Description: We would love to welcome you to our family-run restaurant and cafe and shisha garden conveniently located in the heart of Salisbury, just down the road from the rail station. Our mainly Turkish menu has something to suit everyone - with our new fast lunch-time deal which can have a taste of various countries foods for you to sample at your leisure to more refined a-la-carte dining with an Ottoman menu which is similar to modern-day Moroccan and Lebanese cuisines in spicing and the inclusion of dried fruits and nuts in many of the dishes. We wanted to create an opulent environment similar to the hotels and palaces of the Middle-East, but without the steep price-tag. For this reason you will find, despite the rich decor, an informal eating space that welcomes all age groups and caters for most tastes. You can just pop in and have a piece of baklava (rich, sticky pastry with walnuts) or enjoy the full experience with live belly dancing and traditional music (most Fridays and Saturdays). Our large Shisha Garden is open all year and we even have Bedouin tents for you to come and get away from it all in. We are unique and completely new concept in the dining-out experience - we will do all we can to make the best of your time with us - We are EASTERN CHILLOUT - enjoy the ride!

Given the high ratings (best place to eat in Salisbury, not less) I was a bit disappointed with this restaurant. The food was OK but only OK. Service was quite slow and most of the evening was dedicated to a belly dancer jumping around the tables accompanied by very load music. Maybe some people's idea of a good time but made conversation difficult and frankly not everyone wants to look at a dancing lady 2 feet from their table. Finally, when we came to pay we were told card machine wasn't working so I had to sprint out to nearest cash-point (at least I escaped the belly dancing for a while). Maybe I'm just getting old.....

This is one of those places that utterly beggars belief when it comes to TripAdvisor reviews. The fixtures and fittings are worn out, the whole place smells of damp and we had to ask to have the heating turned on - a table close by had 3 men wearing padded puffer jackets, it was that cold. The food didn't taste fresh and was decidedly average. Eastern Chillout must have a big family who are able to write so many glowing reviews. There is NO WAY these positive reviews are based on merit. The place is a dump!
