“Could improve”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I will start by saying this is a very popular restaurant with its die-hard fans. The food is good, however, the management need to step up to the mark.

I have now visited a few times on a Saturday evening, and ongoing problems really can ruin your one night a week out. Firstly, it is recommended that you book, this serves no purpose whatsoever, tables are never reserved and more than likely given to people that just walk in, the manager always appears to be surprised when you say you've booked a table, we have to pay several pounds to arrive by taxi and if our table is not available this can be costly, especially if you have to go and wait in the local pub until a table is ready.

Secondly, the food is undoubtably cooked fresh to order, as in many other restaurants we visit, but always takes about one and a half hours to arrive, by which time most people have gone past the hunger stage. Little Bangla are not unique in cooking their food from fresh, but other establishments seem to manage this in far less time.

On each visit, the same situation has arrived, and a range of excuses are always given, however, these excuses are NOT the customers fault and can be forgiven occasionally, but not on a regular basis. I will add at this point that the food is very good, and this is why we have returned, in the hope that the Management have eventually took responsibility, accepted they are to blame and made improvements.

Our last and I have to say final visit remained as before, and although we are always offered a reduction on the bill or something free, this does not compensate for another ruined night.

If you do not mind any of the above issues then I can recommend the food, but for us, it's the whole experience that makes an enjoyable evening, I wish them well but please take responsibility and dish out meals not excuses.
