We ate at The East twice for the Labor Day weekend while we in Great Barrington MA. Our Hotel was walking distance. Our boys loved the food. We ate Sushi, Salmon , and other great dishes. The services and staff was very professional and price was fine. Thanks again for your great food.

While not deserving of a Michelin star, The East is our go-to place for Chinese and Japanese cuisine. Reasonably priced and family friendly, we can get by with 3 entrees for a family of five. Dare I say that the sushi here is better than the Japanese place down the road? The same could be said for their miso. Family... More

Have been going to this restaurant for a few years. In summer the twin lobster special is nice, although it is pricier than the other entrees. They also serve sushi, although it's not their best option. Service is fine and people are very nice.

The East has a long Chinese and Japanese Food menu, so you should be able to find something for everyone. Their specialty is the double lobster tail dinner, which is prepared several different ways. Unfortunately, the last two times we went there, they were out of it; so if you are going for the double lobster tails, I suggest you... More

Service is great. Servings are big -- usually at least 2 servings per portion. You can be in shorts or in formal dress and you'll be fine. Stuff I've had that was really good: Singapore Mei fun, shrimp fried rice, avocado salad, General Two's chicken. Stuff my friends have had that they loved: sushi, avocado rolls.

We've eaten here a few times and had good service and quality food. However, we've ordered food to go a couple times in the past month or so and we won''t be ordering again. The quality just wasn't there. My husband ordered a a dish with scallops, chicken, and shrimp - there was 1 piece of shrimp, maybe a scallop... More

We flipped a coin on where to eat last night & ended up with Chinese down the street from the Fairfield Inn. It was a very quiet night at the restaurant and we had a nice booth along the wall. We had a decent hot & sour soup, vegetable moo shu and Szechuan shrimp - the later both tasty. The... More

Our standard bench mark is the taste, texture, and temperature of Hot and Sour Soup. Here= Top Notch. The surroundings are great, the waitress was very good, and the food generous and delicious. Our only suggestion: kick the 'heat' up a notch on spicy dishes.
