We had a very nice mean at the NNB, staff are very friendly and welcoming, and the food was very nice, drinks and food reasonably priced. They gave us some starter dish on the house that they were trying out and canvassing opinion on, that was also nice a chickpea based dish. Only two minor grumbles are it's very noisy/echoey... More

It was good to see this restaurant back in business with the same people in charge. As before, the food was very good and the service very efficient. It has been completely refurbished and is impressive. The only criticism is that the new layout makes it quite cramped and a bit noisy.

I have been looking for an Indian restaurant offering a menu with some interesting food and I have found it. We've tried the New New Bengal twice now and on both occasions we have been very pleased with the food. We've ordered from the house specialities menu and the food has been great - I highly recommend the Chicken Korai... More

13 of us booked for 5pm for a birthday meal with friends and family. The restaurant was empty when we arrived. We ordered food and drinks with the starters taking over 40 minutes to arrive. The curry was tasty and everyone agreed, as there was no excessive oil. Mine and my sons were just warm but were fine. We had... More

The decor is a little stark and the atmosphere a bit lacking but the quality of the food by far made up for that. This place has been closed for a while and seems to have had a low profile reopening, and we were t sure what to expect. Much of the same? We were pleasantly surprised; the menu has... More

Visited on a Friday night and was good to see the place buzzing with a good atmosphere! Decor is now more modernised and the feel as you walk in is quite open compared to how the restaurant used to be. The staff were welcoming and friendly and we were shown to our table with some complementary street food waiting for... More

This place is now called the New New Bengal. it has recently re-opend after a fire so maybe the staff just aren't used to things yet. This was the most chaotic dining experiences I have ever had. We had booked and were about five minutes late but noticed the newly renovated restaurant doesn't have any seating now for people ordering... More

Not sure review should be here but after a whole 2 years closed after a fire (how?) it has now reopened as the "new new bengal" with the same owners. It's very modern and perhaps a bit too bright and (2 years in the making) not necessarily a great space. Certainly on New Years Eve the tables were a little... More
