A friendly restaurant with great food. It's had its Ups and downs over the years but the current team have been in place for two years and they are great.

We used to go here often but recently fallen out of love. Our last takeaway, June 16 was cold & for an Indian didn't have much taste. Rice was very dry & Naans burnt. May give it a try in future but trying out other places for now

Ate here at the end of January. A small restaurant, with amazing food! The service was a bit on the slow side, but it was busy. The restaurant was full & plenty of people coming in to get a take out. The food was delicious, hot & adequately priced. We will definitely be popping in again!

I've eaten at most Indian restaurants in Aldershot / Fboro / Fnam over the years and this is one I have returned to most (most are average at best). The banquet night is great value and they don't quibble like some other places over banquet menu choices.

Went to this restaurant last night for a meal. 5 of us in total. It was a banquet night and we asked if we could share 3 banquet meals between 5 people - they wouldn't let us do this. Also if you have leftovers they will charge an extra £5 to box them up for you!! Never had this issue... More

There is a great pub 50 metres away - have a drink before going in or coming out of the restaurant. There's great service with a smile! But ... the food here was very lacking in both flavour and presentation. The starters were unrecognisable to what we understand from a traditional Indian restaurant and the mains were so lacking with... More

After a takeover at our previous 'go to' takeaway that went downhill we decided to try the Bengal Lancer. We'd eaten there previously and enjoyed the food and service. Well, what an amazing takeaway :-) (yes, you do have to collect but I can assure you it's worth it!). I'm always a bit suspect when ordering takeaways from a dine-in... More

A nice clean place lovely to see linen on tables and staff very helpful and nice. There is a very good selection from the menu and I liked the House Wine. The food is very tasty but not very spicy which is ideal for me as I don't like a mouth burner. The price is very good too. We had... More

I'd heard many rave reviews from family and friends about the 'Bengal Lancer,' so I decided to go for a meal with my dad and sister. We were shocked by the poor quality of the food when it arrived. I would describe the curry they served as more like broth or stew than curry, which tasted nothing like the dishes... More
