We went for the Sunday buffet which has a reasonable selection of tasty food. Good views overlooking the river Nene. Be wary though that this venue puts a 10% service charge onto your bill and drinks can be quite pricey. Having said that I will be going again as the service, food and ambience is good.

Interesting restaurant located on a Dutch barge on the river. The food does not quite live up to the surroundings, especially the vegetarian pad Thai noodles which were very bland. The tofu was good and the Singapore curry OK. The home made coconut ice cream, however, was delicious. The staff were welcoming and the service good.

Usually very reliable, East let us down this time and it was a special occasion. Birthday girl's main course was lukewarm. It was sent back but the second attempt was no better really and was left uneaten. I'm sure it would have been replaced for a third time but as there were only two of us there, my meal was already eaten so it spoiled the whole experience really. East didn't charge us for the one main course which was fair, but it wasn't really the point.

I would absolutely recommend East. The food is just incredible, if a little pricey but you pay for quality. The staff are very friendly. Nice atmosphere although can become a little noisy during the busier periods.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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

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.
