I visited with some work colleagues for the first time and had a excellent meal. They have a very good selection of dishes on the menu but we ended choosing a set meal as it had something for everyone. From the starters through the main courses you could not fault it. The portion sizes were good and the food was... More

We visited here on 11/1/17. It's my first time here in many years. The restaurant is pleasant in a unique setting and the staff are polite. Our starters were nice (Tempura Prawns and Heavenly beef), for our main courses we had Pad Gra Praw with chicken which was about 70% gristle on both my wife and my dish. Very disappointing... More

All of the good reviews are true. The food is out of this world. The only downsides are the restaurant isn't very big so a lot of people are squeezed in and it is a little bit pricey, but worth the money for a treat

Delicious banquets for 2 each time we have dined. Select a window seat for great views of the river.

Christmas night out with mates. Tried to book online, system said full for days - phoned and was given a table for when we wanted! Usual East oriental food, great choice (if you like that sort of food, avoid if you don't!). Great friendly but professional service, including honest recommendations. Food very good, no waiting even when busy, great presentation

I'm not particularly fond of this restaurant but we visited with friends. On this occasion, a busy Saturday night, I have to say the food was flavoursome, freshly cooked and the dining service fine. My tempura prawns were lightly cooked and the batter was perfect. My chilli beef was flavoured just right. Everyone on the table had a similar experience... More

Visited on a Saturday night with friends and had the set menu c. The food was simply delicious - well cooked, fresh and beautifully presented. The plum sauce served with the crispy aromatic duck was the best I've tasted. Portions were on the small side but we were full after we had eaten the dessert as well. Prices are quite... More

I have to say that I have never been let down by this place. Their service has been brilliant, warm and welcoming and nothing being to much. They cook the food to your liking if requested and advise on every dish. The food has been perfect each time, always consistently great and always the same. If you want to try... More

We ate at East last month for my brother's birthday and, as usual, the quality of the food serves was superb. From the complimemtary prawn crackers, to the pork belly, everything tasted great. Compared to chinese takeaways, the food here tastes fresh and of good quality - you can really taste the difference in the meat and veg. Its all... More
