welcome to east

We believe in more sustainable, health-conscious eating without sacrificing taste. Delicious modern Asian flavours, plant-focused dining. Our chefs, representing culinary talent from Japan, Hong Kong, China, Thailand, India and Sri Lanka, take inspiration from the near and far East - from fresh holy basil found in Thai recipes, Sichuan peppers in China, to shiso leaf commonly found in east Asia kitchens - to present an innovative and flavourful vegetarian menu of bites, small plates and larger dishes all designed to share. Our drinks menu features organic and vegan friendly wines, bespoke cocktails and sustainable New Zealand craft beer. Treat yourself to lunch, dinner or drinks at East. 

Enjoy.
