When we are in Maine for vacation we eat seafood for dinner every night. One night the seafood places were extremely packed so we decided to try some place different. We drove past the East Restaurant and decided to stop in. The drinks were very good and the service was friendly and efficient. Our food arrived quickly and I was... More

The food is on the better side of average, but the prices are much higher than that. You will get good Chinese food here, but be prepared to pay for it. Perhaps because it's in a tourist location?

I was alone and only tried the Chinese food. While it is not anything exceptional, it is quite decent food, and the service was quick and quite friendly. My only issue is that after I was served, my server did not come back to offer a refill on my drink, and that would have been appropriate and useful. As I... More

I have eaten here several times and each time I order something different from the menu. This time I chose a combination dinner. Lo Mein chicken, pork fried rice and an egg roll. The portion was generous. The server was attentive and polite. Since I have never had Lo Mein before I had nothing to compare it too. It was... More

I took Grandkids there last weekend. The service was great. The food was okay. I felt as if it was mediocre but fried rice and a PU PU platter aren't exciting. the servings were large and we took lots home. The atmosphere was nice. It was quiet and not very busy. the menu is huge and it makes for a... More

We dined at East tonight. The atmosphere was very nice, noise level was quiet. My husband said the Hot and Sour soup was the best he has had in a long time. He also enjoyed the Kung Po Beef dinner. I ordered the Roast Pork Egg Foo Young. They were very generous with the pork but I felt the dish... More

We love good Chinese food. This restaurant is not bad, not exceptional, however. Pleasant staff. If you are in Maine for seafood, this is not the place. If you have a craving for Chinese food, try them.

Thank LoveGoodFood207
