Basic and poor service

The buffet is net, well maintained and quite acceptable but ... "quantity rather than quality". Poor level of service, lack of attention to client. Waiters are young and need more training.

East has the best Chinese food you will ever have. Absolutely top notch! They have sushi too, although I don't eat that.

Great place for dinner! Excellent service! Nice variety of Chinese, Japenese and Thai menu. Everything was delicious! This place was recommended by our B&B hostess.

My husband and I ate here this past weekend. The food is actually quite good however the experience could be improved. We waited for our table in the lobby and I found the lovely ambiance of the restaurant to be off-set by huge banners proclaiming the restaurant to be one of the best in the country (as of 6 years...

We were craving Chinese specifically so we stopped in to this restaurant for dinner. It was a Thursday evening, and there were plenty of people there, but we didn't have to wait for a table. This restaurant is HUGE! I ordered sesame chicken with pork fried rice and crab rangoons. It was wonderful. I like the option of pork fried... More

We sat at the bar and ordered pork fried rice and a pu pu platter. Nothing was terrible but nothing was good. We probably won't return. This is a popular place with the locals- don't know why.

I'm not a big Chinese food lover so for me to say, not bad, is a good thing because generally I can only eat the rice and maybe a chicken finger. For around here, this was good Chinese in my opinion and when forced to go again, here it will probably be.

Popped in for dinner. A good selection of differing asian styles but nothing to write home about. The S and S pork dish was not what we expected, even after going through a discussion about it before ordering. I had a noodle dish which was plentiful but on the bland side. Wait staff seemed to be more interested in what... More
