“Tasty Takeaways”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I've never eaten at the restaurant, but the takeaways are exceptional. The service is sharp and well organised. Vegetables are local, in season and very fresh and tasty. Never had a disappointment.

Best Chinese ever - eat in or take away. Good menu and well priced. Our favourite Waikanae option for a meal

“Love the food but the service stinks”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

My title says it all! Eastern Egret has been around for ages and the food is fabulous. The popular opinion of the service all seems to be the same - it is dreadful! More often than not basic manners are ignored and you are left feeling the staff are doing YOU a favor by serving you. The locals call this place The Eat n Regret :)

“Very nice asian food.........but the service??????”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

The grandchildren enjoyed eating the potato basket the chicken abd cashews came in. My duck with melon was just fabulous. We all enjoyed our meal, but the service here is traditionally slow.
