Very enjoyable unpretentious South East Asian dishes with the added bonus of being BYO and with no corkage. Staff were friendly enough although perhaps not to the standard of other eating establishments - adequate but thats all. Would certainly visit again if in the area.

Earlier reports were all very positive, but I can only agree with some of the latest comments. The service needs sharpening up. It was quite a busy Monday night and we had to wait a while. The waiter seemed to have a problem with understanding and lacked any charm at all. Having said that, the food was acceptable considering the... More

I went here last month for a friends birthday and was pretty disappointed. The staff were very unfriendly and made us feel pretty unwelcome. The food took ages to come out (well over an hour) and we were not given any explanation or apology. The food was pretty oily and old tasting and pretty expensive for what it was. We... More

We arrived to an already very full restaurant with people coming and going with their takeaway orders. Little did we know that we'd still be waiting for our food just over an hour later... The staff were not overly friendly, and when the food finally arrived it was nice but went cold fairly quickly. Very average experience.

Shocking service, it took over an hour for our food to arrive. They claimed the kitchen was short staffed and yet take away customers were served preferentially quickly. Also the dish I ordered was not what I received, the staff just walked away from me as I complained about this.

Management response:

Hi Mike We are extremely regretful of your dining experience and fully appreciate your frustration. I firstly want to clarify that this was a table for 10 people so it would take longer than expected. However, by no means should it take one hour and we do apologise for this. Indeed we were understaffed on that Thursday night and this... More

We ate here on a recent Thursday and I'm pleased to report there were a good 5 or 6 other tables occupied in this small restaurant. The atmosphere is lovely - really cosy with the hustle and bustle of the St Marks Road outside. The food was of a very high quality and it's BYO. we live locally and I'm... More

I have i eating at this restaurant regularly for several years. It is an unpretentious place in the heart of Bristol's east side. It offers Bangladeshi food from a good but not too extensive menu. There are good vegetarian options. The Eastern Taste is very popular with local people, particularly towards the end of the week and at the weekends.... More

Living just over the road in St Werburgh's, I've been to Eastern Taste a few times over the years, and the last time I went, just a week ago, was a reminder of why it's so good. It's a popular restaurant on Easton's bustling St Marks Road, so when we arrived on a Friday night (bottle of wine in hand... More
