For curry lovers a visit to Tewkesbury should include a visit to the excellent Eastern Eye. This is essentially a takeaway, with a tiny seating area for those wishing to eat in.
I usually look for new dishes to try, but on this occasion thought I would order a Chicken Tikka Masala and I would say this was one of the best I had tasted from a curry house. It had a sweetness with a minty, creamy, spicy kick.
We enjoyed the substantial remains of our meal at home the following evening with a bottle of The Society’s Vin de Pays Côtes de Gasgogne 2011. The wine is a blend of Ugni Blanc and Colombard and was crisp, with citrus, grapefruit and a hint of sharp apples. It was an enjoyable match with the food.
