“Not brilliant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

My partner and I went last night, we didn't book. This restaurant has just been redecorated after a fire and is very nice, modern and clean. We asked for a table for two and we were asked if we had booked? It wasn't full at 9.30pm but we were placed by the door entrance, where opposite people can sit and wait for their takeaways, which isn't really a nice table as you are being watched while you eat. We had two drinks, pompedomes, which were really nice then ordered the following chicken jelfrezie, chicken tikka bhuna, suppose to have fresh onions, tomatoes and coriander but unfortunately when our meals arrived they tasted like a strong paste and couldn't find them in our dishes and our dishes tasted both the same, the jelfrezie was suppose to have some spicy heat to it but was bland and had 1 green chilli placed on top, saffron rice (which is pilau rice) was dry and hard, mushroom pilau rice had plenty of mushrooms but was greasy, keema nan was very thin and hardly any spicy meat inside, peshwari nan thin. Service was quick but we didn't enjoy our meals and found some of the staff very abrupt, very quick to get your order and then for you to go. We were given a complimentary drink which was nice, but overhaul we were very disappointed. They do have a very varied menu and if you book a table in advance they give a 10% discount. Not the best curry experience for £33.80 and we will not be going back.

“Lovely Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

The Bangla Lounge is a lovely restaurant with great food and great service. The interior is really welcoming and modern. We will either eat in at the restaurant or order a take-away from here. On a few rare occasions, we have sometimes received a wrong meal in our takeaway order but I guess that's an easier mistake to make with how busy they are! The meals are delicious and the naan breads are the best I've ever tasted! We will definitely continue dining here in the future.

My wife and I eat here nearly every weekend either in the restaurant or takeaway. The staff are awesome and the food's even better.

Went as a group of 13 for birthday celebration. The restaurant decor is very nice and can accommodate groups easily. Waiters are very helpful and friendly. Food was an excellent standard with a lot of choice. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend. Worthy of five stars

As a regular visitor, the quality and service here are consistently good. The special offers are enticing, and welcoming. Value for money is very good
