“Average Indian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Wanting a change from frites my wife and I decided to go to the Feux de Bengale for dinner. I had the meat samosas and the lamb gosht with nan bread. She had the chicken tikka, chicken dansak and pilau rice. The food was OK, however no where near as good as many curries we have had in the UK. The ingredients of the dishes were slightly different than others we have had and what you would normally expect. There were only two other tables occupied at mid evening. Unless you are desperate for a curry, give it a miss.

“Note to self: if the place is deserted there is probably a good reason”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

Our favourite Lebanese restaurant was packed and we couldn't get in, so we decided to try an indian restaurant just besides it. After all, we discovered our most favourite restaurants just by chance. The place was semi-deserted, this is usually a bad sign, but we thought that maybe it was just too late: we went for dinner at 21:45 which is kind of "late" for Brussels.

The ambiance was quite uninspiring, and the menu was sticky with food squeezed between the plastic pages. That was second sign that we should never entered such place. We had two main dishes composed by several cuts of chicken cooked in different sauces, a bottle of water costed almost 5 euros, and the food was really bad. The grilled chicken was not burned, it was literally carbonised; it was resting on a bed of what should have been onions (I guess they were, they were too burned to be sure). We left most of the food in the plates, and we will never enter in a deserted restaurant anymore.
