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

Not bad food, just not great. Bland. Kung Pao wasn't great. Chicken Ma La wasn't great, either. Even the fortune cookies were...well, nothing good. Won ton soup was fine, bland and different from any other won ton we ever had. It had beef and chicken pieces in the soup, carrots, napa, and mushrooms. Been too many Chinese restaurants and this...

Never knew this place existed until I saw it here. Only a few miles from my house. The exterior is so completely unremarkable, it's not surprising that it never caught my eye. Inside isn't much more appealing. Everything is in a shade of beige. Might be the least decorated Asian restaurant I've ever visited. That said, the food was AWESOME.... More

We have been customers for 25 years. East Cafe is always busy, so you aren't getting food that has been sitting around! Plus we've talked w the owner about why the taste is so different from all the others restaurants...East Cafe uses FRESH vegetables! They also treat their employees well, they have waitstaff that has been there for twelve plus... More

We lived in Aurora, Colorado for many years and are familiar with many of the restaurants in the area. We come back for visits periodically, and on our latest visit a good friend of ours took us out for lunch at this restaurant. It was excellent! I can't believe that we hadn't heard of this place before, and my friend... More

Quick service, inexpensive eats, good chinese food for everyone on a budget or not. My parents eat here often and are treated like family on every visit. For a quick, inexpensive but yummy lunch, check them out!

We have started becoming regulars to East Café upon the recommendation of friends and family. The lunch is by far the best value, with great combinations and prices. Dinner is a little expensive but you can do family meals that include cheese wontons and eggrolls. My favorite is the stir-fry 3 kinds and Kung Pao Chicken.

Management was rude to handicapped; had us moved when it was not necessary. Food quality is only fair. Price is fair. Been customers for many years. Could there be new managemen? It's time to look for a new option.

Great lunch specials for around 7 bucks! Every special comes with a drink, egg roll, soup or salad plus your entree! Try the hurricane beef!

This is an old standby for my family when in the mood for Chineese food. The food is authentic cooked and served by Chineese people.
