On an old Dutch barge. Incredibly amazing food. Next time I visit Peterborough it will be my first port of call to eat.

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

Dear Bpm1976, Thank you so much for taking your time to write the review. I am both surprised and shocked to hear your opinion of East's standard of hygiene. East is a sister company to The Brewery Tap, and is operated according to the same guidelines. Moreover, our venue is subjected to regular audit by the authority. I would be... More

This was my first visit to Peterborough but I had heard of this restaurant so decided to give it a go. So glad!! Amazing food in a very interesting setting aboard an old cargo barge. The service was efficient and friendly. After enjoying a fantastic meal we then went down to the lower deck (cargo hold) which is a delightful... More

We are regulars at East so thought it best to write a review. They have an extensive oriental menu with dishes from Vietnam and Thailand. No Indian choices as such although there are oriental curries and the like to choose from as well as a few set menus. The food is always delicious and plentiful and well priced. Recommendations include... More

Excellent Oriental meal in a very different setting, being on the top deck of an old barge moored in Central Peterborough. We were there on a Sunday evening, so it was quiet. The food was good, as was the service. We were given some prawn crackers to nibble whilst we made our choices, which were different from those you normally... More

This meal was the best I have ever had in any asian restaurant in England. The menu was extensive and I was spoilt for choice. I noted the waitress was patient and explained many of the dishes to me. Normally I eat little , but this time I managed three courses plus wine and coffee and enjoyed every mouthful. The... More

I've visited Charters many times but had never eaten in East before - and now I don't know why I waited so long, it was excellent. The setting is as pleasant as a boat on the river close to Peterborough city centre on a dark evening can be. The decor is simple, modern and clean. The menu was extensive covering... More
