Located close to our home we decided to give this a 2nd chance for a Friday night relaxing take-out dinner. Our first experience was less than stellar. We had a menu from our last visit (about 6-months ago) and while the prices seemed a bit steep - around $15.00 per entree we were taken aback to find that there had... More

Vast menu. Everything we ordered was great,.. sushi to tempura. Only slight complaint. We were told the tempura takes a long time. We thought it would have been better to time the other dinners to match the arrival of the tempura. A great time was had by all though.

We have eaten here many times, but this time the Chinese dishes were awful. The chicken had a strange texture. However, the egg rolls and soups, wonton and seafood were grest.

Within the last 3 weeks we have ordered here 3 times. The last time we ate or ordered food here was month maybe even a year, year and half ago. The reason we stopped coming here was the quality of the food and service had gotten so bad!! The reason we went back this time, it's close to us and...... More

We had the red curry lunch special. I liked that you could choose brown rice rather than just get the standard white rice. The curry needed to be more juicey. There just wasn't enough liquid. The mini egg roll that came with it really didn't have anything in it and therefore wasn't very good. My tofu wasn't very flavorful either.... More

Needed to find a place to eat and found this place called Cafe East. For appetizer, I had the Shrimp Tempura. It came out fried perfectly. The shrimp wee accompanied with vegetables. My entree was the Thai Stir Fried Jumbo Shrimp. It was delicious with a sweet and spicy sauce. The portion was a nice size. Enjoyed my meal.

Our regular place to end a long work week on Friday nights. It's a BYOB with a nice menu - great sushi, Thai and everything can be made light fare if you want. No rush and you can relax and unwind.

I came here with some family back in January and we really loved our food! I had the Thai basil chicken and my fiancee had the pad Thai. The rest of my family had assorted dishes and we all really loved our food, which was cooked perfectly. I'd definitely come back here if I'm in the area again!

It is difficult to define their Asian specialty as they perform almost all versions - Chinese, Japanese, Sushi and Thai to a very high standard. Eat-in or Take-out the standard is always well above Asian par. Unlike most combo eat-in/take-out you get dishes that emphasize the main ingredient and not a loaded dish of broccoli with a smattering of main-meat.... More

We order lunch out for each persons birthday in the office. Since it was Chinese New Year, we decided to get Asian food. It was good food and ready when we arrived, but nothing was marked. Since we ordered for 9 people, we were kind of hoping that it would be marked somehow...However, once the food was distributed, it was... More
