“Posh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Popular place because of it`s location. Large indoor area, very bad toilets. They are trying to take fee for hanging jackets during lunchtime even. Wide sortiment of sushi and Asian food. They all taste good. Although it`s pricey I can recommend their "julbord" if you want to have some different style of Christmas buffe.

“Not like it use to be.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I've eaten at East a number of times over the past 15 years and have always enjoyed it till now. I went for the sushi, unfortunately it's gone way way uptown. A bit to precious for me with prices to match. For me the food wasn't up to the prices being charged. Too bad. What bothered me even more was the service. After being seated, I waited way to long until someone came to my table and it wasn't that crowded. Another thing that's changed at East is the atmosphere, it's gotten snooty. No my cup of tea.

“Mediocre and expensive sushi with good sauces.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Having tried all the best sushi places in Stockholm I must say though that East (located near Stureplan) is the most over appreciated of them all, because of the location. You can have a lot better fushion-sushi in Stockholm for a fraction of the sum you pay when visiting East. I do though like the sauces they serve with the sushi.

I would also like to mention that this is a tourist trap with service personel who can be rude for small things, like splitting the check or asking for tap water to the food.
