it!
Wonderful – it is the best dim sum restaurtant i have ever encountered.
"mmmmmmmmmmm!" – When first I visited Ocean Palace, it customers wre over 90% Chinese, and the food was authentic, not for the Anglo tourist trade. I sought no changes. As more caucasians learned of this wonderful restaurant and demanded things like "Chinese noodles" and "rice with every dish", the restaurant attempted to comply. It is still 5* dining to me, but not as it was when first I succumbed to the delicacies of their cuisine. Unfortunately I now reised in Albany, NY, and my visits to Ocean palace are far too limited - but should anyone visit the Capital Region of New York, we have Emperors, which is much like Ocean Palace, and has suffered the same deterioration due to an attempt to please the caucasian visitors.
Not worth the trip – Everything tasted very bland. The seafood did not taste all that fresh. It was probably due to the lack of business. I was there on a friday evening and there were only 1 other table.
Dim Sum Delight – So inexcpensive that you'd wonder about the sanity of the owners, if they weren't such good cooks. Classic dim sum is served by a helpful waitstaff, who gladly identify each rich delicacy for the novice -- and there's plenty of delectable shrimp dumplings and pork buns, if you really are that unadventurous. There can be a huge pileup by the lobster tank of people waiting to enter at peak dimsum time, but the besuited staff keeps the line moving, and it's worth the wait. Entrees are equally good and inexpensive.
