“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I don't know what Stephaniejon is on about - this isn't a Thai restaurant, it says Cantonese with a twist of Japanese! (Which it is!!) I and my various family members have visited this restaurant for years and never had a substandard meal or service. Their lunchtime specials are also great value, and Christmas menu was extensive and very reasonable (I will be going again shortly).
As regards children's half portions - I know if very few restaurants who would offer this, certainly not at half price as where the few do offer child's portions, they are invariably about 2/3 portions. My parents owned a restaurant for about 30 years - they did offer a very limited children's menu, and I can remember adults trying it on saying they weren't that hungry and asked for a meal off the children's menu! Not many children actually chose off that menu (when mine were young they would be more than happy with the adult's portion- they are now lean and fit adults).
As a local who has regularly visited this lovely restaurant, I can highly recommend.

“Shocking service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

On holiday with my husband and daughter we decided to try the Thai restaurant as we love the food.Was greeted by a member of staff who wasn't very happy.restaurant was empty at 530 and we ordered our drinks and food after ordering the waitress told us they would not cater for children and def would not give us a half portion.i found this incredible after ordering 70pounds worth of food so we decided to leave.i would never ever go back here and I would urge everyone else to do the same.i was made to feel very uncomfortable for asking for half a portion and am in shock they would treat a family like this!

“Nice Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

This was the best Asian restaurant we visited whilst on a recent holiday.
The food was well presented and excellent quality (unlike other restaurants visited that appeared to go for quantity and not quality).

“EAST MEATS WEST”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Every time we visit LLandudno we make sure that we go to the EAST Eatery for a nice meal.
We are never disappointed as it is a classy joint.
I recommend the Duck in whatever sauce you like,this coupled withe the rice & noodles is a real treat.
Prices are reasonable & the service is top notch.
A chilled atmosphere abounds so make sure you visit East on your next visit.

“Good Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Had a good meal overall but two issues stopped it being excellent. The starter on the samosas were cold and one was frozen! I guess this can happen and it was replaced with no problem. The lager was not chilled to the correct temperature and this resulted in the restaurant losing sales as we would have drunk more if it had been chilled correctly. However the rest of the meal was tasty and very good.
