Came here last week with my partner for an early dinner prior to a theatre visit. The restaurant itself is quite understated, but is bright and clean. I found the chairs to be very low down and joked to my partner that I needed a booster cushion and the attentive waitress immediately came over with one for me! (Not sure if this is maybe a regular request as I’ve never had to sit on a booster before and I’m 53 years old and 5ft 2”). Anyway, once on my “booster seat” I was much more comfortable! The menu itself offers up not only the usual Thai fayre, but some interesting additions and there was quite a lot to choose from. We arrived at 5.30pm and were told they needed the table back by 8.30pm (which seemed plenty of time and we had to leave at 7.15pm anyway to get to our show). Our drinks order was taken very quickly and drinks arrived almost immediately along with some very tasty Thai prawn crackers. We did then feel a little pressurised to order as the waitress kept asking if we were ready, so we ordered our starters of Pan Fried Scallops and Thai Calamari to give ourselves some more time to study the menu. The starters arrived quickly (at 5.55pm) and were very well presented. However, although both dishes had been given a one chilli rating on the menu the dishes themselves were totally different in their level of heat. The calamari had no heat to it at all, in fact the calamari was rather tasteless and had to be drowned in the accompanying sauce (which was tasty but very mild) however the scallops were extremely spicy (we both like very hot, spicy food but our mouths were literally on fire, which did detract a little from the taste of the dish). In fact somebody on the next table ordered the scallops whilst we were there and they too were having problems with the heat of the dish. Before I’d even finished eating my starter the waitress was hovering again with her electronic pad asking for our orders for the mains, which I gave to her in-between trying to finish the last bits of my starter! For the main course we ordered Prawn Pad Thai, Chicken Green Curry, Spicy Duck and Jasmine Rice – these arrived very quickly (by 6.10pm) and were all very tasty (although not hot and spicy at all, which, considering the curry and the duck had 2 chilli rating and the scallop starter which burnt our mouths had 1 chilli rating was a little confusing). With what we thought was plenty of time to spare we ordered desserts (I ordered fritters and my partner ordered ice-cream) – however, after the speedy deliverance of our starters and mains there was an enormous wait for something which should have been really quick to prepare. After waiting for an extraordinarily long time, we finally gave up and asked for the bill, which we paid at 7.15pm . They had, kindly, not charged us for the desserts (in the rush to leave my partner had told me that we had paid for them but, has since realised they did not). As we were leaving they did say we could come back and have them another time. This was a lovely offer but seeing as we were off to watch a show and were travelling home the next morning this would not have been possible in this instance.It was a shame we had to rush out without finishing our meal. However we did enjoy our main dishes.To the restaurant’s credit the owner has since been in touch with my partner to apologise and has looked into the matter for us. He has reassessed the scallop sauce composition and is changing it to reflect the chilli rating and has also spoken to the staff regarding the delay with our desserts (this apparently was due partly as the fritters are made from scratch and partly due to two other tables of 11 people in total sending through their starter orders at the same time as our dessert order reached the kitchen). His response was very much appreciated and he obviously cares about customer service and the food he serves.

Having eaten at many Indian restaurants this one, as the suggests, specialising in southern Indian cooking was brilliant. There were several dishes I had not come across before including a number of fish curries The list of starters was extensive as was the number of vegetation options Thoroughly enjoyable well flavoured/spiced food . Give it a go you won’t be sorry you did

Seafront Tandoori

Reviewed By roomforimprovement

We used to eat here a lot but our recent visit will be the last...unless they change the menu. They have been serving the exact same dishes for what must be 12-15 years now. No changes, not even any specials. The staff also seemed bored working there and the quality of the ingredients has gone down. The mixed Tandoori starter was very old, tough and stale...it had been cooked, frozen and reheated at least once. There was a wilted garnish on the side I dare not eat and a few stripes of mediocre sauce/drizzle. My Balti was an over sweet, red gloup and the rose wine was very low quality. The people here are nice...but for goodness sake, isn't it time for some changes? It's not like people are fighting to get in...Many thanks for your lovely review old is gold. If you don’t like the traditional Indian foods please welcome to go another place don’t do traditional Indian foods. And please don’t insult traditional Indian foods. Many thanks.

We ordered takeaway from this place. Pad thai and chicken with holy basil (hot!!!) was nice, chicken with baby corn was ok. Spring rolls tasted great. Fishcake appetizers were good but beware it is not an 'English style' fishcake but something you would actually get in Thailand (bit rubbery). Don't forget to reserve a table as it seems always full on weekends.

Went here for lunch on Sunday. Nice decor and very comfortable chairs, so was nice to spend some time here after a lot of walking. We all went for the thali (2 meat and 2 veg versions) which I like because it’s good value and saves having to think too hard! Thalis here include a small dessert (gulab jamun) and a lovely fluffery buffery naan.

My wife and I have eaten here many times and took some friends there on Saturday , 1st June, even though we told them it was superb they were still amazed at the high quality of every course and the brilliant service. Hoisum may be slightly more expensive but it is worth every penny. Without doubt this is our favourite in the Eastbourne area and the food is exceptional.
