We were greeted warmly and taken to our table to meet our friends. The staff were excellent at helping us through the menu and adjusting to suit our children and us.
The food was fantastic and plently for all 8 of us.

We celebrated a family birthday here on a Sunday afternoon. The staff were friendly and the service was ok but the standard of food was not good. Each dish was slopped on a plate. There was no appealing presentation. It looked unappetising. The sauces tasted processed and there was too much sauce compared to actual content. We have been here previously for an evening meal and it was much better but that was some time ago.

Thanks for taking time to review us ,all starter platters are well garnished and nicely presented but main courses are not because more than 40 dishes are ordered for table of 10 people and sometimes even more and practically it’s not possible please bear in mind this is freshly cooked food straight from kitchen and you can order as many times you like not like standing buffets where food is touched in different ways and stays there for long and not fresh.
Please try to consider all the factors involved before reviewing .
Regards
The Eastern

First of all, we were given a warm welcome! The staff are amazing! We were seated by the window, just a heads up, it got a little drafty so choose a table closer to the centre. The portion sizes were outstanding, I was quite fulfilled after my starter of hoi sin duck pancake rolls- 10/10! The menu caters to all requirements, I have to say the Thai curries are exceptional! This restaurant is a must go to, if near the Wylde Green/ Sutton area.

Just ate a fantastic meal with my wife . Great service and the food was to die for . The duck in plumb sauce was so good I had to order some Roti bread to dip
In the sauce . Been here a several times ( when I the area) over the last couple of years - and it gets my vote every time.

Went for Sunday lunch and was surprised hoe empty the restaurant was. Ate from the a la Carter menu and the food was first rate. Other appeared to be eating from the all you can eat buffet which was all freshly cooked, very cheap, and seemed to comprise as many smaller versions of dishes from the a la Carte menu that you could eat. Not sure how the restaurant made money at the fixed price but it looked very popular with the three or four other couples there.
