I casually walked in here one night for dinner and was left 100% satisfied. I ordered the special cucumber roll and the sexy roll (highly recommended) and was absolutely blown away. The special cucumber roll was fresh and delicious and the sexy roll was savory and amazing. Honestly, this is the most amazing sushi I've had in the city and I'd recommend it to anyone. The service is great, I always have the same waitress and shes super friendly (I've been there about 4 times now). This is one of the few places where the shrimp tempora is in the small rolls instead of those huge awkward rolls. I'm extremely happy I found this place and am proud to say I've FINALLY found my favorite sushi spot in the city!

I've eaten here four times now. I keep returning to Chinatown East because there is a nice atmosphere, the menu has a lot of choices and the prices are good. The noodles are great here, portion sizes are very big and there are great sushi and cocktail deals too. We had some issues with the service on my last visit, our orders were mixed up but overall the staff are friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that I thought the chicken had a strange rubbery texture both times I had it so maybe order pork or beed instead. But overall, a nice place to eat.

This place is so much fun! Much like many of the restaurants in NYC I've found the key is navigating the place correctly for the right experience. This place is amazing. Here's the deal, it's $30 all you drink (sake, beer and wine) and all you can eat sushi. If you're going for a bday or pre-dinner, it's perfect. Everyone throws in $30 bucks, you do 10,000 sake bombs and head on your merry way, with a very solid buzz. I've always had a great experience with their sushi rolls, entrees ... eh.

I think they have good food, but their sushi can't compete with Isohama. I recomend having the dragon roll. It is a very kid friendly restaurant. Well mostly on weekdays and on the weekend they turn the lights down put music on and have drink specials. I think they have good service and I like how they give you fortune cookies at the end of dinner. They have take out and you can get free sodas depending how much your dinner costs. All I know is that if you pay over thirty dollars you get three free sodas. It is a great place and it has cool colored lights that make it a nice place to observe.

This was some of the most unappetizing Chinese food I have ever had. I ordered Moo Shoo pork and there was barely any pork, it was all cheap vegetables. And the beef with brocolli was stringy and salty. If they can't do the basics right, I doubt they can do anything right.

This restaurant is nice and simple and is very easy to bring young children and picky eaters. The food came out fast and it was pretty good. If you are in the neighborhood and want nice and simple Asian food then you should try Chinatown East for sure!

I have ordered delivery from here since the first week they opened. In the begining they were on point. Their Sezchuan Chicken Dumpling and sushi rolls were amazing! Their service was very fast. However after the first couple of weeks they changed their recipie for the Sezchuan Chicken Dumplings... thinned out their sauce, and changed the style of dumplings... and their sushi appeared sloppily put together (but still tasted good). Their individual sushi pieces are smaller than average as well. I decided to go to the resturant and eat in to see if there was a difference. NOTE: the crowd is very rowdy and loud due to the "all you can drink special" while a great idea... it doesn't make for a pleasant dinner out. Their in restaurant presentation is great but they still managed to mess up on our order 2 times! I'm torn because I think they are one of the best sushi places in the upper east side esp when it comes to price... but I guess you get what you pay for:( too bad... If you choose to eat there, I do recommend their Shrimp in Lobster sauce... it is pretty good... but order delivery if you want to keep your sanity!
