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.

We really enjoyed this eatery. The food was great, the drinks potent, and the wait staff was friendly and efficient. We enjoy going there for their happy hour too.

Ordered shrimp chow mein for take-out. Got back to our hotel-and there's no rice. Maybe they don't give rice with chow mein in Maine, but in NJ &NY that's the way they do it. Also, the shrimp were the size of dimes. The smallest I've ever seen in chow mein.

The price we paid for their Buffet was way to high for what they offered (standard buffet fair). The food was not good, several trays were empty or nearly empty. Our waiter took forever to come to the table to ask about drinks, take our plates, and get our bill. We actually had to wait over ten minutes to be... More

I'm not certain why there are so many negative reviews for this restaurant. My husband and I went with my parents and we were all very happy with our meals. The food was tasty, they had a huge selection and the food was still hot when we got back to our hotel room to eat. They have a huge selection... More
