Pros: Popular, great tourist trap

This is one of the best restaurants in Chinatown or anywhere else. The food is always fresh. Helpful friendly waiters. It can be very busy at lunch time but always a lot of tables. Always full of families and tourists.

The last reviewer who said blah blah blah mentioned you wouldn't be happy with great eastern if you are looking for Mandarin or Hunan. Well, guess what? This is neither of those. It's Cantonese, and the flavors in Cantonese are much

Pros: Excellent seafood and Dim Sum

I had their shark soup and shrimp balls during their dim sum and it was good. It's a definite must! My other friends got the sweet and sour pork with rice and it was reasonably priced. Lots of chinese people come here for lunch and dinner so it's a place not to be missed as long as you can find this place.

Their dim sum is excellent and a much better value than Yank Sing. We always order way more than we can really eat because most everything is delicious.

Service is ok.

This is the best cantonese in the City. It's a bit pricey but it's worth it. Stick with seafood dishes and you'll do ok.

This restuarant beats any place for quickness. I ordered and 7 minutes later it came out. Plus, for a Chinese Restaurant the service was pretty good. I requested my fish to be cooked and certain way and they accomodated me happily. This is

If there's one place in Chinatown that seafood lovers should check out, it's Great Eastern. Be prepared for a very authentic Hong Kong style menu, with some exotic dishes, like abalone and shark. For those who are less experimental, they
