The restaurant is pretty small ~30 seats and can be busy. Their food is tasty and spicy, They offer very good curries, naans and mango lassi. Only disadvantage is extremely slow service, especially when the restaurant is full. The restaurant accepts only cash payments.

We went to this restaurant a couple of months ago. The food was OK, but nothing special. However, the service was just way toooooo sloooow. The place was half-empty (I think, beside two of us there was only one table with a couple and another with three people). All of us passed the starter stage and were impatiently waiting for...

The title just about sums it up. The food fell flat on its face: the sauces seemed reheated and the starters were far from impressive, apart from the tandoori shrimps - nice but still very expensive at 8€). Everything tasted bland and there was no kick to anything. We were definitely not impressed by the food. When our turn to... More

This is a nice place to taste Indian food. The place is friendly. The only "problem" is you have so many options.

All the dishes are always very tastefull, no doubt about it. But many times, when I ordered a delivery, they never wrote the order and I had to call them many time to finally have it (2 hours later). Yesterday, I had a birthday with friends, made a reservation 1 week before (hard to do because almost always had the... More

I have been many times to this restaurant with friends, and brought colleagues who came over from Asia. Everyone agreed the food was excellent. And excellent service as well.

My wife and I dined on a Sunday evening and arrived about 7:00 and there was only one other couple there. But by the time we left it was almost full of patrons. We had an excellent meal. My wife had the Chicken Tikka Massala and I had the Scampi Vindaloo. We had an appetizer of the Sheek Kabab which... More

My experience at this restaurant goes back to many many years, but then I didn't explore an option to write a review. Now I came across some write up about this restaurant in another site, so writing my review immediately here. It was way back in 2001-2 when I was in Brussels as part of my official visit, we had...

I recently celebrated my birthday with a group of friends at La Porte du Bengale who made it a lovely experience. The service was friendly, the food was tasty, the prices were value for money and the ambiance was comfortable. They even put up with us when we got a little loud and gave us each a glass of bubbles... More

Decided to try this restaurant on a recommendation and because the Belgian version of a curry is something bland, creamy and normally omitting any spices. The Service The waiter was very pleasant but incredibly slow (ordered drinks and had to wait 10 to 15 mins for them to arrive) This speed of service continued through out the meal, at one... More
