East India is very well located. The pedestrian walk provides you with a nice atmosphere and there’s usually a street musician nearby. It’s a short walk from the Sherbrooke metro station.
The food is good, and reasonably priced for the most part. The service is slow, specially for large numbers of people. The place is busy, so I believe they could use more staff. You’d do best by sharing with your neighbors so review your strategy before ordering. Sumosas are a must.
However, a little attitude on the staff is a little too much. Ordering drinks is an exercise in patience as they easily forgot to make the lassies and even debated how they should be made. This may be the only reason for not repeating this venue, but it’s an important reason. Perhaps a smaller group would have a better experience. As they say, your mileage may vary.
Food-wise, they have a very decent menu of all Indian delicacies in existence. Everybody seemed to be content with what they ordered and we had good company to endure the wait.
All and all a fun evening, and a good Indian place with a service that needs a little improvement.
