Great reception from the very attentive staff treated like long lost family, although only a matter of weeks since our last visit. Staff also remember the minor details making you feel the most important part of the occasion. Food was superb, which is becoming a given. Don't look elsewhere, this place and the people are the best dine out experience... More

We went early at 6pm and they were easily able to accomodate us - seated straight away and cracked on with the poppadums and chutneys/onions/lime chilli etc. Really fresh and tasty. Main was Chicken Madras, Pilau Rice, Peshwari Naan and Onion Bhaji - all great - not quite spicy enough for the Madras, but very tasty. Decor is dated and... More

I have been going to the Bengal for years. The staff are extremely polite and helpful, they remember all their customers. The food is outstanding, without a doubt the best Indian in our area.. If you want something not on the menu, you can ask for food how you like it, and they are happy to oblige. I just wouldn't... More

I telephoned in advance to reserve a table for four with extra space to accommodate one of our party who is disabled. Whilst I was parking the car the others went straight to the restaurant and I found them being seated in a cramped corner. When I complained they moved us, but it shouldn't have been necessary to complain especially... More

I booked a table for 6 people a week before my visit for a family meal. I especially asked for a table that was not near the door. On arrival I was allocated a table right by the front door. If it were not a special meal with guests I would have walked away. I wish I had done that.... More

We waited almost 30 minutes for a menu and a drinks order to be taken and the waiter was quite rude! The food was ok, it taste like pataks from the supermarket! I am shocked to have later discovered that the resturant has a food hygiene rating for 2! Wish I had known this before !! Wont be coming here... More

Went for a Saturday evening out with friends who live in the area. Very busy but proprietor and staff cheerful and friendly and no complaints about speed of service. The menu is probably not very different from many other Indian restaurants around the country but, applying the principle "if it's not broke don't fix it", nothing wrong with that. Interior... More

Great Indian, good food, menu and staff are great, if busy will try and get you in, but won't overfill to make service too slow. Takeaway very good as well.
