We had a chicken Jalfrezi and Chicken Tikka Masala . The Jalfrezi was swimming in sauce and there was hardly any peppers and only one colour. Usually you find red and yellow peppers in the curry too. It had lots of fine fine green chillies which blew my socks off. The taste was ok but not great. The chef obviously doesn't know what a jalfrezi is!

The Tikka Masala, was made with tomatos, it would have been a good sauce had it been properly spiced and seasoned as it was very very bland.

For starter we had kebabs and these were a horrendous red dye colour! Shish Kebabs are meant to be meat colour/brown not some wierd red shade - yuk!

I wouldn't recommend the food here, better than Indian Zest but not better than Dhanchora's main courses. The decor may be awful there but the food is much more authentic.

I ate here with my son this evening and will not be returning. Food was acceptable. Welcome, service and customer experience was dreadful. I didn't leave a tip for the first time in many years in any restaurant. Avoid. May have been good once upon a time.

Went for a meal here after it was recommended by a friend. There seemed to be a very unprofessional feel to it with the staff obviously discussing there social life and problems they had with people and arguments! Then the food came out and I had ordered prawns! I don't know where these prawns came from but have you ever seen a black stripe down the back of a prawn?????? I haven't come across this before but it is known as prawn poo as that is what it is and if prawns aren't cleaned and prepared properly this is what you get, it wasn't just one either there were many. If you buy Sainsburys basic prawns you don't even get this. Very disappointed and will not be returning!

Been dining at The Royal Bengal for many years. Best Indian for miles around, would not go anywhere else. Food always superb, nothing too much trouble for the staff. Thoroughly recommended

We go here whenever we want a curry in Harborough. Have tried other Indian restaurants in Harborough but this is our favourite (others are style over substance and overpriced as a result). It is a classic Indian restaurant with all the dishes you'd expect as well as some specials of their own. Staff are really pleasant and some nice touches like being given a rose at the end of the meal! Food can vary a bit to be honest, some evenings it has been incredible and others fairly ordinary. Recommend the sultana and coconut rice!
