First visit to the bay of bengal. Will definitley be going back.We had not booked and despite being busy was given a table within 10 minutes.The first thing that strikes you is the friendliness of the staff.When our main meals arrived ,one was missing.They rectified the error immediately and the proprietor provided a free round of drinks for the four of us.We are seasoned indian restauranteurs and have never come across this before.After our meal (which was delicious)they provided my son with a free chocolate dessert.When our bill arrived, they had not charged for the missing meal.We could have easily walked out without pointing this out ,but because of the generosity and efficiency we had experienced,we felt obliged to pay.Not many restaurants have that effect on you.Excellent food,outstanding service.

We've been promising to visit since the opening as we live fairly close by. Was quite disappointed though. We went quite early on a Saturday night and the first thing we noticed when we entered the restaurant was a strange smell. It was similar to a very strong scented candle but not a good one. Once our noses had adjusted to the smell we were shown to our seats. Décor is modern but there was not much atmosphere. It took a while for the staff to take drinks orders and even longer for the food. We commented on the lack of personality and interaction of the staff. The owner came in after a while and he appeared to be giving one of the waiters a real ticking off behind the bar; nice to hear!! He did not bring any friendliness or charm with him either. When will restaurants realise that staff need to do more than taking your order in a grumpy way!

Food arrived and it was OK, standard stuff, nothing special. It could have been hotter (temperature wise).

So all in all we just don't think it is anything special. Won't rush back.

The Bay of Bengal has been open for a couple of years now and it has become our favourite Indian restaurant in Sheffield. Howard the owner really looks after us and my parents go at least once a week. The Sunday carvery is worth a try, the western carvery with an Indian twist but make sure you book so that they cater for you. Once a month they have a tasting evening where you can try different things you may never try before, again very good. They do one of the best prawn Pathias I have had. Overall, a great restaurant, good location, good friendly service and good atmosphere. Give it a go if you haven't before.

Easy to get to by car, bus or tram. Loads of car parking. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Menu is not bad, food is just above average. Pricing is good to. Only downside is curry spice is close by and ten times better. Do yourself a favour and visit them

From taking your booking you always receive excellent service. We have been a number of times and the food is always very good nothing is a problem and always willing to help you decide what dishes you would like,and never feel rushed. Would defiantly recommend.
