This is a post regarding John N's review left on 1 March 2013.
I am really sorry you had an awful experience of a drunk waiter in a "halal" restaurant. As far as I know, the waiters in the eastern eye are forbidden by their religion to drink. As in the waiters’ religion it is considered a sin to drink or “haram”. Most of the waiters in Eastern Eye have grown up here in England and are getting their qualifications in Bath University. It is quite surprising that you think these waiters doing their university degrees are not being able to speak English. Hmm… I think maybe you should stop judging people by their colour of skin. You said "what a shame we were England?" and at the same time refer to the waiter speak. As we all know the third person in English gets an s at the end of the conjugated verb. There are quite a few more grammatical and spelling mistakes, nevertheless you think you can judge people’s English. I am not going to pick on each of your, mistakes because I am just a waiter. I would recommend you, however, to be a bit more careful in your judgements. Maybe you went to another restaurant altogether, the description you give certainly does not fit the “Eastern Eye”.

“Superb Restaurant in Bath”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

My wife and I recently visited Bath and were looking for a restaurant to eat at on a Friday night, came across the Eastern Eye. Strange entrance above some shops but well worth it. Superb decor in the restaurant, it was a ballroom once. We had not booked but they found us a table,
The sevice was very attentive, food superb, we visit many Indian restaurants around the country, the price was reasonable for a quality place. All round I would thoroughly recommend the Eastern Eye, all the staff are very polite.

Excellent service. Fantastic food. Is popular so you might have to book at the busiest times but it is certainly worth it

“Fabulous Indian, amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Ate here on my visit to Bath earlier this month, and what a fantastic meal it was. Firstly, the room itself was much grander and more beautiful than we'd expected. Only passed it by chance whilst we were shopping. The food itself was great, with a selection of dishes we'd never heard of before. Good service and reasonable prices, especially for the quality of food and venue. Highly recommended.

“Busy Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Excellent food, efficient service but rather rushed on a Saturday evening. Maybe best to visit midweek.
