I haven't been to East Place Chinese Restaurant for many years, so it was a real treat to be in the area today and dropping in to enjoy some of their wonderful dishes. East Place Chinese Restaurant has been around for a long time and with good reason, their food is as authentic as it gets. Everything is made in... More

Whenever I am running errands that lead me to the edge of the Hamilton/Stoney Creek border, I look forward to going to East Place. Tammy is always ready to say hello! Place has many vegetarian choices and they will always cook whatever dish you want the way you want it. My favourite dish is the Spicy Buddha Vegetables. It's an... More

I remember when this place first opened in the 70's...there was hardly anything around, Eastgate Square was just a "shell" yet, the owners decided THIS was the place to offer folks some of the BEST Chinese/Mandarin dishes available, and STILL believe that service,and quality is what keeps customers coming back....much of the restaurant is STILL original, looking up at the...

I've enjoyed dining here a couple of times recently while visiting Hamilton. A friend recommended it, as he dines there regularly. You have a choice of a booth or a table. It's quiet, so you can talk. Our server was a lovely woman; very helpful. The food was tasty. Just the kind of place I like.

We ordered takeout from East Place and we're totally taken back with the taste and portion size of the meal. Our order was for 6 dishes, which we felt might give us 2 meals as it was for only 2 people. Unfortunately, the portions were so small that it just fed us one meal. Because the taste of the meal...

I can see some might like it. The atmosphere is dark and moody ... the way I remember Chinese restaurants in the 50's and 60's. Unfortunately, the food wasn't that good. The egg drop with mushroom soup was "okay". I don't generally add salt to any prepared food but, in this case, I made an exception. The wings were over-breaded... More

It was a while ago but I went here with my friends under the recommendation of one of those friends. It was the worst Chinese food I've ever had. It might be because I'm not used to the extremely westernized Chinese food, but everything just tasted bad. I had a combo there. I can't remember everything that came with it... More
