I suggest that you try their "Orange Chicken". It is original and the best style of chicken that I have ever tasted. I am hooked.

Been going there for 30 years, since it was a coffee shop. Not necessarily real chinese food, but the best Canadian Chinese food in Canada (even beats T.O.). Whoever is writing these bad reviews must own the Jade Garden or other competitor as I order take out at least 3 x per month. Always great.

Nothing to tell! This was the WORST chinese food I've ever had. Chicken balls had this weird smell and pork ribs was NOT pork ribs. it was like small bone piece with no meat. I totally agree with the person who wrote the last review. I'm sure the rest of review above was written by its owner!

I am from BC and recently moved to the Niagara Region. This restaurant was recommended by friends from out West that have visited on their vacations. Since i heard so much about it, I had to try it out for myself and I must say that it is everything that I heard it would be and more. The food was out of this world and the atmosphere was friendly and helpful. The staff seemed to be proud of the establishment and they had their own favorite dishes that they were more than happy to recommend. I make sure that everytime I talk to friends back in BC that I mention the food that I had at Far East. I know it makes them a little jealous and perhaps it'll get them to come out for a visit soon. I give this restaurant an overall mark of 10.

I used to work at the Far East as a dishwasher, I've had some of the food they make, mainly chicken fried rice or a hamburger and I've seen the chefs make the food. Very good food and very skilled chefs. Some students at a local school claimed the chefs spit in the food, I'd like to disspell that rumour. I have seen the chefs first hand and they DO NOT spit in the food. It is a good quality chinese restaurant with good food and good people to work for.

I recomand HIGHTLY this Restaurant. I know the Owner HENRY for over 30 years and always go and eat our Cheneese Foods There. His cooking is above excellence. Staff very friendly and above excellence servive. I HENRY continue the good work, no one like you in the kitchen and I am from the North and will return some day very soon. I say I to Amnd.

Years ago it was very good. Now it has its bad days. I like to order thier fish and chips as the batter is lvery light. I love their coleslaw with the oriental twist. I squeezed the ketchup on to my plate and quickly dip a fry in , the yuck the ketchup was rancide. I looked down at my plate it was foamy. the waitress brought me a new ketchup and the same thing. They wash and refill their bottles, but I dont think this practice should be allowed in any restaurant. I have ordered take out chinese and have gotten sick from it. I question their cleanliness and food storage practices. The place is also vey dated, for the amount of customers they have they could renovate. Also the owners are always sitting behind the cash and dont help out if they are short handed. They wont let staff take the money, they guard the till. You think It would be nice to trust your employees and show them some respect, especially since some of them have been there for years. I wouldnt want to work there.

Very Generous Servings, Food is prepared to order,IE:- If you want chicken fried rice without the chicken, just ask, They do not have large pans of food pre cooked and just waiting to be scooped out, Their fish and chips are lightly battered, and not to greasy, Their prices are very reasonable, Great take out service.

Great! Always great. I have lived here my whole life, and everyone I know always orders far east.
Highly recommend.

the food isn't horrible, but it's not stellar. of course, i'm from chicago so i'm spoiled and have had some out of this world asian cuisine. that being said, for being niagara falls, it's not bad. the house chicken and spring rolls are pretty good.

I have been a local customer since I was 8 yrs of age and all I wanted to say is Thank You for the Great food(especially the Orange Beef/Chicken)As well as keeping it a Family Owned business and not a cooperate "Flash in a Pan"like most places in "Las Niagara".

Love it! My husband and I get take out often. Very good. Mandarin is down the street, and we'd rather drive to far east or pay the delivery. Soooo good!

The Far East was recommended by the front desk as a place where locals eat. I have traveled across Canada and must say that this is the best Chinese food I have had
The House Special Chicken was worth the trip to Niagara Falls and I can't wait to visit again!
The French speaking waitress was friendly and helpful.

We were visiting Niagara Falls from out of town and found this restaurant on the Internet. After having dinner there, I must conclude that the ratings were either by the owner or by people who know nothing about Chinese food. (it is most likely by the owner)
The food at this restaurant is horrible!!! Don't waste your money there!!! Any fastfood joint is 10 times better!!!
