Have been here once, only for sushi. This time we tried something different. The beef tatar, sushi and side dishes. All very good, but the sushi was not fantastic. The atmosphere in east is amazing. Stuffed with people everywhere even at 23:00. And it is a big restaurant to fill out. It is definitely worth a visit. At least for... More

To be honest, my wife and I visited the restaurant with some expectations. We stayed at its hotel (W Hotel style), read the good feedbacks in Trip Advisor (incl. some bad ones) and knew the restaurant is charging a premium for its high quality food. The setting of the restaurant was good and chic. However, here is the reason for... More

Located in a beautiful brick building with Gaudi Style interior design serves good food. Different meat cuts, some pasta/rice dishes and lots of sushi completes the menu. It is pretty pricy but the quality of the food is adequate. I ordered the scallops with a salad as a starter and a dry aged rib eye steak rare and both meals... More

Always found both hotel and restaurant / bar overrated. Sehen und gesehen werden, yes, to see and to be seen. But the rest. Authenticity and quality? Nope.

We ate Asian food, but one can find a good variaties of plate. Main dish average price between 20 and 25 Euro. Quality is pretty good, portions are generous, service is friendly and very quick. You can eat for 30-40 Euro. It is in an original building, I believe it used to be a steel factory. Worth trying!

A bit crowdy but this is the "price" you pay if you like a quality food. The service from Iran originated girl was over the expectations- really professional and very friendly. Would recommend it to the persons who can value the good food. It is a fusion but really good one.

In a former iron foundry near Hamburg’s notorious redlight district, east blends gastronomy, hospitality and nightlife around a three-storey high restaurant and courtyard terrace called “Dedon Island”. Four pillars tower divide the restaurant area. Here, at the east restaurant, creativity never ends. Ingenious creations, born of the traditional, european cuisine, some of them mild and spicy embedded in asian fragrances and condiments, let your soul swing. Hamburg’s new and exquisite meeting- and melting-point.
