It was a Wednesday noon, no one there. Seated quickly, pleasantly. Attentive staff ... water and tea. I had the sesame beef, and all was warm and fine, not very tasty, but for saltiness. 4 fresh sprouts of brocolli... understeamed. Not bad tho, I like crisp. The beef was strangely tender... though I guess that's a goal. Good pork fried... More

We love visiting East primarily due to the combo selections on the last page of the menu - you get an entree, pork fried rice or white rice, and an egg roll for around $8.99 at lunch or $11.99 at supper. I don't care for egg rolls, so I always upgrade to steak teriyaki for an extra 75 cents. Portions... More

We ordered takeout when we spent a few days at the beach this week. We'd never been before so we were not sure what to expect. We each got combination plates with a variety of appetizers and were very pleased. We liked that you could make substitutions for a minimal upcharge to customize our meals. The food was fresh and...

We used to love East, but the last few times I've gone I have been disappointed--cool/cold food, very noisy environment, less tasty dishes, uncomfortable room temperatures {too cold!}..not a fan any longer!

That's a pun, as years ago this place was called Yummy's. Great Chinese food and really good service. They also have Japanese and Thai food. I have never tried that, the Chinese is too good. Worth a trip and the prices are pretty good. Sunday buffet is great, too...I think it's $14.95, and all you can eat. And there is... More

Went watch the Patriots. Mai Tais were delightful. Friendly servers. Egg drop soup hot and delicious. Combo dinners plentiful. Chix fingers more meat than breading, plump juicy wings, carmelized bones ribs. Fried rice dry but saved with duck sauce. Definitely going back.

Arrived late on Sunday evening and was the only one in a very large restaurant which specializes in its buffet. Enjoyed steamed veggies and shrimp after a so so hot and sour soup. Waitstaff was kind and considerate.

We have visited East frequently and until recently had an overall good experience. I'm not certain what changed (in terms of management) but after my last two experiences I won't go back. About a week ago I had a meal that was completely inedible (pad thai that was actually in a full soup broth). They took it back very happily... More

If you are looking for something different at the beach, try Chinese at the East Restaurant. What a variety and the food is delicious. Eat in or take it to the beach. It will add to a perfect day!
