Out looking for a restaurant around 8pm on a rainy Sunday evening, we found the East & West Cafe hopping! We could not have found a more perfect place for our dinner. It is obviously a family owned restaurant which shows in the quality of food and service. Our waiter was cheery and the atmosphere was homey and comfortable. The... More

Some of you may remember the origins of East West Café on Tacoma Mall Blvd - the little house that was always fully packed with people and a line of customers picking up their take-out orders. Then came the beautiful new building! And then changes happened with relocations. We dined last night at the Proctor restaurant - a fond journey... More

Food was very tasty. Not much into this type of food but would go back again. The service was very good and attentive. No bar but do serve wine and that was very good as well.

Opened originally as a smaller branch of the East-West cafe established decades ago in the Tacoma Mall District, they pioneered the fusion of Asian dishes prepared for western tastes in this area. The original more upscale location is gone, but this location remains in the casual Proctor shopping district. While the menu includes dishes with Chinese and Korean roots, the... More

Never a bad meal. Pleasant ambiance and attentive wait staff. Soft classical music that did not interfere with conversation (a rarity these days!). Not the first time or the last that I will eat here. Fair prices too.

Two of us went for lunch on a work day. We got there early, in order to beat any possible lunch rush since it is a small place. We had to wait to be seated, even though no one was ahead of us and there were tables. It took forever to get water, to have or order taken. I had... More

Took my daughters here for lunch and everyone enjoyed it; especially the vegetarian. Located in a well maintained section of town near UPS. The restaurant does not seat very many people, so on busy days you might have too wait a minute. Very cozy and nicely decorated dining area. Staff was pleasant and attentive. All food dishes were well plated,... More
