Eric’s, to sum it up in one word, is a curiosity. The exterior is more reminiscent of an Italian trattoria than a Karama-based eatery and purveyor of Goan fare. As for the food, it is also rather bizarre. The Forbidden City chicken – four skewers of chicken in a thick red sauce – has a consistency that makes it seem like the main ingredient is monosodium glutamate. But the sauce gives the meat a sticky, barbecued, smoky flavour, which we like. The prawn toast is also interesting, with four prawns encased in batter served on toasted white bread cut into finger-size pieces. The presentation makes it look like the prawns have been mummified, but the batter is fresh and the right consistency. Among the mains, the mutton curry with potato is excellent – creamy, moreish, well-spiced and wonderfully free of any of those gloopy, acidic undertones. Sadly, slow service puts a dampener on the experience. Eric's

    Its the place most frequented by us along with family & friends, for its taste, variety, value & uniqueness of Eric's. The personalized touch in all its dishes (Owner's name is Eric) because of his vast experience as a chef, is a joyful tell tale in each meal.

    It serves Goan, Indian coastal, thai & chinese. Always ask the waiters for their suggestions as they regularly have a new dish by Mr. Eric. Definetely recommended to one & all! Enjoy :)
