An upscale Indian brasserie in Lichfield, just north of Birmingham, Eastern Eye is simply one of those remarkable restaurants where old-school, authentic Indian dishes are served in superb surroundings and updated with 21st-century flair. This isn’t some average curry house we’re talking about. Even judging from the exterior, it’s clear that this classy restaurant holds something special. Opened in 1987, Eastern Eye on Bird Street is something of a legend in these neck of the woods. Come and see what makes it so special.
Busy, lively (Saturday evening). Food very good with generous portion size. Service was pretty good considering how busy they were. This was our first visit. It won't be the last.
Great food and I mean great food. Really like the decor and the ambience. The staff are attentive and friendly. It is easily the best curry house for miles around.
Great food and nice vibe. Great service on what was a very busy night. Will be returning in the future - eastern eye is turning into our go-to place for curry in the area.
Just seconds away from Beacon Park, Minster Pool, Lichfield Treasury Heritage Exhibition, among many other of the city’s best sites, Eastern Eye on Lichfield’s Bird Street is enticing locals and tourists alike to experience their authentic Indian cuisine served in a romantic, classic setting. Open 7 days a week, even on public holidays, Eastern Eye takes care to serve the community whenever possible, and is even open until midnight every day except Friday. Located in Lichfield, Eastern Eye is worth a visit for those looking to take a day trip out of Birmingham.
While Eastern Eye serves up a wide range of Indian entrees, we recommend going for one of the restaurant’s signature thali offerings. Meaning plate, a thali consists of a selection of different dishes, the perfect solution for an indecisive diner who’s looking to sample. Choose from the Mumbai selection, Delhi Vegetarian selection and the Bangla selection, all with a variety of appetisers and main courses. If a thali isn’t what you’re looking for, take a gander over at Abdul Salam’s secret treasures and decide between dishes like the kala chilli chicken, King Suleman beef special, and the eastern muki lamb. For Lichfield and Birmingham residents alike, this Indian brasserie is a must-visit.
