I ordered from them online and they messed up my address. The delivery guy called me to get the correct address but it already took too long. I ordered sweet & sour pork and sweet & sour chicken. Neither dish had the sweet and sour sauce on the actual meat. The sauce came separately and the dishes didn't taste good. I also ordered shrimp lo mein and received beef lo mein instead. Nothing about this order was actually what I ordered. Judge for yourself but you might be better off picking a different place right away.

I ordered the four seasons veggie delight - it was absolutely delicious and healthy! It is quite the challenge to find a good quality chinese restaurant - I am so happy I discovered this place.

Had the pleasure of eating here while babysitting a relative's kid. Ordered the Shredded Duck with scallions and pancakes with plum sauce. At $12 it was a steal and undoubtedly one of the best things I have ever tasted in my life. Unlike most places where duck can be greasy and unappealing, hear it was the consistency of pulled-pork BBQ, moist, with deep, savoury flavours. The child ordered general tso's chicken, which I have to say was good and great value. I will travel from the West Side to have that duck again!

I'm from California and finding good chinese its not easy. I love Chinatown East by far. They have a great price on the weekends (Lunch special runs into the weekends) and they ALWAYS deliver great food. I have yet to be dissapointed.

After reading the reviews on this website, I was eager to try this restaurant. My partner and I ate there on Friday night (May 16, 2008). We were extremely disappointed. We got soup with cellophane noodles. The broth had no taste at all. We saw the fried calamari being delivered to another table and it looked delicious so we ordered it. It just goes to show that looks are deceiving. It was like eating rubber. The chicken wings weren't awful but they weren't good either. For kicks, we also ordered ikura sashimi. It was like a taste of ikura in a huge piece of cucumber. The waitress was nowhere to be found after taking the initial order and we had to flag down other staff to get anyone's attention. We MUST have been at the wrong restaurant.

Dollar for dollar, this is the highest quality Chinese food in the East 90s.

It's incredible: as soon as I hang up my phone, the delivery guy is at my door. Service is crazy fast, prices are average (not too high but not too low either because its not crap food), and the food is good quality. I hate the greasy squirrel-meat Chinese food restaurants this one is not like that at all. Very good. Highly recommended. It's the only Chinese place I order from I'm about to right now! :)
