There are three sit down Indian Restaurants in Donington and one take-away only but in our opinion The Rose of Bengal is by far the best for food service and great value. The menu is extensive and we haven't come across a single dish which is not authentic and tasty. Service is friendly and efficient and the take away service... More

Castle donington has a selection of restaurants where you can get a curry, but the rose is, in our opinion, the best. Generous portions, lovely staff and high quality food. The takeaway we had also had complimentary popadoms and pickles which is a nice touch, and extra rice!

We went in for a meal and although the restaurant wasn't busy the food was excellent and the service was top class. we were offered their special priced deal but allowed us to swap and change for an additional small amount of money. Service was very good and the staff had the time to actually talk to us

My family and I visit the Rose of Bengal on a regular basis and, if we can't, we get a takeaway every week. The service is outstanding and we are always made to feel so welcome by Hannan, Parvez and team. The surroundings are modern and comfortable (although we still loved it before the refurb!) and the food is absolutely... More

We received a home delivery from the Rose last week. The food was delivered quickly, hot and really delicious. The curries where really well flavored and as described- medium strength. My lamb dish was really nice and soft, not at all chewy. I would highly recommend this restaurant -enjoy!!

The Rose is fast becoming Donington's top Indian restaurant. It's clean and comfortable and has a very extensive menu. Unlike some places it doesn't leave you feeling over full either. Portions are a good size but not dripping in fat, so you feel well fed but not over faced. They also still have Kingfisher on draught. All round a good... More
