The BEST Indian takeaway in North London
The food was delicious, it was ready for collection when it said it would be, and it didn't cost the earth. But mainly the delicious thing.
- Heloise O'Donoghue

Very disappointing. The lamb shank was overcooked, tough and dry. The vegetables were under seasoned and the vegetable rice tasted like left-overs - tasteless.
- Elizabeth Wharfe

Consistently good food.
Our Friday ritual is to get curry from these guys and watch movies. We've tried most of the items on the menu and couldn't fault any of them both vegetarian and their meat dishes. Of all the orders we've placed probably only had one late order (outside the time frame they gave) but overall very consistent and well appreciated. Haven't actually dined in there yet but I have picked up and the restaurant looks nice and at that time had what looked like plenty of families dining.
- James

Moist and tasty food.
- jackie nixon

Always reliable and delicious one of our favourite curries in London
- Kaoru Sato

All went according to plan and the food was delicious
The meal was a great success and the whole esperience was everything which I wanted it to be
- Sam

Delicious flavours carefully prepared
The tarka daal was thinner than I am used to and the portions were not over generous but the food was delicious.
- James O Nuanain

Good food
I have been a regular at Bengal Lancer. The food is still just as good with prompt and polite service.
- Ken Tan

Would order again
A little more than we normally pay for a curry, but the quality and taste are worth it.
- Nick

food was cold and wasn't worth the money, very little meat in the main course. I have eaten in this place and the food was perfect, just a shame their takeaway was a disappointment
- m

Order here all the time!
Great food. Favourite korma and their signature dish chandislargh is great
- Stefan Arif

utterly delicious!
This curry blew me away! Their own creation with lime, balsamic and honey, it was like nothing i've ever tasted! Truly inspired, and the service was perfect.
- Emma Snowsill

Absolutely delicious.
I have been eating at the Kiplings regularly. It was good to find out that they deliver.

Back to good old Bengal Lancer
Been experimenting a little recently with different take aways. Been mostly disappointed. Was so hungry yesterday and in need of a good meal that we could not risk a bad take away. Reverted back to Bengal Lancer. They give you just what you need. Great Indian food and a big smile.
- Ernesto Broersma

Great korma!
That was a great order - we loved everything we got. A beginning thali and a chicken korma - all delicious
- Kristine Lowas

Look No Further
the food is fabulous, the service is great and deliveries are always fast. A friend recommended me to the Lancer. It's just a brilliant place.
- James Alexander

Best curry in Camden
We will only order from Bengal lancer Kentish town
- angela hepburn

Repeat order - still satisfied
Nothing better than spices and curries to thaw away the snowy weather.
- Ken Tan

Great to find out that they deliver!
I have been eating at the Bengal Lancer regularly. It's good to find out that they deliver.
- Ken Tan

Very Disappointing
i was early to collect and had to wait a few minutes for the food so presumably it was fresh out of the kitchen, but when i got home nearly every dish was luke warm, especially the naan, royal swab and gosht hydrabadi. the gosht was expected to be "cooked on the bone" but much of what i was given, buried under the very bland coconut sauce, were just lumps of bone and gristle. the few chunks of lamb were tough. the royal swab, described as "crisp hot fried parsnips in bengali spices" was little more than cool, soggy deep fried parsnip. all in all, this turned our to be one of the worst meals i've had from anywhere for years.
- Mark Webber

Our meal from Bengal lancer was excellent and very fresh tasting
- Jessica Fitzgerald

Very Impressed!
The Bengal Lancer menu has something to suit all tastes, all at fantastic value for money and cooked promptly. I will be coming back!
- Emma Snowsill

Bengal Lancer
Excellent service and great food.
- Helen Turner

Best Curry in Camden
If you like a hot curry order the Dhaba Lamb from Bengal Lancer you won't be disappointed.
- Lee Dyball

Good food, good service
We had a really nice meal from the Bengal Lancer yesterday. The food was really good and we were impressed that it was delivered, still hot, twenty minutes earlier than we expected it. Thank you!
- Ruth Hawthorn

Interesting dishes
Food good, not the usual dishes you find on a curry menu. Order turned up without the ordered naan bread though, which was a bit slack.
- Daniel Hayes

Our Bengal Lancer meal was wonderful, enjoyed by carnivores and a vegetarian. It was very much appreciated also by a relative who'd never had curried food before. We could eat it all again maybe next week. Highly recommended
- Carol Seed

- Ewout Vandeweghe

Good food slow service
Delivery took 1 hour and 25 minutes which is unacceptable really. When the food arrived it was a little bit cold but was excellent so it sort of made up for the wait. Will probably eat in or collect next time.
- Louis Glickman

Good food shame about delivery
The Bengal Lancer is a good curry house, unfortunately the takeaway wasn't up to their usual good standards. The delivery man couldn't find the right road so the food was tepid by the time we got it. Some of the dishes were too dry. Will stick to dining-in in the future.
- Michael Kemp

One of the best curry houses in London
- Jon Simmons

Happy customer
Amazing food from the Bengal Lancer as always, and fantastic service from Curries Online. Thank you!
- nora meyer

Worse second time around
Sadly the Bengal Lancer didn't do as well the second time around. The chicken chasnidargh was gloopy and overrun with sauce. The lamb biryani was spicy but dull with slightly questionable quality lamb. The deliveryman was rude because he couldn't find us. We live on a main road... I'll be looking for another option next time I order Indian.
- Kate Gibson

First curry in Kentish Town
Having just moved to the area it was a bit daunting trying to find a good curry place. But we found one first time! Ordering online was easy, the menu has a good selection and most importantly the quality of the food was high. Good meat and non-greasy sauces. Not super cheap but happy given the food quality. Delivery was a bit slow and he had to call twice to find us but it was still hot. Have placed second order so we'll see if this is a trend for good food!
- Kate Gibson

Bengal Lancer is Tops

Good food
My wife and I regularly order curries from Bengal Lancer. I eat meat and my wife is a veggie. A great place for a curry for both of us.
- David Wilson

Main dishes undersalted/could have been hotter. But still very tasty and fresh flavours.
- Jessica Bryan

great mid range curry
delivered right on time, fresh - nan breads still crisp, great value in that 25 quid for two range
- steve roberts

Not the same
There must be a different chef working in the Bengal lancer, because the food is terrible now. Took over an hour to turn up, which would explain why it was cold. Threw it in the bin, waste of money. Shame as the bengal was the best Indian resturant in north west London. Won't be earring there again
- jason hall

best food i've had so far
the food was absolutely spectacular. i have nothing else to say.
- Baran Doda

yummy curry!
yummy curry as usual. :-)
- sheree hall

King of Camden Curry
Best curry by far in the area, recommend the Halbadras Prize a meaty feast for 2
- Mike Wheatley

once again DELICIOUS!!!
Just ordered another curry from Bengal Lancer. fabulous!!! took an hour to arrive, but was worth the wait.
- sheree hall

Really lovely food
The food is always nice from the Bengal Lancer and this delivery was the same high standard. When ordered we were told 45-60 mins and it arrived within 30 mins. Very happy with the order and service.
- Lawrence Bonavia

Excellent service, average curry
This was my second takeaway from the Lancer and it was a bit disappointing. £3.00 for two teeny onion bhajis, and the blandest korma I've ever had. It arrived pretty quick though and the popadoms were good, but 50p for a tablespoon of mango chutney is a bit much. Probably won't go back, even though the first takeaway I had from here was excellent.
- Briony Cadwallader

Delicious Food.
I ordered a Chicken saag, rice,naan and poppadoms. I can honestly say it was the best curry i have ever had, and i have had ALOT of curries in my time! would highly recommend Bengal Lancer to everyone.
- sheree hall

Delicious but a bit pricey
The food is lovely, but it is a little expensive.
- Briony Cadwallader

Reliably Good
Consistently good food, delivered on time. Particularly enjoyed the Sabjee Begun Pie. Prices have gone up lately though, so not as good value for money as before; but still a nice option.
- Marjorie Vestergaard

Great and good value
Very nice food, timely delivery and good value for money.
- Natalie Leroy

great taste, but small portions
the la,bn pasadnda tasted amazing. i do recommend. however, it literally is only a few strips of lamb which i thought was disappointing...
- david segall

Good food
One of our favourite locals, have been going there for many years. Although it is the first time we got take away from them. The online setting up process was a bit tedious (took much longer than the other sites, almost gave up at 1 point) but once you signed up, it was ok. The food was good as usual. Only bad point was it took about 1 hour for the delivery.
- Karen So

Best Indian ever
Love there food, but would love it if they had chana masala.Food and services was very good
- Robert Lettieri

~Tasty and fresh
- Claire Holdsworth

Curry was ordinary
The curry i bought from Bengal Lancer of average quality, lacked in taste and was costly. Much prefered the Highgate Spice.
- Samuel Westbury

Curry could have been better
When i buy a curry from Bengal Lancer i expect the quality to be high, but the curry was tasteless and very expensive.
- Samuel Westbury

Fantastic service - would recommend
This was the first time we had ever ordered food to be delivered on line. The order was delivered at exactly the specified time, the delivery man was charming and we were extremely impressed with the curries themselves. The portions were generous, and the food was delicious. I had the salmon and it was great. The chutneys were a bit disappointing, but that didn't spoil what was otherwise a great experience and one which we will definitely repeat.
- Sue Keighley

Food and service were very good better than the standard takeaway

- Esther Jeapes

Delivery from Bengal lancer
Food was lovely and the delivery person was pleasant. However, it took 1.5 hours to be delivered and I only live around the corner from the restaurant. Agree with comment from someone else that it would be good to get a confirmation text/message to say that the order is being put through. I didn't get an order number so I couldn't fill in the 'late delivery' form and ended up ringing the restaurant to find out about my food.
- Caroline Lynch

Bengal lancer
Pretty good all round.
- Dominic Rutterford

Take away
Food was mjuch more greasy and not as good as i remember at this place. Prob go elsewhere next time; shame, this place was a gem a year or so ago.
- Benjamin Nias

Rude staff would'nt give me a Mango chutney
The staff at bengal lancer were horrible to me and refused to give me a mango chutney when i asked for one. They don't have chicken curry on their menu and people must wait two weeks for them to update their menu. The discout for the food is only 10% and should be 25% as i collect the food in store. The food was very expensive and they reluctantly gave me a rum with no coke or wine.
- Samuel Westbury


- Jason Mclaren

Nice tuxedo
I had to warm it up when it arrived whcih was a little dissapointing. However the gentleman that delivered the curry was very polite and friendly and turned up in a tuxedo!!

- Alexandra Bareham

Take away
Easy, simple and convenient. Thanks!

First time I ordered from them - Delivery was quick, and the food was delicious. I'll definately be re- ordering from them. I would recommend them to others...
- andrew

Efficient system
Your online ordering system very good, user friendly etc. Would have been good to have confirmation call or text from restaurant itself. Also would be great to be able to do word search for restaurants whose Postcode I don't know - eg: The Holy Cow chain of curry houses. Bengal Lancer: Food was not great. Very very oily, even the samosas. Lamb dish was probably old mutton and expensive at the price. Peshwari Naan expensive £3.25 yet had almost no filling. I have not been to Bengal Lacer for a number of years so I was disappointed that had not maintained their standards.
- alex

best curry ever
Great food,excelllent value, would recomend it to everyone.
- jonathon ross

Superb service and fantastic food!

fantastic stuff
We ordered four different chicken curries from Bengal Lancer on New Years Eve along with some naan breads and rice. We all really enjoyed our curries, they were full of flavour and had nice big chunks of meat in them. Our Peshwari naans were also very tasty. The order took a while to arrive (over an hour) but it was New Years Eve. Will definetly order from here again!
