After a few beers on Saturday, some friends and I went to the Eastern Eye. As it was raining we weren't in the mood to hang again so basically went into the first curry house that looked quite busy. I cannot understand all of these five star reviews. They must have been written by people who a) have never eaten curries before (i.e.American) or b) friends/relations of the owners.
We all agreed that our curries 'weren't bad'. Certainly not up to the Lahore Kebab House or Taayabs standard. I had a Lamb Ureebisi Gatta (something I have never come across before) which, worryingly, was 'hot' hot rather than spicy hot, like it had been heated up in a microwave. It was passable.
What was annoying was the slow service: it took ages for anyone to take our order, and ages before the food came. By which time the restaurant was quite empty. I put £20 into the 'pot', which included the price of a couple of Cobras. The toilets look like they have been flown in from Dacca as well. We probably won't rush back there.
