About East Meets West

For Vietnamese cuisine that never compromises on flavour, East Meets West exceeds all expectations. This popular Brunswick Street restaurant features fresh dishes that taste as authentic as they do in Asia, with many house specialities to boot. Their seafood items are especially popular, and locals have been raving about the restaurant’s whole-fish dishes with seasonings like salt and pepper, tamarind sauce, and light soy sauce. Not a fan of meat or fish? Take one of the delicious vegetarian options at East Meets West like stir-fried veggies in sambal sauce, smoked eggplant with vinegar in hot pot, and tofu and vegetables in a creamy coconut sauce. Located just a few steps from several public transportation possibilities, East Meets West is an easy choice for great Asian food that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Our host was excellent - welcoming and helpful. The restaurant a bit winter cool. The food excellent. Not many diners so conversation was easy. Nice to find a BYO these days.

This was unlike most Vietnamese meals we're used to in Adelaide - and not in a good way. We wanted some salad or greens to go with the meat meals but the vegetables in mushroom sauce was frankly bizarre. Vegies don't really need to be sizzled nor cooked in a creamy pub gravy like sauce. The meats were also overcooked and the prawns were old and smelled of ammonia. We didn't really appreciate being encouraged to order more food as it was totally unnecessary. The drinks were a bargain is the one positive.
