The 12 of us went early on a Saturday night for a pre booked meal while on a stag do. (BOOK IT BOOK IT BOOK IT). The whole experience was a treat. Some of the guys haven't been to an Indian before (sheltered life!!) and were unsure of what to order, despite being encouraged by the professionals to have a... More

The food was tasty there is no doubting that. Slightly overpriced and the buffet is completely pointless in my eyes. My one problem has to be the amount of times we were asked the same question about 4 times by 4 different people. Twice I can accept but 4 times just makes me think do the staff communicate? You'd ask... More

Would definitely recommend this restaurant. The staff are attentive but not overpowering. The food was excellent. The nan bread the best I've ever had. Free liquors and chocolates rounded off the meal very nicely. Wish I lived closer so that I could visit again.

We have visited the Eastern Eye on many occasions and the menu is great. The food is authentic and very tasty with a wide variety of curries. The buffet nights are excellent value-the food is hot and changed on a regular basis. If you want a great Indian meal in Newton Abbot then the Eastern Eye is a must

Ate here one Monday night on my own. The table next to me was a gathering of late-teenagers celebrating a birthday, the staff made a nice presentation to the birthday boy. Food was cooked in a good time and enough of, I had a meat dish, pilau rice & nan bread, I can eat a lot, but this was enough... More

This is one of the best resturants in town and by far one of the friendliest. If its someones birthday they all come out with their instruments and sing happy birthday. They also consistently when we go just leave the bottle of wine on the table if you have or havent payed for it and dont charge extra. The food... More
