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.

Quirky decor, great food, shame about the service

East Restauarant is one of my favourites in Hamburg. The room itself is great with the great columns making it feel cave like in a good way. The food is very good, though pricey.

Their sushi specials are too die for. They just need to work with their staff. Too many of them are just too cool for school.

This is a good place for going out with friends, but it's not a romantic place, more like a mix between a lounge, bar, disco and restaurant. And there is very big differences on the loudness level, depending on where you are seated. So if this is important for you, remember to ask. We had sushi - good but not... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at EAST hotel and had the sushi a la chef menu as a part of a package ordered via TravelCircus. We expected a really high level of sushi based on the great reviews here on Tripadvisor. But the sushi was not fantastic at all, it was just completely boring and not worth it at all.... More

Let first start by saying that my experience that evening was not one of the best. But this was more because I was not feeling well and very tired after a flight from Singapore (there are no direct flights). Thus I viewed dinner with a jaundiced eye being something I was obligated to do for business. The place surprised me... More

The decor is very interesting - lots of exposed brick - and, although the restaurant is large, the design means that there are lots of separate areas giving the impression of almost individual dining areas. The food was lovely - beautifully cooked and well presented.

This place very special. The transformation of an old factory into a fantastic interior makes this place worth a visit our, even just to see it. Good service at the table, and friendly staff. The food was good but not extraordinary. A good variety on the menu. I would visit East again for sure.
