To the staff and cooks of East. Thank you for your hospitality, finesse and supreme culinary craftsmanship. This is easily the single best restaurant I have been to and my expectations (and that of my party) were beyond exceeded. Such hand-crafted, love-filled food, designed to share in a beautiful way. Everything was beyond comparison and of the highest quality in texture, taste and value, and special considerations were made for the dinner (an 18th birthday party celebration) that made the evening personal and memorable. I could not possibly recommend the dining experience at East any higher. Congratulations to the supreme work, craft and ethic of team East. - E.F.J.F.

Some of the best vegetarian flavours we've ever eaten! The restaurant area was maybe a little bright and quiet, but beautifully clean and well presented. We'll definitely be back.

Outstanding friendly service and delicious flavoursome vegetarian food. We are staying at the Sudima hotel so the location is perfect. Looking forward to having our daily breakfasts at East.

Everything was fantastic, however the beginning of our evening was slightly ruined by a surly waitress. Perhaps she was upset or something but as the evening progressed her mood seemed to improve and it made our time even better. We could have been sold a lot more to drink had the service been more attentive but overall our experience was fantastic, the food was incredible and I will definitely be recommending this restaurant to all I can.

East was really lovely, the food was delicious and the service was quick. The sharing meal sizes were a bit small, would be a perfect place to go with a smaller group.
