Description: In a former iron foundry near Hamburg’s notorious redlight district, east blends gastronomy, hospitality and nightlife around a three-storey high restaurant and courtyard terrace called “Dedon Island”. Four pillars tower divide the restaurant area. Here, at the east restaurant, creativity never ends. Ingenious creations, born of the traditional, european cuisine, some of them mild and spicy embedded in asian fragrances and condiments, let your soul swing. Hamburg’s new and exquisite meeting- and melting-point.

What a room!!! Impressive to look at and be in. For story ceilings, fascinating structural architecture, openness.... And that's just the restroom.... Well, maybe I exaggerate, still it is impressive. Big on Japanese food and those that enjoy that flavor said it was very good. As for me I liked their bread served with olive oil and sea salt on...

Amazing place and atmosphere, elegant and international. We ordered 2 tartars (1 meat (excellent) and 1 tuna (very good), a mixed uramaki sushi and a sashimi, the sushi was in general very good but in my opinion not great: the roll were too soft so decomposed often when we tried to take it with the sticks (not a crucial thing...

It's a great asian fusion restaurant downstairs and a fancy bar with great cocktails upstairs. The christmas party was just great. You need to make a reservation for the restaurant.

Great restaurant with cool interior, yet very cosy. Great fusion food and good value for money. The restaurant also has a cocktailbar, so the place has a cool hype but is still suitable for a romantik dinner.

We went for an early dinner, starting at 18.00 while the restaurant was far from full. When we left, the restaurant and bar was filling up, but it never felt crowded. Lots of corners and seperate areas to sit/stand so the atmosphere is preserved. The decor is modern with a twist of 18th century industrial theme, which works very well.... More

EAST had some of the best sushi I have ever tasted. Food and service are absolutely top notch - and the atmosphere is very 'New York Hip' (in a good way). If you visit Hamburg - you have to go there.
