Nestled amidst the vibrant streets of Auckland, East Restaurant presents a unique culinary journey that weaves together sustainable, health-conscious, and delectable Asian flavours.

Its menu is a tapestry of Asian delights, with vegetarian dishes inspired by the melting pot of culinary traditions from Japan to Sri Lanka. Each dish is a symphony of flavours, showcasing the diversity of East Asian cooking.

From the enticing edamame with black shiso salt to the crispy cups brimming with pineapple, Thai chilli jam, and reduced tamarind, East's bites are a delectable prelude. The small plates offer a delectable array of options, such as gochujang cauliflower sprinkled with spring onion and sesame seeds and the crowd-pleasing sticky jackfruit bun.

Noodle and dumpling dishes offer a myriad of tastes while palate-cleansing salads and vegetables, such as the vibrant som tam, complement signature plates like the Peking jackfruit pancakes.

East's drinks menu is equally impressive, featuring handcrafted cocktails and a thoughtful selection of organic, vegan-friendly wines and New Zealand craft beers to quench your thirst. Every Sunday, East transforms into a vegan "Yum Cha" haven, offering plant-powered versions of beloved dishes.

East's commitment to taste, quality, and sustainability extends beyond its walls, with a takeout service that allows you to savour their culinary creations at home.

In essence, East Restaurant is an unforgettable dining experience that celebrates vegetarian gastronomy and the richness of Asian flavours. It is a testament to the power of sustainable practices and the joy of sharing delicious food.
