East is East is a quaint, tiny restaurant on West Broadway near Blenheim. Blink and you’ll miss it. I almost did. A good friend raved to me about this place some months ago. He described the food as Middle-Eastern. Having sampled a dinner plate of organic lamb kebab, lentil soup, basmati rice, plain roti and chicken masala, I’d pull back the category further and say it’s a gentle blending of a few Eastern influences. Say, they were really on to something when they named their restaurant!
