Always very welcoming, good food and lots of choice. The environment encourages a relaxed atmosphere. Menu is vast and varied with lots to cater for everyone's choice of 'heat' in their food
Great service and fantastic meal. Didn’t feel rushed, we felt cared for and staff recognised us from the last time. Can’t wait to return again!
Fabulous food, beautifully presented. Great service. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting excellent Asian food. Very pleasant atmosphere and modern decor. Also do great takeout meals.
We recently enjoyed another evening at the Essence of Bengal. Food has always been excellent and the staff are always friendly and professional. We look forward to another visit soon.
We have been going to the Essence of Bengal for years. We have never had anything to complain about the food is always excellent & there is always a good atmosphere. The staff are very helpful & friendly, the prices are good & the beer is too. We will continue to visit the Essence of Bengal on a regular basis. Steve Ussher
Probably due to the weather the restaurant was very busy plus they were doing takeouts, but the food was as good as always & we didn’t feel rushed at all. We had a lovely meal & will definitely be going again.
Excellent food, very high quality. Served in a great atmosphere. Polite and good customer service provided by all members of staff. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a lovely night out.
Good food a polite service. Always presented well. Been there a few times and always a pleasant experience. The soft drinks;( a basic small glass of blackcurrant and soda/fizzy squash) was overpriced; 2 glasses@£5.90? Too steep.
As always great food and service , good selection and well presented. The staff are always friendly and helpful and will help to make a dish of your choice.
Really nice food and can’t wait for another sit in meal in the future. The staff were really friendly and very prompt with the service
