Welcome to "East is East"
Anybody who's traveled along the ancient silk road will know of the quaint dhabba's (eateries) that have served adventurous travellers through the centuries. Today, these dhabba's have transformed into charming little street vendors that dot the silk road from Mongolia through Tibet, India, Persia, to Istanbul.
At East is East, we capture the vibrant energy of these charming dhabbas that represent the beauty and diverse flavours of this ancient region.
Our west Broadway location has relocated, two blocks east of our old location, to 3035 west Broadway. The new location is licensed; we also have live music seven nights a week, starting at 6:30pm.
Call our Main Street location at 604-565-4401 for more details
