Went for a surprise treat on a relatives birthday. The reason given for waiting nearly an hour between ordering and receiving our food was that it was cooked fresh. The restaurant was virtually empty at the time of placing our order, a poor excuse as there being only a party of 10 in the restaurant at the time.

Been using Bengal Spice for a few years now and have yet to be disappointed. We love the mix of the usual dishes with the less usual. Food always arrives at the table well presented, pipeing hot n freshly cooked. The staff are friendly and accommodating. We've got to the point where we are afraid to take anyone new just... More

This restaurant has been here for years in different guises. The strange bar area gives way to a corridor to the restaurant with well spaced tables and funky music. The food ranges from modern sub continent to standard after the pub fair. Good range of vegetable dishes and a kitchen that are generally able to match a dish you know... More

This is one of the few restaurants in the area that has served consistently good food over many years. Unlike some Indian restaurants where sauces tend to be much of a muchness, the variation of flavours and spices used at this place makes every dish a delight. If you like Indian food you will love this place

The food was excellent, flavourful and hot enough, but not hot enough to blow your head of (just how I like my food). The variety of flavours was excellent. The staff were friendly and very apologetic when they didn't have the wine we ordered, but the drinks were just parked at the end of the table and the nan bread... More

My boyfriend who lives in loughton has taken me here on two occassions now - both times the food has been excellent - cannot fault it in any way. Tables are a bit close together but apart from that no complaints

Had ignored this placed for years for no other reason that it looked a bit characterless. Wish I hadn't as it is probably the best Bangla restaurant in the area. Everything is well presented, cooked to perfection and brings back tastes of when I first got into Asian food years back. The restaurant is furnished very simply and may be... More

I've eaten in the Bengal for years and always been impressed with the quality of food and friendly service. My most recent visit was with family and we were well looked after despite my young daughter making a right mess. The menu is varied and contains a number of dishes that you won't find elsewhese in the high street as... More
