Tasty Cantonese

It's rare to find a true Cantonese restaurant in Denver, and this one is quite good. It is a little dive in a shopette, but once you sit down, you feel very comfortable. The service is very good. They immediately bring a pot of tea, unheard of any more in an Asian restaurant, unless you come up... read more

Stopped here with my dad for dinner on our way to pick up family from DIA. We were seated right away and brought water and hot tea. The prices were excellent, especially for the area. We ordered Singapore Noodles and the asparagus & chicken, both delicious. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Our food arrived quickly. Overall it was... More

Great food, fast service, nice staff. Lunch is great, too with a nice selection. We've been multiple times and it never disappoints. My husband always orders the Happy Family and me the Chicken Salad!

So disappointed on recent trip to east cafe. Frequent customer-mostly take out-15 years. Children in Dining room were unruly, loud, running, etc. Three attempts were made by members of our party to resolve situation, with not a single idea or suggestion to resolve noise, or our concern-- Customer Service Failure

Good food consistently. Been eating here for 10 years. The Combo Hurricane is my favorite, but may be too spicy for some.

My family and church friends have been going here for at least 18 years. The service is good and the food is some of the best chinese I have ever had. I travel weekly and try other places and I am never happy. East Cafe has spoiled me.

I love the food here but will have to give this place a1 star after all these years due to the rude Mexican bus person. I do not need someone to not look at us or slam drinks down on the table. When boxing up leftover food, she does not need to get it all over the table and leave... More

If you're looking for good consistant Chinese food in the Denver/Aurora area, try the East Cafe in Aurora. Everything is served freshly prepared always hot and prompt. The service is very good and friendly. You can get all dishes with either steamed or fried rice. If you order the family style dinner you won't believe the size of the soup... More
