Third visit and we'll be back

Third visit to the Café Bangla which is now un-licensed so take your own alcohol - there's no corkage charge! Excellent food, which tastes freshly cooked and very friendly efficient service - well worth a visit.

This is literally the nicest indian we have found in the north east so far. Use to eat in/ get takeaway once a week.

We ordered a takeaway from here as we hadn't used them before. We were told it would be 50 minutes. We waited 80 minutes then rang again as it hadn't arrived. We were told the delivery man had been and that our food was on the hot plate. We explained that we hadn't left our front room and he definitely... More

Not standard take away fare, but fresh, tasty and gorgeous. I've had sit in meals, takeaways and even a meal won in a competition. Whatever we have the food has been consistently great

Travelled to the area for business. Searched for local curry houses and the reviews which came up for this restaurant were brilliant. After eating at cafe bangla, I now know why. The food was fantastic and the service was great. Would most definitely recommend this restaurant.

We ate early evening and it was quite quiet. There is no alcohol licence, so we had our own bottle of wine. Had unusual curries, not seen before, served with a delicious Nan, hot and crunchy. Able to park directly outside. Would definitely go again

Restaurant has lost its drink licence which explains the catastrophic fall off in trade;used to be good but now in the final throes of death before becoming a takeaway. No light heating or atmosphere; toilets dirty and unkempt or loo tissue;,such a shame as it used to be aspiration all to visit. Cook wears jeans and t shirt no enthusiasm... More
