Best Indian Food 6/18/2011

I had dinner reservation for 10 people. We had great time, the food was very tasty and the staffs were very friendly. It was worth the money. Other Indian Restaurant would cost double and the service would be bad. \r This is the first Bengali Restaurant in New England. The food is home made. I had Bengali food in other places but the food is nothing like Bengali food. I would highly recommend going to this Royal Bengal Restaurant that is located in Cambridge. more

Great family restaurant 8/26/2009

Best Bengali food I've had since my travel in south-east Asia. I'm surprised it took me nearly 8 years to discover this great place. I've yet to try their lunch buffet, which seems perhaps the best deal around. I'll review that here as well. Pros: Bengali and Indian cuisine Cons: Only 35 seats, gets crowded more

Editorial review from GrubHub 4/29/2008

This is the third time I've used Grub hub and yet again I'm really disappointed. I know it's not Grub Hub itself, but the individual companies - but they should really get delivery people who know Boston/Cambridge area and who do not hang up on the phone when you are trying to provide directions! So rude! I also ordered my meal to come with a mild sauce and it came as spicy so I could hardly eat it either. Overall not good...again. more

Awsome food 2/29/2008

My girlfriend and I went there last weekend, must say its one of the best place to dine out. There're two menus with so many great choices it took us forever to place our order. We had Begun Pora (roasted eggplant), Murgir Jhol (chicken stew), and Royal Platter (pepper with stuffing). The food was marvelous, but a little spicier than we're used to. Overall a great experience and highly recommended. more

Would'nt recommend it 11/13/2007

\r There are plenty of good Indian restaurants in cambridge and this is just not one of them. The naan I ordered was burnt and I have had much better curries elsewhere. Their service also could be improved a lot. Pros: Good location, easy access Cons: Neither the food nor the ambience/service was good. more

Food was burnt 7/16/2006

4 of us, ordered 5 different dishes and 2 of which were burnt. We sent them back and got refunds, but it threw us off the place. It was cheap, and the rest of the food was good, but would not recommend or go back. more

Authenic Bengali Menu 12/30/2005

Has Bengali, Muslim (halal) and traditional Indian food. The Bengali food definitely carried the flavor of Bengal. The Aloo Bhate had a strong mustard and chili flavor, the Begun Bhaja was tender but could have been slightly more crisp, the Chingirir Malaikari was delicious but slightly overcooked so lost the full crumbliness of fresh water prawns and the Kasha Mangsho was mouthwatering but could have been slightly drier. The nit-pics are very minor and I suspect more a matter of interpretation than anything else. Only warning is Bengali food has a strong, and acquired taste specially the dishes with Ilish (a type of Shad) and mustard oil. People expecting standard Indian (Pujabi style) food should stick to the main menu. Pros: authentic Bengali, good food, friendly service Cons: small place more

Bengali it is - but not the buffet.. 6/30/2005

A former reader reported that the food is not Bengali. This is probably true of the buffet, but the a-la-carte includes several typical Bengali items: Try the fish called Hilsa (a million bones, but extremely tasty), and the eggplant cooked with mustard seed. The Bengali menu is small, but excellent. It's a small, unpresumptuous place, a simple ma-and-pa restaurant with excellent food and kind service. Pros: food, service more

Nothing really Bengali, but ok food 5/18/2005

I've eaten several times at this buffet restaurant, mostly because of the convenient location (notwithstanding the massive rubble pile which has graced its entrance for the past few weeks thanks to City of Cambridge construction). They advertise as authentic Bengali food, but it is not different from you average Cambridge Indian buffet. The samosas are distinctly Bengali though (smaller and crispier) and I will wager by the 4 arms of Vishnu that they prepare the filling fresh each day, instead of recylcing last week's leftover Aloo Gobi. The sauces are rich, but a little too glumatic for my tastes. I have seen the owners and someone whom the owner described to the cute Latina waitress as ""mi hermana"" eat their own food, so it can't be that unhealthy. Overall, a good eating experience if you are hungry and in the Kendall-Central stretch of Mass Avuenue... Pros: Good samosas, Good fried foods Cons: MEthinks they put MSG more
