Simply the best!

East West Grill has been, simply put, the best Thai food enjoyed by my wife and I in Connecticut, indeed anywhere, for several years now. Set in a retro yet homey looking diner on a non description street in West Hartford, this place, with its plush red padded booths and classic diner counter and... read more

East West Grill is the most average Thai restaurant I have ever been. I was disappointed with the service and food first time around and decided to give it one more try before writing a review. The second experience was better service wise but food was still pretty average. The best Thai I ever had was in CT was at... More

I was doing my weekend drill nearby and was introduced to this wonderful "diamond in the ruff" by a fellow soldier for lunch. The menu and prices are really great! The service is also great. Lucia, our waitress is very friendly and polite as is everyone else there. I keep going back for the food. And I think also for... More

I had the thai curry and it was delicious. The staff is friendly and the prices very reasonable. There are parking spots at the location.

Dropped in with the family for a late dinner on a Thursday night on route to Boston. The service was great and accomodated our requests for nut-free dishes. The Pho's for the kids were awesome. My drunken noodles were simply delicious. Would love to stop by here again sometime...

While only serving breakfast on weekends, lunch and dinner at times, this cozy diner with limited parking is a taste delight. Portions are large and well presented. While the young staff is plentiful, they are often forgetful that you are there.The menu is a refreshing treat for the venturesome and well worth exploring. This place has the best "new" breakfast...

The food is very well spiced, watch out for the spicy items, sometimes it's a heavy hand. Their pho is amazing as well as the green curry.

We came upon this place by accident and then realized that we discovered a truly coveted restaurant with many regulars. This is a gem hidden in a what appears to be a former diner. We ordered their special "lunch trays" that come with soup, salad and the main meal for a very reasonable price. Everything was delicious. The salad was... More

We enjoyed one last time to eat outside. (October night) The inside was packed. We tried a few dishes. Hot and Sour soup. various Thai dishes. I love the fact that most of the dishes could be ordered with beef, chicken or tofu added. As a vegetarian, I had alot of choices. Service was attentive and all questions about the... More
