We tried Alamin for the first time after a few of my close friends had mentioned it in the past. There was a group of 4 of us, we didn't book and came out on a Saturday they were busy but managed to get us in. We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table, drinks and poppadoms... More

We turned up on a Friday evening, and despite having bookings they were able to find us a table. We are vegetarian so we were very happy to see that they have such a varied menu. The service was excellent, as the staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was good both in taste and value. Will visit again.

After reading good reviews we decided to give them a chance. Upon arrival we were told to wait, despite the restaurant only having 3 occupied tables. After waiting we were showed to a table awkwardly in the middle of others despite there being free ones elsewhere. 20 minutes in the waiter was clearly struggling or perhaps oblivious that we had...

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
