I ordered a takeaway online that never arrived. Tried ringing them to get an update but phone number no longer exists. There are no recent reviews of them in any website i can find.

Such a shame that this restaurant is often nearly empty when we visit. On a Wednesday two weeks before Christmas the only other diners were a table of six (three generations of a family) enjoying a birthday meal, as were we. The service was professional...and friendly, with immediate advice when I mentioned our Meerkat Meals membership and guidance re the food choices. We did not use the Meerkat discount, but all patrons are currently given a 20% discount on food. My wife's King Prawn biryani was a large portion, accompanied by a tasty curry sauce. My lamb pasanda and saag ponir were tasty and well cooked, and after adding a cheese and coriander naan (very tasty also), a wine spritzer for my wife and a J2O for me, the total bill was £30 - good value for a well-cooked meal in pleasant surroundings and served with professionalism and an appropriate amount of talking without interrupting our meal. Try the Royal Spice - you will not be disappointed!More

Nearly 2 hours for delivery and then just dissapointing. Full of raw onions and peppers. Sag aloo with no sag, aloo gobi with no gobi!! Just potatoes with no tasye Tarka Daal!! Thrown together with no care for taste. Could have ordered anything and would...have been the same generic mealMore

We normally visit the excellent Cinnamon Bay rather than the Royal Bengal in Hamble. We decided to give the Royal Bengal another try after about 2 years. The highlight of the meal were the popadoms & dips and the bottle of wine. We ordered Chicken...Balti and Paneer for our main courses with sides of naans and rice. The paneer came with only 2 bits of cheese. We complained and we very grateful for another bowl with tons of pieces of cheese. My Balti was very bland with 4 strips of pepper and not a hint of chilli. In comparison in terms of chilli hot it was on par with a Korma. There were 4 members of staff working on our Saturday night visit. The manager and waitress were helping out exclusively in the kitchen. A benefit was 20% discount. We love supporting our local businesses but they have to deliver on taste and hospitality. A real shame!More

1st time eating here and definitely not the last. Dined with four friends after a day out boating . We had a selection of starters and mains to share and it was the best curry I have had for years. My particular favourite was the...Beef Malabar which went extremely well with the Peshwari naan. We shared 5 different dishes and all were excellent.More

Tried this restaurant for the first time. Although there were only 2 tables eating in we could see they were very busy serving take aways. The food was extremely tasty and amazing portions. Service was good and even got asked when we would like the...mains served, a lovely touch. Used Meerkat Meals which made it even better value.More

My wife and I enjoyed a meal on a Wednesday evening in late February, when we were the only clients until another couple came in just after 8.00 p.m. The young man who served us explained that he is new in post, and he will...do well as a waiter based on this first meeting. The food was as good as on our previous visits, with a tasty Biriani for my wife and an equally tasty menu choice for me. The restaurant had a "20% off your bill" offer advertised on the window, and after applying that our total bill was just under £30 for two mains with vegetables, a cheese and coriander naan, plus a wine spritzer and a J20 - fair price for good food, and generous servings (neither of us could finish all our food, which is unusual!) Well worth a visit!More

Think twice before ordering a takeaway from here. It took over 2 hours and was an hour late from the promised arrival time! Phoned twice and was told he is 10 minutes away both times and on the 3rd phone call was told he couldn’t...find the previous delivery! Was told I live far from them (6miles) food was stone cold on arrival with no offer of an apology or discount for having to wait! Do not order from a takeaway from here! I’m not the first to mention the lateness of a delivery.More
