These Chinese owner/operators prepare Everything from scratch and take well deserved pride in the fact that everything is Very fresh. The only downside is, as others have written, they only have minimum staff, so when they get busy, waiting times can be long.

Not busy and run by family. A little slow on service but the food is good. Would go back but give yourself some time.

I had pre-booked my food order 24 hours earlier (on Dec 30th) which I wanted to pick up at 8:30pm on December 31 for a nice Chinese meal on New Year's Eve! However once I arrived at the restaurant at 8:15pm, I was told that I would have to wait with the other people there! I ended up having to... More

Visiting family in Lake Echo, we decided to order a takeaway from here for dinner. Telephoned the order ahead and was told 45 minutes before collection. Our daughter and her husband waited this length of time and went to collect our order. Quick mention that she is a new mum of 2 weeks and breastfeeding, so a quick trip to... More

We've twice eaten in, waterfront views of Lake Loon, and been the only customers once, second time, only one other couple. Food is plentiful, and great tasting, prices are good. Take out, it's always ready when we arrive, and always as ordered. It's a favorite spot for us for a treat, and a guarantee we'll have leftovers for lunch the... More

Went to East West with my daughter a in-law and had an awesome meal! Best garlic ribs ever! The vegetable egg rolls were very good too. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for Chinese food!

My wife and I moved to Dartmouth 3 years ago and were dismayed to learn that the chinese options were few and of poor quality. We tried East West after being tired of burned rice and flavourless everything else. We have only ever had take out so I can't speak to the dine in experience. These guys make a good... More
