Our Favorite Asian Place, Very good selection

What do you do when one person wants Chinese, the other Thai, the third Sushi, and the fourth Tempura? Come to East Cuisine, of course.

I go here all the time. The menu is huge there is something you can find for any Asian inspired taste whether it's sushi, noodles, won ton soup etc. The sushi is incredible and it's also a BYO. Great hidden date spot-hope it doesn't get too popular after this!

What happened to this place??? I've been coming to East for about 5 years. Really solid good chinese food with flavor. White meat chicken. Garlicy sauces. Whole chile peppers in entrees. One of the best hot and sour soup recipes I've had in the city. Then a few months ago they changed chefs and now the food is utter tasteless... More

This is an all-around good Chinese restaurant. They also have Japanese food, but I always go for the Chinese. It has a nice atmosphere, good service and (most importantly) good food. I enjoy the pickled cabbage they serve to start. The wonton soup is good. Some of the entrees are large enough to share, or at least have some to... More

The soothing sounds of water and the lovely background music made for a calming lunch. I appreciated that with all lunch options one could choose white, brown or fried rice. I never had lemongrass chicken before, but I found it just the right amount of spice. There were a variety of vegetables included with this dish and they were very... More

This used to be our favorite Chinese & Japanese restaurant around. We have several other options closer to us but we thought the quality was well worth the extra drive! The past two times we've ordered out (we almost always do take out here) the food has been greasy, the fried rice is hard and dry and has a completely... More

We wanted to get Thai but the place we normally go to changed hands and converted to Vegetarian cuisine. We saw this place right around the corner and decided to try it. I had Chicken in Garlic Sauce, one of my friends had Sushi and the other one had a Thai dish. We are agreed we'd come back in the... More

It sure is nice not to have to schlep to Chinatown for some good Peking Duck at a reasonable price! Also love the veggie miso soup, moo shoo, Thai curry, and on and on. We've really never had a bad meal here. Service is always terrific, love that it's a BYO and convenient. Highly recommend.

East Cuisine has been our 'go to' Asian restaurant since they opened, both for eat-in (+BYOB) and take out. The menu has expanded over the years to include Thai and Japanese along with Chinese and the incredible sushi. There are always specials although the menu is so extensive it is hard to decide. On the most recent visit with some... More

I was looking for some sushi at a moderate price and followed up on a recommendation from some friends. East Cuisine has an extensive menu, including Chinese, Japanese and Thai foods. I ordered some of their custom rolls and was not disappointed. They have a great variety, tons of awards and Zagat ratings in their front lobby and the food... More
