Excellent restaurant, excellent food. Great atmosphere. Staff all very welcoming and look after you.
This is a lovely restaurant with an outstanding menu and the food prepared is simply wonderful. They were very busy on the night we had dinner but the service was efficient and polite and the food fresh and delicious.
Food and service were excellent. Prices were reasonable an would highly recommend this restaurant. The portion sizes are very generous, so therefore we would order less next time
Really fantastic service and totally amazing food. Will be returning hopefully sooner rather than later. Definitely recommend it. Booking was really simple as well. Thanks
This was the 2nd time we have eaten there, and its the 2nd time the food was outstanding, it is a little more expensive than the average high street equivalent, but those extra few pounds are well worth it, you can really taste the difference in quality of ingredients. The portions are a really good size, I haven't managed to finish a main yet! The staff are all professional, well presented, polite and welcoming, if I've needed to ask for something a member of staff was always available within a minute or two. My only very very very tiny niggle was I'd of liked a mint before leaving, but I'm not sure if we just didn't get one as my partner went to pay at the bar so we could treat our friend without them trying to pay! And I can't remember if we got one last time or not. I booked online about an hour before I wanted a table, the booking was really simple. I will happily recommend the restaurant and Quandoo, both helped to make a meal out very enjoyable.
Not normally a fan of Indian food, but my wife is, so we tried this on a recent visit to Liverpool. A friend of ours who is Gujarati recommended it, we thought that if she says it's good then it must be. She was right. Very pleasant restaurant, not the gaudy interior some can be. Waiter was very helpful with the menu, a lot of authentic food we were not familiar with. I chose his recommendation and for the first time in ages I enjoyed an Indian meal. It was very different and full of tender Lamb chunks. My wife had marinated fish served on a skillet and she was delighted with it. The dips with the popadums were all home made and a real treat. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely go again when in Liverpool.
The location was excellent, as we where attending a Who concert at the Echo Arena, which is 40m away. I have eaten at East East many times both in Manchester and Liverpool. The service is always good, as is the food. Although, the starter (Lamb Boti) was over done and not pleasant. I found that the tables were really to close together, and I requested a move from the table I was shown to, which was dons with no problem. The adjacent table was less than an arms length away and three consequent diners asked for another table rather than this one, before it was taken. I know that restaurants like to fill window seats first, but don't cram people so close together. Some diners have come to have an intimate dining experience and not to have to share there space with strangers. The main meal was, as always, very tasty (Achari & Peshwari) and the service very efficient.
Excellent food and very fast service. It was our first time in the Liverpool branch and it we were very impressed, everything was delicious. The only thing to point out is that the booking process is a bit unusual. We book through Quandoo for 8pm, we got there are 7.45pm, gave our name and were put on a list. We were told that because we booked we had priority. So we waited until 8.15pm when we were offered a table. Also, if you're watching your calories, don't ask for cocktails or lassi! They are super sweet. You could feel the sugar granules on the mango lassi, but my husband loved it.
The restaurant has a modern, airy decor which was very nice. The food was of an excellent quality. Portion sizes are on the large side which is not a complaint, just unusual. The sharing starter for 2 easily served three and the pickles tray which normally contains three standard pickles contained 8 different types of pickles and raita. The portion size wasn't however at the expense of the quality of the food. With it specialising in Punjab food a lot of the dishes you wouldn't find on a run of the mill Indian restaurant menu. The service was excellent and the waiting on staff very polite and professional. It's a little on the expensive side but for its quality and authenticity I would highly recommend a visit.
Very convenient for pre-show dining due its location between BT and exhibition centre and a short walk from the Albert Dock. The restaurant is modern and contemporary and very clean. Service was friendly & proficient. The food was lovely with good size portions. Presentation was a surprise with eight choices of pickles accompanying our popadoms (instead of the usual three or four) and the largest naan bread I've ever seen served at any restaurant, delivered to our table on a vertical stand. I would definitely return here on a future visit to the city and would recommend it.
