After show dinnerWe went her after a matinee show in town. I can honestly say that I was very impressed with the building layout, the food presentation, the taste of the food. All the staff where polite and professional. I will be going back next time I am in Leeds.
ExceptionalThe service was absolutely exceptional, food was exquisite. I was recommended this restaurant by a relative who had used the take away service, myself and my partner went for our anniversary to eat in, from the moment we walked in we were made to feel so welcome, all the staff were really attentive and always had a smile on their dial. The food was flavoursome and generous portions. Would highly recommend....if I could give more stars I would
I only discovered Bengal Brasserie nearing the end of my time on the Hyde Park/Burley border. The student area, I find, really does lack many genuinely decent curry houses. Out of the dozens I can think of off the top of my head, only a handful really pleases and satisfies the curry craving.
The decor is very modern inside the restaurant, and instantly, you can see that it is very popular with both locals and students alike. The menu is wide, offering your standard curry favourites, as well as other 'specialities'. I opted for a special, and I was certainly not disappointed. The flavours were good.
There was just one thing that I and my boyfriend were not really sure of about the place. It certainly wasn't the lack of custom, nor the staff- who were very welcoming indeed. It may well have been the lack of complimentary popadoms at the start of the meal. It is slightly more expensive than your average curry (only just), particularly being so close to Hyde Park. Although the food is clearly made with more care and very tasty, my dish tasted very similar to my boyfriends, prompting the thought that they use the same sauce for everything. With that in mind, I would suggest that you go in a group, to disprove this theory, or to the buffet they serve up on Sunday night, to sample more of their flavours.
Quite simply, I've lived in Leeds for 10 years now and have not found a better Indian. The curries are consistently lovely whether you eat in or get a takeaway. And if you go and eat in, the staff are always very cheery and happy to help with anything. I've even been in a couple of times and they've offered us a free shot at the end of the meal - and not because anything was wrong - just because they're lovely! In fact after countless visits and takeaways I think the only time anything was wrong was that they got one order wrong when we were eating in on a really busy night and we'd ordered a good 12 or so meals. And even then they were very apologetic and sorted it very quickly. Love the Bengal!
