What is wrong with all you people who've given it good reviews??
The food isn't authentic, it's tasteless. The service is slow and the prices a shocking £10 more than you would be paying in a proper curry house, if there's just 2 of you eating.
We were told by a friend (his opinion is no longer valued!) that Bengal was really good. As we live just 5 mins walk away we thought we should give it a try, so we did last night. My tikka masala was an orange yellow colour and tasted more like a korma. My girlfriend ordered a bhuna, which tasted like burnt garlic and nothing else. The garlic naan however, didnt taste of anything.
If you are looking for good value and great taste and service, go to Akmals in Hyde park. If you want something authentic, Mumtaz on Clarence Dock. DO NOT GO TO BENGALS, UNLESS YOU ARE THE TYPICAL ENGLISH TYPE THAT IS FRIGHTENED OF EATING A REAL CURRY.
PS. We didn't see a single Indian eating in here last night, and that's always a bad sign.
