Very good flavours for reasonable prices

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... read more

I have been many times to this restaurant with friends, and brought colleagues who came over from Asia. Everyone agreed the food was excellent. And excellent service as well.

My wife and I dined on a Sunday evening and arrived about 7:00 and there was only one other couple there. But by the time we left it was almost full of patrons. We had an excellent meal. My wife had the Chicken Tikka Massala and I had the Scampi Vindaloo. We had an appetizer of the Sheek Kabab which... More

My experience at this restaurant goes back to many many years, but then I didn't explore an option to write a review. Now I came across some write up about this restaurant in another site, so writing my review immediately here. It was way back in 2001-2 when I was in Brussels as part of my official visit, we had...

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

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
