So much fun!

I went here last night with my Omni boyfriend for a date night. There was live music and a great atmosphere when we arrived and we had great service throughout the evening. I had the vegetarian (vegan) all you can eat option and all of the dishes I tried were so yum! My favorites were the Dahl soup, Channa masala and the potato dish. Highly recommend for a fun night out!

Pros: Lots a vegan options , Great atmosphere - live music , Delicious!

Good, but expensive, food

Lots of vegetarian options, however it is rather expensive and they automatically add $2 to the bill for the musicians, whether or not you enjoyed their music.

Pros: Tasty food

Cons: Very expensive, Noisy

I belong here

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

Experience the East

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

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
