We enjoyed great appetizers and entrees for dinner after a long drive from NH in freezing rain! 9East was the perfect ending to a stressful day of driving and definitely a winner! The upscale interior and great service was definitely exceeding the local Asian offerings....More

Dining companion was ga-ga over this place so we went in. Extremely limited and poor selection of beer. Sushi rolls were good. Meals were fairly bland, as was the service. op that all off with hefty prices. No reason to come back.

The whole vibe of this place is cool. The fish swimming under the floor, the huge Buddah sitting under the stars, and delicious food, amazing drinks...yep....it's all here and not overly priced. Definitely worth it. Get the Scorpion Bowl. For 1 or 2 or more.

Food is delicious, and the chefs even put on a show while cooking your food on a flat top grill. Try the mandarin steak.. They also have great appetizers..

A fun atmosphere in the Hibachi area, but the food is great no matter what you order. Fish ponds are great for the kids.
