Had a lamb doner baguette with fried onions, was a nice quick option and reasonably cheap compared to other options on the park.

Ate here the two days we visited over scarefest and the kebabs were amazing. Had chicken tikka and mixed kebabs... More

Had my family with me but there was far too few tables and chairs at this restaurant, there were people having to stand over each other waiting for them to finish eating so they could get a table. To be fair the food did taste good and some things were reasonably priced but others were expensive such as a portion... More

Good food, costs around 8.50 for drink wrap and chips which isn't too bad considering the location. Halal food was an added bonus

Very average food and high prices. Don't get a discount with annual passes either so disappointed with that.

My children love the chicken tikka with rice and Nan my youngest also enjoys the chicken nuggets with chips the staff are always friendly and welcoming. They also provide chicken tikka raps mixed and... More

After wandering the park for quite some time trying to decide what to eat, we made a decision and settled on Eastern Express. We were served almost immediately by three members of staff, all of whom didn't seem overly interested and had to repeatedly ask us to remind them of our order. I then jumped out of my skin as...

We visit Alton Towers quite alot and 9 times out of 10 we always visit the Eastern Express and have a Main Meal 3 (Chicken Tikka) this is the best chicken tikka I've ever had & Nann breads are made with your order. Would really recommend to anyone I know.
