Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant makes a nice alternative to the many European and Irish restaurants in the area. Got a pleasant welcome and a table by the window, with a view of the Museum and the Spanish Arch area, with Galway Harbour in the background. Strict social was in place, which was reassuring. The décor is very pleasing and Eastern exotic – with purple for the walls and a light red for chairs. The atmosphere was lightened by ornaments, such as an impressive urn, placed about the restaurant itself, which is very spacious and cozy. Onion Bhaji was the starter, with chopped onions & ground lentil mixed with herbs, and spices. For the main course a full seabass in a marinade of fresh turmeric, garlic and red chili powder, washed down by Cobra beer. There is a varied vegetarian menu also as well as lamb Boti kebab and Biryani specials, including prawn biryani prepared with saffron, mild spices and served with raita and basmati rice. Service was quite attentive and the meal was completed with coffee and a small chocolate mint. Eastern Tandoori in Galway has many happy customers.

Fabulous restaurant, the food was excellent, the service attentive without being invasive, and the atmosphere good. Menu was well priced and portions were generous. I would definitely eat there again. 2 starters, 2 mains meat based, 1 bottle water, 1 bottle wine came in at €99.

Myself and my partner visited this restaurant in july and we were blown away by the quality and flavours of the food. Unreal by far the best indian we have been too in many years would highly recommend visiting here. Tandoori prawns and tandoori chicken were out of this world.

We ordered a starter Onion badgi was extreme flat and poor quality had microwave feel about it Somosa had a tesco bought feel about it also For mains we had chicken tika masala pilu and garlic nan. This was lacking in flavour portion size was good though. The garlic nan was not nan it pmwas garlic pizza bread Service was slow was not asked how our meal was as I would of certainly of voiced my opinion. 3 dishes were thrown on table spilling rice on one occasion. Would try some were else next time. I have been to some lovely Indians this is not one.

Long wait for food, duck rolls were way too overpriced since they were simply deep fried from frozen, you have to pay extra if you want rice with your main? Veggies under cooked. The service was very slow. Some might find the food okay if they have no comparison to what delicious, Indian cuisine is like.

Myself and my husband ate in Eastarn Tandoori Mondays 9th August and we were both very sick after it. I rang to speak to the manager the next day and he was unavailable. Just wanted to alert them so if they were re heating rice/chicken that they do not do this again as I would hate for this to happen to anyone else.

We ordered our meal at 8pm and had still not been served by 9pm. We had to watch the take away orders flying out the door as tables in the half filled restaurant went unserved. The 10 top table beside us remained full of dirty dishes for the whole time we were in the restaurant. The food was just ok. The slow cooked lamb was just about tender so definitely not slow cooked. The staff made absolutely no offert to ensure that anyone had a covid cert!

Service is painfully slow. (Restaurant was at half capacity) 15minutes to get our drinks order 30minutes before they took our food order 1-hour between when we finished the starter and received the mains. We saw two tables leave due to how slow it was. Food is mediocre but not deserving of the wait. I should have read the reviews before going. Also, you'll likely see a generic response on every review, showing the restaurant does not care about feedback. Will never return.

We went as a group of 12. Food took an hour to arrive, food was poor. It increased substantially in price in tge last 12 months, portion sizes reduced and honestly it was poor. We gave eaten there many times over the years but after this experience it will be years before we go back. Very disappointed.

We dined here on a weekend away in Galway in January 2023. The food and service was excellent. Staff very attentive and interested in ensuring that their guests felt welcome and enjoyed the food. Will definitely return when visiting Galway again

We were a group of 22 and had ordered ahead . When we arrived, our table was ready but there was no water on the tables - it took an unexpected long time to get water. We were then waitng for at least an hour before we were served any food. We had to ask for Papad to snack on with the drinks. The head waiter was annoyed that we complained about how long it was taking. the delay and the wine that some were drinking led to some unruly customers. the head waiter was annoyed by this and it just got worse. The food when it did arrive was very good. A little improvement in the attitude shown by the head waiter would have gone a long way to make this a great dinner.

Amazing food and great experience. We were seated immediately with no reservation at a Sunday night after being turned away by another place. Ordered the butter chicken, garlic naan, aloo gobi, and lamb piaza (recommend by the server). The butter chicken was amazing and how had a light sweetness to it i hadn’t had before. the lamb piaza was the perfect amount of spicieness as well for someone with mild spicy preferences. great service and absolutely stuffed!

Don’t waste your time. Ordered onion bhajis and tikka masala for collection. Onion bhajis were FLAT, dry and powdery… tikka masala was just few pieces of chicken and sauce.. not even an onion in the sauce. Had to order rice separately. For the price of the masala you’d think you’d get rice included. Do not recommend

Visited this resteraunt on a Wednesday evening in September. We went in early at 5pm and were the only diners but it soon filled up so must be popular. Food was excellent, lots of it and not too expensive. Service was good, polite, prompt and helpful. Would definitely visit again if in Galway

The first time I went to Galway City and I needed a place to eat with the family. We went to Eastern tandoori which is a 5 min walk from Eyre Sq and the food and atmosphere was amazing. The place was full but they were still able to accommodate for us. The food was superb and tasty. Portions were also large enough for everyone as well. The staff were very kind and patient and advised us on what to eat based on what our preferences were. Definitely recommend for anyone visiting Galway City to try.
