“Still best in Gosport”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

On my 2nd visit to the Rose of Bengal and again I was not disappointed. A very warm welcome from Ikhtiar and his staff who are friendly and professional. Food excellent. Extensive menu selection especially the “connoisseur menu" plus a wide selection of quality to wines to choose from as well. You really cannot fault this restaurant in any way. If I could give it 100 stars I would. Top Class!! So for fine Indian / Bangladeshi food this is the only place to go in Gosport!!

“Not what we were used to”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

We always eat at this restaurant when in Gosport and were looking forward to some more Goan style cuisine.
It was late when we arrived, we were tired and hungry and were pleased to find the Rose open.
Maybe it was because we the last guests after a busy Saturday night but the food failed to live up to the flavour and richness that we can come to expect. The £78 bill seemed a bit rich for a very average curry.
Will be looking at Tripadvisor for other ideas next time we are in town.

“A++++ Very good curry...”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

Been to a few curry houses in gosport now and this one and saffron are the two best by far, fast service and nice food (big size).

Used to go new bangal on stoke road but your food takes forever to come and the last few times we have eaten there the food seems to have gone downhill a bit not as good as it was years ago plus it's way to small in there, plus saffron across the road is better than that now.

But overall the Rose is very nice good food and cheap'ish....

“Always excellent!!!”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

Accidently stumbled on this restaurant thinking it was a buffet. Glad to say that it is not as I think it would compromise the quality of the food we always receive.
We have dined in with the children and without on several occasions, the last being our anniversary.
We always receive a very warm welcome and staff that can not do enough for you.
Very clean and nicely set out.
We have even done the take away service which again was excellent quality.
The best tasting Indian I have used , you can taste the lovely flavours of the sauces.
Slowly working my way through the menu..

Dear Michelle,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking your precious time and posting such a complimentful review for us. Connoisseur menu is giving us the leading edge.

We do have the buffet as well on sundays and it can be prepared any day of the week on request with minimum 8 people booking. its an option and people may choose if they want to.
quality brings value which we will never compromise at the Rose of bengal.

I wish to see you and family in the bear future.

regards
Ikhtiar
