Having lived in Korea for four years, I was so bummed to not be able to find some of my favorite dishes back in the States. I was close to giving up hope until I found Ocean City. The restaraunt is ok, the staff is ok, but the food is AMAZING!
They have a special Korean menu that has all of my ""joong shik"" favorites like jjajang myun! I ordered the jjajang myun and slipped in to masticatory nirvana.
If you're looking for the 'real' stuff, go to Ocean City. If you've been there and only ordered from the standard menu, you're missing a whole world of deliciousness!

I have been going to Ocean City for over 10 years and I am sad to say I will not be going back. Tonight I found a fiber in my food. The waiter was standing right there when I pulled it out, he took it quickly into the back to show to the cook. I proceeded to sit there and listen to the cook and manager yell back and forth, watched the waiter get a fork to poke in my food then come back out. He proceeded to tell me it was my hair because no one there has blonde hair. I also do not have blonde hair. He then asked me if I wanted my food back. No offer of a new dish or a discount. Just the food they had all poked around in back. Needless to say I was disgusted and do not recommend others to go there.

My husband found the place kind of by mistake and now it is the only place we go for Chinese in Salt Lake City! It is not much to look at both outside and inside and the parking is not great but the food is worth it! For a starter try the fried potstickers! They are the best I have ever had! Beware the chili sauce that comes on the side if you don't like things too hot! For dinner, I would recommend sesame chicken which has never disappointed me! My husband gets different things every time and has loved it all but his favorite has been the kung pao chicken which has just the right amount of kick. Egg drop soup is wonderful and the hot and sour is okay. And the service is fantastic! We get the same waitress almost every time and she is so sweet. Even when we don't get her, the service is always excellent! I would recommend it everyone but just warn you, appearences can be deceiving. Dont judge this book by it's cover! It is great!

We found this place by mistake while looking for a different restaurant. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Friendly service. Chinese food and Utah is no longer an oxymoron. Fried pork dumplings (pot-stickers), chicken with brocolli, and beef with green beans were all excellent. A little too much corn starch in the Hot and Sour soup, but no other complaints. Try it, you'll like it.

So, you've been to Korea, right? Let's say you're an RM (There is practically nobody else that ever goes to Korea for any other reason -eh?) You'd like Some Chinese Food, Korean style, right? THIS IS THE PLACE! When you are in Korea, and you go to a Chinese restaurant, you get stuff that you can't get when you are in America, wanting to go to a Chinese Restaurant. TANG-SUE-Yook? Oh yes, JAJANG-Myung, yep! This is the place, the KEY is, ask for the KOREAN MENU. It's in Korean too. The chef is a Korean, so he wanted to offer both choices, the poor American styled Chinese food, and the real good stuff - the KOREAN Chinese food. I found this restaurant by talking to some Korean's @ the U. I was lamenting that I couldn't find my favorite ""korean"" food. They said go there. They were right!

If you're looking for a new place to try, I recommend going to Ocean City. Everytime I've gone I've been greeted and seated promptly, service is usually fast even when it's packed. The staff is always friendly and ready to serve your every need. And for anyone that's looking for some great korean food, they have a separate menu with some authentic korean favorites, just ask your waiter about it. Overall, Ocean City is a great place to try it's affordable, good food and a relaxed atmosphere.

This is nothing different than dozens of other Utah Chinese American restaurants and possibly a little worse due to the immense egos of the proprietors.
A definite one to miss and wouldn't be missed if it went out of business. The Jasmine just to the west is a much better choice but still sub standard.

After reading the reviews I decided to try Ocean City. The atmosphere was okay, but nothing special. The service was friendly. Unfortunately I can't say anything nice about the food. The fried wontons were hard and chewy. The egg roll was too frightening to even try. The sweet and sour chicken was worst I've ever tried. It was almost impossible to find the tiny chunks of chicken (quarter inch by quarter inch) in the large balls of batter (1-2 inch by 2 inch). The rice was forgettable and the soda was badly watered down. We ended up leaving with most of the ""food"" still left on the plates. Very disapointing and hard to believe the reviews for this place.
Ocean City is not only the best Chinese Restaurant in SL, it's one of the best restaurants period. The food is great but the best part is the service. The management makes you feel right at home and there are always a dozen people to fill your class, clear your plates, etc. My wife and I love this place and try to go as often as possible.

I highly recommend this restaurant as I've never been disappointed after repeated visits. Ocean City isn't expensive yet their food is some of the best in the state. The service is great, they don't ignore you after you order like some places do. Try their hot&sour soup particularly if you usually get egg drop soup and don't ignore the little menu on the table as it has some great dishes not on their usual menu. My favorite dish is their Double Mushroom Chicken.
