A sure-fire hit for lunch with fresh dim sum. Excellent soup dumplings.
Attach of the killer egg rolls!. Service was good, although the food did a number to my stomach! - not the best Chinese I've had. I wouldnt recommend it.
China without airfare expense. We recently enjoyed the Great Eastern Restaurant--in fact, it was a return visit after more than 25 years and the food was still very good. It was like being able to go to China without the airfare expense and jet-lag. The starters were delicious and the lobster an unexpected surprise. Even the jello-like pudding with a hint of ginger was a taste worth remembering. Service was excellent!
Authentic Chinese Food. If there's one place in Chinatown that seafood lovers should check out, it's Great Eastern. Be prepared for a very authentic Hong Kong style menu, with some exotic dishes, like abalone and shark. For those who are less experimental, they also offer more "traditional" Chinese fare. The best way to experience Great Eastern? Bring a huge group, order a large variety of dishes and share away. With two floors, this place is designed for large parties. My favorite time to go? When it's crab season. They prepare it every imaginable way-- all of it good.
