I have had many a good meal in the Brunel and Bengal Raj restaurants. Ive found that when going to the same familiar restaurants you order the same meal over and over but at the Brunel Raj every meal is a favourite of mine so that never happens. Id highly recommend it to anyone!

‘I think all were impressed with the efficiency with which the restaurant coped with the ad hoc order from such a large party. Many other places have the annoying habit of requiring people to order in advance. They also handled well our rather imprecise information on the number of people that were coming and were on hand to move tables to accommodate the numbers.’ Professor Alan Champneys

Not what it was

I went to the Brunel Raj back in March 2016 and was very impressed at the quality of the food. Each dish was delicious and flavoursome (albeit a tad over salted). So when my family came to visit at the beginning of this month I recommended us going again. What a mistake this was! Whilst the service was good (we were seated straight away and the waiter was polite and helpful) the food, however, was not very poor. We ordered the Lamb Rezala, Hundi Gosht, Chicken Chana Masala, Chicken Saag and Chicken Balti, all of which tasted almost identical having clearly used the same base sauce to make them all, They were also all very plain tasting, none spicier than the other. The chicken was very dry and the lamb was tough and chewy. Also the next day the 3 of us that were sharing food ended up with explosive diarrhoea! I don't know if it was just a different chef to the one we had last time, or if it was because it was only the 2nd of January and all they had was old food, but whatever the situation we were not at all happy.

Booking for 14

Booked a table for 20 - then rang again to change to 14 when arrived they said no booking was made - then the man behind the bar said there was one - but no table available - this was very disappointing as there was 3 birthdays to celebrate - won't be going there again

Let down

I ate at the Brunel Raj last night 10/02/09 and all the food was excellent. In particular the Lamb Balti was superb, beautiful sauce and the meat was exceptionally tender. Can’t wait to come back and try some more dishes.

Having been a customer for over 12 years, the food and service only gets better. The best curry in the whole of the UK is cooked at Brunel Raj. The staff are wonder and so helpful. Clifton village would not be the same without Brunel Raj

We were fortunate enough to have been accommodate in your restaurant 2 weeks ago. There were 20 of us and it was the night after our wedding. The food was superb thank you so much and we were beautifully looked after by charming staff. Friends of mine were over from Ireland and they had eaten in your restaurant before and said it was the best Indian food they had ever had and I’d have to say I’d second them on that. Thank you very much, Cliona Axford

Plenty of sauce perfect spicyness lovely soft chicken which can be eaten just with a spoon it is so soft and has been cooked nice and slowly peshwari nan was light and fluffy and not too sweet I would not hesitate to recommend the food and staff. First Class. Mr Sinclair Clifton.
