I often get a takeaway from here. The food is really nice, however it costs quite a bit, like most Indian takeaways they are no longer cheap dining, quite the opposite. I have dined in the restaurant as well but found it very un- relaxing...More

Got to be one of the best Indian restaurants in Bristol. It can get busy but generally that means its good, allow plenty of time for take away odrers

I was introduced to the Bengal Raj by friends some time ago, since then I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed with the food or service. In my opinion it must be one of the best Indian restaurants in Bristol.
