Should be above the Blue Mango!

We were in Brighton for 2 weeks, and tried as many Indian restaurants as we could. This was by far the best. The chutneys were fresh, the chicken tikkas were tasty (not coloured), they had a couple of good king prawn dishes, and they even had a crab dish on the menu. Well done!

I have eaten here many times. The food is always fantastic and the staff are wonderful. My only negative comment is that the decor is tired and really needs an overhaul. Best Indian food in England that I have had.

This restaurant never fails to deliver beautiful,fragrant,freshly cooked Southern indian cuisine. This service is also excellent and the atmosphere very friendly. I cannot recommend The Eastern Eye highly enough.

Many friends have praised the food here, I joined a group of friends for a Sunday lunch - it had a short menu, and the food seemed as if someone had just turned up to warm up the leftovers form the previous days menu. I am sure they probably didn't have the Tandoori oven on - and I am sure... More

I love authentic south Indian food and having travelled in India countless times, I can easily be disappointed - but I am so delighted this restaurant is in my home city. Service used to be slow when it was busy but the people running it took on board comments on here and it has improved vastly. The food is quite... More

Really great find on London road. Been there well before the gentrification of the area. The smell of welcoming spices and oils when you walk thru the door assures you you have found a genuine Indian. Masala dosa, biriyani and fish curries are excellent. Close your eyes and you could be in India. Enjoy!

From the eye catching Eastern Eye signage on the outside, this Indian restaurant offers exceptionally tasty food on the inside, some distance from the normal run of the mill Indian fayre you might be used to I suspect. Along with inexpensively priced beer and wine this eatery is now on my return visit list. Lots of room inside along with... More

It was packed out on a Friday night (we should have booked ahead) so we had to settle for a takeaway ... which involved waiting for over an hour. But it was worth it! There were 8 of us so we had ordered a variety of lamb, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes which were uniformly excellent. Particularly appreciated were the... More
