    Last day of term yesterday, and I finally made it to Evil Eye.

    I was wondering what everyone thinks of the place?
    The menu's huuge, so any favourites?

    Shame the place stank of sick, and the long island ice tea wasn't as nice as I thought it'd be, but the shooter I had and the key west cooler was goood.

    Just interested!

    Too hippyish for me, but great food (if you can afford it).

    They make the staff drink on duty. Like, basically force them to, I can't condone an organisation like Evil Eye.

    I cannot stand it. It's always rammed, and impossible to get a seat. The bar staff scare me quite a bit to be honest too. It used to be a little known gem, and now its totally over run. I like trembling madness better, but not been in ages.

    I dislike the staff but I love sitting in bed upstairs drinking the cocktails when it's quiet!

    A few of my faves are Apple Strudel, Persian Carpet Ride, Majestyk Melon and **** Turpin. I haven't tried the food yet but apparently it's really nice.

    HOnestly, it is not worth the price for the dingy and nasty Reggae style they are going for.

    Never thought I'd agree with Jimbo, but it's a tip. Too expensive, too small and a bit of a ****hole.

    How is it too expensive? Excellent cocktails for £5.

    A lot of places, when it comes to cocktails, you wont be able to get 2 for £10.

    Honestly, I'm inclined to agree on the price front. Very, very few worthwhile cocktails are under £5. You're looking at £6.50+ per drink.

    Very much a novelty.
    But oh, what a novelty.

    Reggae style? Wut?

    I think it's fun, and you get an excellent range of drinks to choose from. Overpriced, though, to be sure.
