Based on a slightly tilted barge on the river it's a good location with great views and good airy feel (air conditioner). Friendly staff and good food at a reasonable price. Sometimes a bit noisy from the bar on lower decks but in a city without much good food venues it's definite one to try

Decided last minute to try East following recommendations from work colleagues - impressed! Had the fixed lunch menu and decided to go with the duck rolls for starter then Chicken Pad Thai. The duck rolls were excellent - they also come with a lighter sweet sauce rather than hoisin sauce served in many other places and it was a refreshing... More

Was in Charters - the bar below East - and got hungry - so nipped upstairs and ordered the set lunch - a tasty two courses. Tempura veg and to follow the grilled pork with jasmine rice. Only about £12 but not really enough on the plates to satisfy my appetite.

Visited here mid-week, I have been here before, a bit out of the way on the river so not that easy to find. Friendly staff and a fantastic choice of food. When I ate here it was that busy that I had to wait to be seated. Good choice of starters I had the spiced and salted squid and for... More

We have eaten at East many times and regardless of whether it's lunch or an evening meal the food and the service are always very good. There was a buffet on today which looked great, however we decided to choose from the menu as the starters are incredible. Heavenly beef and Tamarind rolled toast always top of our list.

I have to say that you can't go wrong with the food here it's absolutely delicious but don't have the set menu because it is disappointing just order different dishes and you will enjoy it. There is one thing that needs to be sorted asap and that is the service it is very slow and disappointing if you are not... More

On a daytrip to Peterborough with a friend who had spotted this restaurant online. We weren't quite sure what we were looking for the exterior of the barge was a little offputting. So glad we went in - the service was really good and the staff very friendly. The menu choice was good and the food was genuinely lovely. Will... More

Operating on an old Dutch Barge, moored on the river, East has never disappointed when I have dined there. The food is consistently excellent, the service friendly and the ambience lively, yet relaxed and informal. Having owned and run an award winning Thai restaurant myself, I know what cuts the mustard and this place certainly does!

great food, go you won't regret it, went on the off chance and found that the sunday lunch is a buffet, £10.95 per person, not a big choice, but you can eat as much as you want, really scrummy
