My husband and I have been going to East is East for years and we have NEVER been disappointed by the excellent quality of the food and the friendly and efficient service. Over the years, we have sampled most of the items on the menu and each time we have been thoroughly satisfied by the rich flavours and wonderful combination... More

If you had asked me, I would have said (with certainty) "I don't like Indian food!" Imagine my dismay when I was told we were eating dinner at East is East when I was carpooling into Vancouver with friends to see a concert. I just put my company manners face on while I smiled and nodded, saying that would be... More

Someone took me here a few years ago, much to my dismay.. I wasn't adventurous with food so I was preparing myself for a meal consisting of plain salad; I was so pleasantly surprised by East is East! The food is amazing, the atmosphere is something that brings me back time and time again and the service is very fast,... More

The smoothies and chai here is really good all by themselves. Delish. The roti wraps are pretty good. The taste menu for $21 is worthwhile if you can eat as you can try all the 12 or so listed dishes in tapa quantity and its plenty of food. This way you can figure out what you like best. The minced... More

My friend and I each ordered the "feast" basically you get a lovely platter of rice, roti, salad, dahl and many other items as well as starting with 2 of the entrees. From there you get to keep ordering until you can't eat another bite. We lounged on piles of cushions, ate absolutely delicious food and watched the action of... More

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The atmosphere down to the uncomfortable wooden chairs really transport you to another world. At first I wondered what I was doing ordering the chai feast, but it was the best decision I made. There were so many options and you can continue to eat until you're sick. No limit on... More

They have great vegeterian/ meat options, eveything is delicious. The atmosphere is great and staffs are friendly and can guide you through the menu. Don't forget to try their ice cream dessert, it;s kinda hot n cold and that's make it really unique and tasty.

In one word: spectacular! Very tasty food and perfect both for vegan or not. They have a kind of "all you can eat" (called feast) and you can try all of their main courses! Service is very gentle and the price is affordable. Great place

East is East is amazing. We felt transported to a different country when we entered the Chai Lounge. I love to go out to restaurants for more than just the food, I want an experience, and East is East provided just that...but the food is delicious, too! They had me at the warm Chai tea upon entering. When we arrived,... More
