We missed the new Bengal so much and are glad to see the new new Bengal rise up from the literal ashes. Our favourite Indian is back and incredibly is better than ever. We only had a carry out tonight and look forward to dining in, as it looks fantastic in the restaurant. The food was top notch and it... More

I've been to the New New Bengal three times since it reopened and it's simply excellent. The menu is fresh and exciting, the welcome is warmer than ever, the service has improved immeasurably and, most importantly, the food is even better than it was before the fire. The chef has a delicate touch even with big rustic dishes like Handi... More

Firstly, the managemant here have missed an opportunity by not calling this place The Flaming Bengal, but I don't hold that against them. The food here is very good - I'm not sure they're fully in their stride again since reopening but they will get there. Sometimes they seem to struggle with the demand of the retaurant customers + those... More

All refurbished after the fire and back in business. It's a bit cafe like but contemporary. Very noisy when full. The food was lovely presented but it isn't quite right. The best pickle dish you will ever have but the poppadoms went fresh as they had gone soggy. King prawn was lost on the plate. At £25+ a head a... More

it was like returning home by the welcome we received when we entered. The service, food and wine was fantastic. The menu has a good range of delicious dishes from the old favourites to the new signature dishes. We had the most marvellous night.

We had a very nice mean at the NNB, staff are very friendly and welcoming, and the food was very nice, drinks and food reasonably priced. They gave us some starter dish on the house that they were trying out and canvassing opinion on, that was also nice a chickpea based dish. Only two minor grumbles are it's very noisy/echoey... More

It was good to see this restaurant back in business with the same people in charge. As before, the food was very good and the service very efficient. It has been completely refurbished and is impressive. The only criticism is that the new layout makes it quite cramped and a bit noisy.
