We sampled 8 different items and they were all excellent. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Those handling the carts would explain what they had and answer any questions we had. I have eaten in a number of other Dim Sum restaurants in the area and this one just became my favorite. The rest of the week they have a traditional Chinese Menu and you can order Dim Sum but only the steamed ones. My wife and I decided to have a late lunch, and wanted something a bit different.
Different as in location not the type of cuisine. Upon entering we noticed that we were the only dinners.
YIKES , not cool?!? Looking over the menu which was limited, with lots of tiny pictures very unappetizing and unreadable type was smaller. We thought we should just leave.

However, we just couldn't. It would not be very polite. Well, our waitress was very polite and attentive, however that doesn't a good meal make. We were very disappointed and concluded that this was not a place to revisit in the future. Sorry East Coast. I went here because TripAdvisor reviews were generally positive. I'm generally looking for local "finds" that have some flair. This unfortunately wasn't it. This is a very generic chinese "take-out" place, with nothing particularly bad, but nothing all that great, either. This is our go to place for Chinese take-out. What a find! Their food is great.
Everything we have tried, from soups to entrees, has been delicious. Our go to's are wonton soup, General Tso Chicken and salty ribs. I grew up eating great Chinese food in San Francisco. East Coast Asian Bistro is as close to what I remember eating growing up. Check this place out. You will not be disappointed.
Outstanding: Growing Up Asian
Have you ever struggled with something similar? Or have you felt a profound obligation to write your own experiences down? And when you did, how did you know it was a story that needed to be told? I apologise for the sudden flurry of questions, but they have been weighing down on my mind every time I try to write. Apologies for my late reply. You are an outstanding writer. I reckon your letter should be published — not for what it asks about me, but what it says about you, and your life, and your fears and concerns as a writer, which are both different and similar to the ones I had over one and a half decades ago when I was first starting out.
But your voice is entirely your own, so unique and eloquent. Because you spent such thought and time into it, I had to make sure I had time to give you the considered and thoughtful response it deserves. Of course, some of our concerns are similar and still remain so: how do we write about our families? How do we represent ourselves and our culture? How do we ensure we are not tokenised?
But the underlying issue behind your questions is what does it mean to be an Asian writer? A white guy named Arthur Golding even wrote an enthralling book well, enthralling to my 16 year- old self called Memoirs of a Geisha. They were inventive, funny, and shared similar embarrassments about their families not assimilating into the mainstream Western culture.
Unfortunately, there seemed to be no Australian equivalent of such books, with the exception of Looking for Alibrandi about an Italian girl. Maybe I just wanted to rant about my family! But perhaps subconsciously, these questions also played in my mind when I was writing my first book. Of course, you would have felt punished! But I am grateful to your teacher for putting this book on the curriculum, because when my book was launched, my father asked all his friends to come along.
Most of these were people who never went to university, who worked in factories or had small businesses. They bought my book for their kids, which was about two hours of wages back then.
And their kids reluctantly posed for photos with me. And I could feel, if not see, their eyeballs roll. Because on the back of Unpolished Gem , the blurb describes me as a writer and lawyer. Like my friend Randa Abdel-Fattah, who just wanted to first start writing a story about a girl who goes to school and who just happens to be Muslim Egyptian, I wanted to write about a girl growing up in the Western suburbs of Melbourne who just happens to be Chinese-Cambodian.
