Reliable spot for Indian food in the U District

Over the years we have eaten at the Bengal Tiger many times and it has always been reliably good. We ate there recently after a 2year hiatus and we're pleased to find it is still a good choice for Indian food in our neighborhood. Nice atmosphere, good service, good food. The rack of lamb earned... read more

Informal and friendly Indian restaurant with Punjabi food that is really good! Great for takeout or eating in, or snacking at the bar. We ordered to take out and had a beer at the bar, and Chef Mohammed kept bringing us great snacks to enjoy while our food was being cooked -- great place for a pleasant and tasty meal.

We went there for lunch one fine day and ordered our food despite the buffet which looked deprived and not worthy. The ordered food was no where near to the authentic taste it should be the amount of fresh cream on all curries were too much to handle and veggies all over the platter. The lamb was to tough to...

We tasted variety of dishes and well, very typical Indian food. I don't think there is anything specially good that can be recommended. The food wasn't bad, but wasn't greatest either.

We discovered Bengal Tiger a few months ago and it's where we go for Indian Food now. The place is quiet and comfortable, with good service and yummy food.

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 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 veggie... 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
