I have been searching for a really good, great atmosphere place near the Wells Area and I found it!! The Bar area is superb and the bartenders treat you so nice. The food is exactly what i had expected....simply put...really good!

That's a pun, as years ago this place was called Yummy's. Great Chinese food and really good service. They also have Japanese and Thai food. I have never tried that, the Chinese is too good. Worth a trip and the prices are pretty good. Sunday buffet is great, too...I think it's $14.95, and all you can eat. And there is... More

Went watch the Patriots. Mai Tais were delightful. Friendly servers. Egg drop soup hot and delicious. Combo dinners plentiful. Chix fingers more meat than breading, plump juicy wings, carmelized bones ribs. Fried rice dry but saved with duck sauce. Definitely going back.

Arrived late on Sunday evening and was the only one in a very large restaurant which specializes in its buffet. Enjoyed steamed veggies and shrimp after a so so hot and sour soup. Waitstaff was kind and considerate.

We have visited East frequently and until recently had an overall good experience. I'm not certain what changed (in terms of management) but after my last two experiences I won't go back. About a week ago I had a meal that was completely inedible (pad thai that was actually in a full soup broth). They took it back very happily... More

If you are looking for something different at the beach, try Chinese at the East Restaurant. What a variety and the food is delicious. Eat in or take it to the beach. It will add to a perfect day!

You really need to try this restaurant!! I did take-out and the food was fantastic!! When I picked up my order, I was so impressed with the interior of the restaurant, that I intend to go back with my family to try their Sunday buffet.

I have dined at East a few times since they moved from the previous location in Ogunquit several years ago, we used to frequent the old location and routinely had takeout from there over the years. I will say that the food served to me over the last couple of years is very inconsistent. Lunch specials tend to be very... More

Boy this place has everything. Chinese, Japanese, Thai. And everything is great. Started eating here about 20 years ago and every time I'm in Wells I just have to come here. Loved the fried rice and meats and got brave and tried a few other things. My absolute fav is the pork lettuce wraps with that sauce. Yum. Can't wait... More

As Asian restaurants go, this one is mediocre at best. I wanted a change from seafood and thought this might be an option. Nope, there were six of us and none of the entrees were spectacular. The fried rice was a bit soggy and I was disappointed with the entree. I think I'll look elsewhere next time for Chinese food!!!!
