I recently celebrated my birthday with a group of friends at La Porte du Bengale who made it a lovely experience. The service was friendly, the food was tasty, the prices were value for money and the ambiance was comfortable. They even put up with us when we got a little loud and gave us each a glass of bubbles... More

Decided to try this restaurant on a recommendation and because the Belgian version of a curry is something bland, creamy and normally omitting any spices. The Service The waiter was very pleasant but incredibly slow (ordered drinks and had to wait 10 to 15 mins for them to arrive) This speed of service continued through out the meal, at one... More

Starters (somossa) were dry, chicken massala was tasteless, 'soup' of green peas seems more like water, but above all the sauces seemed like old and warmed in the microwaves oven. Definitively one of the worst Indian restaurant I ate in my like ( and I went to several ones in different countries) Service was good but it didn't buy back... More

Indeed, finding good Indian style restaurants is very hard in Brussels. I have visited a few and this one was just the next on my list. And I can tell you, as far as I see now, it will be my last! There is no need to look further! The food is great, a large variety of dishes and all... More

This is my local Indian restaurant and I was disappointed by the veggie dishes on our visit - very uninspiring aloof ghobi and mixed veg curry. Attentive service and nice atmosphere but need to work on the food!

Having been away from Brussels it was a delight to be back. I have gotten used to high quality Indian food - and here I find it similar to the best places in London. The spices and the sauce are delicate and perfectly spiced and has my highest recommendation.

About one kilometer away from the political decision-making heart of Europe lies a true treasure. Its price/quality ratio is exceptional, but the taste alone is priceless. Once you discover this small room of traditional tandoori haven with a Bangadeshi twist, you will keep wanting to come back. The owner is always there, and if you are an English speaker, he... More

I had a great Indian meal at this restaurant, the food and service were amazing. The restaurant was recommended to me and I am so pleased I went to try the food, as everything was spot on. The taste was great, the wine was also very nice. All the service was personal and I loved the whole experience. Thank you.

We have been eating at this wonderful family run business for over 20 years. The present owner, Mohammed, is front of house and his wife cooks. They are the second generation of owners and their food is as good as that of their mother and father. It is small and intimate and one is assured of a friendly welcome and... More

Very unattentive waiters (examples: It took 30 minutes to receive the coctail maison, which is basically just some sparkling wine with strawberry syrop. We didn't receive rice to our food. They forgot to bring the extra naan which we ordered). After 2 beers, the stock of Jupiler was already finished, and it took the waiters another half an hour to... More
