Got in on the late ferrry and starving. Bad points: no draught beer. Bottled cobra though. Card machine broken, but not told till we went to pay. Luckily we had cash. Food was ok. Waiter recommended a dish, which was good. Naan bread were small, but well cooked. Food not as good as my local, but good enough and well... More

Came here after other restaurants in the area were closed and was pleasantly surprised. A very tasty selection of different dishes. Try one of the chefs recommendations for something new. Will definitely visit here again for something spicy :)

Went whilst on holiday and visiting stornoway. Good solid indian with decent flavours and not overpowered by spice. Good selection of chutneys with popadoms whichbis always good to see.

A great find! This excellent takeaway is well worth visiting. Great food, good sized portions and the proprietor could not have been more helpful.

An excellent and reasonably priced meal. Superb vegetable samosas and the best chicken tikka dhansak I've had in a long time. The remainder of the meal could not be faulted either (tarka dal, chana rice, chicken tikka masala and chapattis). A bit off the beaten track but well worth seeking out.

I really enjoyed Bangla. I tried to visit about 8 p.m. on a Friday but it was real busy, so I came back the next night. I was pleased I did, it was quite quiet and I seated straightaway. There are about 10 tables, so it is small. The staff are attentive and the owner (I presume) was very friendly.... More

Good Indian food, reasonably priced. Service was ok although not particularly welcoming at first. Probably the best deal in Stornoway, where there seems to have very few decent restaurants. I recommend if you happen to be around.

The place was busy with people doing takeout, which we took as a good sign. And behold: we were not disappointed. We have had "hotter" indian food in other places, but that is not to say it wasn't tasty. We enjoyed sizzlers, korma and masala. All good.

4 of us went in for an evening meal and we were met by an unsmiling waiter. I ordered a traditional curry with tandoori chicken (on the bone) as the menu said, to be told "thats on the bone" When the meal arrived I had 4 bits of chicken on the bone yes but the kind you buy from the... More
