Good location but everything else need improvement. An ugly ceiling and a near zero decor makes the place unappealing to begin with. Furniture is of poor quality and finish; our table was badly wobbling before somebody put a pack of support underneath one of its legs). Taste of the food is just about OK; not what you pay for to experience an authentic Indian cuisine. I shall advise to try your evening out elsewhere, at least till they really pull themselves up.

If you love eating Indian Food and people watching at the same time, the balcony of F.East is a must. It is situated on buzzy Long Street right in the centre of Cape Town. Watching the strange assortment of passers by from an upstairs balcony overlooking other laticed balconies reminded me a little of New Orleans but with a very Southern African flavour.

I am not an expert in Indian food, but the range seemed very good and the flavours were excellent. Service was brisk, efficient and very friendly.

They have a good range of wine, and all in all, I can't think of one good reason not to try this restaurant - except the difficulty parking.
