Best mango chicken EVER!!! – So i never heard about the bengal tiger until a close friend of mine started to work there. With that being said I had to stop in and try something off the menu. The owner of the restaurant is soo friendly and welcomes everyone. He asked me if I wanted to try something and so I did. I tried the mango chicken and OH MY GOD its amazing!!! along with the naan and the rice. I would recommend this dish to anyone who likes a tangy kind of flavor. Other great things to try include, the mango lassi and mango ice cream. Overall I give this place an A++
One of Seattle's Favorites – Some of the best - if not the best Indian food / restaurant in the city - one of the best lunch deals in the city as well - $7.99 for their lunch buffet. Best Indian lunch buffet I've experienced. Packed at dinner for a very good reason...one of Seattle's favorites...
Tasty food, friendly service – Our family drove out of our way to come here for dinner - drawn by the free papadums offered at the begining of the meal as well as the good reviews. The papadums and their chutneys lived up to our hopes, and our entrees were good, too. Delicious sweet lassi. Servers were attentive and helpful and ran out after us when we forgot our to go bag.
Best Buffett – Never been a big fan of Indian food, but my mind was changed yesterday when I visited Bengal Tiger in Green Lake. Their lunch buffet was amazing, with a varied selection and food for all types. The blend of spices and seasonings in their curry sauce savors in your mouth for the entire day, and only makes you want to come back again.
Best Tasting Indian Food. Very good customer service. Owner takes pride in service. – One of the best places to have Indian food in Seattle. The flavor is so authentically Indian. I had an opportunity to speak to the owner, who is also the head chef... and prepares all of the entrees by himself. He takes great pride in his culinary skills. The service at the restaurant is awesome too. In terms of the price, it is no more expensive than most of the other Indian restaurants.
Butter Butter Butter Chicken...MMMMM! – I went here yesterday for the lunch buffet, and can't believe I forgot about how much I used to come here when I lived in the U district! This really is my favorite butter chicken in Seattle. I am not extremely adventurous but I also had some tandori chicket and smaller samples of the lamb and vegetable dishes. The owner actually walked me throught the buffet and told me what was in everything. He also eagerly greeted others that came in. It's nice to see some pride in a place like that. It was a great experience and I can see why they keep winning on NWSource for peoples picks.
Frequent visitor no more! – I must say, it is a treat when my family and I go to Bengal tiger for our family dinners. They have been very caring the service has always been excellent. However our recent trip has left us desiring otherwise. I had ordered the sheesh kabob per recommendation from the owner himself. However when I received my food, the kabob was clearly undercooked and portions of it were completely raw! Just because I frequent the restaurant so much I remained calm and requested the server to return my dish to the kitchen to have the kabob recooked. My wife's tandoori lamb was enjoyable to her for the most part. Until she started choking and pulled out what appeared to be a plastic wrap from her throat. I do not understand how such an object will find its way in the food at this restaurant but one thing is for certain, the reputation of this restaurant has been tarnished in my eyes. Even more ridiculous, the server never returned my food and we sat for an hour as neither my wife's dish nor mine ever came back. The servers were continually apologetic but there appeared to be something amidst. We decided to forego this whole mess and left a large tip for the servers for their excellent service, the restaurant however deserves no proportion of such tip!
Amazing service and hands down the best Indian food in Seattle !! – OK first of all the owner of Bengal is great, he always comes to our table and makes sure we are happy and need for nothing!! The service between him and his staff is 5 star. The food is perfection!! We love it so much and have so much faith in Muhammad that we let him just bring us food, and the result is mind-blowing!! His food is so full of flavor and My boyfriend and I love trying new things and Muhammad delivers!! ( We always go home with plenty of food too, the servings are large )
This last time we had Onion Bhaji & Samosas for an appetizer, the lamb in the samosas is so tender perfect start to what is about to be a truly fabulous dinner. The Naan bread here is great - try the stuffed ones you will be surprised! ...yummi ....Dinner .....We start with a little gem called Mango Wala with prawns is spicy and yet not so spice you cant still taste the prawn its a perfect balance of spicy flavor and mango !! Next up is Achar Wala in lamb I am not a big fan of lamb but this was so good I was really impressed the flavor is like fireworks in your mouth. Last but not least is the Shahi Paneer - this homemade cheese is a classic Indian dish but its my favorite I cant get enough of it!! .......
Basically Its my opinion that this restaurant is wonderful!! If your new to trying Indian food or already a fan Bengal Tiger is 5 stars and a sure winner....the price is right and the service cant be beat !!
Mango Chicken !!! – This is the only indian place where you will find the best mango chicken in town. Love it. The manager
A home beyond home. – Today is Monday, April 14, bengali's new year-poila boishak. This is our second visit to Bengal tiger. But in only two visits, Saluddin bhai or rather Muhammad for all, has tied up in a cordial relationship. He has a very warm heart with good sense of hospitality. Today, we went to Bengal Tiger to taste some 'homemade dishes' & it was worth going there. The fish fry, macher jhol(fish curry) & at the end the mango pudding with coconut milk was the best. You all shall be surprised to know that we just called him yesterday to say that we want to eat whatever he would like to serve us & the result was 'mind blowing' . Well prepared, well served & above all the courteous nature of Saluudin bhai is the best combination you shall have beyond your house.
