We have used the Bengal for years. The food is better than your average Indian cuisine. The quality of the ingredients is good so no chewy meat. The vegetarian food is also good. We are lucky to have such a good restaurant on our doorstep.

Nice restaurant but the staff seemed to be completely preoccupied with the very busy takeaway side of the business. Had excellent prawn dish and lovely naan but very strange bright red chicken dish. Will continue my quest for an excellent Indian meal.
