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

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.
