Takeaway meal was amazing

First time customer and we used the takeaway. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. We were given free poppadoms and the portion sizes were large. The rice was perfect and our two dishes were very tasty and cooked perfectly. Keep up the good work.

I use this as my local Indian and they are consistently good. The portions are generous and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I always get a poppadom or two for free and sometimes a beer when getting a takeaway which is a nice touch. I would recommend to anyone.

I like this Indian restaurant / take away and have been visiting for a while now. I've been reading some of the comments on here about the chef changing but I can't really comment as I don't tend to order a main curry. I always order poppadums and the Tarka Dahl and a chapati and that's enough for me. I... More

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.
