We dined this evening at Dine Bangla. The food was very good. The staff were friendly.

The music was a little loud and we asked them to turn it down, which they did.

The poppodoms came with a selection of chutneys and a plate of sliced tomatoes and onions. All delicious.

My main course of lamb passanda, bindi bhagee and pilau rice was very good.

A good choice if you are looking for a good curry and friendly staff at a reasonable price

First of all I have to say we didn't eat here. Tried but ultimately failed. We ordered drinks and pappadums before receiving menus. And was then amazed to find, in small notes on the menu, a minimum charge of £19.95per person. A mistake, surely? Apparently not so we exited and went elsewhere.

We have no issues with minimum charges. Indeed, the Lancer around the corner gave us a very nice meal, and ha a £8.00 minimum charge. Fair enough. But when the minimum is more than the price of a meal, something is very wrong.

Our meal last night at the Lancer was £29.60 - drinks, snacks and a very nice main meal. Babysitters meant we didn't have time for a long meal. At Dine Bangla, this would have been £39.90 and, if I hadn't read the small notes at the back of the menu, we would have received this bill not knowing about thie wholly excessive charge. Not a welcome surprise.

I have no problem with restaurants protecting themselves but I object when this becomes a rip-off. Dine Bangla falls into the latter category and the management need to look again at this unfortunate decision.

As is common practice with most restaurants we have a (discretionary) minimum charge. It isn't something that we have ever enforced. We will take your comments on board and I do hope that this doesn't put you off dining with us in the future.

Good food, and one of the best cooked lamb curries I've had for a while.

Very busy (booking a must) on a Friday night but still fairly good service.

Would visit again :)

Simply the best. Miles ahead of all the other local indians. Never had a bad meal there in the 10 plus years I've been going and never had a better indian elsewhere. You can order anything from the menu and you will not be disappointed. It is truly WONDERFUL yeeeeeeaaaaas!!!!
