After regularly having a great experience at East we decided to try lunch. Well, there wasn't any. Just the same menu as the evening. There is a lunch deal advertised at the top of the stairway but no mention of it anywhere else. The menus need replacing because mine was greasy and... read more

Went here with friends and family for their sunday buffet. Excellent food as always [been a fair few times] and really enjoyed it. Service was good and not too intrusive [none of that~ 'are you enjoying your meal?' tosh]. A suggestion however, maybe change up the food selection. Returning customers won't see much in the way of variety. Or just... More

Have eaten here four times in the last year, have a table booked again for this saturday for my father-in-laws birthday and again the following week for mine! Love this place and the maître d' is often referred by us as 'the nicest guy' because of how welcoming and dry his humour is. He also chased after us (when we... More

We've been eating here for years now but not often. We go to East to celebrate speacial family anniversaries. The food is lovely and our son loves that it is actually a boat and can see the swans swimming past. The waiter always seems to remember us and is helpful in guiding us with our food choices.

What is great about East is the Food - a real mix of different and complimentary asian food well cooked hot and excellent taste. We booked for a Sunday evening in June, it was very quiet we arrived at around 6.30pm and we were the last to leave a couple of hours later. The boat is looking a little tired... More
