Neighborhood Gem!

Was told about East Villa Restaurant by the owners of the cottage we were staying at (walking distance), and were happy with the results. You can tell a lot of locals go to this restaurant and you can see why...portions and taste! Upon walking in the door, we were greeted with a warm smile and... read more

This is a regular spot for my local friend and her family for Sunday lunch after church and I was lucky enough to tag along. More frequently I find myself in takeout focused Chinese restaurants so it was a bit of a treat to be in a more traditional place. We all started our meal with a snack of the... More

This Chinese restaurant located on East Bay St. in Nassau has become an annual favorite for our group when we visit The Bahamas each February. They offer a wonderfully diverse menu that includes "American" cuisine. Their Chinese offerings are fresh, extremely delicious, good portions, and reasonable pricing. Peking duck, lemon chicken, chicken and broccoli, all of the sweet and sours... More

Don't be deterred by location. We were skeptical...party of 11 (4 parents and 9 teens). Tired of local fare on a weeks visit? Our party agreed this was one of the best meals on the island. The food was hot, fresh, delicious and shared family style. Order take out for a beach picnic or dinner on your balcony. We will... More

When in Nassau if you have to have authentic, tasty, well presented scrumptious Chinese food, Villa East is the place to go. Everything from Seafood, Chicken, Pork, Steak and more you will not be disappointed! Smiling faces, reasonable prices and great location not far for the Center of Nassau!

I had not been for a long time and was worried when not asked on arrival if I had booked. On previous visits the place has always been full and this time it was quiet, I should have left then. We ordered the Peking duck to start and a bottle of wine. Our wine waiter came to say our bottle... More

We have been here several times. The tenderloin and rack of lamb are both fantastic. The house wonton soup is delicious. Nice portions. It would be nice if the owner would clean up the approach to the restaurant. Specifically the dumpster and landscaping.

I don't know why this place is rated lower than Sbarro and Dunkin Donuts (!!???). For the price, the food was great. East Villa was recommended by locals who eat there all the time, they said the non-Chinese food was also very good. We shared a number of dishes and had some reasonably priced wine. The price was fair and... More

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Nassau. It is screaming for a little TLC. The service & quality of food have also declined. The menu has not been changed in twenty years. This walk down memory lane was truly a dissapointment.
