We live close to this restaurant and we have visited regularly over the few years its been open and we noticed a slight decline in quality over the summer months so started to use it a bit less but its under new ownership now and the menu has been changed and vastly improved. I've always had my predictable favourite meal... More

Friendly staff, nearly empty on a Friday night. Waited 30 minutes for a takeaway. Dahl was runnier than soup and not good to eat!! Naan was chewy. Rice and lamb were ok but not amazing. Cinnamon Bay further down the road that I have used for years is much better. New kid on the block, maybe. It will be a... More

Having tried numerous Indian restaurants around the Southampton area this is my firm favourite, giving an excellent all-round balance of service, food quality and price. The service is always friendly, and they even remember what wine we drink when we havent visited for months! Second time we visited we asked for Garlic Rice (not on the menu) and they were... More

The best local Indian for miles around having tried them all, I have been using this establishment for years and have thoroughly enjoyed every single meal here. The food is superb, of generous portion and consistent. The service is charming, friendly and attentive. The restaurant conducts itself professionally regardless of the amount of customers and size of groups it entertains.... More

I come to The Royal Bengal about twice a week and sometimes even more. The food is absolutely stunning and the customer service is outstanding. I would recommend to everyone!

First time customer and we used the takeaway. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. We were given free poppadoms and the portion sizes were large. The rice was perfect and our two dishes were very tasty and cooked perfectly. Keep up the good work.

I use this as my local Indian and they are consistently good. The portions are generous and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I always get a poppadom or two for free and sometimes a beer when getting a takeaway which is a nice touch. I would recommend to anyone.

I like this Indian restaurant / take away and have been visiting for a while now. I've been reading some of the comments on here about the chef changing but I can't really comment as I don't tend to order a main curry. I always order poppadums and the Tarka Dahl and a chapati and that's enough for me. I... More

I took my partner to this restaurant, my mates go to this restaurant and they told it was good. I ordered a lamb dish as my main, Starter was nice, but when I was eating my main, the meat was beef from its taste, smell and its colour, I know this because I use to work in the meat market.... More

I've ticked Indian but think the cuisine is actually Bengali. This restaurant opened last week just around the corner from my house. We tried it last night and it was excellent.
