Always one of the top dim sum restaurants in the East Bay. Huge eating area with tables designed to accommodate large parties. The dim sum carts are always plentiful and strolling the lanes around the tables. The cart ladies are efficient and friendly. All items always appear fresh on the plates and tantalizing. Very easy to over order as everything... More

I've never had the traditional dim sum experience, where they bring around the carts with your options. At first I was a little overwhelmed, because I wasn't aware that's how they did it here, but once I figured it out I was able to get all the things I really like. I got to try a few new things all...

Too many choices all of them good. Loved the desserts of course and also the pot stickers. If you are not familiar with this. Fare you should go with someone who is.

We love visiting East Ocean Seafood in Alameda on weekends for dim sum. There is always a wait but because it's a big place, you get seated pretty quickly. The carts come around as soon as you're seated and delicious small bites come your way. This is a great place to visit with a group as you can try more... More

We ordered a veggie tempura to share. I had my usual chirashi and husband ordered a beef rib bento box. My attached photos show just how fresh and delicious our meal was. Shimizu never disappoints.😋😋

This place is huge, probably 100 tables. Great for large family dinners or parties. The service was excellent and the dishes we had were great - lemon chicken, BBQ fried rice, won ton soup. Very large portions - a serving of lemon chicken would easily serve 2-3 adults. We had so much we had to pack it up and take... More
