I happen to love Chinese chicken salad and have indulged this passion in many restaurants, most of them designated as "Chinese." The chicken salad in this place is far and away the best I have ever had. Reasonably priced and available in three different sizes. On the face of it, it's pretty much like others -- chicken, greens, scallion, noodles, sliced nuts, sometimes orange slices, sprouts. Plus the dressing, and I think this is where Feast from the East is superior to the rest. And happily they have begun to sell this ambrosia by the bottle. Naturally I had to buy one when I ate there a couple of weeks ago, and voila, I can *kind of replicate* the culinary delight at home. Well, not replicate but better than not having any of this flavor at all till the next time I go there.
Some time ago they expanded so that they have tables. One orders at the counter and someone brings you your dish a few minutes later. It works very well and makes it more than the strictly take-out place that it used to be. Highly recommended.

Just about 2 miles south of the UCLA campus on Westwood Boulevard, this place has a short but sweet menu. No, not sweet as in desert. Really great. They are said to have invented the style of Chinese chicken salad they are known for. I know folks who have driven many miles just to order it, either to be eaten in the small but cozy restaurant or to take home to the family. The dressing for this famous salad is available at local as well.

There are some other items on the menu such as barbecue pork bao( a dim sum dumpling) Fried chicken wings and drumsticks, gyoza chicken soup and more.

I can't properly evaluate these things because no matter what I plan to order it ends up always being the famous Chinese chicken salad.

Hats off to Suzanne the chef, founder, and owner who has kept this marvelous place going for over 25 years. Can't wait to return for another salad.

Feast from the East has healthy delicious Chinese Chicken Salads that always have fresh greens, shredded chicken, and the best dressing that is their own house brand. Caring, kind staff and a superb value. Whether eat in or take out -- consistently wonderful for more than a decade! Enjoyed BBQ pork buns and chicken potstickers as appetizers. Thank you!

Been going here for decades whether eating in, take out or even business lunches. No matter when, always a delicious meal. The chicken salad of course, stir fried dishes and sesame pieces. Everyone I've sent agrees and gets hooked too!

The wings and salad are my go to food for this restaurant during the past 30+ years. Great salad dressing that I spruce up with some hot mustard and sweet chili. Way to go.

Thanks for the kind comments about FFTE! Nowadays it's really hard for a small family-owned restaurant to standout from the rest of the crowd so we REALLY appreciate public comments from our long-time regulars. We hope to see you soon and often! VBest, FFTE Family.
