Having enjoyed their yum cha, we decided to return to Eastern Garden Chinese Restaurant to taste their main dishes. We were delighted that their main dishes were not only delicious but also generous in portion. Complimentary prawn crackers were provided to help sate your hunger while waiting for your dishes to arrive.

The chunks of fish in their Deep Fried Fillet with Creamed Corn Sauce were of a good size, with the crisp batter coating setting off the tender flesh nicely. The sweet corn sauce added a slightly sweet taste and the kernels of corn provided a bit of texture. The sauce was of a consistency that did not mar the coating of the fish.

A dish that we like to order when it is available, Eastern Garden's Crispy Beef was fried to golden brown with meat that was not too chewy. The beef was tossed in plum sauce which helped to bring out their flavour. Tossed with the beef were onions and carrots to add some crunch to the dish.

The restaurant's name for BBC (Broad Beans, Bean Curd and Chinese Chutney) was Pickled Cabbage with Broad Beans & Bean Curd. The broad beans in the dish still had a bite and were complemented well by the bean curd and pickled vegetable. There was also enough sauce to prevent the dish from being too dry. The sauce included some chilli to provide a bit of kick.

Diners who choose to order takeaways during lunchtime on weekdays have the choice of ordering various lunch packs that go for around $9.50. You also get three hours free parking in the Hoyts cinema's underground carpark by validating your parking ticket when paying for your meal.
