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.

Bengal Spice 6 St. Brelades Place , is in the Jersey farm area of St. Albans. Not to busy in restaurant , nice and warm inside and was promptly seated and drinks order taken a few minutes later. like most places phone orders always being taken so service was not to fast as only one person front of house, but he very polite an apologetic . we did not mind as no rush for us. Food served was good , minor gripe was sauces with poppadoms seemed watered down. otherwise really good food all round. Would def return.

We usually get a takeaway but occasionally dine inside and have always enjoyed the food. It's small and cosy inside and the staff are always friendly. When we get takeaways, the delivery is always quick

Visited on Saturday 21st Jan. No need to book (even though I did ring ahead) as it was empty. Restaurant is a small unit in a shopping precinct and yards from a tesco express. The lack of customers meant we were seen to promptly and never made to feel uncomfortable, as can be the case with some places who try too hard on a quiet night. Food: bang on and reasonably priced. Service: quick and polite. Would I go back? Yes, but as I live in Wolverhampton I doubt it will be any time soon. Would I recommend? Yes. They seemed surprised when I left a £5 tip. I will add, that whilst there were only 2 other couples in there when we left, we noticed this restaurant did a lot of take-away and delivery orders proving that it's doing something right.

Went for meal new years eve with my partner and daughter. Table was booked for 6.30 pm arrived a little after and was promptly seated and served with drinks and poppa doms with in 10 minutes we also ordered our main meal so sat and ate poppadoms and waited for our food, then at 7.30 they said sorry they were busy and our food will be served soon. Ten minutes later the food arrived only to find it was warm at which point we the waiter he called the manager who then appollagise and said he would take care of it. After about 6 minutes he returned with meal apon which it was only like warm we pointed this out to him he became unhappy with us so we left also my daughter went to the toilet only to find it unusable my partner went see it and said it was disgusting worst experience ever. We then left R Bruce

Very pleasant atmosphere inside, promptly seated and served. Food was excellent, had onion bhaji and lamb chops - very very tasty. If the restaurant reads this - you need to start stocking 0% beers - but that didn't spoil the enjoyment of the restauarnt and the food. Recommended!

The food at Bengal Spice is really delicious. They have all of the standard menu items and lots of chef's specialities. The staff always go out of their way to make our visit a happy one. We like to eat here or get a takeaway regularly.

Tonight we placed a takeaway order through the Bengal Spice's own website. We received a confirmation email to say our order would be with us at 7:06pm this evening. At 7:30 I rang Bengal Spice only to find out they had lost our order. Moreover, they could only offer us a 10% discount and a 45 (yes, 45!!) minute wait to replace it. I hope they feel this is acceptable and hope they resolve the issue before they leave another family disappointed and with no food on their mother's birthday! Do not order from here to avoid disappointment!

Four of us were here on 15/6/19 & had a great evening. Wonderful food (best Indian meal in a long time), friendly staff & good atmosphere. The fact we can walk here is great. No need for a taxi! If you live in the Marshalswick/Jersey Farm area & not tried it yet then do! I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Bengal Spice for a lovely evening & great food! We will be back soon 😀

We ordered a delivery last night and ordered a selection of dishes with our friends. We ordered online which was time consuming but this was our choice to receive a discount. The delivery was on time, food was hot and delicious! The foods were flavoursome and of good portions. We always order from our local Indian and our friends were also very complimentary of the food! Thank you.

Have eaten in this restaurant several times, food is always consistently good, authentic flavours, always hot and good sized portions, particularly like the king prawn madras and chicken tikka masala. Very friendly staff and like to eat in local establishments

We went to Bengal Spice for a family birthday meal. We were made to wait a long while for our order to be taken. After asking someone to take our order, we then waited over an hour for our food to arrive. We wouldn't have minded if it was incredibly busy, however we were the only ones in the restaurant! There were numerous takeaway collections who came in but this shouldn't have taken them well over an hour! We were not offered more drinks in this time and there was no compensation at the end of it to make us feel better. We mentioned to the staff several times that we were waiting such a long time but they still didn't respond. The food was delicious when it eventually came. We were all very happy with our meals, except the mix up on the naan. But it really shouldn't have taken so long! This restaurant is really designed for a takeaway rather than eat in. They are really trying too hard to do both and should concentrate on just their takeaway service. Well done on the food. But your in house service needs some serious work! Thank you.

I visited my fiance last week and my fiance was ill so I decided to get a takeaway for us. So ordered our takeaway through Just Eat. I myself ordered a Chot Poti, Chicken Balti, Chapati and a Stuffed naan and I ordered Tandoori King Prawn and Tandoori mix Grill. Once we got the delivery I soon started unpacking it as I was hungry and my fiance haven't eaten anything for a day. The Chicken Balti was oily and tasteless, although I ended up eating it as I was hungry. I was furious when it came to my fiance because my fiance couldn't eat then King Prawn because it was oily and unseasoned, first I thought maybe she's is ill that's why she's saying it's unseasoned then I tried it, it was awful which she felt sick with an empty stomach. Then I kind of forced her to try the Tandoori Mix Grill, same thing again lack of seasoning and tasteless. As it was 12 am and everything was shut so we had to starved till morning. SHAME ON YOU
