We have cone here for years and tonight was disappointing. We ordered the shallot pancakes which were over cooked and with minimal filling. Again greens that were overly salty & oily. The E-Shand eggplant tasted off and so did the wine! What happened to this restaurant?!

I come here every now and then and we always order the spicy chilli chicken. There used to be another restaurant on henley beach road that sold it too but it has closed since. Today's visit was a little disappointing as all the battered dishes were quite soggy and not fresh. Decided to try the shrimp paste beef and found... More

A lovely little restaurant in Gouger Street. The waiting staff was particularly friendly and charming. We were after food that might be good for people with diabetic and the restaurant gave us beautiful steam fish for the memorable dinner out!

This is a fast and friendly restaurant that always serves top quality food at any stage of their opening times. Always friendly and always helpful, this is my go to place for dinner on Gouger st.

Looking for a meal up the casino end of Adelaide CBD after 10pm is hopeless but our spirits were thoroughly revived by a visit to this restaurant, still bustling at 11pm and excellent food.Can recommend the tea-smoked duck, and never had the grilled eel dish before, so that was a special treat. Quick and efficient service too.

I love this place, been coming back here for years. Owner is always friendly and ensures you get taken care of. Even more awesome is they're open to 1am most nights if you need a good feed after hours.

On Chinese New Year when most places were closing the East Taste was still cheerily taking customers. Typical traditional Chinese food with rapid turn around.

After reading many reviews we decided to give East Taste a try. Sat outside - perfect weather helps. Super friendly waitress seats us and brings drinks list and menus. Boy what a great wine list. And reasonable too. Order curry puffs which were the only let down of the night. A tad on the cool side. Now for mains -... More

A work client recommended this to me...especually the salt and pepper eggplant. I often find salt and pepper dished are just something in batter. This was great. The salt and pepper certinly cleaned the sinuses and hit the spot i so often look for in having spicey food. The shredded fried beef was great. The large size pieces of beef... More
