The food is absolutely delicious, I would give more than 5 stars if I could. As I am a student, I usually take takeaway's and the food is always ready quickly, hot... More

We put this... More

We booked a table for 5 adults on a Saturday evening and we all enjoyed a lovely meal at the East Ocean in Ipswich. We selected starters and mains from the fixed price menu and the food was top quality. Special praise for the crispy beef and prawn dishes. Endless pots of jasmine tea ended the meal. Attentive but not... More

Fast service - good quality hot food. Considering it was a Friday evening at peak time and spur of the moment when driving near by they served up our takeaway within 15 mins. Really good and will definately use them again.
