I've enjoyed this restaurant in the past so we booked a large table for my wife's birthday, and this latest visit was a bit of a disappointment. Not entirely disastrous but a bit of let down. The problem is the food itself mostly. It's quite pricey and the standard and portion size is a little on the poor side. For... More

We have been to the Eastern before and we are never disappointed. The mixture of Chinese, Thai and Malaysian dishes offers something for everyone. We had the set menu and at just over £24 for 2 courses is not cheap but we still feel is good value for excellent food. The starters included Spare Ribs (my favourite), Tempura King Prawns... More

This has been our go-to restaurant when we want something local but a bit different since it opened and the food has always been fantastic. I decided to try a starter I hadn't had before but had seen often - the Buttered Prawn. When it came I had to ask for the menu back as it was so different to... More

We had a fabulous meal last week but 2 courses and a bottle of house wine came to £65 with our tip. We shared our starters - yakatori Japanese and prawn tempura - and our mains - green curry Thai and Kung pao chicken with egg fried and jasmine rice. Service was fine. We'd go again.

Reading excellent reviews I perhaps expected too much from this place. Food was good, but I would not say the experience had an X factor and I am not sure if I go back again. If you like to try exotic cuisines its definitely worth a visit. We went on the week day evening and it was not busy at... More
