Bengal Brasserie, Leeds City Centre

A great venue for anyone that loves Indian Cuisine and as tradition with Bengali food, serves very flavoursome and quite spicy dishes. Really good value for money here as well!

Overall Rating – 5/5

Food – 4/5

Value for money – 5/5

££ = Approx £55 for the both of us including; poppadoms & pickle tray, a starter each, a mean each, 4 alcoholic drinks, 3 sides and a naan to share!

To carry on the theme of #NationalCurryWeek ( and yes this may have been my 5th curry this week ) we decided to take a trip to Trip Advisor’s top rated Indian Restaurant in Leeds!

I booked a table a few nights ahead for a Friday night, which I would recommend to do as it was just about full when we were there.

Staff were very friendly and accommodating and chatty as well. As with quite a number of curry houses we’ve been to the menu is VAST, so maybe a peek before your visit to try decide what you want would be a good idea. We started off with poppadoms and pickle tray which were good with a good choice of “pickles”.

For starters I had the Paneer Tikka which was a decent portion and cooked well. Jamie went for the Murgh Bunda (like a chicken spring roll), small portion but tasty.

For my main I went for something different and chose a House Speciality – Chom Chom (medium curry with potato and chickpeas). I thoroughly enjoyed this curry. It was a little greasy/oily, but very tasty and filling. I also tried one of the bhajis (aubergine), it was definitely different, think I’d prefer to stick to onion bhaji next time but worth a try.

Jamie chose the Naga Chilli (hot). Now for those of you that enjoy spicy food but struggle to find a curry that matches it’s hot rating, yes this one is actually very hot! Poor Jamie struggled to finish it and ended up downing two pints to cool his mouth down (any excuse). Saying this, the curry was tasty and cooked well, but be warned when this place describes a curry as hot, it is!!!

Well we enjoyed this lovely Indian feast between us and we were pleasantly surprised at how much value for money it was!!

I would definitely recommend this curry house to anyone around the Leeds area! Find out more about what they have to offer on their menu here.

Happy munching!
