“Great food & friendly service”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

This was my second visit to this small Indian restaurant in Devizies. You are met with both a clean modern decor and friendly staff. The service was prompt, the food well presented and tasty. Cobra and Kingfisher are both on draught, what more could you ask for? Yes of course reasonable price; you get that too.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I was introduced to the TOB several months ago by friends, visiting on a Tuesday night (Discount Night). I now love the place and visit at least once a month. the staff are very friendly and attentive. The food I have tasted is excellent and anyone visiting Devizes should not miss this little gem of a restaurant. So much so I have just booked for tonight (08/07/14). I live in Melksham which is 6 miles away and has 3 of its own Indian Restaurants and 1 takeaway, but I would rather go to Devizes due to price and taste.

“Nasty member of staff”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Have been to this restaurant a couple of times, food OK, my chicken Korma was boiled chicken in a sauce although my spinach side was very tasty. My problem with this place on Saturday night was that it was very busy and tempers and attitude of some of the waiters were frayed. One member of staff (the one taking the orders with his tablet, obviously felt himself to be very important hah) had a go at a younger member of staff twice whilst we were there. He shouted and pointed his finger and hand slapped his forehead at this young man. I found this quite upsetting, he should have taken the young man to one side and explained the problem instead of shouting at him in the middle of the restaurant (right next to us). Def not going there again and my heart goes out to the young man he shouted at, if I was his mother I would be over there today and give the brute a dressing down..

ManagerTOB, Manager at Taste of Bengal, responded to this review, 10 July 2014
Dear customer,

Please accept our deepest gratitude for your valuable feedback and sincere apology as your experience with us might not have fulfilled your expectations. However, as you have mentioned, that particular night was extremely busy, as a result some of our newest, inexperienced staff was overwhelmed with the environment. We understand that, it might seem the expression you have observed was not compatible with the best of our service and numerous positive feedback from our valued customers here would support our view in this regard. Nonetheless, we would like to inform you that the incident has been investigated and assure you that none of our staff has been subjected to any inconsiderate behavior. This explanation is not to demonstrate your point is incorrect but to emphasis on the issue of interpretation of certain behavior from a different cultural point of view which might appear inconsistent. Regardless, necessary step has been put into place to prevent any such incident in the future. In addition, we would like to invite you to our restaurant and let us have another opportunity to rectify your complain and demonstrate the service and food that we take great pride at The Taste of Bengal and can assure you, your experience with us would be second to none which all of our customers has positively experienced.

We look forward to see you soon at our restaurant.

Best Regards

Manager, Taste of Bengal
