Very pleasant evening spent at this restaurant. We chose the tasting menu ( for 4) which cost £35 each but was worth every penny. Great selection of food and plenty of it, very well presented and served by a lovely waitress who told us what everything was and which accompaniments went with which dish. When we'd finished the main course and were all really full we were amazed to have a wonderful selection of desserts placed in front of us.
Overall experience was first class. We're visitors to the area but will be back again to visit this restaurant.

I have been using this restaurant since I moved to Peterborough some 8 years ago. Its sometimes excellent, sometimes not so excellent, depends on which chef is cooking. I had an Asian girlfriend for some time who refused to eat in any other Oriental restaurant apart from this one, I think that tells you how good this place can be!

Can't praise the owners, the staff and especially the chefs.
Ate there after a recommendation from a work colleague, the barge location is great.
The food is fantastic, the portions are not small at all (dont know what these people are talking about,they are either american or morbidly obese or both)
This would be a great location for a date(if any lads want to impress)

Really great all round, i cant wait to go back.

East is set on an old Dutch barge moored on the river bank in Peterborough. Bottom deck is a bar , Charters , which serves beer , several real ales and pub grub. EAST is on the top deck and serves a melange of middle and far east food , so you can have Indian , Thai or Chinese/ Asion are a mix of them, This creates an amazing battle with your taste buds. For Peterborough this is the best place to try if you are not sure which of these you like.
