“it could be a lot better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

i went here 3 years ago to have a meal for my mates wifes birthday. ive dined in many an indian restaurant in my time including london. i thought the food was well over priced compared to other indian restaurants. anyways i decided on one of my favorite dishes the tandoori mixed grill. it was very dissapointing every mixed grill ive had came out on a sizziling hot plate and it left for you to help yourself !! this mixed grill came out on the plate and for the price i was disgusted. that will be my last trip to the bengal palace ! theres better places so dont waste your time and money on this place

“Bengal Palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

The menu is very good with no description except a section heading. This may sound strange but their intention is to get the customers to tell them exactly what they want and they endeavour to come up with exactly that. I took some people there recently that wanted fish curry. The owner was chatting to them for quite a while and came up with some excellent food. When on suggested her's wasn't as spicy as she liked he took the meal away and modified it to her taste. They were all impressed and had a great time and food.

“Promised a lot more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Nice warm welcome for our party of 3 adults & 3 kids the menu looked good & the staff allowed us to mix & match dishes to allow for the kids tastes. When the food came & I live in the Midlands & am a bit of a curry connoisseur, it was damned hot. All us adults struggled to eat the main courses through the actual heat of the curries, none of which was hotter than a Jalfrezi. Also noticed when I went to the loo upstairs their was a disabled lift which was full of stuff so good job i was not disabled. Well not until the next morning ( maybe a bit too much for you there!) Sorry Bengal Palace lovely staff shame about the food
