Owner/waiter was a bit surly and rigid..didn't hear/understand a request and when he brought something that I couldn't eat (lactose), insisted that I'd have to pay for it. When he brought the check, he immediately started to tell me how to tip & said the kitchen was closed when a client asked for tea. Poor social skills.
good vegetarian menu - also nice beer selection.
Manager refused to accept the groupon until we fought with him for ~20 minutes. He said that he had already printed the final bill and could not enter in the groupon and that the best solution would just be for us to come back and use it some other time (ie spend more money there).
Will not be returning
The food was uniformly excellent as was the service. We greatly enjoyed our dinner. The restaurant is also nicely decorated, and we enjoyed the experience. Cash only, however.
The food was excellent and the staff very friendly.
The food here is amazing...we had the chhoata (mubed chicken in nepalese spices), the paneer pakora (which was unlike any i've ever had and quite possible my favorite dish of the night, and the chicken tikka masala (which was top notch here). This place is like a hidden gem but it's not really hidden: it's on the corner of Mass Ave & Walden St and just begging to be patronized.
Adverage. Not nearly as good as it used to be.
Service was bad. The server said the groupon was expired. It expires on Mar 20 2014. He said we couldn't dine in because they were closed. The open sign was on and the hours posted on both the door and menu didn't say anything about being closed between 3-5.Then we were thirsty because he was on the phone and didn't refill any of our water.
Avoid this place at all costs. It's not worth the savings. The food was mediocre at best and the service was the worst I've experienced in recent memory.
The waiter (maybe owner?) was terribly unfriendly/rude and the food was overly salty. The place across the street looked much better, and everyone in my party kept gazing over at it wishing we were there instead. It really wasn't worth the savings to endure this experience. Needless to say, I won't be back and/or recommend it to anyone.
From Our Editors
Taking its name from the mystical concept of the third eye—which provides enlightened insight that transcends the traditional senses—Third Eye Restaurant aims to broaden diners' worldview with its menu of classic Indian and Nepalese cuisine. The chefs rely on time-honored recipes and culinary techniques as they create an extensive menu of "unusually good food," according to the Boston Globe.
In addition to making their own cottage cheese and yogurt in-house, they also embrace traditional Indian methods by grilling entrees inside a clay tandoor oven. Third Eye Restaurant's menu also features a wide array of vegetarian-friendly options as well as classic Nepalese dishes, including steamed dumplings filled with minced chicken and Himalayan spices.
With its tangerine-orange walls and brick-red drapes, the eatery's vibrant decor complements the bold flavors on its menu. The blond wooden tables and simple chairs lend a bit of balance to the dining room's more assertive design choices while simultaneously lending a cozy, homestyle vibe to the space.
