I went there at around 4:45 pm for a very late lunch. They didn't have the buffet on at that time but could order à la carte. So I ordered a drink, a bowl of miso soup and some Thai Curry with rice. I was happy with the meal, though I think the Thai curry was somewhat more oily than... More

We came here with a Group of friends. The staff is really caring and fast bringing the Drinks. Buffet has a huge variety and the mongolian grill is just awesome! The only bad thing was, when we finally got to the Dessert, the fried Bananas were empty! For the great Buffet you also have to pay great :P 18 Euros... More

Food is oily. Maybe 90% of the buffet are. This is one big location, they have quiet corners which are very comfortable and relaxing. But honestly, I won't come again. Not worth it.

The menu is extensive, and full buffet... have gotten bad looks for ordering off the menu as the staff would rather bring you a plate and point to the buffet... but the food is just not very good. The dishes look good but lack flavor... went a few times to try a couple different items, just to be sure and... More

At The East in Mannheim, you get to sample Japanese, modern Asian and Mongolian BBQ. Their Japanese à la carte menus look quite extensive, with appetizers, sushi, sashimi, udon and don. If you don't fancy Japanese, you might find something you like in their "Asian" à la carte menus, which include mainstream Chinese and Southeast Asian dishes. They offer "Peking... More

There is plenty to choose from - including a good selection of sushi. Feel free to enjoy the buffet, make your own dishes via the Mongolian BBQ, or order a-la carte from the extensive menu. My whole family enjoyed the buffet - from the salad bar to the desserts.

We came with friends for the all-you-can-eat buffet and it was alright without being special. I was disappointed from the duck and the sauces provided for the grill. I found the ingredients to be fresh but somehow the price was too high for the quantity and the variety. We would come back because it is in the center but there... More

We were surprised to see the variety of food the buffet had. It is clearly more selection compared to many other Asian buffet. They also have a bbq section in which you can select your own meat and fish and the sauce. The place is located by the central square up one level and is quite large with both indoor... More
