The food is excellent and the prices are amazingly reasonable. I really enjoy the combination hurricane, but almost anything on the menu it will be very tasty.

Whenever we have a craving for Chinese food, we go to East Cafe. Their lunch includes soup, a chicken wing and an egg roll, an entree with rice and, of course, your fortune cookie. Although the parking lot is always full, you can easily find a place to park. The service is fast and friendly. The place is casual and... More

If you go to the East Cafe, don't miss out on the wonton soup, which is excellent. Follow that with salmon fried rice and you'll be happy, but beware of the "Sichuan" version of the Happy Family, which is prepared by someone who thinks "sweet as honey" is the way to make a Szechuan dish. This is unfortunate, because the... More

I have been coming to East Cafe for well over a decade. The food never stops being a great deal and very delicious. The family style meals make it easy to eat cheap and share between people. If you go for the family dinner, you get an appetizer of egg rolls/wontons plus soup before your entree. You get a massive... More

Combo Lo mein, sesame chicken has stolen many friends hearts of their local eatery.I personally recommend the sesame shrimp. Hot n sour soup is better than any other. Their bobo platter(pupu platter) is always a must when apps... More

This place has delicious food, at a los price! Myself and my family were satisfied, and the bill was no more than $30.00. Definetly coming here again! One complaint was that the lady who was serving the water was very rude. Yet, the nice waitress made up for it!

Stopped here with my dad for dinner on our way to pick up family from DIA. We were seated right away and brought water and hot tea. The prices were excellent, especially for the area. We ordered Singapore Noodles and the asparagus & chicken, both delicious. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Our food arrived quickly. Overall it was... More

Great food, fast service, nice staff. Lunch is great, too with a nice selection. We've been multiple times and it never disappoints. My husband always orders the Happy Family and me the Chicken Salad!
