I came here with a group of friends the other evening. I had a Vindaloo with mushroom rice and peshwari nan bread. The vindaloo wasn't as hot as it is in some restaurants so I was a tiny bit disappointed about that. Even though the food wasn't good enough for me to rave about it was still nice and enjoyable;...

This restaurant isn't what it used to be. Must be under new staff or have new chefs. Despite the service from the boys being fantastic, the food on the other hand was awful. Pappadums were stale, the dips you get with them looked as through someone else previously had them. The food, my partner had a chicken bhuna which he... More

An enjoyable visit. Food is very tasty and prices are fair. Would visit again. Staff are very courteous. Only criticism is that staff tended to talk amongst themselves so much that they forgot to clear tables between courses.

Great reception from the very attentive staff treated like long lost family, although only a matter of weeks since our last visit. Staff also remember the minor details making you feel the most important part of the occasion. Food was superb, which is becoming a given. Don't look elsewhere, this place and the people are the best dine out experience... More

We went early at 6pm and they were easily able to accomodate us - seated straight away and cracked on with the poppadums and chutneys/onions/lime chilli etc. Really fresh and tasty. Main was Chicken Madras, Pilau Rice, Peshwari Naan and Onion Bhaji - all great - not quite spicy enough for the Madras, but very tasty. Decor is dated and... More

I have been going to the Bengal for years. The staff are extremely polite and helpful, they remember all their customers. The food is outstanding, without a doubt the best Indian in our area.. If you want something not on the menu, you can ask for food how you like it, and they are happy to oblige. I just wouldn't... More

I telephoned in advance to reserve a table for four with extra space to accommodate one of our party who is disabled. Whilst I was parking the car the others went straight to the restaurant and I found them being seated in a cramped corner. When I complained they moved us, but it shouldn't have been necessary to complain especially... More

I booked a table for 6 people a week before my visit for a family meal. I especially asked for a table that was not near the door. On arrival I was allocated a table right by the front door. If it were not a special meal with guests I would have walked away. I wish I had done that.... More
