We have been to East Villa Restaurant every year in the last 5 years. At our last visit the service was incredible poor, trainees tried to do the service but even under the supervision of a elderly waiter they were very slow and had no clue about the served food. At the time we left the owner did not have... More

We've eaten at this restaurant many times. Each time we bring someone new and they always enjoy the meal. Please try it, I'm sure you will like it.

Food and service okay. But the interior desperately needs updating and is unchanged for at least twenty years. Had some ants walking across table which makes you wonder how many are on the floor under the table. Generally, everything was okay.

Hands down most well trained, attentive and quick service in the Bahamas. Food and beverage are above expectations at a surprisingly decent price. I'm a chef on a boat and put too much effort into dragging the rest of our crew, mainly the captain and mate out to eat on our days off. I managed to get them into east... More

The chef knows how to prepare authentic tasting Cantonese cuisine. We specially ordered the grouper done 3 ways and it was very delicious. No sweet and sour chicken balls on the menu, thank goodness. Good service in a large, somewhat subdued room. For Chinese food, definitely dine here.

Great atmosphere, valet parking a plus and the food is both Asian and local. I miss the live music; but even without it the place still delivers on a first rate dining experience and reasonable prices.

Visitors to the island better gas up your rental cars or hail the nearest taxi because this little restaurant is nestled on the very edge of the town, just as the commercial buildings start to give way to the residential ones. The restaurant itself has a very entrancing appeal to it. The outside is painted in traditional Chinese yellow with... More

I have been eating at East Villa for over 15 years.. that's a long time. My family would usually get take out from there on a Saturday 3 times a month. The food hasn't changed over the years; very tasty as always. When dining in, the atmosphere is tranquil and nice. I believe the dine in portions should be larger... More
