East Is East - True Cultural Dining in Vancouver

I had heard many great things about East Is East before but I had never actually ventured out to try it. The food is a fusion of Indian and Afghani cuisine. The restaurant's vibe is very laid back and the decor very unique (with low wooden tables, banquets, and tapestries on the walls). We ordered the "Feast" for two (below) - a combination of salad, appetizer, and two main dishes. The "Feast" is refillable as many times as you want and at a price of $19 per person it is very reasonable. My favourites were the Lamb Kebab and the Alu Gobi. The Himalayan High milkshake was excellent too - a mixture of mango, pistachio, rosewater and cardamom! Yum!






Once we were done with our individual platters we decided to give desert a try. We ended up ordering the Easter Ecstasy (below) - very tasty!








To add to an already great dinner we were also entertained by a belly dancer performer! 

Overall, I would recommend giving East Is East a try as there is nothing else like it in Vancouver... You will feel like you have gone on an exotic holiday :)
