The Eastern World Which includes the sub continent of India created all the old delicious dishes dated back to the old Mogul Period which started from 1538, e.g. The Mild Mogul dishes etc, popular throughout the world. So here we carefully create and select the dishes which would be most suitable for our customers in the South West. Established in 1990 in Newton Abbot's fashionable Queen Street, The Eastern Eye is the original contemporary Indian restaurant, responsible for re-defining quintessential Indian cuisine, by bringing together authentic Flavours, reflecting traditional recipes using innovative techniques, with world-class presentation, we have created an exciting range of menus and palate pleasing dishes that guarantees to tantalize the tastes of our diverse range of customers. Of course, no Restaurant would be successful without efficient and knowledgeable staff and we are fortunate enough to have some of the best in the country. We are delighted and proud to say the response from our guests has been remarkable, especially from the Neighbourhood who treat us as their very own. This has enabled us to focus on quality since day one. If you have tasted a dish elsewhere which is not available do not hesitate to discuss it with us. We will endeavour to fulfill your request.
