Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We love the food from the Bengal Lancer! Tonight’s takeaway of Lamb Dhansak and Chicken Jalfrazi was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended.

Hands down the WORST food I have ever attempted to eat in my life. Looked and smelled like vomit. Honestly a pathetic attempt at cooking. What's more infuriating is they must know it. My partner ordered at the restaurant and brought it home for us...to eat. As soon as we started dishing up, the absence of quality was obvious. We had a taste of everything and felt immediately sick. The korma was watery, gritty, anaemic and bland, the 'king prawn' balti was like chewing balls of rubber in tomato soup and oil. What's worse is we immediately called up to complain and get a refund.. and they closed early. They obviously knew it was awful and probably didn't want the hassle. But this is not over. I would give a minus rating if I could. Where's Gordon Ramsay when you need him..More

Reading the reviews did not inspire confidence but as we were staying opposite we thought we would give it a go. You should not steer clear of this place because actually it’s OK. The food is not as strongly spiced as you might expect but...what is most noticeable is that it is not very salty. These may be factors that make Indian food more palatable to some.More

We tried to book this restaurant. They are only doing a takeaway service and were quite rude, almost ushering us out.

Quite possibly the worst Indian we have all had in a long time! Not visited for a while due to poor experience before lockdown but thought we would give benefit of the doubt. Gutted we did. We ordered 4 mains, sides and rice and every...meal was poor - dry chicken, Korma sauce watery, madras no heat at all and poppodoms chewy (like they were the day befores!). Should have listened to the gut - won’t be back.More

We tried a takeaway from here whilst visiting Tetbury. Despite the reviews we wanted to give this place a shot. Unfortunately the quality of food was awful, we had to dispose of most of it as it was so unpleasant. We ordered a chicken achari...and chicken madras. The achari was horrific, it tasted as though someone had taken a chicken curry and just added copious amounts of jiff lemon juice to it- not like any other achari I have ever eaten. The madras was less offensive but lacked flavour. The chicken in both curries was so tough it must of been reheated several times. We do hope this restaurant can improve as it is a great location and would probably have a good monopoly in the area.More

We ordered chicken chaat puri starters and chicken dansak for the mains, with naan bread and mushroom rice. We love those choices usually, which is why we ordered them on our week away. Sadly, they were disappointing. The chicken in the chaat was dry and...the sauces for both choices were bland. We have given one star for the service, very friendly. The other is for the naan bread which was actually very nice.More

We were staying locally when we can eat out but outside only so the option of a takeaway really appealed. We had a clear view from the apartment we were staying in and just saw a co to his line of people coming to collect...their takeaway. We decided to give it a try and found the service, food and staff all good; next time we stay, this will be on our list for sure.More

Hello, yes they do and the best Indian I've been too, my friend lives in London but always when she comes to visit asks if we can have Indian as she says the "Indians in London do not come close to how tasty our Indian Is!"
