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...

This is our only choice for a Chinese take away now in Carlisle. Jenni and her team all do a great job, fresh tasty food and always hot. Value for money too. They also do Gluten free to order for folk like me.

Ordered takeaway to eat with friend recovering from operation on the strength of previous reviews here. It arrived promptly but the food was disappointing. Special fried rice was lacking in meat. The crispy chicken with spring onions and ginger was soggy slimy and bland, no crispness at all! The fish cakes reminded me of tough spam. Not worth the money... More

So after hearing lots of rave reviews about this place, we decided to give it a go. We went for a takeaway, service was very good, looked like a nice place inside as well. Got home and opened up our food, and it was nice, but I wouldn't say its the best in Carlisle. Quite small portions compared to over... More
