Such a bit fan of Pizza east. Great food. Great vibe. Really good place for some basic grub.

I had high hopes for this place. The location is great, right on Shoreditch High Street and in the very cool Tea Building. No wonder it is always so busy. One would hope that the food will live up to the location, but I was quite disappointed. Pizza is made to order with a variety of toppings and at a reasonable price. However, the crust is not very thin and on the doughy side. I had a hard time cutting it with my knife. I resorted to scrapping the toppings off and left the crust behind. I also had the burrata, aubergine and tomato starter. I am a big fan of burrata cheese and I don't think you need to do much to it, just some olive oil and salt to let the fresh flavor shine through, but this starter didn't managed to do that. There are a lot of good restaurants in Shoreditch, so I don't think I will be coming back any time soon.

I went to Pizza East as part of a birthday dinner a few weeks back, and while it's a super neat space with a really cool atmosphere, for the most part I found it to be overhyped and underwhelming. It's not that anything was particularly bad about my experience, but nothing blew me away, and certainly nothing demanded the large crowd of people who were also dining there, hence the two stars.

With my group of friends, we ordered appetizers, pizzas and dessert, as well as several bottles of wine. We certainly enjoyed our company, but unfortunately it came with quite a price tag, maybe not out of line with nice restaurants in Soho, but definitely on the higher end for the Shoreditch area. Additionally, the service was pretty spotty, except at the end where we were hurried out of the restaurant to make room for another party (which it's always nice to be forewarned about).

The location is pretty great though, right on the corner of Shoreditch High Street. The atmosphere, as I mentioned, is really cool, industrial and funky and certainly worthy of a cool meal. Unfortunately, I was also kind of underwhelmed by my pizza, which was kind of Roman-style but with a weird variety of options for toppings and generally not as tasty as I prefer.

All in all, it's a nice place, I'm glad I had a great time with friends there, but its's not quite enough to draw me back. Plenty of other new and/or better places in the area to enjoy.

This is what pizza should be like everywhere. This is a very popular spot but it has plenty of tables. I have not had a bad meal here and I am longing for another one as I write this. I would highly recommend trying the Spicy sausage, mozzarella & tenderstem broccoli. Try this place

Fairly good pizzas but a bit off the beaten track in a converted factory in what is supposed to be one of the up and coming parts of London

For the edgy-paletted. You might catch 1D grabbing a pepperoni if you're lucky.

The Tea Building is a must see in London especially if you're into the digital world. The best talents are around there and the box park next door is great to treat yourself. It's one of best pizzas in town for sure, the appetisers are also great. Book in advance!

Despite having a rather uninspired name, this pizza chain serves excellent, interesting pizza and snacks and is a fun place for a casual dinner with friends.

I really like the space that Pizza East is in, it makes me feel like I’m in NYC. The spacing between tables is more reasonable than in most London restaurants and I like the casual sit at the bar option.

The food was great, lots of Pizza options. I thought the pizza very good, loved the base, and though my salad tasted like the salt shaker was emptied into it, the management was over at my table in minutes rectifying the situation and making me feel at ease about saying something. How problems are dealt with is a good showing of the quality of a restaurant. Pizza East handled things very well.

OM NOM NOM. Pizza East has great pizza. Great value for money too. I had the chicken and broccoli and I can honestly say I've not had better anywhere else in London. Really friendly staff too!

Would you like to try the best pizza in east London, hands down?

Then get your butt to pizza east. It's worth the wait, trust me.

Such a win - we had the burrata bruschetta (pictured), the lasagne, and pizza, and each item was fantastic. Pizza crust was thin and just chewy enough. Only caveat - this place is happening and can get pretty loud.

Consistently excellent pizza, salads, charcuterie if you're into that. I like the space. Definitely one of my go-to places in East London. Combine it with a film at Richmix.

Now, I don't even really like pizza, but if I'm going to eat it, I'd better eat the best. I normally leave the crusts too, but they must sprinkle it with addictive salt content or something because I just want to eat the whole damn thing. They also do non-pizza sharing plates so it's one of those fun free-for all places. Make sure you book though as the line can be hell-ish.
