We found this restaurant by chance as we made a short stop in Swaffam on a rainy day. We had started out looking for a fish and chips shop, but as it was a little cold and wet, thought that a bowl of hot and sour soup would be nicely warming! We were delighted to find this little restaurant. The... More

Don't usually eat chinese food, (unless in china town) but every other place was full, so we had to eat here, service was okay, food actually was quite good, except for the green thai curry (never seen pineapple in Thai food before) which was little odd, but over all much as we expected, doubt we would go back, but as...

Where to start? Well starters - smoked shredded chicken aka chicken coated in sugar, drenched in syrup and fried with a few random chillies. We then waited over an hour for our main course which arrived cold, we told the waitress but we're ignored. I asked for a plate so that I could at least start my food, she then... More

There isn't a lot open in Swaffham on a Sunday night so after a long drive we were looking for a bite to eat just to save us the task of cooking when we got home. Luckily for us we came across the East Garden and were treated to a marvellous meal, well prepared and brought to our table in... More

Me & my husband went early evening on a Sunday- so we didn't expect it to be busy & buzzing. There were just us & 1family. The menu is extensive - with nice selections of 'fixed' meals for 2 (or more). The food was good, I asked for no MSG and they obliged no problem. We always think places that... More

I was really looking forward to my Chinese but was so dissapointed with the outcome. Arrived and was shunted into a horrible,dismal pink room. Starter, chicken and sweetcorn soup, a good start plenty of ingredients, not very tasty though. Next, Chefs Special King Prawns on toast, Foo King Horrible, tasted like they were cooked in dirty old oil. Main meal... More

Jenny and her husband are lovely and friendly. The food is tasty and well presented, but the portions are far too small for the price they charge - particularly the rice. You can buy rice @ 40p per kilo so don't rip people off with expensive rice and small portions. I spend quite a bit of time in London and... More
