By far and away the best restaurant in Peterborough, the food is consistently above average and the staff are super friendly. A little on the pricey side but well worth a visit for special occasions or for the lunch buffet which is a snip at 2 courses for £12.95
Lovely setting. Wonderful food. Really enjoyable evening
Overall the food was nice as always. But just a couple of small things that could have been better. We had the mixed oriental starts for 2, the heavenly beef was dry and over cooked and Tempura battered aubergine was soggy. The Aubergine seems to be a bit out of place.
Great service - really nice atmosphere and the food was delicious! We’ve been to East a few times, and we’re always impressed - will definitely go again!
A favourite restaurant of ours with lots of choices.
I have never been disappointed with anything of the East experience.
Nice food but very little choice. Also some of the food for buffet was hot from the kitchen but sat on a cold plate which obviously meant it got cold in no time.
We weren't told where napkins were and views from boat were crap. I mean I suppose it is just opposite a load of flats.
Wouldn't recommend the place die to the fact it's far out of town and thr choice was poor. I did enjoy the food but not enough to warrant paying £13. More like £10 as there are plenty more buffets with double thr choice of food
Excellent food, particularly the green curry. Perfect beer (can bring up a pint from downstairs) and lovely view.
Friendly staff, excellent food riverside setting...all good.
I didn't find the food as good from when we last visited. Very plain taste of the Chinese food. Beef was overcooked. Starters were good. Disappointed that they automatically include service in the bill and even then don't list it as optional. I don't think this is moral.
Good food, pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff.
We brought two friends to the restaurant who were delighted with everything. Lovely dining experience with great food. Loved the pad Thai prawns. Chicken satay starter was a great hit. Curries were excellent. Will all be coming back soon.
Remains one of the best places to eat locally, tasty food with lots of choice, lively atmosphere and usually someone we know also enjoying a meal on the boat!
Fantastic restaurant with the food always excellent and perfect service to match.
Lovely and relaxing, especially watching the activities on the river.
Four of us ate on a Monday evening so it was fairly quiet. The food and service is always consistently good and this occasion was no different. We had the set menu D at £29.50 per person. We particularly enjoyed the sea bass dish and reading beef. A decent bottle of white Rioja at £22 a bottle is good value. Very friendly, helpful and professional service.
The buffet worked well. Good selection of foods, everyone could have what they wanted and as much as they wanted. Made for a relaxed Sunday lunch. Good value too.
The buffet food was terrible, same as going to your local take away and not a good one
Excellent food and superb location. A very popular restaurant with very good service.
The food was really nice and the ambience was good. A seat next to the water would have been even better.
The server didn't know what a sauvignon blanc was so I ended up having house white.
A nice place with good food and I would definitely go back.
Fantastic as always beautiful food and always cant wait to come back .
We are big fans of the Sunday buffet. It's great value seeing as you can go up as many times as you'd like.
The service is always great.
It's lovely eating with a river view!
Good service, nice decor (crisp white tablecloths), You have to walk the gauntlet of the bar outside where people have had a lot to drink but the welcome was warm and a good menu which represented good value. The big disappointment was the food. I expect Thai food to be delicate in terms of flavour, the sauces and the cutting of the vegetables and meat and this was not
Great food - never disappointed with the food or service here.
Wish we had chosen from menu instead of set meal, but enjoyed the visit
I feel like as soon as we arrived, staff attitude made us feel uncomfortable. We booked twice by accident and were called out on this. Then we asked if the prawn crackers that were on the table are vegetarian. (sensations prawn crackers are) The response was "well they are prawn crackers so obviously they are not". I just feel like from the moment we walked in the staff had an unwelcoming aura. The gentleman in the white shirt however was very friendly and provided a great service. The others however made us feel uncomfortable, for a 9 year anniversary it set a awkward tone. Food was ok. Portions not that big. It is very aesthetically pleasing though (the look of the inside and looking out onto the swans) I have to say but don't think we will be returning.
We always have an excellent meal at East.
Well run and good staff.
2nd time we have been to east and it never disappoints. The food is amazing, all freshly cooked and the most wonderful combinations . Service is prompt and very friendly . Lovely atmosphere suitable for older families and couples . Really can't fault it and well worth the money.
Food was amazing, will definitely be coming back soon.
Our first time at East and will definitely not be the last, fabulous all round!
Nice restaurant, good food . I would recommend and visit again.
Lovely food amazing service will be definitely going back soon
Food was excellent, ambience not quite as expected. Restaurant feels a little tired and views not as good as expected. Good service apart from getting the bill
Great riverside thai restaurant, good service and very tasty excellent food, not to badly priced either, very accessible restaurant....only minus point you couldn't buy a beer from the Charters bar in the restaurant
Nice discovery! Lovely variety and good location. Food was brilliant, and prior to going it had been suggested that the price was a little steep - we didn’t think so. Well worth a try!
Loved it! Will definitely visit again.
Great food and service! Would recommend to anyone that loves Thai food.
Lovely food & service I’m gluten free so My choice is limited but it’s never too much trouble for them to accommodate me
Our experience wAs good and we shall hopefully be retu4ning.
Just a little slow to get going but a great evening
Lovely food, good service. Disagree with adding a service charge without asking first, particularly with only 2 people dining.
