WE ARE ONE OF THE OLDEST PAN-ASIAN RESTAURANTS IN THE UNITED STATES, SERVING AN ECLECTIC SAMPLING OF EXOTIC CUISINE FROM SOUTHEAST ASIA & THE PACIFIC RIM, WITH OCCASIONAL DETOURS AROUND THE WORLD SINCE 1967.

OUR MENU IS SMALL, SPECIFICALLY SO, TO REPRESENT A MIX OF THE TIME-HONORED CLASSICS & CULINARY INNOVATIONS OUR PATRONS HAVE GROWN TO LOVE; HOWEVER, EACH EVENING WE EXPERIMENT BY ADDING CHOICE DELICACIES TO OUR COLLECTION, IN MUCH THE WAY A TRAVELER GATHERING MEMENTOS MIGHT DO, IF HE VENTURED TO EXPLORE 'EAST OF SUEZ'.

- - - - - -

From Rudyard Kipling's, Mandalay, during the days of the British Raj, when anywhere east of the Suez Canal was considered, Asia.

Founding Chef Charles Powell selected this name as it reminded him of his father's extensive travels around the world, first as a Naval Officer, and then as a photojournalist and cinematographer for "Fox Movietone News" ~ adventures that Chef Powell often took with him as a child in the 1930's living in China & Japan, and which later led Charlie to the love of his life from the Philippines, Norma Antonio in 1962.

Their international culinary kismet continues to inspire us, as we experiment with the spices & provisions of the Far East.

Today, East of Suez allows us to describe the random path from whence our family & our food originate.

We add to, and change the daily menu frequently, as we explore new recipes & recreate our favorite dishes from cuisines all over the world.
Here is a *sampling* of some of many items we serve on a rotating basis throughout the summer. We apologize if occasionally your selection is unavailable. If you would like to request a specialty item, please give us a call

~ We are Happy to Serve You ~

All our food is prepared to order, from fresh, locally sourced & imported specialty ingredients. We are not an allergen-free establishment, but are happy to work with your dietary needs.
