Delicious banquets for 2 each time we have dined. Select a window seat for great views of the river.

Christmas night out with mates. Tried to book online, system said full for days - phoned and was given a table for when we wanted! Usual East oriental food, great choice (if you like that sort of food, avoid if you don't!). Great friendly but professional service, including honest recommendations. Food very good, no waiting even when busy, great presentation

I'm not particularly fond of this restaurant but we visited with friends. On this occasion, a busy Saturday night, I have to say the food was flavoursome, freshly cooked and the dining service fine. My tempura prawns were lightly cooked and the batter was perfect. My chilli beef was flavoured just right. Everyone on the table had a similar experience... More

Visited on a Saturday night with friends and had the set menu c. The food was simply delicious - well cooked, fresh and beautifully presented. The plum sauce served with the crispy aromatic duck was the best I've tasted. Portions were on the small side but we were full after we had eaten the dessert as well. Prices are quite... More

I have to say that I have never been let down by this place. Their service has been brilliant, warm and welcoming and nothing being to much. They cook the food to your liking if requested and advise on every dish. The food has been perfect each time, always consistently great and always the same. If you want to try... More

We ate at East last month for my brother's birthday and, as usual, the quality of the food serves was superb. From the complimemtary prawn crackers, to the pork belly, everything tasted great. Compared to chinese takeaways, the food here tastes fresh and of good quality - you can really taste the difference in the meat and veg. Its all... More

I was taken here by a friend who wanted to try it for a first time. The location is lovely - a barge conversion with a bar downstairs (sorry - below deck) and a lovely covered restaurant above with attractive decor. Being mid-week the place wasn't busy so we probably needn't have booked. The service was reasonably prompt and the... More

Nice food but a cereal bowl size rice portion for a meal for 4 is poor. The other issue is that they automatically added 10% as a service charge to the bill which we asked to be removed. Service ok but by no means warrants a £16 tip. Used to like it here but not sure if I'll return based... More

The East Oriental Restaurant was only a five minute walk from my hotel - the Queensgate. The restaurants location exudes an excellent ambience being situated on a long boat moored on the river. Very romantic - pity I was alone on this particular occasion!!! The interior decor is superb being modern with a great deal of natural light wood. Service... More
