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

Oh dear ! Something seems to have changed at the Royal Bengal. We absolutely loved their clean, fresh curries, packed full of flavour. Tonight's takeaway was a world away from that :( Swimming in tablespoons of oil, over cooked meat, and generally tasted bland, greasy and nothing like the curry we loved. We can only assume there's been a change... More

Description
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.
