Price for 3 people for take out $35.00. Was no problem when I asked them not to add msg to my fried rice as I get a bad headache from monosodium glutamate...and it still had plenty of flavor. Eggfoo young was very good. Mongolian beef also tasty. Wontons good. The person who took the phone order spoke excellent English so... More

I can't believe I haven't reviewed here since I eat here almost weekly. The wonton soup is fan-freaking-tastic! Shrimp, chicken, beef, veggies and wontons all swimming together in a light flavorful pool.... Um YUM! They have great lunch combos. If you dine in you even get the salad but we usually grab takeout for lunch and I miss out. The... More

The food is excellent and the prices are amazingly reasonable. I really enjoy the combination hurricane, but almost anything on the menu it will be very tasty.

Whenever we have a craving for Chinese food, we go to East Cafe. Their lunch includes soup, a chicken wing and an egg roll, an entree with rice and, of course, your fortune cookie. Although the parking lot is always full, you can easily find a place to park. The service is fast and friendly. The place is casual and... More

If you go to the East Cafe, don't miss out on the wonton soup, which is excellent. Follow that with salmon fried rice and you'll be happy, but beware of the "Sichuan" version of the Happy Family, which is prepared by someone who thinks "sweet as honey" is the way to make a Szechuan dish. This is unfortunate, because the... More

I have been coming to East Cafe for well over a decade. The food never stops being a great deal and very delicious. The family style meals make it easy to eat cheap and share between people. If you go for the family dinner, you get an appetizer of egg rolls/wontons plus soup before your entree. You get a massive... More

This place has delicious food, at a los price! Myself and my family were satisfied, and the bill was no more than $30.00. Definetly coming here again! One complaint was that the lady who was serving the water was very rude. Yet, the nice waitress made up for it!
