We've been going to the East India on an occasional but regular basis ever since we met over twenty years ago, and have never been disappointed. Food, service, atmosphere and general presentation have always impressed us. Most recently we were there a couple of weeks ago, and had the usual, and now expected, high quality experience; the more so as they're now doing a very good value package for two, including starters, main courses and accompaniments. Unfortunately there weren't many other folk there, which is a real shame. I know it's a bit out of the city centre and doesn't have a prominent facade, but this place is worth checking out. We'll certainly be back.

I have eaten at this Indian for almost a year and it has always been amazing but it has recently (in the past two weeks) come under new management/ownership. I ordered a takeaway, it took well over an hour to arrive, the rice was over cooked, the curries were watery, the peshwari naans were disgusting, the chicken tikka meat was not tikka (it tasted as though it had come out of a can) and the "lamb" was very suspiciously closer to mooing rather than baaing! It's a shame that it has changed hands because this really was a top notch restaurant sadly however it was an utter disappointment and I have been left hungry and out of pocket by £35. Do not go.

Decided to go here for a curry after a friend recommended it. It was great! The inside is like a hidden treasure. The vibe is kind of cosy and romantic with a touch of old fashioned class.
The food was good and the staff were really nice. I had a chicken tikka masala and my boyfriend had a chicken bhuna they were both tasty and the nan was nice and garlicky!
Will defo be going back.

We waited ages to order despite the restaurant being practically empty. But the increasingly loud drilling noises kept us entertained. The poppadoms were a bit stale. The starters were average but, with hindsight turned out to be one of the best bits. The rice arrived well after the main dishes were brought to the table (and after we'd asked for it again). The Lamb Jaipuri was really nice, tender meat and lots of flavour. But the Chicken Jalfrezi and Ceylonese Korma were shocking - the worst meals we've ever been served with in a restaurant - lukewarm, bland and actually tasting 'off'. When asked whether we were enjoying our meal, we were politely truthful. Having been asked to name other places where I had eaten Jalfrezis, we were offered an alternative, which we declined. The red wine was watery and had a stale taste. We were not charged for the unsatisfactory main courses. We will not be going back. Ever.
