“Excellent customer service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We had originally booked to go to The Village in Sowerby Bridge, we walked out after half an hour of waiting to get a table despite us pre-booking - Avoid.. anyway we rang up Bay Bengal in hope of getting a table and they said it was fine. We went down and got seated more or less straight away.

We have been here several times before and always had lovely food and customer service. Tonight was no different. We were originally sat by the door which did give a draft off, however one of the waiters came up to us and asked if we could move to another table as they had a larger party and they could pull the partition down on this one. We were fine about this and moved happily. plus it got us out of the cold.

We got our food and once it arrived the waiter said he would give us free drinks on the house due to us moving tables! Was very impressed as I wasn't expecting anything!

We had our curries, happy full and plenty of drink and left. Happy, and with excellent customer service and a really good end to the night!

Would recommend this place to anybody.

“used to be great in 2003-2005 not worth a trip now”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Used to live round the corner and it was a lovelt traditonal indian... visited in Dec this year expecting more of the same, it has been done up slightly but still has the old crystal cut wine glasses which amused me and i found it charming, The staff were unwelcoming, the food was poor for every course, it is over priced, house wine was vile, staff uninterested and borderline rude.Dont bother.

“Top curry. Tika masala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I disagree with previous comment. I think the food is very good and not overpriced. You get what you pay for. Every time I've been I have been happy with the food and service. Would recommend. Chips are gorgeous. They are proper chips not frozen crap. Try it out for yourself you won't be disappointed.

“Indian Curries”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Excellent Atmosphere n Great staff But Food is average. Expensive and not Value for money. There is need to improve taste and distinguish between various curries. Well its okay for one attempt. No return.

“Curries let this place down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012 via mobile

This is an extremely clean resraurant and the staff are always friendly.

Chicken tikka, nans and rice are good. As are most of the starters. The problem is, a lot of the curries taste very similar to one another. They can be quite greasy and disappointing.

I like this place as its my local, however they need to improve the curries.

When you consider the curries from 'this and that' (takeaway in manchester) are of superior quality and charged at £5 for rice and three. Needs improvement.
