Best Asian Food in Stockholm at East


The second you walk into East on Stureplan 13, you are instantly captivated by the cultural and spacious vibe. East outstanding location is in Stockholm’s premium area, surrounded by liveliness and class. Although the prices at East are somewhat high, the service, food, and presentation all make up for it. All the food we ordered and the food around us all looked of impeccable quality which was presented in an aesthetic way.

As an appetizer, we ordered the chicken dumplings. The presentation was appealing, but the taste was even better. The steamed dumplings were coated in a thin but tasteful dough with juicy chicken inside, along with noodles and some greens. The dish came along with a sweet “man du dip” which enhanced the dumplings flavor. They cost a total of 134kr which is pricey, but worth it.

The next dish we ordered was a “shrimp tempura 2” which was a maki roll containing tempura prawns, tamago, avocado, green asparagus, tobiko, chives, and an East sweet sauce to top it all off. Between the rice, shrimp, and asparagus, the dish was a perfect balance of crunchy and soft. It was presented in a pleasant way, but the flavor of both the roll and the sauce was outstanding. I would highly recommend this meal, which you can either get for a price of 120 kr/5 pieces or 199kr/10 pieces.

The next dish we got was the salmon roll. Once again, this was an amazing maki roll with flavors of all kinds with every bite. You could tell this was a very high-end meal simply based on the flavor and quality. This maki roll contained blackened salmon, avocado, pickled red onions, mayonnaise, green pea sprouts, and green asparagus, topped with seared salmon. I ordered a fresh gomawakame salad on the side as well. Its price was 118kr/5 pieces or 196kr/10 pieces.

East is a high-end, classy restaurant which I would highly recommend. The service was noticeably good, as our waiter was immediately there to fill up our drinks, and checked if we enjoyed the food. He was attentive and paid a moderate amount of attention to us. The food was outstanding, satisfying both my family and the ones surrounding us. The restaurant is not necessarily a family environment (for children 7 or younger) but they had food—with reasonable portions— to feed young children as they are welcomed. I also recommend you book a table since they can get pretty busy after 6:00 pm.
