I am a regular customer at Sonar Bangla and it never fails to disappoint. The service is excellent, quick and efficient. Food is always very flavorsome and well priced! Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who fancies a curry in Ipswich.

Small restaurant with seating for 16-20. Excellent friendly service and varied menu, Food was top rate with plenty of flavour and served promptly. Restaurant is not licensed but you can take your own wine etc. Prices are reasonable with excellent special offers on some days.
