I've ticked Indian but think the cuisine is actually Bengali. This restaurant opened last week just around the corner from my house. We tried it last night and it was excellent.

Oh dear ! Something seems to have changed at the Royal Bengal. We absolutely loved their clean, fresh curries, packed full of flavour. Tonight's takeaway was a world away from that :( Swimming in tablespoons of oil, over cooked meat, and generally tasted bland, greasy and nothing like the curry we loved. We can only assume there's been a change... More

We really enjoyed our meal. Everything we ordered was extremely tasty and very fresh. It was a little pricey but worth it.

We visited the Royal Bengal for my Dad's birthday and had a superb meal. We were a medium sized group and had a good start a add space at the back. Restaurant was quite quiet so we had good attentive service. Food was excellent , portions were about right and general quality of all was fab.

It was a little bit disappointing experience at the end. My friends suggested this restaurant as it had very good reviews so we traveled from Southampton central having high expectation and full of excitement. We booked the table for four people and were told they were very busy and we were asked to come earlier then the time we wanted... More

After eating here with my partner I must say that the overall food and service was great. Inside is a nice atmosphere, greeted by the staff and made to feel welcome straight away. Food was fantastic, no faults at all. Service was great. Will go again.
