Amazing as always, had to wait a while to get our drinks but the food is exceptional and the service is v good. Well worth the cost for such a unique experience.

I can't review much other than the Singapore chicken curry as I have that every time as I love it! Service is always great. Drinks are expensive but I'm often driving so stick to water.

Lovely food and great service, but it’s quite small inside and it gets very noisy specially if there’s a band on downstairs.

Great meal - the Oriental Platter starter was fantastic, and the Thai Green Chicken Curry was excellent. Room was slightly cold, something they are aware of, given signs asking people to close doors. All in all, a great meal.

waiter was excellent, very dry sense of humour which we found entertaining! Food was very nice but I think personally it’s a little on the steep side, would recommend for a special occasion, but maybe not just popping out to grab something to eat!!
Not much ambience to start with but that did improve as the evening went on and more people arrived at the restaurant.

Wasn't very impressed, we went for the buffet deal which had only 3 different starters including prawn crackers and maybe 5 different curry dishes which weren't anything special at all. We thought this would be a great place for a la carte but if the food is the same standard as the buffet I would be very disappointed. In total for 2 buffet deals and two cokes we ended up spending £36 which I think was massively overpriced for what it was.

We did not allow the exuberance of our neighbouring guests to spoil a very enjoyable dining experience - the food was well presented and of exceptional quality, sufficiently spiced and amply proportioned. The staff were courteous and the service, fantastic, with a really good choice of ambient background music. All in all, a brilliant experience and we will definitely be returning.

We always receive outstanding service and food. My only complaint is that the restaurant seems to rely on website bookings and we cannot always book a table at late notice.

Whilst a little pricey, this is without a doubt some of the tastiest food you’ll ever eat. I’ve been coming here for the last 15 years and never had a bad meal. Combined with this, the staff are really friendly and many of them long serving.

As an alternative and cheaper option, try the 2 course lunch menu for £11.95. Choice is limited as it’s a set menu with half a dozen or so options for each course but they’re all delicious so enjoy..!!

The food was absolutely amazing! And once we managed to place our order, it was served quickly. Unfortunely we had to go to the bar several times to ask for a waiter to come take our drinks order. At times we felt forgotten about. We went midweek and it wasn’t too busy.

Have been going to East for the best part of 20 years and have never had a bad meal. A little pricey but you pay for what you get which is stunning food in a nice atmosphere.

Added to that a bar downstairs (Charters) that offers good beer, lots of gin varieties and often live music, you’ve got a great setting for a night out.

Quite possibly my favourite restaurant in the whole world..!!

Another lovely Saturday night at East. Table by the window to watch the swans glide by. Tried a couple of new things on the menu. Wife had the whole sea bass in banana leaf, which wasn't cheap at £18.50, but she said it was terrific. I had the Korean confit duck and it was OK but I prefer it crispier so that it just falls off the bone. Service was excellent, as always. Will be back again soon.

Lovely staff. Food wasn't great at all. Went for the Sunday buffet and it was disappointing. Considering there were only 4 main dishes, I was surprised that I had to repeatedly go back to wait until the meat was replenished. People had picked out the meat, and the sauces sat for a while. The chicken wings were lovely though!

Wouldn't go back
