Booked just a few hours before our Saturday evening out at the Eastern Eye. Food was delicious as usual and the host was as friendly as ever. Quite busy but service was efficient without having to wait long

Food turned up cold. Missing items and nobody answered the phone. Was really looking forward to a nice curry but eastern eye have really let themselves down on this occasion. Not the sort of service it used to have.
