What a great find after doing a Tripadvisor search - Although if you don't know where you are going it can be a bit tricky to get to!! But that’s where the grumbling stops! The restaurant is brilliant, right next to the river it is very peaceful and has excellent views from every table. We were fortunate enough to be... More

Dropped in on Monday evening without a booking and were given a table on the river side - there was already a largish group in and a few other diners. Opted for the £24.95 set menu which was wonderful, nicely presented and so tasty. Service was good and waiting time between courses was perfectly acceptable. Would definitely visit again if... More

I never say no to supper at East. Or lunch. I don't think they do breakfasts, but if they start I'm up for it. This has to be the best Thai in town, it's sister pub Charters just can't cut a comparison. I walked in to MaiThai once to pick up a menu and was so horrified I fled, so... More

The service and the food was excellent, one of the nicest Thai restaurants I've been to and right above a fab pub too. Unusual setting being a barge.

We have visited previously when in Peterborough but on this occasion my husband & I and our friends were disappointed with the service and the length of time we waited for our meal was unacceptable. There appeared to be a couple of tables occupied by diners well known to the staff and they tended to receive preferential treatment. We will... More

I have eaten here before, on many occasions, and every time I have enjoyed what I have eaten. This was no exception. Really nice waiting staff, very friendly & always with a smile. Food was as good as it can be in my opinion, served piping hot and tasting wonderful. The three of us ate everything, plates were all empty... More

The Thai food here is great although I prefer to eat downstairs in the bar or in the beer garden. The beer garden is the best in Peterborough and the ales Oakham and guest ales are always good with very friendly bar staff in charters bar.

This week I visited East with a large group of people from work. Our manager had arranged for us to have the taster menu which is not something I have had at East before despite visiting numerous times. Every dish was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection, the serving plates were nice and warm so the food did not go... More

Four of us had a great meal recently. Excellent service, great food, menu selection extensive. Good value - might be slightly above average price per head but worth it. Highly recommended.
