We stopped at the Far East to try their Chinese food, not expecting much in such a small, out-of-the-way town.
We were greeted at the door by friendly, smiling, Melissa, who was very helpful with the menu and attentive throughout the meal.
We started with soup. The bowls of soup were steaming and delicious .
We ordered the Pu Pu platter. There were BBQ ribs, fried shrimp, chicken wings, egg rolls... yum, yum...chicken fingers, teriyaki beef on skewers. Sesame chicken is one of my favorite dishes but often it is covered with a sauce, usually made up of too much cornstarch. This one was perfect! We asked for Chinese mixed vegetables to go. We stuffed ourselves and the server graciously packed leftovers for us to take home.

Far East has been in business untouched for decades. The food is Americanized Chinese and not very good Americanized Chinese. Deep Fried food has that old oil taste common in greasy spoons and the aroma of old oil permeates the dining room. The service leaves a lot to be desired with an empty dining room, our waitress disappeared from the time our food hit the table until 15 minutes after we finished eating leaving us with empty glasses most of the meal and frustrated at not being able to leave when finished. With the much nicer eateries of Lewiston/Auburn and Farmington just 40 minutes away and Portland just 1-1/2 hours a way you have to be in a rush or not know any better to pick Far East.
