I came here for my birthday, a large group of 12. the food was fine, nothing too special. They got our orders wrong and were in no way encouraged to rectify and we simply just had to deal with what we were given. The service is poor, the men are very grumpy and I felt as though we were very... More

The food is very good and flavoursome and we really enjoyed our night at the Bay of Bengal. The view from our table was just stunning, looking over the sea.

One of our group has give a “Absolutely Cracking” review to this restaurant in the past ... Not this time!! There were four of us and we had a full range of starters and mains with naan and rice. The tikka chicken my wife had was nothing more than poor chicken with red food dye on it. I had a... More

I have used this restaurant in many occasions for take away meals which have been wonderful. I had the privilege of eating here last year and we were seated by the window down stairs and the view was amazing. The food was fantastic and the restaurant being a BYO was very accommodating and provided glasses etc. We had children with... More

Such a warm welcome from Raj and his staff, they are so customer focused, it shows with the amount of repeat customers they have. The food is always to a high standard, very authentic, with a great variety to suit all tastes. Remember to request a table down stairs as the view of the harbour and out across the bay... More

Had several meals in the Bay of Bengal over the last few months, have to say the food and service have been superb, lots of individual flavours to the food. Downstairs tables have to be the best views anywhere in Tenby without question. Looking forward to another visit, soon!

Excellent food, a varied menu, BYO and reasonably priced too makes this one of the best Indian restaurants we've had the pleasure to experience. Four of us chose different meals from the wide range of menu items and we were all very happy. I chose a chicken dish with cream, mango and spinach (forgot the name sorry). It had a... More

Recently went as a large group. Were accommodated on the lower floor with views out over Tenby Harbour. No complaints about any of the food served and was thoroughly enjoyed. No license so take your own alcohol no corkage fees. All in all very good evening, service was slightly slow but not off putting. Will certainly revisit if we are... More

Perhaps it's the different style of indian but it wasn't to my taste. To be fair the reviews warned of unfriendly rude waiters but this couldn't be further from the truth. All the staff we met were very welcoming and friendly. I can put up with a certain bruskness if the food is good, but sadly it wasn't. The starter... More

A Tuesday night in October is not the best time to be looking for food in Tenby but eating here was a definite bad decision. The welcome was shocking and maybe a result of being the only person looking for Indian food - the place was deserted. the waiter offered no encouragement in dish selection, the menus were well fingered...

Grizzlers, Waiter at Bay of Bengal, responded to this review

I'm never compelled to respond to a bad review, but on this occasion I feel I must. The place was not deserted. You were sat alone upstairs because we we're full downstairs. You would have known this, too. Customers leaving the restaurant were in plain view of where you were seated. You even spoke to a couple if I recall... More
