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.

I went here for take away. The service isn't great, the food is poor and that's if you actually get what you ordered. And when you call to say they have sent the wrong food, they do nothing to rectify their mistake. Will not be...back. And when you want to pay by card, they like a ask do you not have cash in the house? Not great guys.More

We ear a lot of Indian food and generally we decide where we go based on the dish we want that day. This restaurant takes a lot of that decision away with their ‘Exquisite dishes’. We had the Shahi Rogan Josh and the Butter chicken...tikka, both were superb, as was the Chicken chat starter.More

After many years in Bangor I found the best curry house in the town. We have been frequent visitors to the Star of Bengal, the food is amazing and the staff are very accommodating. If you fancy a good curry and good service you will...not be disappointed at the Star of Bengal, it is definitely a hidden gem!More

Ordered a takeaway lamb jalfrezi last weekend and was very impressed. I am a curry fan and have tasted a few curries in my time! The lamb was melt in your mouth and all the flavours were well balanced. Lovely, smiley service from the lady....Thank you!More

We have tried a few Indian restaurants in town and they are all good, but if I was to choose one that stands out it definitely is this one, and the fact it’s BYO is a bonus. Jay & Sam can not do enough to...help and will cook to your liking. 5 star plus.More

Delicious food. Excellent value for money. Efficient service. The decor is not the best but everything is cooked to order so the food makes up for that. Staff are very friendly and pleasant. We will be back more often.

Placed an order for delivery, the app does not let you had notes so my husband rang to make sure my chicken tikka kebab was in Peshwari Naan and also Masala Sauce. The guy on the phone confirmed the order with him. When the food...arringer, no peshwari naan and a completely dry kebab, no sause at all. Husband rang to complain and they said the naan was peshwari and he had made it himself, well mate yo need to go to a culinary school and learn properly cause there was absolutely no coconut in that naan. He alsobecame quite rude saying he was not told about the masala sauce and basically tough. What has happen to the Star of Bengal, the food used to be amazing and the service used to be second to none. WILL NEVER BE BACKMore

I visited tonight with my husband and son for the early bird menu as advertised in the Local Shopper as £8.99 Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Then most things we ordered carried a 50p or £1.00 surcharge. When I paid the bill the early bird was...£10.95 and with the extra charges could have been ordered off the menu at practically the same price. The charges need to be printed on an early bird menu. We arrived at 5.40 and were greeted by the young waiter asking if we had booked, we replied no, did we need to book, his reply was yes. We were the only 3 in the restaurant until 7.10 when another 4 arrived. The starters were good, the main courses just ok.More

Had a table booked for 8pm last Friday night (20 Sept.) for my wife and I and 4 friends. We arrived at one minute to eight to be greeted with a rude and loud, "Your late!" from the person who appeared to be the chef....Somewhat perplexed I replied that we were not late as our table was booked for 8pm. Another member of staff then said our table had been booked for 6.45. Where they had got this from is anybody's guess but rather than accept an error had been made the 3 staff continued to argue and insist we were late. Intriguingly there wasn't even another person in the restaurant at the time. Such was the rudeness of the staff that once we had been shown to a table upstairs and saw the uninviting decor of the place we quickly changed our minds and left the restaurant. This was our first visit to the Star of Bengal and unquestionably our last.More
