OK, if you are looking for glitz, no-one who knows your name or face, bland food, fawning waiters eager for you to vacate your table then The Alamin is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a genuinely courteous welcome, staff willing to engage in friendly conversation, excellent food and value for money then you are... More

The Alamin is always the restaurant we go back to, again and again. The refurbishment has smartened the decor up but the welcome is always as warm as ever! The food really is consistently excellent. Portions are of a good size and prices good value. (3 of us ate today, with drinks £46). The garlic nan is the best we... More

We used to come to the Alamin a few years ago and always commented on how traditional it looked compared to all the other contemporary restaurants that were popping up everywhere on Tavistock street Bedford. This time we were amazed that the place had undergone a complete refurb! from top to bottom the place was 10x better looking and more... More

A meal at the alamin never fails to impress. We like good quality, tasty & spicy food. Starters were amazing & main dishes were the best eaten in a long time at a Bedford restaurant. Staff are very warm & welcoming and service was brilliant too. Will Definitely visit again soon.

Alamin has been going for many years now and we had tried it before, but it was never one of our chosen places to eat. However another restaurant owned by the same people had been a firm favourite and we were gutted when it closed down a while ago. So imagine our excitement when we had an email from the... More

There is plenty of free parking very close to the restaurant with a multi story car park nearby as well. The restaurant is not very large but it was fine with the tables not too close together. We shared a babori mix for starters and that was all very good apart from the samosa being rather tough. The chicken Shathkora... More

Small restaurant, but friendly staff & the best Bengal fish jalfrezi. Well worth a visit to eat this dish.

Used to eat here often, but became bored with same brown sauces and too much oil. Revisited twice in recent months (don't eat out very often). We were all impressed with each dish: no floating oil, fresh okra, heightened flavours in every curry ordered, each dish was quite distinct from the other, whether it was a main meat or vegetable...

This is our favourite Indian restaurant in Bedford. It has dishes with a range of flavour profile from a hot and sour Vegetable Dhansak to a refreshing Bhindi bhaji. What's great is you can ask anything to be cooked lower fat and still get great tasting food.
