Electric East – restaurant review

Nearly six years ago Electric East emerged on New Castel’s market like the phoenix from the ashes. It is something new and refusing, offering dishes from the Asia. This restaurant experiments with different types of cousins and spices. On their website, you can find a variety of dishes from Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. How big their success has become shows the fact that they have managed to land on Michelin guide.

Interior

When you first enter the restaurant, you will see the long room with communal tables and benches. Typical Asian style, with a lot of posters and ornaments. The colors are vivid and bright; it gives away positive vibes. The style doesn’t have a lot of in common with the name, but definitely, can pass as a cheerful office party.

Personnel

PersonnelThe waitresses are very efficient and accommodating. Once we took our places, she brought us a menu and asked for refreshments. I hate when personnel is nagging and standing there while costumers decide. Well, I like to take my time to think. We didn’t have that kind of troubles here. Once we decided what we are going to order, it took them 15 to 20 minutes to prepare. Which is a reasonable time and I was pleasantly surprised because I’ve expected more? What I liked about this place is that everyone is smiling. They have given me positive vibes.

Food

Considering the food, it’s not something that we haven’t seen before, but what’s different is the preparation. I think this is one of the best lunches that I had and I felt sorry to eat because of the decoration and arrangement. You can say, that is Electric. The food is tasty; I have noticed they like to experiment with the spices. The vegetables are so crispy, but still well cooked. The first thought that crossed my mind is how they have made that. I enjoyed my lunch here.

Price

They have a variety of prices, depending on which meal you order. But, there is something for every pocket. Of course, If you want to order something more decadent, like a lobster, you will have to pay more money. But, considering regular meals, this restaurant is very affordable. What I liked about this restaurant is that you don’t have to order the whole three – course lunch, you can just order soup and go away, no one is going to look you funny.
