Dining here on a recent Monday night with my partner was a fantastic experience as was dining here on two other occasions. There is a seating area on arrival with some nibbles and comfy couches where you look at the menu and place your order, I waited here for my partner to arrive but as my partner was delayed the nice friendly waiter showed me to a table gave me the Wifi password and some popodums, various sauces/spices and a glass of wine which made me feel welcome. The place is well lit and cosy. Our table was overlooking the river and the décor is lovely. (On negative side wall in reception area could do with a bit of paint or wallpaper). The Manager and staff were polite and very friendly. But most important the food was amazing, great flavours and was served quickly. We had the Prawn Jalfrazi for the main course and it had just the right heat. Starters were also lovely. We paid approx €95 for 2 mains, 1 rice and 1 naan bread, starters, coffee and a nice bottle of wine, it was a lovely night out. My partner has been here on many occasions over the years and told me he has never been disappointed with the food and that is a good recommendation from him as he is a very good cook and loves Indian food.

This was the worst Indian food I have ever had, served by the waiter who threw the plates down in front of us and left. The starter was an unidentifiable mix of bits and pieces that looked like scraps from the bottom of the deep fat frier (Apparantly it was Onion Bhaji). The main that follwed was the blandest dish I have ever tasted. I would be bitterly disappointed and ashamed had I managed to cook this at home. The side dish was unedible, potatoes that looked like they had been peeled and left in a dark cupboard for several weeks before being boiled in a tasteless sauce. The lime pickle was the best part of the meal and I assume that was bought in. Easily the worst dining experience I've had.

Easily the worst dining experience I have had in years. To start I ordered the Marinated Jumbo Prawn Butterfly mixed with special herbs and spices, pan fried. Which turned out to be one normal prawn split in two and each half was wrapped in what looked like a crispy pancake. They were at least 90% pancake batter and so greasy I did not even try a taste. I spoke to the waiter and having showed him the mess on my plate he still insisted it was what I had ordered, I disputed that with him. He then offered me a half portion of a main course dish which actually contained jumbo prawns, unfortunately they were overcooked. The lamb main course was greasy and bland and the pilaf rice looked like plain rice with some food colouring dotted about. The garlic naan was barely cooked and was covered in massive chunks of garlic which I had to scrape off. When paying the bill the waiter did not even speak one word to me, this was the first time I have ever left a restaurant without leaving a tip. Terrible food and terrible service is a bad combination, it's little wonder there were only 2 other people in the restaurant at the time.

Dining here on a recent Friday night was a fantastic experience. I really loved the atmosphere. There is a seating area on arrival with some nibbles and comfy couches where you look at the menu and place your order. The place is well lit and cosy. Our table was overlooking the river and was fantastic. There was a guy playing the guitar and singing and he was excellent. Beautiful music but not overpowering - we were still able to have a good chat. The staff were very polite and friendly. The food was nice. Not the best Indian food I've ever had, but it was good. We paid approx €40 for 2 mains, 1 rice and 1 naan bread. Not the cheapest, but it was a lovely night out and felt like good value.

On reading other reviews were a bit apprehensive in going but looked the best Indian around. We arrived without a booking but were seated after 10 mins. Was pleasantly surprised on arrival, picture doesn’t do it justice, the service was clinical, atmosphere was good a guy playing guitar nice background music. But most important the food was amazing great flavours and was served quickly. Got chicken chilli massalla (not for girls) HOT....

Visited the Eastern Tandoori for a pre-Opera House dinner given it's convenient location. Although the restaurant itself is a little dated, in the past i have always found this to be a fairly safe bet. Unfortunately this was not my experience on this occassion. The food was quite frankly inedible. I ate with 4 other people and all 5 of us had various chicken main courses. The chicken on each of our plates wasn’t great. We brought this to the waiter's attention to told that 'oh yes lots of people have complained about the chicken all week'. He said nothing more, just stared at us. My friend then went on to say 'should we just not eat it' and he just smiled, said nothing and walked off. No apology, nothing. Needless to say we ate some of the sauce, no chicken and decided it would be best to skip deserts etc for fear of what would be served. I would certainly never go back here as the food and service were attrocious. I was so hungry leaving that i had to stock up on treats in the Opera House to prevent my stomach from grumbling all through the show. My advice, avoid if you don't want to get bad chicken and all that goes with it :-(

Paid a return visit, having been here whilst on a visit to Cork at the same time last year. The restaurant was busy, and the meal was up to the same standard as on the previous occasion. We shared a tasty and plentiful platter for two for starters, and my main meal was delicious and satisfying. Surroundings are relaxing and it's not a cheap place to eat, but the food and service are good.

Had a very enjoyable evening here. The meal was delicious and service was very good. Two negative points though. On each table there’s a set of three little stainless steel dipping dishes. Two of the three dishes on our table were minus the handle in the lid. This really should be attended to as it doesn’t look good because there is a hole in the lid where the handle had been attached and it’s quite obvious that the handle has been broken off. The second thing relates to paying the bill. When the waiter came to the table, I was asked out loud if a gratuity was to be added to the VISA card. This was within earshot of other diners and was not a nice thing to do. I told the waiter I wouldn’t be doing so and he didn’t seem too pleased about it. If a tip is warranted, I will leave one on the table, but I never put a tip on my credit card. A situation like this could cause serious embarrassment to some diners, and possibly even make them feel obliged to put a tip on their card. It’s a practice that has crept into restaurants here in the past few years and I do not like it.

Went here with my husband for an early dinner after some shopping. We got the €50 (3course meal for two) set menu. There is a good choice for starters and mains with tea/coffee and icecream to finish, included in the €50 is a bottle of wine - making this the best value meal I've had in a long time. Other options include 4 beers or 2 beers + 2 glasses of wine.They have a full bar also so great for parties etc.

Took my nephew for his first Indian outing on fri evening around 6pm - the restaurant was quiet.. We were welcomed and given an extensive menu to choose from with ample time. We decided to go for the set menu @ €28 odd each. We got a lovely table over looking the river and night traffic. Complimentary popodum served with various sauce/spices. Our mixed starter was plentiful, all chicken dishes mouth watering and spicey. I wasn't so keen on the lamb pattie but himself loved it. Then we were given our plates with rice, followed by Chicken dish, lamb dish and vegetable curry. We both loved the chicken 10/10.. Lamb 7/10 unfortunately we didn't like the curry..we finished off with kuli (indian icecream) which was delightful and tea. Overall lovely, enjoyable - we would recommend.
