“Fantastic meal again”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We've been going to The Bengal Lounge since it opened and have never been disappointed, whether we have just popped in to pick up a takeaway or eaten in the restaurant. The service and food is always first class.

Friendly, helpful staff whose aim is to make sure you have a great time. We now take all friends and relatives when they are here to visit.

We called in tonight and took advantage of the new thali night which is on Mondays and Tuesdays, an absolutelty first class idea by the restaurant, poppadoms and chutneys, choose any starter, 2 currys and it comes served beautifully presented on a grat thali plate with bombay aloo plain pilau and naan all for £9.95.

Fantastic value for money and well worth a visit, by far the best curry house in the county. An absolute must to visit if you've never been before.

“Consistently fabulous everytime”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We are regulars of the Bengal Lounge, visiting two or three times a month. The food is consistently good, the service friendly and efficient. Sunday and Wednesday Banquet evenings are superb value as are Thali nights on Monday and Tuesday. An all together pleasant eating experience with authentic freshly cooked food.

“Fantastic food and service.”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Have been coming here since 2003 when it was Rajah's Palace takeaway.

Never had a bad meal from here and it's always of really great quality.
The do a Fab dinner menu on a Sunday and Wednesday for only £9.95 too.

Easily the best indian restaurant in Co. Durham.

Staff are great and look after you well.

Highly recommend and just wish i still lived in Aycliffe so i could go more often.

Nice atmosphere inside, can get busy at peak times. Have eaten here lots of times, staff always very friendly and helpful. Food is great quality. They are happy to do half portions for the kids. Would definately go back.

“Handy Indian”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Used to be just a takeaway until about 18 months ago when to everyone's surprise, a restaurant opened. The takeaways were always very good and the retaurant food is also very good indeed. Its unusual location makes it very 'local' but its good value, good food and good service.
