We visited the Light of Bengal restaurant on Tuesday evening hadn't booked just came in & we were welcomed at the door, surprisingly busy for a Tuesday but got seated straight away. Food & service was excellent as usual, this is one of a few established Indian restaurants in Aberdeen and would recommend it to anybody.

Light of Bengal is the best restaurant in Aberdeen, we love them, but on Saturday night when we've visited everything was good as we expect till we started eating our starters, the CHICKEN TANDOORI was excellent but GARLIC MUSHROOM wasn't garlicky, it was more sweet then garlicky. Not say that we wouldn't be bk, we will.

We had a Spree book voucher so we got 1 main meal for free. We usually go for rogan josh and tikka masala but this time decided to try something new and we werent dissapointed. The Bengal tiger sauce is amazing! Very friendly service and it is not a "tacky" indian restaurant. Only downside is that it is quite expensive... More

Had a meal at Light of Bengal and found the food to be very good and plenty of it. The service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was quite busy even though it was early evening. Would definitely go back.

Having thoroughly enjoyed a visit a couple of months ago, we decided to return with other friends. Again the food was exceptionally good with the tandoori king prawns a highlight. Staff very friendly and efficient.

Went here with a couple of mates for a curry after work. The food was good but nothing special and I normally expect mammoth portions when I go for curries, which was lacking. Funny but slightly irritating was when one of the waiters asked me if I wanted extra poppadoms and I said "yes if they're free" he said "certainly... More
