excellent nan breads, and tandoori dishes, the sizzler had a lovely smell of lime about it, lovely Pistachio Kulfi deserts, Bangladeshi restaurants such as this take far more pride in their food and service than their Kashmiri counterparts - well done!

Probably one of the most delicious curries we've ever eaten! The chicken was juicy & sauce perfect. Thank you star of Bengal, keep it up X

Good old "Indian" food, but rather lacking in creativity. The main dishes were a bit too sweet. The service was OK

Haven't been here for a while because, to be honest, it went downhill for a while, however I'm pleased to say that they're back on form, my dansak was lovely as was my hubby's madras. We'll be back more often now.

We had a takeaway this evening whilst visiting family. We have a very good Indian restaurant where we live on the Essex coast and the Star of Bengal was as good? Their tikka masala sauce is the best I've tasted and the chicken was succulent....More

I was looking around Darlington for a good place to eat and found a real diamond at the Star of Bengal. Doesn't look in a great area but the food was fantastic - I can't believe the place wasn't packed out - everyone should go!...More
