Just had an excellent lunch. Starters were large and tasty. Main meals and side dishes were very well presented, with large portions and tasted superb. Service was courteous and attentive. Thoroughly recommend this eatery.

We had Jolly Boys outing to Whitstable yesterday - 2 hours each way on the train but well worth it. We walked past this restaurant on the way from the station and would have done well to go straight in instead of just before 2pm....More

If you like your Indian restaurant simple and delicious the Star of Bengal is a great example. Flavoursome food which was served with attentive care. I have visited many of the top Bradford restaurants in this is on par. Good food without the modern day...More
