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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This popular place is good for eat in or take away. The place smelled wonderful. Had a take away and it was ready for pick up when they stated. Food was fabulous. Well worth enjoying with a drink or two.

We were on the NC500 and we had an evening in Thurso. Needed something to eat and found The Pride of Begal. Quiet unassuming place. Food was excellent and the service was very good,nothing was a problem.

We had a really nice meal in this restaurant. The menu was extensive, with lots of dishes we hadn't seen before, so we tried something different and we were not disappointed. The food was very tasty, not oily at all and plentiful. The restaurant was...busy for a Monday night, but the one guy serving didn't get flustered or anything, just happily carried on doing his job. We would definitely return, if we are in the area.More

We are touring the NC 500 and overnighting in Thurso. After looking at Trip Advisor and determining where to eat found the Pride of Bengal. We are glad we did. The menu is excellent and food was well spiced and cooked to order. All staff...were really hospitable and despite the fact we didn’t have a reservation were accommodating and found us a table. We both had great meals and thoroughly recommend this restaurant.More

This evening made a great change from other dinners. An excellent selection of dishes, beautifully spiced and well presented. Delicious. It's very busy so probably best to book. Highly recommended.

Very nice food, quickly served. Elaborate dining-card with a variety of Indian dishes. Good people, located centrally in the village. Is a far better place on the inside then you give it credit for on the first glance outside!

Found myself in Thurso for work and came across this place a short walk away from our accommodation. Through my own ignorance as much as anything, I wasn't really sure what standards to expect from an Indian restaurant in the furthest reaches of the country,...but we found some excellent food, full of flavour and good portions. Also very reasonably priced. Ended up going on two consecutive nights so I can't really give higher praise than that. The chap who hosted us, who I assume to be the proprietor, was very attentive and made us feel very welcome. Recommended highly.More

Very fast and friendly takeaway service however my friend and I ordered butter chicken and chicken tikka which both were bland, the chicken tasted like precooked chicken. We could taste the chicken more than the sauce. The butter chicken tasted like a soup. Veg pakora...was bland, didn’t taste like it had any spices. Pakora sauce tasted like a buttery cream with no spice. Spiced onions weren’t spicey. Garlic bread had no evidence of butter or garlic on it and was thick and chewey. The pilau rice was tasteless.More

Nice friendly atmosphere. Attentative polite staff. We had starters very good. We had three different curries and they were all of a very good standard and well cooked. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food and we had a good evening. We had a little...bit of a wait between courses but the food was cooked from fresh and a cooked perfectly. Definitely worth a return visit.More

Recommended as “the best curry house” by our hotel receptionist. And she wasn’t wrong. Excellent and varied selection of Bengali and more mainstream Indian dishes. Breads in particular were delicious. Will be a firm favourite when travelling the north coast again.
