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.

I just reviewed another local Chinese Restaurant, Double Dragon, and gave it high marks. I give East Villa the same high marks. The difference is that East Villa has a better ambience, slightly better food ... and is more expensive. This is a very nice restaurant with good food, good service and comfortable surroundings. They have a couple of unusual... More

... the place looks worn out, old, and grimy. Urgently needs a renovation. Service is good, but food is boring, overly Americanized pseudo Chinese. Plenty MSG in that kitchen.

Family of 5 for dinner. Tired surroundings, outdoor and indoor. Had several different servers during the course of the night, mostly with very little enthusiasm or engagement. Menu quite small for a Chinese, food was average at best. They didn't bring out the wine we ordered. Not cheap. Quite relieved to leave, wouldn't return.

I recently had lunch here and I wasn't impressed. I wanted to love this place as much as other reviewers, but the food just didn't have the flavor you would expect from a Chinese restaurant. We started with the pan fried pork dumplings and they were tasty, but too fried on one side and too chewy on the others. I... More
