East Restaurant in Wells, Maine Review

If asked for a typical dinner in Maine one would expect lobster, clams and a bonfire on the beach but we are adventurous foodies and, so, we are invited to the hottest reservation in these parts. What else could one do in Maine but visit a temple of massive Asian cuisine? Our New York neighbors have no idea.

Granite, jade and pagoda with a 45 degree incline but, as usual, we had the best parking spot.

Pork, lo mein, chicken fingers, crab rangoon, fried rice, eggroll and sesame chicken.

If a spotlessly clean feast of a Chinese Food Buffet, all you can eat, proper service, including tea, at a very reasonable price is to your liking then contact us. This is the best-kept secret in New England.

Shrimp, garlic beans and egg foo yong.

Chow mein, broccoli and beef, fried fish, squid chicken.

Ratings: crab rangoon, best we ever had, crispy, clean wonton and filled. Fried fish was fresh halibut in a buttery, amazing sauce. The tempura vegetables were great, light with panko bread and barely dipped in oil.

TBF advises to make reservations and be on time if one wants a comfortable seat. The place fills up quickly!
