“Magnificent Mango!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our local Indian restaurant which we take for granted, however having recently been to a number of other curry houses we now finally realise just how good this little restaurant/take-away is and it's right on our doorstep!

From the warm welcome to the great selection of hot traditional Indian food we have never had a bad meal and always enjoy a night out at the Star of Bengal.

If you are looking for great food, a great welcome and the best mango chutney we have ever come across, look no further than this little gem......a real Star of Bengal, plus the good news is that we live so close my girlfriend doesn't mind driving and I don't mind drinking the Cobra!

“Always a great meal and friendly efficient service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We go regularly to this Indian Restaurant in Uckfield even though we have a Tandoori Restaurant in our village of Newick. The Star of Bengal has never let us down and consistently serves tasty, hot, and delicious meals. The staff are courteous, polite and charming. The tables are beautifully set and always clean. The service is prompt and the plates are always heated. We have visited with both family and friends and everyone always agrees this is a first-class treat. We have tried several other Indian restaurants in the area, but this is the best by far. It has just now been refurbished and has an extensive menu, so we can thoroughly recommend it.

“Good family Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Much, much better than I remember it.
Its always been an Uckfield mainstay and a family buisness, but I thought it had become a little tired.
Went there as part of 7, order came together and was hot. My jalfreizi was authentic with finger chillis on top and the whole meal was delicious.
The only minor error was serving the wrong bottle of wine which they put on the house....nice touch I thought.
Overall good, I will be back

“Traditional Indian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you are looking for a traditional Indian restaurant with good food, good customer service and a reliable take away service then this would be an excellent choice.

We have been eating here for over 10 years and have never been disappointed. We happen tried a number of other Indian restaurants but in the end always end up back at our favourite which is the Star of Bengal.
