We hadn't been back to Eastern Court for about 4 years and it didn't take long to realise why. The staff are the best thing about it, they do try hard although the owner can be a bit overbearing always trying to "upsell" your order. Background music is played to create a pleasant atmosphere, but at times it became quite... More

A friendly service and good atmosphere for families. This restaurant is good for dinner but the Yum Cha is average. The choice of dishes was limited at that time. I have been there for dinner and it was enjoyable. Oysters were big and schuckled. Music and singing was great.

I have not been to this place for years. It used to be a great restaurant but things have slipped. Food average service very slow. For mid week lunch you would expect better.

Dined with friends here for a yumcha. The place was quite empty and subsequently the choice of food was very poor.The quality was lacking and fillings light on. Some dishes were quite greasy. The staff were lovely and courteous but unfortunately the place needs a makeover. I hope it picks up for them.

Not worth the pricey menu. All our dishes had no flavour and the fried rice was the worst we've ever eaten..... It had no flavour and tasted as if it had been frozen Will never go there again

Had lunch here and we did not feel like yum cha. So we orderd from the menu , big mistake . We had combination seafood chow mein and steamed duck . The chow mein was good but steam duck was unedible. I sent it back, but to their credit they did offer a replacement and gave us complementary duck fried... More

The service was very good but the food in our vast experience was very ordinary indeed and over priced. We had 4 dishes as well as fried rice The fried rice... More

Really nice food and great service by the host. We also had fun with the eclectic soundtrack playing in the background. We had Peking duck which wasn't bad at all. The crab noodles was a little dry but the freshness of the crab was the hero of the dish. We also ordered beef, fried calamari, tofu and another vegetable dish... More

Coincidentally the night we dined at Eastern Court Restaurant it was written up in the Age newspaper. The article mentioned the dumplings so we ordered a wide range which we all enjoyed. There was also a serve of Peking duck which was wolfed down. The rest of the meal was typical Suburban Chinese including the banana fritters. Good service.
