If you want authentic Indian, you must visit this restaurant. It's not the restaurant itself, but the food that is really good! I've tried others and none are up to this standard! I've yet to eat badly there.

As I pulled up to the establishment, the cobbled streets and red lights shining from the corner restaurant reminded me something of Amsterdam canals and with a distinct noise from the Shakespeare representing a near by smoke house, the irony was uncanny. I entered the building to a warm welcome from an elderly man in a suit drinking a pint,... More

Happened upon this little gem after a day out in York. Lovely staff and warm atmosphere. Decent food with lots to choose from. The Tandori fish was excellent. A nice relaxed meal at a very reasonable price.

Discovered this restaurant about two months ago and have had good experiences ever since. They have lots of vegetarian options which is great for us, staff are very professional and really go out of their way for you. Food is fantastic. Recommended.

Conveniently situated opposite the old market hall, this was a good find. The staff were welcoming, and although at first sight the menu was typically North Indian, careful examination revealed some nice 'specials'. The Kingfisher beer was good too. I would suggest that presentation of the dishes could be better, but the atmosphere was good and the welcome genuine.

Went to eastern paradise on a recommendation. We were not disappointed, we got a sharing starter which was ample for two. We ordered two coffees which were not what we asked for however that was soon remedied, we ordered two chef recomended dishes and they were amazing, the only downside was they used supermarket chips! Apart from that well worth... More
