Nesled in Toorak Gardens, the aptly named Eastern Garden is a neighbourhood Chinese restaurant that constantly has diners coming back for more. Constantly full of hungry diners, Eastern Garden offers an assortment of Yum Cha classics and some lesser known specialities like the salted egg custard buns and salt and pepper bean curd.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Every neighbourhood has its local Chinese restaurant haunt. Menus run the gauntlet of predictabilities – beef and black bean sauce for mum and dad; chicken and cashew nuts for the kids; salt and pepper squid for addicts. Normally, to sate those cravings, a trip to Chinatown is required because seriously authentic Chinese food is rarely found in the “burbs”. Wrong – the lucky folks of Toorak Gardens have it on their doorstep. While Eastern Garden restaurant flaunts all the classics, they are in the minority of a menu that, while beautifully presented, is overshadowed by more unusual dishes.

If the seafood hotpot with sea cucumber and stewed shark lips seems a bit adventurous, the salt and pepper soft shell crab, flounder or whitebait will see you salivating. Stir-fried white radish cake in XO sauce and green beans with minced pork and salted olives has a bit of kick to it but can be soothed by the rather milder flavours of the lamb pancakes or abalone and scallops in pumpkin. If the salt and pepper deep-fried bean curd, and chicken and salted fish fried rice are anything like that served in sister restaurant BBQ City you’d be wise to summon some quick smart. Unlike its cheap and cheerful city counterpart, Eastern Garden is a large 120-seater set for a dining experience. Cherry-red timber cabinets with antique trinkets add an elegant touch. To one corner are tanks of coveted crustaceans should you wish to add a further smattering of decadence to your evening.

Eastern Garden - User Reviews

Brodie:

Normally go into Gouger Street for yum cha but thought we would avoid the city & try Eastern Gardens - best thing about it was the carparking at the back. Service was initially ordinary but went downhill quickly, we had to keep flagging down the trolleys to be served anything at all. It was my first experience of a yum cha house which ceases to bring fresh food out after 12.30pm during lunch hour. Plus there was absolutely no variety in yum cha dishes. Very, very disappointing but at least it had carparking :)review  11/02/2012

Boney:

Have been going to Eastern Garden for 7 years, mostly take away. I ordered my usual, Sweet & sour pork, Spring rolls, special fried rice. The food came out just as I arrived, so 3 minutes away and back home. Well, I have never experienced bones in this dish in my life, the rice was tasteless, spring rolls not up to usual standard, but coming back to bones in the S & S dish, I was very annoyed it was soggy.review  06/02/2012
