Just popped in the other day having last been there about 25 years ago. It was good then and remains excellent today. Great selection of some different and varied dishes that were carefully explained by the owner. The food was well presented, cooked to our liking and very generous portions. We'll be going back again soon, but in the meantime... More

Our film production crew were in the Woodbridge area repeatedly on location recce's and during our shoot between November 2015 and February 2017. Every time we've been to the restaurant we have all had the BEST FOOD and the food is very reasonably priced. Especially entertaining is the manager who goes through the entire menu for you and advises everyone... More

Food was excellent but really stood out was the extremely helpful service. Reasonably priced too. We mostly stuck to "standard" choices but they have a selection of more unusual dishes if you're feeling adventurous. Only slight criticism was that our table for 5 was a bit small.

Haven't been here for a while so thought it was time to try it again. Interesting range of dishes, not ones you see on at all indians by any means. Overall good quality food ALTHOUGH most of the dishes were slightly bland, definitely lacked a distinctive signature. Service was good, setting was good. They offer takeaways and there were a...

We had the usual popadoms to begin, with starters and a very generous main each, rice and nans. Came to £25 each, but we had almost twice as much food as we could eat. Food quality was pretty good, service was ok too.

I've been to the Royal Bengal many times over the last 25 years so thought I'd review it! The food is very good, with enormous portions (veering on too generous - we always end up wasting food despite not ordering starters or sides!). The service is prompt and friendly and I like the cosy decor. All in all a great... More
