This was our second visit to this restaurant and it just gets better. The food is fantastic, Indian with a twist, the usual dishes but with added flavours, such great choices and excellently prepared and served. The staff are so attentive and eager to ensure your evening is perfect. They offer advice on what dishes will suit your taste and... More

Having had a few local mediocre takeaways locally, we ordered a takeaway from the Royal Bengal with some trepidation. However, we struck gold this time. We were really pleased with the quality of the food (delicious) the very reasonable prices and the prompt delivery. Our delivery driver was friendly and courteous. We'll definitely make this place a favourite of ours.

Myself and my partner visited this fantastic restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. The whole experience from start to finish was first class. The vast menu was explained in great detail and the dishes certainly didn't disappoint. If your looking for authentic cuisine then don't miss the chance to eat here. Well done Royal Bengal.

Every time I visit, it is always greeted with welcome smiles AND they take the time to get to know you by first name. I used to avoid dishes that they serve, until they encouraged me with their complete knowledge of their culture and food blends to try so many more dishes now. I love going in there, the food,...

We've visited the Royal Bengal about five times this year, coming over from Cambridge whenever possible to Woodbridge. The food has been exceptional on all occasions. Last nights we booked at 5.30 when the restaurant opened, for a table at 8pm. On arrival we were shown to our table, from then on it seemed to go downhill! It was ages... More

Although we did not have a sit down we decided to have a cozy curry evening after work and a long week. After waiting an hour and a half for the meal to be delivered (starving by then), the meal was tasty but one should expect that after paying two arms and a full leg for it. Good food, a... More

Booked a table for 8 friends and had to drive to Woodbridge to pay a £10 a head deposit for the privilege . Odd but we can understand if people often fail to turn up. 2 friends failed to arrive due to illness so 6 of us ate a nice meal albeit the service was a little curt at times... More

Thank you Longboy801 for you're feedback. I would like to query a few things you have mentioned in your review. When your partner called to book a table for eight people we explained a deposit would be needed and why. When she came in to the restaurant she was quite abrupt and couldn't understand why a deposit was needed. After... More
