East is East Silk n' Spice - West Broadway
Just like the Dhabbas of the the Silk Route, East is East is home to everyone. Artists, musicians, minstrels and youth eat next to business men, politicians and professionals. Come and experience the mystery and vibrancy of the east, right here in Vancouver.

We were seated at our table and provided menus. The waitress then disappeared for 15 minutes before we had to flag down someone else to take our order. The food and drink came relatively quick and was delicious. However, no one came to our table for the rest of the evening and we had to flag another waitress down after finishing our meal after another 20 or so minutes. Service was shocking even though they seemed to have 5 servers walking around.
Food is small portion.
Live music was great.
Would go back in a heartbeat. Food was absolutely delicious and the prices were very fair.
Great. Haven't been to this location for a while. Food was fantastic. Came so fast too. And the music was quietly in the background. Server was very attentive and caring too.
Beautiful food warm staff
East is East is a great restaurant. Food, service and environment are all great. I will certainly be back to eat again.
Super tasty food, lovely ambiance, friendly staff!
Always impressed with the food and service here. So damn good!
Great food and ambiance. Would definitely recommend East is East.
Fantastic food!! Love this place for the vegan selections. Too bad the all you can eat is so pricey now!!
delicious food, spicy but not overpowering, friendly attentive staff and pleasant ambiance that allows conversation
This is a simple exotic cuisine served in a comfortable eastern ambience. Excellent service and value. Food is tasty and well presented.
Fantastic as always
Pretty restaurant, but very uncomfortable, shallow bench seating. Basically if you want a dinner type of meal meaning Lamb, chicken or paneer (or any vegetarian dish)with rice & a side salad, it’s $39.99 per person! Otherwise you can get a burrito or quesadilla for $20. We opted to do a la carte without asking prices and pay $147.00 for 3 items, 3 salads and 3 beers! Won’t be back!
Good service, nice music (we could still have a conversation).
We haven't been out to dine much over the past year, but had a wonderful chat & meal with friends! :)
Excellent flavours. They overcharge for the rice, otherwise okay value for price. A bit slow on initial service but very responsive to requests.
We were there first time, food was very good, good value for money, great decor.
Pretty great place. The price is decent for the amount of food you can get. Great overall experience.
We make a point to eat here when we come to the city as the delicious food and friendly helpful service make our trip complete! The servers are knowledgeable about the dishes and are happy to make suggestions.
The food is truly amazing, I loved everything we had and we tried many dishes. My personal favorite was the salmon in the roti… But honestly everything else was equally delicious. We are outdoors but the indoors looks very beautiful and the live music most welcoming.
Live music, beautiful, intimate vibe and amazing food with excellent service. Perfect for a date or small group of friends..
Really enjoyed the distinct different flavors of the dishes we ordered
Good service too — will be back
Wonderful live music and terrific food!
Tasty food, delicious chai tea and excellent service
Really a whole yum experience. Love this place.
Amazing food with best service beyond comparison!! Every dish is flavorful and chai is yummy!! Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant!!
We always have a wonderful experience at East is East. The service is excellent and the staff are knowledgeable about food sensitivities. Lots of gluten free options!
Great food and service. The room had a lot of character.
A really beautiful evening. Amazing food, staff and music.
Amazing place, loved the food and the vibe. A must have if you're in Vancouver.
I had heard about East is East for years but for some reason never made it out. As one of the first meals I got to have with friends since the restrictions lifted, we were so impressed! They had a band playing beautiful dinner music, the Chai Feast Tasting Menu was an awesome way to taste a bunch of dishes, and the service was friendly. We really enjoyed our meal and drinks!
Food was fantastic and the servers were nice enough to arrange a birthday dessert for someone in the group. Would highly recommend :)
Great place for tasty food. The chai drinks are lovely and the waitress brought us some samples for us to try before ordering.
Everything was very good. We picked the feast menu for trying a maximum of things. A bit pricey overall but we'll be back !
Server was very nice. Food is always delicious and consistent
Love this place, so nice that there’s outdoor space!
Really appreciated the restaurant calling ahead to confirm and to remind us that there wasn’t a covering or heat lamps so we could dress accordingly.
Very good food and very warm and friendly staff!!!
This was our first time at East is East. Overall, our entire experience exceeded our expectations. The background music was romantic and enhanced the ambience without being too loud. The Chai Feast was amazing value and provided an opportunity to sample many delicious menu items. Will be back for sure!
Service and food was great. We got lucky and had a live cello player who played the GOT song. How could it be better?
Very nice setting with a very nice menu. Loved the experience (:
Perfect place for an exotic and romantic evening. The live masked band was so enjoyable and added to the ambiance. Delicious food flavourful and not too spicey.
