This Indian Resturant is one of the best in Plymouth I would say....although be warned, the food, when it says it is hot IT IS HOT!!
History of the resturant - it is the oldest Indian resturant in Plymouth, with a history of 21 years! It caters for Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine.
Opening times -
Sunday to Thursday 6pm - 12pm
Friday and Saturday 6pm - 2am
Lunchtime: bookings only
Location - The Eastern Eye resturant is situated along one of the main roads nearby the famous Barbican. In terms of parking you would need to park in the nearby car parks dotted around the city centre and walk there. If you are parking and asking someone for directions I would say that you are looking for Notte Street and looking for the entrance of the Barbican, as it is just across the road from here. You can easily walk past this place, so be careful you don't and keep your eyes peeled. The outside of the resturant looking in, it looks cosy and warm looking.
Prices - I would say as an average - the prices are pretty good, and about average. You can get a chicken tikka for £4.95, and startes are about £3.50.When I come here I quite like the Green Bean Sasthra £12.95 which is Beef in spinach & green peas in a spicy fairly hot sauce. This is very hot, and I would say the majority of the dishes are a little more hotter than other places. My advice is, if you don't like it too hot emphasis this when ordering, to ensure you don't waste your money! Drinks are about average, with a large lemonade at £1.95 and bottled beer about £2.70 a bottle.
Overall Opinion of the place - The food itself is lovely, it is on the hot side, but once you tell the staff your food preferences, i.e. not too hot, they are most helpful, and will help you decide what might suit you if you are not sure what some of the dishes are. When you first go into the place, there are two tables opposite the bar - these are used if you are waiting for a table, and booking is advisable for a friday or saturday night. Once you are shown your table, I found it was quite private in your own booth, but there were some tables in the middle of the room as well. The noise level was raised alittle, because the place was small, but that didn't detract from the nice food and great atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the toilets were clean and tidy.
Go here if you.....love indian food, want a great atmosphere, and reasonably priced food.
Don't go here if you....need wheelchair acess - as it is not suitable. Don't go here either if you do not get on well with indian food.
Summary: Great food, lovely atmopshere
