A word from East West Cafe
The restaurant covers a lot of territory, with stops in Thailand, Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Korea and the owners' native Vietnam. What also helps it stand out from the Asian-restaurant crowd is that the sauces and vegetables are always fresh.

East West Cafe reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Not your typical Asian fare.

    Very interesting offerings in this strip mall establishment. We dined here very early Sunday and there were few patrons. Family run complete with kids sleeping in a booth. The food was well prepared and served steamy hot. Veggies were fresh and crisp. Add in option for pork, chicken, beef or Tofu was nice but portions were small and all but lost in the dish. Sauces were excellent and spice level was adjustable to taste when you order.

    I read some prior reviews on this restaurant and was a bit skeptical to try it. We had a promotional offer and decided to try it. I was very pleasantly surprised. The menu has Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese choices and I felt the food was very good - lots of fresh vegetables. My husband ordered a special of grilled salmon. I was really worried about ordering a dish like that in this kind of restaurant (typically it will be overcooked and dry), but it was absolutely delicious. The staff were very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. We are looking forward to going back.

    The food may have been good ... we never found out! We tried this place because of great reviews by other diners but when we tried it on a recent Saturday evening -- rather early by the way -- when the place was almost empty when we entered, it took almost a full half hour after we ordered for our server to finally come over and say, "You're drinks are coming right up!" Another ten to fifteen minutes of waiting finally brought two soup orders -- one of which was incorrect -- to our table, while the third member of our party had to wait another ten minutes for his starter to arrive! Not a very good way to begin! After not getting our main dishes for another 45 mins we asked for a check and left just as ONE entree was delvered! Won't return!

    This was our first time here. We were very surprised by the great service and how much our server knew about the menu. We all tried different items and were impressed how they were done and tasted.The prices were very reasonable and if it was not for open table, we would never have discovered this place. We definitely would return.

    Food was excellent and prices were very reasonable. As good, if not better than many of the high end Asian restaurants we have been to in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. We recommend this restaurant very highly.

    First time at East West was a wonderful experience. We sampled spring rolls, two kinds of soup, and the Pho Xao was fresh, flavorful and a new favorite. Full house on a Saturday night and we see why. Servers were informative and super nice.

    One of the best Vietnamese restaurants in the area. Fresh fish and vegetables, deliciously prepared. Varied menu and extremely attentive staff. Spiced to your liking. Would definitely recommend and will return, sooner than later.
