Wonderful

This place never disappoints. Serves authentic Thai food and those that can't take the heat and spice they will cater the dish to your taste so you have a pleasant meal. Staff always professional. Always a real treat to come here.

I love this place, It is suitable for mixed generations of family. Food seems to be freshly cooked, great variety, attractively served, with very pleasant staff, my only complaint, It was very cold on the day after Boxing Day. They dont seem to be able to heat the place up, but they do have hot soup on offer. A place... More

East is a great place to eat in Peterborough and is now one of my favourite restaurants. I go there every time I visit Peterborough. The food is amazing with quick service and the waiting staff are friendly and discrete. You don't feel rushed between courses or hovered around for the entire night. It has a nice and relaxing atmosphere... More

After visiting this restaurant I suffered terrible sickness and diarrhoea. Having eaten only very plain food all weekend and after the foul smell from both ends I know it could only be the Singapore chicken curry. I contacted the owner. She basically called me liar, accused me of having drunk too much (I'm tee total) and without my permission tried... More

I am very disappointed to see that you have used a public platform to make an allegation to which we requested for evidence to substantiate it but received none. I hope you can appreciate that this is a serious allegation. As an establishment with excellent reputation, we take this type of claim very seriously. It has alway been our practice... More

A charming and warm atmosphere with a adequate selection of beer and a friendly staff. I was there on a pub crawl for beer only and did not try the food. seemed to attract peaceful locals and folks wanting a quiet place for quality time with friends. this was my favorite out of all the oubs in Peterborough.

Really good food, great service. Always cater for vegan options which shows the food is cooked fresh and to order. Answered the phone straight away to make the order and table was ready without any delay :) Would recommend - one of the nicest Asian restaurants in Peterborough.

We have always had a fine time at East it's not cheap but it is well above the others in Peterborough that are in its style and price range. Staff are always attentive but wary of putting you under pressure, though sometimes the atmosphere can be a little bit different, can't quite put my finger on it but its enough... More

Went here Saturday lunch time. We had the lunch time set menu, which is starter and main for £10.95. My husband had the salt and pepper chicken wings. Which he enjoyed but said they weren't very salt or pepper tasting. They were deep fried chicken wings. I had the beef strips with sweet chilli dipping sauce..The starter portion size was... More
