“Very good flavours for reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

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 for a very reasonable prices. The service is in a very relaxed and sometimes humorous way. You feel comfortably very easily. A true recommendation!

“Average vegetarian dishes - mostly frozen veg”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

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!

“La porte du bengal did it again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

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.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

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 will be totally comfortable with being called simply "Mo" (from Mohammed).

Palok Chicken (spinach chicken with at least a dozen gloves of garlic!) comes at € 9,90 and absolutely takes your breath away. You can get this, as all other dishes, at "Level 1, 2 or 3" - as Mohammed likes to check the level of spiceness with his clients.
Everything I tasted here is a lot better than your average Indian. Two thumbs up!

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

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.
