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

We love the buffet, because you could choose what you wanted and was plenty of everything and all the food was fresh

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

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon after a morning of baseball. Seated promptly and had the buffet. Good selection and for the most part everything was nice and hot, there were a couple if items that weren't. Would return for another visit.

We enjoyed our visit. Service was good, as was the food. We had a Pupu for one and Pad Thai. It was very good and we had a happy hour discount for our drinks.

Love it, love it, love it. We stumbled upon the grand East Restaurant this past Sunday and what a treat. Fantastic Asian cuisine. The buffet literally had everything you can think of on it and super hot and delicious. Sat quickly and servers were great as well. Little sushi, soup and peel and eat shrimp to start and on to...

Sunday dinner visit; server was great, but food 'not so much' . Spring rolls were hot at one end and cold at other. Obviously precooked, refrigerated but not adequately reheated. Main courses looked good and portions were large, but taste was unfortunately rather bland. Price was OK and in expected range. Ambiance was OK. Parking easy. Staff friendly.
