Eastern Bay

2055 Riverside Dr., Columbus OH 43221 (614) 487-1198

Chinese dining used to be an event. So, it’s refreshing to have a place like Eastern Bay in this era of all-you-care-to-eat buffet-style Chinese food. Their dishes are authentic, old-school Chinese-American, freshly prepared and served family style. The waiter wears a bow tie and refills the hot tea and iced water as fast as you can drink it, which may just seem like a minor detail, but, if you get the Hot and Spicy Szechwan Beef ($8.45), which is literally peppered with fresh jalapenos, you’ll be drinking it pretty fast.
