Food was good but the service was what made the night more enjoyable, the two members of staff that were working and serving our table on that particular evening were very polite and friendly, if there was anything we needed it was not forgotten or shrugged off. The takeaway service was busy so we had to wait a little longer for food but it was not a problem as we understand that takeaway is an important part of the business and the owners' livelihood. Thank you to the young male and female waiters who made the evening enjoyable.

Such a shame, but the Eastern Promise is now just another Chinese restaurant instead of being the special place it used to be. The fantastic, unique flavours have gone to be replaced by bog standard takeaway style food. It used to be untouchable for quality, quantity and excellent service, now all is very average, but the prices are now too high for the standard you get.
We have been coming here for several years, but its now time to look elsewhere for fine Chinese food. Quite empty for a Sat night as well ,which doesn't bode well for the future. Very disappointed.

The lady who served us Annie is very sweet and kind. The overall service from all the staff was excellant we could not fault it in anyway. The food is so well prepared and cooked by the chef it is always first class. The decor is a tad tired but it is authentic to many reateraunts out in the far East. This is a special meal to have. We will save up, and go again.

Over a 20 year period I have eaten the best Chinese cuisine in Cornwall, indeed in UK at the Eastern Promise with owner Phil Tea always in attendance with excellent and knowlegable staff, always superb. This time, having moved away from the area for some years, I took my partner here one evening after telling her how brilliant this restaurant was, the food was diabolical, could have got better in any take away, staff were not bothered, when I asked for Phil I was told he had retired and had sold the restaurant. I should have realised as soon as I saw the menu, the prices were half what Phil charged and the food was 10% of the quality Phil would have served up, over the years when ever we had been to this restaurant it was always full, no matter what day it was, the way it is being run now, it will soon close, which is a real shame.

We visited friends for a week in nearby St Stephen and wanted to treat them to a nice meal out. They suggested Eastern Promise as they had eaten there on previous occasions. We were not disappointed! The service was good and the food was excellent. Thank you for a very enjoyable last night in Cornwall.
