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.

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

This is usually my top place for eating out & I have rated it so in the past and been many times. However we went here for Mothers Day. We had the buffet & although it was better than other oriental buffets it wasn't up to their usual standard I didn't think. But also we had my 2 year old... More
