  • The Eastern Tandoori: Truly Vile

    by diane1960 Written Oct 18, 2007

    Visted here last week with husband. Upon entering, sat down in bar area opposite huge bowl of manky looking trail mix - not very hygenic....! while we chose our wine. We ordered popadums to start - these had been microwaved (!!) not fried as they should be and still had raw 'cardboardy' parts in it and came with a vivid green watery raita. I had tandoori chicken starter and tarka dall as my main as I wasn't too hungry (thank god). The chicken was extremely tough and bony and this too tasted as though it had just come out of the microwave. The tarka dall was nasty too - it usually has a puree - type consistency but this was just a dish of lentils with some curry sauce in it. Nothing subtle about it at all. My husband didn't fare much better - his lamb jalfrezi was disgusting, little chewy chunks of meat (and none too many) and the sauce tasted raw as though the spices hadn't been cooked properly. Our rice and chapati were OK though. With wine the total bill came to nearly 50 euro. A total ripoff. We were the only customers in the place - hardly surprising. Next night went to the Four Liars Bistro in Shandon - try it and have the steak - utterly fabulous, you won't be disappointed, unlike here.

    Favorite Dish: nothing - it was disgusting.

    Excellent indian situated upstairs next to the opera house. Good service and lovely surrounds. All staff are dressed in ethnic clothing and are attentive and polite. We both had lamb dishes which were tender and tasty and would recommend it as a good night out

    Good food and plenty of it (we had to get a doggy bag!)

    The staff are a bit annoying, you feel as if they are constantly watching you. They almost pounce on you when they see that you have finished a course.

    The Eastern Tandoori: Indian Luxury

    Sumptuous, very luxurious Indian restaurant with an incredibly rich interior decor. Their dinner menus can be quite pricey, but their various lunch time menus of around €11(between 12:00-14:30 on weekdays, until 16:00 on Sundays) are definitely worth a try and excellent value for money.
