0 STARS. 0 STARS. If you care about what is in your food, don't go to this restaurant. They don't know what is in their food, and they will mislead you and have you eat things that you can't eat. If you have any kind of allergy or you are vegan DO NOT eat here. I repeat, they do not know what is in their food. Repeatedly told me that some food was OK to eat, and then one day I found out I was eating disgusting dairy sludge for the past year. Disgusting, unacceptable, I will NEVER eat here again. I literally sobbed for hours knowing that I had eaten this crap as veganism is very important to me, it really distressed me in a serious way.
I am going to be writing a letter to the manager and I even wish I could legally peruse them in this matter.
If you have no dietary restrictions this place is probably pretty good, but just be warned how they treat their other customers.
I just HATE it when restaurants don't know what's in their food, it should be illegal. Take advice from me and always say you have a dairy/egg allergy if you're vegan, although I wouldn't put it past these idiots to even take that seriously.
Have fun not knowing what's in your food!
my trip to india – OMG, aside from the fact that i love the Mango chops. The Samossa and the Tandori chicken made a huge immpression on my two picky eatters. The waitress let them look in the kitchen to see the tandori oven. Bengal tiger is our family resturant. If we had it our way we would be their everyday, I find my self going their just to get the mouth watering garlic basil naan, that rarely makes it home. yummm. The service is wonderful, the staff greets us as if we were family.
I'm in love! – I love, love, love this restaurant! My gf and I go here at least twice a month for the past 3 years. Their service is excellent, and food is sublime. I've never tasted anything stale or bland on their menu; everything has always been fresh and flavorful.
I thank Bengal Tiger for making my food life so much more colorful and delicious. I'm no longer just a meat and potatoes guy. Keep it up, B.T., you guys rock!
Poor service, terrible food – I decided to try this place after reading all the great reviews about it. I made the trip to the restaurant for dinner one week night. Once at the restaurant, it took about 7 minutes to be seated, even though the place was virtually empty. The waiters/waitresses seemed to be busy up front and did not notice customers come in. Upon being seated, it took another 5 minutes for the waiter to return with the menu and the papaddums. It took another 10 minutes to get my food after I placed my order. I hoped the food would make up for the poor service, but alas, it was a double whammy for me. The chicken curry dish I ordered was bland; the dish was neither seasoned nor spiced. I had to add lots of salt to give it some flavor. The rice looked and tasted like leftovers. I ordered a side of naan and that too was terrible: cold, thin and crispy, instead of hot and fluffy. It tasted like naan from the frozen food aisle.
Indian cuisine is my favorite and 8 out of 10 times I eat out, I go for Indian cuisine. Bengali Tiger has the worst Indian food I have ever eaten. Frozen Indian food from your local store beats Bengali hands-down.
I will stick to Shalimar in the U-District. Their food never dissapoints and the service, prices, and ambience are excellent!
Tandoori mango Lamb chops – They make the best Tandoori Mango Lamb Chops and offer the best Lunch Buffet in town! Truly my favorite place to eat out.
Great Place for Buffet – I always go there for Buffet. Never disappointed. Lamb curry is superb. Tandori chickens are fresh. Butter chicken curry tastes good. Vegi dishes are awsome and lots of varieties.I became vegi lover after going this restaurant. Students get discounts on buffet for price of $5.95. Great atmosphere for friends and family.
Worst Indian Food Everrr – I am Indian and I regularly have Indian food outside. So, believe me, when I say that the food here was really bad. First, the papaddums that they serve in the beginning of each meal are stale, old ones that should not be eaten. I would let that pass as it is complimentary. I ate their veggie pakoras and Vegetarian Curry Bazaar. The rice that came along with it is the worst kind you can find. I dont think any other Indian restaurant serves this worse a rice! The curry was hot but that was the only taste (if I can call that 'taste'). The food lacked complete flavor. I have had food close to 15 Indian restaurants here and have never felt so strongly about the food. The waitress was nice though. Service was prompt and you would have no trouble parking near by.
Great Indian / Bengali place to eat... – We were on our trip to Skagit Valley from Boise for the Tulip festival. We stopped at this restaurant based on review. The young brother of the owner was managing at that time. It was late afternoon. He treated us royally and he himself cooked. Really liked the place. We stopped again on our way back. We will be there again. We highly recommend the place.
Best Indian in town – I just moved from London where the Indian is superb! Bengal Tiger would be right there in the running if it was in London! It's great, reasonably priced and has great service. Both their lunch buffet and dinner are super.
