“Far East never changes.... always GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

I have been eating at Far East since my college days in the early 80's at MTSU. The same family owns the restaurant, and the food remains delicious.... whether you are a coed nursing a teeny hangover, or a family with kids in tow, the food is awesome.

My favorite is the General's chicken, egg rolls and the fried rice. My kids love the noodles, egg rolls, and beef and broccoli. We are all ADDICTED to the roast pork, however.

Love your tummy. Take it to Far East!

“Really Unique Asian Experiance.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2010

As a huge fan of Thai and Chinese foods, I wouldn't call this place either. Its really well made family recopies for Thai/Lao/Chinese dishes. Must haves: Hot and Sour Soup, Egg Rolls (my favorite in town), Noodles (Ive never tasted anything like these anywhere else), General Tao's Chicken (yes, I know this is pretty generic Asian food, but they really do it justice here.) and finally, something that's kinda hidden on the menu, the Shrimp Toast. The toast is rich and filling and rivals the best I've had in other more authentic places.

“best noodles ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2007

Far East has THE best noodles ever! They are kinda sweet. The sweet and sour chicken, pepper steak, and lemon chicken are all very good, also. The family that runs it is very nice. This is where the locals go. Always full of lawyers, businessmen, policemen, and politicians.
