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.

Reviewed 24 October 2023 via mobile

We have ordered from Bangla quite a few times for a take out. The staff are always friendly over the phone and it usually arrives within the hour which is great. The past few times we have ordered, we have requested the curries to be...extra spicy. The flavours are all there but unfortunately there's no spice to it. I get the chicken tikka garlic balti and asked if this could be done extra spicy but even the kids tasted it and said it was mild. The spinach and cheese starter is amazing and would definitely recommend. We unfortunately won't be ordering from here next time as despite the curries tasting nice it just doesn't have that kick to it.More

Positives: The food quality was good. The staff were friendly, gave us a warm welcome, and spent a lot of time chatting with my friend about the restaurant and food. The restaurant itself was clean, and linen tablecloths and napkins were present indicating fine-dining. Small...customer parking area, and on-street parking nearby Negatives: I checked the Bangla Lounge website for pricing before reserving a table. The prices on their website (and linked to on TripAdvisor) were reasonable - VERY different from the actual prices. For example, Chicken or Lamb Harialy was £7.50 online, but £12 in the restaurant... and the website price was NOT the takeaway menu. In the UK, it is illegal for customers not to see a restaurant menu BEFORE they are seated. I dined with a friend, and here was my order (website and actual prices): Onion bhaji: £2.95 -> £4.50 Chicken tikka Korai £7.25 -> £10.50 Peshwari nan: £2.75 -> £3.75 Total bill according to their website: £12.95 Actual bill: £18.75! For this reason only, I have given the Bangla Lounge 3 stars. My friend was NOT concerned with the price hike, and wanted to give Bangla 5 stars. We ordered water, which arrived in a large bottle. This was not topped-up when empty. Other: We received a bill which included "Basmati rice"... a dish we neither ordered nor received. However, we had chapattis, and these were not on the bill. They don't have a licence to sell alcohol, so take your own. My friend was happy and will return. I will not return purely because I can't justify the high price.More

After reading good reviews about this place we thought we’d give it a try, and traveled an hour from North Yorkshire to find the real deal. From the welcome as soon as we entered to the excellent food and service, we were totally impressed. The...starters and mains were very tasty and cooked to perfection. IMO this is one of the best Asian restaurants around. We’d recommend it.More

It's always a really great experience here. We went on a Friday evening and although there were some tables, as it's very popular I'd recommend booking, just to be safe. I think you have to judge everywhere on each occasion and the quality has always...been high eating in here, last night however was next level. Service was really great and attentive throughout and we had poppadom's and water shortly after sitting down. It's great you can bring your own alcohol here too. Starters were freshly cooked, tasty and crispy (Fish, and Spinach Pakoras) and the mains of Lamb Jalfrezi were just incredible - really tasty, balanced and a nice spicy kick which never overpowered the flavour: a real skill. If you're feeling braver, just chop up the chilli served on top and mix it in. This place has recently won the Bangladeshi Restaurant of the Year at The Nation's Curry Awards 2023 and on this showing you really cannot deny that. Our bill was brought without asking, and we paid without asking too, which did feel like a bit like we were 'on our way' but rather that than waiting around to get someone's attention when you're ready to go. A fantastic experience.More

First time here after hearing some good things. Bright and lively atmosphere. Food was delicious with a subtle twist on your standard curry. Service was excellent despite being a busy Saturday night. Bring your own alcohol so great value for money.

We go every year at this time as its a great way to get people together to celebrate my birthday, friendship and the start a new...year. Abdul was the host with the most and looked after our table along with the other staff who were friendly and courteous. The meals were delicious, as ever and the atmosphere was brilliant.

The cake was huge and fed us all easily Thank you Abdul and the Bangla for helping to make my celebrations SpecialMore
