Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Delicious food, service was lovely and attentive. Definitely will be going back in the future. Found it to be quite reasonable considering how many dishes my partner and I ordered.

It was my brother’s birthday and we were visiting our granddaughters on Isle of Wight. We stayed at The Wight who offered a discount at the Eastern Eye and in line booking was easy. It was around a 5 minute walk, from the hotel, the...staff were great and polite, the food was wonderful and lots of different dishes. My brother had one of the best birthdays ever. Would certainly recommend this resturant for the food and excellent staff service.More

Called in tonight after a long day. We ordered a set meal for 2 to takeaway. The service was lovely and they changed one of the mains for us. We sat and had a beer whilst we waited and the atmosphere was very nice. All...the food dishes were lovely and plentiful. Would recommend for either takeaway or dining.

Whilst on holiday in Sandown we found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. One of deciding factors on choosing this place, apart from the great reviews, was that the owner responded to all reviews which showed me he had a passion for what he did. Due to...the weather being bad we ordered a takeaway and went to collect it ourselves. We met the owner in the restaurant who was very friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding so fresh and tasty. We ordered a mixture of dishes which were all delicious so i couldn't choose my favourite. One of the best indian takeaways we have had for a very long time. Thank you and keep up the good work guys.More
