My family and I love the Bengal Clipper for the warmth and welcome of Azzad and his front-of-house team and the quality of the food. We feel very lucky that it's our local Indian!

I've been in this place several times and it's usually mostly empty tables, even on a Friday or Saturday night. The food is quite a good standard, and the portions are quite large, so it's fine if you're hungry. The service isn't great but nothing...More
