It's become a bit of a tradition that whenever we travel over to York from Lancashire to visit my daughter at York Uni, that we all go out for a curry. We stumbled upon the Bengal Brasserie quite by chance four years ago and we...have been coming back regularly every couple of months or so ever since. The staff are always very welcoming and attentive to our needs. And the food is delicious and flavoursome, and last Sunday night was no different. Chicken Tikka Saag is normally my go to dish, with the girls on Butter Chicken. Thank you to Saf, Jay and Ekon for a great night and for the free shots !!! See you all again soon.More

What a fantastic Indian!! Very welcoming and very fresh food packed with flavour! We had sheek kebab to start that tasted so fresh and delicious. We also had a khari and pathia. Wow!! Chicken soft and full of flavour. We are from Birmingham and this...was definitely one of the best curries we have had. Right up there for the explosion of taste and soft fluffy nans, wanting you to come back for more! We may have to make s special visit for this curry house. Thank you Fozal , the chief of 32years for amazing tasting food! Thank you Jay and Ekon for your service and especially Saff! Super helpful with helping you with curry choice's and very friendly.More

Visited on Saturday evening for the first time. The service was very attentive - but then they added a service charge to the bill. The food was mediocre - there are better Indian restaurants in York.

Beautiful food here we really enjoyed it. Excellent service from Saf, Jay and Ekon who did all they could to make it a great experience by explaining unfamiliar dishes and giving attentive service. There is a bit of a wait for dishes but that is...because they are cooked from scratch and some meats were brought to the table still sizzling in the pan they had been cooked in then decanted to plates. It was worth the time. It was our first visit but we will definitely go again.More

We were a family group of 5 visiting the Bengal Brasserie for the first time. We had a good evening.... everyone really enjoyed the food they had chosen.The waiters were friendly, polite and efficient., and gave us a good welcome on arrival, the complimentary drink...at the end was a bonus. Thank you Saf, Saj and Ekon for looking after us, you worked very hard throughout the evening.More

This restaurant is here for one reason, to give you exactly what you expect. The food was beautiful, the service was exceptional, when you get quality like we had tonight the price is irrelevant, but nonetheless very good value for money. Can’t speak highly enough...of this place, best curry we have had in 20 years, if not the best ever. We’ll be back next time we are in York, and will be recommending the Bombay Brasserie to our family and friends. 10 out of 10. You won’t be disappointed.More
