It was our first time and the food, service and music was really nice. We had the endless sample option called The Feast.
Our first time here as a party of 5 celebrating our son & his girlfriend's birthdays.
Easy booking with Open Table, great service from the time we arrived, amazing food, great value.
We will definitely recommend this place & will absolutley be back.
My husband & I as seniors, appreciated how easy it was to have a conversation with our group, despite the closeness of the tables & the music.
The chai feast was great! A good selection of vegetarian, poultry, and fish options. I look forward to coming back.
Service was not great . It was a family dinner to celebrate a B’day day party and the server told that she would be bringing a dessert for the Bday person but she made us wait so long that we all were frustrated and decided to leave .
Great food and service always. Come here fairly often.
Love this restaurant but making customers pay for the talent you bring in is tacky.
My 5yr old asked to see the Flamingo dancers for his birthday. He loves watching and mimicking their moves. The service was friendly and prompt.
Great entertainment and good!
We really enjoyed a vegetarian
Food was great, service has always been slow.
I was really excited to see the performance but we got seated in the back corner where none of us could see anything. We still had to pay the coverage charge which I thought was unfair since we couldn't see it at all to appreciate the full experience.
Also our waitress was very rushed and took our food away even though we had not finished. Good was ok. Don't get the roti as it is just plain tortilla.
Great food. Went for the Chai Feast and the lamb dish was awesome!
The food and ambiance was unreal. I will definitely return for more!!! such a cute place
Pricey if you have kids, go fo the per person, not the a la carte. Amazing night out, entertainment is the icing on the cake.
The food and service are good! Apparently, it’s bit noisy.
Lovely experience and ambiance. Waitress was very friendly
Amazing decor. Awesome food. Very loud with live music. Not good for conversation.
I had a better experience this time. The last time they overbooked their reservation.. told us that we have the table for 2 hours max but food took about an hour to arrive because it was super busy and the worker rushed us to get the bill. This time around... i guess they weren’t as busy, but food still took about 30 mins to come out..got to stay an extra 20 minutes pass the allotted time.
Awesome atmosphere and amazing food!! Also, the staff was super friendly.
Food was great. Seating was terrible. They sat us at a kiddie table my knees were above the table when seated. Could not do anything to be comfortable. I am 6'-4" asked to be moved, other tables were open. They said, were not available.
My favourite nightclub in Van., where people bring their babies. Looks like the place belongs in rural BC. That's a compliment.
I am grateful there is at least East is East in Vancouver that still takes reservations!!! For someone like me who has ability challenges the options for good restaurants are becoming more limited because they don't take reservations. So thank you East is East. Please don't stop taking reservations. It's very important to keep this inclusive practice.
been going to East is East last 4 years and always impresses my friends , Birthdays , get together ,,loved the whole experience .
My only negative on this Friday is the table closes to stage , as there were 4 fairly tall guest and was Blocking the Flamenco Dancers Feet ( very important to see those movements )
I'll definitely bring more friends to your very fine gem of a venue.
Great food and service. Atmosphere was great. Must try.
Lovely service, food was delicious. Jazz music didn't match the ambiance or the food. Odd choice and everyone was charged $10 to listen to it regardless of whether you were listening or not.
This is a really great restaurant. They cater to vegans and gluten free dietary restrictions. I don't eat gluten out of personal preference and I am vegan, so that is wonderful.
Loved the Halibut South Indian curry with Basmati rice. Yum!!
Good Customer service , convenient location.
Very happy with my experience dining at east is east on Main! Really cool ambience and the food was delicious! ❤️
Overall it was okay but I felt the quality was not as good as before or even as good as the one on West Broadway. The "feast" was not as good as it usually is and I felt it was overall on the pricey side.
What a pleasant surprise to have something so delicious for lunch... I will definitely return.
The food is always amazing!! I just wish I could eat more, I always get too full to quick. The Chocolate Pudding is the best 💜💜
Great ambience and service. Staff very hospitable and attentive to your requests. Quality of food above average.
Everything about this restaurant is great. The food, service, eclectic feel and entertainment is all wonderful. A great place to dine out.
Amazing food, service, ambiance and value. Chai Feast was delicious. Will definitely return!
The food choices were excellent, and the portions generous. We enjoyed the tasting menu and appreciated the range of flavours and variety of options on offer. Really delicious, and great value.
Food was delicious as always! Service was not as attentive as usual but was adequate. The food quality made up for it.
This restaurant is like a gem amongst others. I first discovered the one in Kitsilano, but just tried the one on Main Street. It is also very unique experience!
It was awesome, there were eight of us friends and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a little loud with the live music and dancing, ie hard to chat and catch up, but still a lot of fun. My food was delicious. The only thing I would change is the seating, I was on a low wooden bench and my back was achey by the end of the night.
I love East is East! They have the best meals and ambiance. I feel like I am in the Far East and I love the live music/dance, always wonderful! I highly recommend it!
We loved our experience. We did the dine out menu which was fantastic! Being welcomed with a small tea was a really nice touch as well, would for sure go back!
