“Double Lobster Tails! Just check that they still have them”

The East Chinese & Japanese Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 August 2016

The East has a long Chinese and Japanese Food menu, so you should be able to find something for everyone. Their specialty is the double lobster tail dinner, which is prepared several different ways. Unfortunately, the last two times we went there, they were out of it; so if you are going for the double lobster tails, I suggest you call ahead to make sure they have them.

The restaurant itself is nothing special, just a storefront right on the highway, but it is pleasant enough, and the service is good. I think that the quality is quite uniform across the menu, from great sushi/sashimi to Cantonese favorites.

It seems as though their prices have risen quite sharply, compared to last year.

This is a good place for takeout.

Service is great. Servings are big -- usually at least 2 servings per portion. You can be in shorts or in formal dress and you'll be fine.

Stuff I've had that was really good: Singapore Mei fun, shrimp fried rice, avocado salad, General Two's chicken.

Stuff my friends have had that they loved: sushi, avocado rolls.

We've eaten here a few times and had good service and quality food. However, we've ordered food to go a couple times in the past month or so and we won''t be ordering again. The quality just wasn't there. My husband ordered a a dish with scallops, chicken, and shrimp - there was 1 piece of shrimp, maybe a scallop or two (but couldn't tell the difference between them and small pieces of chicken). Sauce was thick and sweet. My daughter had the sesame chicken (he usual favorite) and it was too sweet, overdone, and with a mushy coating.

We flipped a coin on where to eat last night & ended up with Chinese down the street from the Fairfield Inn. It was a very quiet night at the restaurant and we had a nice booth along the wall. We had a decent hot & sour soup, vegetable moo shu and Szechuan shrimp - the later both tasty. The mai tai seemed all fruit juice with no rum - our first in at least 20 years so a disappointment. Very attentive service and an overall pleasant experience. Good for groups.
