    Saturday night, busy restaurant, service terrible! Went in at 7.30, still waiting for 2nd course at 9.00 and finally got away at 10.45. Good job we wanted to spend a leisurely evening with our friends. Having said that they did compensate for the poor service and the food was mostly very good.

    First class food but expect to pay a hefty price. Be warned the service charge is automatically added to the bill.

    Good parking therefore convenient for a quick meal. The food is adequate but was so much better when the place first opened. Do not wear anything smart or expensive if you visit as I have twice had food spilled on me. One of the staff was most ungracious after he had spilled food down a light coloured outfit I was wearing.

    Dined at 7.30, was busy but still had a relaxed atmosphere.Was greeted promptly on arrival.We opted for the set menu which had a good variety of dishes. Very tasty and good quality food.The only thing that would have been nice if they had a childs menu or did a set menu for the smaller person, my children are 13 and 6 so was a bit tricky finding something suitable as an adult menu which is for a minimum of 2 people would have been to much for them but they liked the actually food on that menu!! Smaller deserts etc.The staff were lovely to the children but the menus could be more accomodating.This is the only suggestion as the staff were friendly service was good and never felt rushed as you do in some resturants. Has a lovely atmosphere and will definately be coming back:-)[...]

    k so absolutely love The East for the food. We booked our table for 7pm were seated promptly and asked for our drinks order. The restaurant was not too busy at this time. We waited a little while for the server to take our order. But the food came in good time we had starters and mains. The food is excellent every time we visit, cannot fault it! The only problem they have is the service not so much the staff they try there best, its that they get busy really quickly and I don't know whether its they don't have enough front of house staff or the chefs are not quick enough? Because of the time we got there and I made of point of booking early as I know what's it's like we were fine, but there were lots of tables that arrived after us that were waiting a very long time whether it be for there initial ordering or the food. Its sound bad but if you are happy to wait and are socialising with friends or family then you may not find it a problem if your chatting away, I know when we're abroad we don;t mind waiting cos of the environment we're in but back in England it seems to be different. Again super tasty food great choice would recommend The East.

    Our table was booked for 8pm on a saturday night and we were taken to our table straight away. I appreciate the restaurant was busy, but the service was rather slow, we were in a bit of a corner but there were staff passing regularly but it was hard to get their attention. Having said that, the food was absolutely lovely.

    We booked for 1pm. The service was efficient and pleasant. The food came quickly and was abundant and tasty. The [$] lunch menu is exceptional value, and there is a good a la carte choice.
