The owner is almost always there to greet us, remembers us, and contributes well to the community as well as our palates! We have worked in the area for 5-7 years, and always choose Eastern Lights for one of our weekly dining experiences. Their service is superb, friendly, efficient, and memorable in the best way possible. I love most of their lunch specials (all for approx $5-6!!), as well as some of their seafood and beef entrees at supper. Their hot and sour soup has large quantities of scallions, mushrooms, and tofu, the mongolian beef is always moist, all the ""light fried"" chicken lunch meals are delicious, and their fried rice is the best I've had, up and down the east coast, Triangle, let alone in Durham. The single time I was let down in 5 years, realizing they don't devein their shrimp at the last moment, the owner replaced my meal immediately with my choice, at no charge. We are always pleased and happy to be there, and they are always eager to please and serve!
Pros: SERVICE, hot n sour soup, mongolian beef, ALL Food
Cons: only once, and minor: veined shrimp (gritty to eat)
