Our standard bench mark is the taste, texture, and temperature of Hot and Sour Soup. Here= Top Notch. The surroundings are great, the waitress was very good, and the food generous and delicious. Our only suggestion: kick the 'heat' up a notch on spicy dishes.

We had a lovely meal here. Hot & Sour Soup, followed by two mixed meat & seafood dishes, one with black bean sauce and one with a sesame sauce dip. All were delicious. Service was good, speedy and unobtrusive. A very nice find on a cold autumn evening. Highly recommended.

Average Asian experience. Mixing Chinese and Japanese says it all. Both are done Ok but with a clear American taste in mind.

I've eaten here quite a few times over the years and it's always been good food with good service. When my wife is with me she gets sushi and says it's good as well. I recommend The East and will continue to come back.

We've been dining at The East for at least fifteen years. The quality of the food and service have always been excellent. They have recently redecorated and have a new menu, but the food is still the best - fresh, colorful and delicious.

I stopped here for lunch as I was passing through Great Barrington on a day trip. I had no knowledge of any local restaurants but was in the mood for Asian cuisine. The East did not disappoint. The fried noodles brought to the table were cooked perfectly. Fresh, crisp and dry; delicious with the dipping sauce. The Hot and Sour... More
