Great Eastern Dining Room

However many times I go here, it never disappoints. The dim sum are absolutely fantastic, I'd particularly recommend the ribs, the chilli salt squid and the dumplings. The sashimi is top notch and the vegetable tempura is lovely and crisp. I'm invariably a little full when it gets round to main courses but this week I had the soft shell crab salad with pomegranate. This was superb, very generous with the crab. My companions all had the pad thai which also went down very well. The atmosphere is great, dim lighting, friendly service, very relaxed feel with the buzz of the bar in the background. All round a wonderful dining experience, at a generally pretty reasonable price.

Cay Tre

You really can't fault this place. The food is unbelievably good - particularly the fish - and the bill is very easy on the pocket. I've always found the staff to be very friendly and efficient. Be warned though, not exactly a first date venue as the fluorescent lighting is not all that flattering.

Eat East

Fantastic Chinese restaurant very near to Spitalfields Market. Came across it in the Time Out Cheap Eats book (which raved about it) and thought I'd give it a go. A large group of us went and we were all very impressed with the great range of dishes (I agree the mongolian lamb was amazing), the friendly but not over-bearing service and the extremely reasonable bill. This place should be a lot busier, I hope its profile raises a bit higher. I'll definitely be going back and have already recommended it to friends in the area.
