I can’t do nothing.,,, great apology,, I will be telling all my friends and family how disgusting your food and your service is absolutely rubbish.. it has caused such an awful atmosphere in my house as it was my choice of where to go.More

We ate here last night . As visitors we chose it after reading reviews. We were not disappointed. Beautiful restaurant and amazing loos. Our mixed starter was delicious and ample for sharing. I had chicken tikka pathia and my husband had lamb jalfriezi. Wow ,...it was great . Good portions. The guy serving us was so polite and friendly, nothing too much bother. If you’re in Darlington then give this restaurant a visit, we’ll definitely go back . Well done to all the team there.More

Delicious food, great price and good portion size. Last night we ordered chicken dansak, pilau, onion bhaji and an express meal of hakatori Donner and chips last night. There's enough left for us to finish off tonight.

This was our first visit to the Star of Bengal and it won't be our last. Despite being very busy, the service was first class. There's plenty of choice on the menu and the quality of the food was excellent. The staff were lovely and...the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Well worth a visit for anyone looking for a very good Indian Restaurant.More

We have just had the 2 for £24 meal for two as a takeaway. Ready bang on time for collection, still warm when got home, but put mains and naan in the oven to keep them that way while we had our poppadoms, dips and...fabulous tasty starter. Omg, the mains of mushroom pilau, bombay potato, lamb bhuna, chicken tikka, and naan, so delicious and very generous too. We will be having more food from here.More

Visited last week with a friend who had just had surgery, asked for a bottle of wine and 2 starters, they voiced they didn’t normally just serve starters but we got them and it was really nice. Visited last night (sat) with my husband, went...in at 10pm, bearing in mind it’s the Saturday before Xmas, lots of parties out, restaurant wasn’t over busy and we were told we would have to order straight away, he came with the menus and stood and waited while we ordered! Felt very rushed and uncomfortable! If they are going to close at 10pm they should advertise that! Sorry but twice in one week poor service, won’t be going back!!!!More

Just fancied an Indian after a few nights away in Edinburgh. Quick Google and this restaurant came up. Food was lovely. Melt in the mouth chicken. Excellent quality of foods and came at a nice level of heat that we asked for. Returning in 2...weeks for a birthday celebration.More
