Exactly what I expected from a local Indian food restaurant. Friendly and attentive service - good portions of tasty food.

The kitchen is a bit slower than I'd expect - I'd defiantly call ahead of you want to order take away.more

I love local Indian restaurants in London and the Bengal Lancer is definitely a new favourite in Kentish Town.

The food was excellent, they did prepare a special request which was not on the menu, the dishes that are supposed to be spicy are spicy, the staff is very friendly and the pricing is good.

Just great, will come back!more

I fear writing a review for the Bengal Lancer as I don't want it to get TOO popular :D. This place looks so unassuming, plonked near Kentish Town station, flanked by random chicken shops and charity shops you would half expect it to be crap. Oh boy how wrong you would be. It has a really cheapy feel interior with the faux high backed leather chairs and the bright lights, but looks may be...more

The best tandoori we've found in the area, the chicken and prawn tandoori especially.

If you like really spicy, try the dhaba lamb, it's amazing but will blow your head off. The green chilli mas is also really tasty with plenty of heat.

The only con is that the food can be inconsistent, sometimes it's really oily and the ingredients aren't always fresh (tinned spinach)more

Sentimentally, I am giving this place 5 Stars, but I am trying to keep this review credible.

The Bengal Lancer looks a lot like a 3-star London curry restaurant. It differs in two respects:

-- the food is terrific. Terrific.

-- the staff is very attentive to your whole dining experience

It's a local spot with extremely good food and very nice/thoughtful staff. You know what? Screw it: 5 Stars.more
