Very unimpressive and sort of a bait and switch going on here. The building and decorations scream "Authentic Asian Cuisine" but the food screams "Made in a factory & frozen". My wife and I are accustomed to some great Asian food at home, so this place was a huge let down. The buffet is a waste of time, and the... More

This sells typical Asain food. If you want to go fill up on a buffet, go there on Sunday and eat your heart out. Prices are average. They are usuallly busy and have a good bar crowd. I have never ordered take out but I suspect it is just average as well. Unfortunately, it is the best asian we have... More

The food is greasy and take out is always cold. One of the times we ordered take out they gave us teriake chicken instead of crab rangoon that we ordered.... More

Having had a bad experience at East 2 years ago, we decided to give it another try and were glad we did. We had dinner on Friday night, the day after Christmas and the place was filled with large parties, obviously families who were celebrating an extended holiday. We did not have a reservation but were seated quickly. The restaurant... More

The food is delicious and the service is wonderful The atmosphere with drapes and white table clothes is very upscale. This year they were having a buffet over Columbus Day Weekend for $16. What a treat. We were able... More

The atmosphere was lovely, the waiter absolutely superb....those are the best things I can say about this meal. Tempura veggies mushy & batter soggy -- inedible. Tasty enough shrimp dish, was drowned in sauce that looked and tasted like a dessert tapioca. We were in the mood for oriental food....but left nauseous and may not crave it again for a... More

After being a local for the last 10 years and enjoying my Happy Hour, I have come to the conclusion that The East restaurant is now off the list. My Mom, husband, and myself seem to get the cold shoulder and horrible, horrible service. I always tip accordingly and always am polite. just not sure what Mike's deal is. Does... More
