We have several takeaway options in Uckfield so we thought we would give the Star of Bengal a try. The food arrived within half an hours as advised, and it was hot. We thought the food was particularly good, the chicken was tender, sauces rich...More

Food is ok, restaurant quite nice but they really hurry you through the ordering process, and are too keen to whip plates away - not really so relaxing!
