First Review by vegan frog

I belong here - Edit

I discovered East is East a couple of years ago and I just belong here. The food is flavourful and authentic, in addition to the traditional ambiance of the space. The staff is extremely friendly and readily answer any questions you may have about the menu or ingredients. The vegan chocolate mousse is ABSOLUTELY DIVINE! I love the silk route feast because it gives you the chance to try everything on the menu to see which items you like. If it's your first time here, I highly recommend doing the feast, even though it is a little pricey, it is totally worth it! It's unlimited so you can keep ordering your favourite items after you've tried everything, so you will not leave hungry. I always leave with a massive food baby when I dine at East is East!

Pros: EXCELLENT food!, friendly staff, beautiful ambiance

Lots of vegan options - Edit

The new location on Broadway is absolutely beautiful and the food better than ever. It is much bigger than the other location and very well decorated. A perfect place for date night or dinner with friends.

The service recently has been great and there is a vegan server on staff who knows everything about the menu and is so helpful!

My favourites are the eggplant dish and the tai tofu curry! The rice is also very tasty, They have so many vegan options and the flavours are very consistent.
Also, do not miss the chai tea. It is the best in the city (and possibly ever...)! They have soy or almond chai.

Cons: Music can be loud in the evening

Experience the East - Edit

Had lunch today at EiE's Broadway location; always up for some Persion / Afghan food! We got the Boulani (an absolute must-have, trust me), and we tried the Double Roti Wrap - Ghandi's Breakfast (a whipped spinach mushroom mix) and The Gypsy (baked eggplant with butternut squash and mango). The food was very flavourful, except for the side dish of dahl that came with the Roti meal. I don't know if the flavours were so strong from everything else, that perhaps the Dahl's was muted, but it was quite tasteless. That aside, though, the boulani more than made up for it, and the rotis were really good to try as well. The seating and ambiance is really something else, decorated with flowy curtains, salt lamp candle holders, pillows and wooden benches draped with blankets. The small tent room right at back is the place to be!

Pros: The Boulani, Beautiful ambiance

Cons: Dahl Soup Side

Yummy food - Edit

When ever we visit Vancouver we eat at east is east. Being vegan and gluten free they are very good. They have a rice wrap and the fillings are vegan and yummy.
My family are meat eaters and we all love this restaurant.
When ever I have to fly I pick up food from here for the flight.

Pros: Great food, Great knowledgable staff, Nice atmosphere

Cons: None, None, None
