Fancying a "nice" curry my husband and I popped into the Royal Bengal with expectations of a taste of Asia, only to get a taste of half cooked chicken! Well , I say half cooked, let's just say not properly defrosted. You know that horrible chicken taste you get in your mouth when it has not defrosted properly? I left it to one side. I would have expected fresh chicken , but that was probably too much to expect! So little effort went into the food! My husbands chicken was overcooked and looked decidedly greenish. As did he, after consuming the offending article. (It was only an English roast chicken so no spices or spinach involved to dictate colour.) The waiters were disinterested to say the least. Everything seemed an effort and considering we drunk no alcohol, I think £40 for two was a bit steep. There was a lack of atmosphere, the decor was in dire need of a re-furb and the plastic garish flowers on the window sill, only underlined my feelings that I was in a place where no expense had been spared. (Not). Sorry to sound snobbish...but really. Suffice to say, won't be going there again. Raise the bar Royal Bengal !
