Great Indian Food

I have eaten at the Bengal Tiger many, many times. As a vegetarian Indian food is a frequent choice and always great at the Bengal. The heat can go up pretty far (they have you chose a 1-5) so if you don't like fire stop before 5. I don't like buffets so have been there only at dinner. The... read more

The restaurant is located in a nice place. The staffs are not professional at all. I guess they need training on the matter. I ordered lamb biriyani. Too much oily and type of species do not match with original biriyani. I'm from Bangladesh and have tasted diverse types of biriyani in my country. Every food has its own character so... More

I'm not a "foodie",but my friends are. All meat is Halal. They are Muslim,I am not. If you order your food HOT,it will be! 1-5 scale. I had lamb briani and it was OK,the meat was spiced a little weird and a bit chewy. Excellent rice! They have a full bar and I had a Taj Mahal lager beer: Excellent!... More

I've wrote a great review when I went to Bengal Tiger for their Sunday buffet so I decided to invite a few friends for a Friday night dinner. The major disappointment was the lack of service. A few of our dishes came luke warm and the lamb was terrible. It was just not edible. I wouldn't come back for dinner... More

I've tried Indian food in the past and have never liked it. Went to Bengal Tiger with a friend for their lunch buffet one day. While enjoying my food, I was talking about coming back for my next trip. The food was so fresh and tasty. Service was good and attentive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Bengal Tiger Restaurant. The wait staff bent over backwards to make sure our service was perfect. The meal was delicious and there was plenty of it! We will definitely go back!

Typical Indian buffet, good food, reasonable prices. Interesting vegetables and good variety. Average but satisfying. They can't all be great, but certainly not disappointing.

Always great service - eat here about 3-4 times per month. Service is attentive and friendly. I have tried a variety of their dishes and have never been disappointed! Favorite Indian restaurant in Seattle city limits

We visited the Bengal Tiger a few years ago when they were in the smaller storefront across the street. In our recent visit, we found they've moved, expanded, and have gone upscale. The food was just as good as we remembered, but the homey Indian atmosphere has been replaced with a more modern and upscale decor complete with a full... More

Several of my friends and I were having lunch. One of us is a vegetarian and we had gone to Chinatown the last 4 times and we wanted to try somewhere else. Was in the Roosevelt neighborhood so tried the luncheon buffet at Bengal Tiger. Have enjoyed many Indian buffets around Microsoft so wanted to compare with the luncheon buffets... More
