I've eaten from here twice now, the first time being a year or so ago - it was 'okay' then, but due to other places being closed we decided to try again recently. Instantly regretted it. The food was not nice... Chicken balls were almost burnt, noodles dry and bland. Staff didn't seem to care about customer service and were... More

Hadn't been to eastern in a long time as I normally order from yummies, but as it was shut decided to give this one a go again! Very dissapointed with the food, chips taste like microwave chips and come in a sweaty plastic box, noodles are plain with no flavor and the chicken dish had no flavor either! Prawn crackers...

We eat in this Chinese every time we are in town, and without fail, food is always delicious and service is fantastic. The menu has a good variety on it and all at very reasonable prices. Always recommended to friends and family. Look forward to our next visit!

This Chinese restaurant is the most switched on I have ever encountered. The menu is great, but for speed and variety, the 'Hot Box' is the best buffet style meal around. My husband and I always pop in when we are shopping in Carlisle. The staff are friendly and efficient and the buffet is well maintained. There is a different... More

Carlisle does not seem to be well endowed with good quality Chinese takeaways. This is an exception - we had a houseful of guests and decided to try Eastern on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed - all the selections made were freshly prepared with good flavour and plenty of meat (not padded out with cheap vegetables).... More

Best Chinese in town. My favourites are the thai green chicken curry, shredded chicken in garlic sauce and the king prawns with walnuts! Great bang for your buck, plenty meat or seafood in your dishes! Yes there's always a long wait to order takeaway but hey it's worth it! I recommend the wonton tom yum soup for people who don't...
