Probably one of the most delicious curries we've ever eaten! The chicken was juicy & sauce perfect. Thank you star of Bengal, keep it up X

Good old "Indian" food, but rather lacking in creativity. The main dishes were a bit too sweet. The service was OK

I was looking around Darlington for a good place to eat and found a real diamond at the Star of Bengal. Doesn't look in a great area but the food was fantastic - I can't believe the place wasn't packed out - everyone should go!...More
