I've been wanting to try it for a while. Rebuilt from the fire, nice and shiny. Quite small actually. It was 5.30 on a Saturday night and we hadn't booked, it was busy already but we managed a table. The food was simply superb. Fresh and spicy without the 'overhang' that sometimes is part of Indian food. If you haven't... More

We have been coming to this site for almost 20 years but this was our first visit back after its long closure after fire damage. Familiar faces but an all-new and dramatically improved menu. Has upped its game to be on a par with several of the big hitters in the local Indian scene and delivers in a clean, fresh... More

Are there really any Indian restaurants in Newcastle on a par with Bradford/Birmingham? This one doesn't qualify either. Nice new shiny décor? that's where it ends. Supermarket quality Chicken Masala... powdery, over spice with frozen watery Prawns. Big Bengal tasty? small! Indian staff, depressed, Romanian lady staff pleasant....

We missed the new Bengal so much and are glad to see the new new Bengal rise up from the literal ashes. Our favourite Indian is back and incredibly is better than ever. We only had a carry out tonight and look forward to dining in, as it looks fantastic in the restaurant. The food was top notch and it... More

I've been to the New New Bengal three times since it reopened and it's simply excellent. The menu is fresh and exciting, the welcome is warmer than ever, the service has improved immeasurably and, most importantly, the food is even better than it was before the fire. The chef has a delicate touch even with big rustic dishes like Handi... More

Firstly, the managemant here have missed an opportunity by not calling this place The Flaming Bengal, but I don't hold that against them. The food here is very good - I'm not sure they're fully in their stride again since reopening but they will get there. Sometimes they seem to struggle with the demand of the retaurant customers + those... More
