Description: Drawing inspiration from Queen Victoria's role as the Empress of India, this colonial style lounge is known throughout Victoria for its authentic curry buffet and signature cocktail menu. While new restaurants and lounges appear in Victoria regularly, The Bengal Lounge is a favorite of residents and visitors alike. Overlooking our stately gardens, the richly appointed Bengal Lounge offers not only a delicious curry lunch and dinner buffet but also an impressive international a la carte menu. Cocktail and martini aficionados will appreciate our vast selection of signature drinks. The Bengal Lounge is a licensed lounge and all guest must be 19 or older.

Visited twice, never had the food. Very nice place to stop and have a drink in a very pleasant, almost elegant environment. Cocktails expensive; beer at an OK price. Both times went outside of normal dining hours, and they accommodated our desire for a leisurely drink.

The food and service here are outstanding. We love Indian food, and my mouth is watering at the recollection of the flavours and smells of the delicious meal we had here.
Our server was wonderful, and the ONLY negative thing I could say is that I found the selection of drinks a little limited. but you should definitely eat here, and don't have steak, have the curry!

One of our favorite meals in Victoria was the wonderful Indian buffet at the Fairmont Empress Hotel's Bengal Lounge. The setting takes you back in time and the food was one of the best Indian meals I've enjoyed. Pair the meal with some creative, theme-driven cocktails and enjoy a relaxing evening.
