Family Run Friendly Restaurant

Informal atmosphere with welcoming atmosphere.Freshly cooked food served promptly with a smile.Well worth a visit in my opinion and open Sunday evenings and some other times when many are closed.

Lovely local Chinese, which we visit more than we should really! We don't tend to use the restaurant as we're local, however we can highly recommend the food, service is good and staff always friendly.

Visited on a quiet Tuesday evening, but unlike all other restaurants, the East Garden had customers. Immediately the front of house lady and her two charming kids set about making sure we were welcome. Kids serving!! Normally, I'm not keen, but they were really good and in this case added something. The best bit was the food which was the... More
