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.

Lovely food and such a warm welcome at this fab restaurant. I wanted a dish that was no longer on the menu and they were good enough to make it for me. Tandoori lamb chops are the most tender and tastiest that I've had any where and my husband had an amazing chicken dansak. They have recently had a re-furb... More

Having not been here for a while, we thought we would give it another chance. We walked in to see obvious changes. The interior had been totally renovated making the space a lot more welcoming. Loved the Taj Mahal picture on the wall, but not sure what was going on with the strange gold lame everywhere - very bizarre. Staff... More

I lived in the curry packed city of Leicester for four years, so I know a good curry. A lot of curry houses later, I can say hand on heart I've new had a bad curry here. Friendly, happy staff, great service, great food. Naganzi chicken is awesomely hot! Can't wait until the weekend, curry night!
