Tempted to go in by Trip Advisor reviews, the guy on the street and the fact that the place was already quite full. The decor was cheap and cheerful and the menu very typical. We ordered beers and starters which came very quickly and were fine. Our mains were average at best and, disappointedly, went cold very quickly. I had... More

First visit to brick lane. Liked some of the shops. Not really impressed with the curry experience. Hated the hassle from the touts from almost all restaurants. Felt like a cheap holiday experience. This restaurant had some banner saying it had won a trip advisor award.... had it? Every restaurant had won some award or other. 20% off, free round... More

We visit brick lane often for a good priced curry. We have our regular few restaurants but were approached by a tout early on in our journey who asked us what we were looking for. We said we'd like a set menu of popadoms, starter, main, rice, naan, side, 2 soft drinks and a coffee for £15 (the normal deal... More

Big fan of Indian food, and having tried most of the restaurants in Brick Lane, this one is my hands-down favourite. I've tried a few different things off the menu, and was impressed by them all. Waiting time between courses wasn't too long, and the beer was great so we wouldn't have minded waiting longer anyway! It will take some... More

I normally don't do reviews about eating out in Indian restaurants, but as a food critic I decided to put up a review on this visit I made to this eatery. Few of my work colleagues & I decided to chance this one evening, as we fancied curry & there's plenty to choose from in Brick Lane. On entrance we... More

We walked up Brick Lane taking stock of the places and reviews and finally settled for this one. I had really high expectations and was looking forward to some of London's finest. They were friendly and helpful, but I couldn't get over the food. I chose from the Chef's recommendations, with 2 chilli symbols so I thought it would pack... More

My firends and I were walking through Bricklane and getting touted at by a lot of establishments so we just ignored them and as we walked past Bengal Village I noticed no one jumped out at us and the restaurent was filling up. Though we'd give it a try and all I can say is WOW! The staff welcomed us... More

We were told that we would have drinks for free, and we get in. We had to wait a very long time before we were served, an the meal arrived after a long time. The lamb cotlets were small, with no rice, and cost about 12£, which is too much, even with free drinks. We should have gone to another... More

The food at the Bengal Village was absolutely first class, freshly cooked, and you could taste all of the different spices. The price was very fair, and that is comparing it with Bristol prices. The service is courteous, without being overbearing. We went to the restaurant because of the recommendation of the grumpy TV Master Chef food critic, but I... More
