Sunday Lunch Buffet

Have not been here for a while and with some visiting friends decided to have a go at the buffet. It was all very nice and fresh food being brought out constantly. Not something that we would do on a regular basis but a really nice change to the norm.

My husband and I went to East as a mid week treat and ordered thai dishes. Although they were good I was puzzled at the size of the rice side dishes, a large tablespoonful is an understatement. We are by no means greedy but charging £2.45 for a tiny bowl of plain rice is ridiculous - I had to ask... More

We visited on a busy Sunday lunchtime. The restaurant was full and a buffet was in full swing; we wanted to chose our food so we opted for the menu. The food is nicely described and there's a good selection of all courses. I chose Tempura prawns to start and chilli-beef for main. Service was a bit slow and the... More

I have been here now a few times and had a wonderful valentines meal. The food is absolutely fantastic and quite unique. Charters below is a great starting point for a drink before dinner as well. The only downside is that it is not the cheapest place to eat but I have never felt what they serve is overpriced.

7 of us visited this restaurant after reading the good reviews. The food was very nice and plentiful although the curry dishes were spicier than the menu indicated. Service was good and the staff very pleasant. What didn't go down too well was that 3 of us found hairs in the food. As we had enjoyed the meal we didn't... More

I have never visited this restaurant before but went this afternoon having received an invite to my friend’s belated 65th birthday celebration. Our large party had the Sunday buffet lunch which consisted of a very good selection of delicious dishes. Plates were nice & hot which I think is always a plus. The clean modern interior is set on the... More

I took my dad to East to have the lunch buffet yesterday. As always, there was a good selection of starters and mains to choose from. There wasn't very many people in the restaurant and unfortunately the food was a little dry and cold. I have to say though that this was a one off as we have visited many... More

I came here with my boyfriend Saturday evening. The food was lovely and the staff very friendly. We were not rushed and the courses came out just the right time between. I would say a little bit pricey if choosing seperate courses like we did but the set menus seemed quite reasonable.

A converted Dutch barge on the River Nene close to the town centre with a real ale bar on the lower deck called Charters featuring Oakham Ales Asian restaurant called East on the upper deck with good food and excellent service at affordable prices. Strongly recommended.

Midweek lunch for two, £30 including drinks. Food was nice, presentation ie plates all marked and scratched. Dried lime and wilting salad and garnishes. Only ones in restaurant. Lovely waitress but over priced, poor delivery, dirty glasses (wine) Much improvement needed
