We arrived at 16:00, but they only started their dinner menu at 17:00, so we walked around for an hour. We were not disappointed.

I am always happy to find dedicated vegetarian restaurants, and this one was amazing.

Great, quirky decor with very friendly staff. They have a stage for live performances, so I suspect it might get a bit loud later in the evening.

I will definitely recommend this restaurant, and look forward to visiting again in the future.

My husband and I had dinner here during one of our stopover nights in Nelson and LOVED it. We never, ever go for veggie food and honestly just happened to walk by as we were looking for open dinner options during Easter weekend. It was only after cross-checking TripAdvisor (I know, so douchey) and seeing the previous glowing reviews from other meat lovers that I even thought to give East Street a try. I'm so glad we did! I never thought veggie food could be so good!!! I had the mushroom risotto and my husband had the falafel burger. SOOOO good. Our server was lovely, and we ended up having a hilarious chat with him about American vs. NZ politics after our meal. Great service, excellent food, just excellent, excellent, excellent.

First time there since they shifted but food better than ever! We each came out thinking it was still compelling. Lovely outdoor area as well. Food and service outstanding
