Coming from an Indian-American, good Indian food is hard to find. I love Bengal's though!

I took someone here that does not eat "Indian" food. In fact, she doesn't eat much of anything -extremely picky. We both absolutely loved it. The sampler was a good way to determine which sauce we wanted. It was all amazing. I had the Bangkok Fire with Veges & Paneer. My friend orders the Chicken Samosas. Next time I have to bring more people so we can all order something different to sample it all! Don't forget to have a Leechy Basil Mojito!

The staff was friendly and helpful. Our waiter was courteous, efficient and generally a pleasure. When we got the bill, I wanted to send it back & tell them "this is not enough!" The decor was beautiful, seating was very comfortable, the noise level was perfect.

I can't wait to come back. I just want to know one thing? Are you guys moving to Houston, or am I going to have to move to Dallas?!!!

Pros: Everything (food, price, staff, decor)

Cons: I live in Houston! Please come here!

I am still dreaming of the tastes... subtle, unfolding...oh my! Our waiter, Ryan, ordered us a sampler so delicious we could have stopped there. Then he customized our orders to perfection. To me it was a magical intro. to a new cuisine, served up in the nicest way to please Americans. To those in our party familiar with Indian fare, it also got rave reviews. Did I mention how elegantly comfortable Bengal Coast is? Dramatically lit with warm orange decor. And very reasonably priced...I may just have to return to Dallas until it expands to the East Coast!

Having travelled to LA, NY, Chicago, Boston etc, in USA, all over India and many parts of world including Europe, and South Asia, I was looking for a place to eat in 75207 and found Bengal Coast. Without looking into their site or menu, just called got directions and went in. I was pleasnatly surprised with variety of drinks, sumptous and complimenting appertizers and good main dish that can be ordered in different ways. Menu was good, service was great. Only mixup was that I got white rice although I had ordered brown and should not have Italian Teramisu on waiters recommendation, should have stuck with Indian dish. Over all decor, food quality, service and ambiance will make me go back there again and again. I have to try other items on the menu including some of things that Chef came out and told me about.

Pros: Best fusion at any place

Cons: should not have ordered Terimasu

I ordered something weird, because I like to explore different tastes. So we went for luch and my husband had the fried rice. Since we share most of the time anyway, I almost took his plate from him. . It was really, really good. The bathrooms were really weird, the stalls are just little rooms and you walk out into a main sink that everyone shares. . I'm a liberal, but there was something that felt really weird about this.. Either way, the rice made up for it. . . Thanks for a great lunch!

Pros: Fried Rice

Cons: Uni-sex sinks

Bengal Coast is so much more than your strip mall Indian buffet. (Not that I mind strip mall Indian) but the quality of ingredients as well as the skilled preperation here elevates this from your typical pan-asian concept restaurant to something really special. We had the Panang beef curry which was surprisingly un-saucy but flavorful, with tender pieces of sirloin tucked into a lightly spiced pilaf. The Green Tea martinis are wicked, but delicious as well. Atmosphere is divine-Service is on point. I will definitely eat here again.

Pros: Ambiance: Great lighting and romantic atmosphere. Food: 5-star preparation and delivery

Cons: Food is a little on the subtle side but the flavors grow on you

.

Except for the samosa, everything was disappointingly bland, and filled with garbanzo beans. The paneer was definitely two or three days old, and the sauce used in a couple of the entrees had a distinct flavor of having been saved overnight in the refrigerator and then used the next day and then saved overnight again and used again and again until it rant out - my point is: the food did not taste like it was made from fresh ingreditents. The bombay chaat salad was filled with stale rice puffs and again loaded with chick peas. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

Positive: The waiter was very polite, service was as fast as kitchen could keep up, and ambience is very good. You feel good as soon as you enter the restaurant - brightly lit, good decor, a banana tree in the middle of a courtyard-style dining room.

Wonderful! I have never had the opportunity to eat Indian food. My friend took me there for lunch. We enjoyed the Indian version of lettuce wraps. They were delicious and not too spicy. My entree was two kabobs filled with grilled chicken rolled in a cream cheese sauce. There was rice and tempura vegetables with some special Indian spices. Everything had such great flavor. The portions were huge. I had leftovers today at work. Several of my co-workers were dying to know where I had gone to lunch. Needless to say, I will go back. I'm anxious to try something else on their menu.

We were looking for something new to try and someone had mentioned this new place in the Centrum that was supposed to be different and tasty. The valet stand is in the back of the Centrum, on Welborn, so very easy to get in and out. We didn't realize it was right next to the Club so went there first for a drink on the patio then across the way to Bengal for food. I'm not much of a big meal eater so usually go for the appetizer portions on any menu - I was in heaven! I love Samosa's, having a middle eastern sister in law, so was loving the spices and the texture, flavors, everything, definitely do the combo plate. I pretty well covered the app menu with the Samosas, Small Sticks and Lettuce Boats - I suggested to the waitress doing a "sampler platter" if that wasn't too "Americanized" for this place. My fiancee is a big meat eater so had the Beef Penang Curry - not to mention eating most of my small sticks. We thought everything was amazing - flavors, presentation, portion size, surroundings - very cool place! Mark, the owner even came by the table to see how we were doing. Big smile, can tell he loves what he's doing and obviously knows how to do it well. We will definitely be back.

Pros: Great location, something new but will hopefully stick around, amazing flavors!

Cons: Having to make a choice on the appetizers.

Bengal Coast has a great assortment of food and drink options at excellent prices. The location is great as well. I have been here many times since it opened and have never been dissappointed with my food. I did have my birthday party here and the service that night was not good at all and it took forever to get out of there but all other times I have been there the service was as excellent as the food. I highly recommend you try this place out for yourself.

The restaurant has a great ambience and the food is not too bad either. Do not go there expecting authentic South Asian / South East Asian food as they have given the food their own twist. Their 'Indian Ranch' is especially interesting. But the service is AWFUL to say the least. I went there in a party of 12 on a Saturday evening and they were not even half as busy as other places are. The service was very slow and I was almost through half my meal when the waitress showed up to ask if we needed something. It took them 1 and a 1/2 hours to bring the checks, process them and return the cards back to party. In fact after asking for the checks, it took them half an hour just to bring them to us, so it was not even the processing of 12 checks that took that much time. On a "busy" Saturday night I can understand some delay, but 1.5 hours is just pushing it too much. They are either understaffed or they just don't care about making parties wait. The waitress said that they were extremely busy and that lead to the delay ... but if they were really THAT busy then their top priority should have been to clear tables for waiting parties which obviously did not happen judging from our 1.5 hr delay.

Bottom line ... go here in a party only if you have the time to waste sitting around .... would not recommend for parties greater than 4 people ....

You have got to go to the Bengal Coast! The food is fantastic, the concept is very unique - fusion of food from India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Atmosphere is really cool. I went for a birthday party and we tried just about everything on the menu. Be sure to try the Thai Lobster Samosas and the Bangkok Prawn.

This place is INCREDIBLE!!! I am from India and I am having a birthday party there for my mom. I am tired of the same old Indian restaurant buffets that are open around Dallas so I did some research on the internet and found Bengali Coast. I went in and met with Mark (the owner) and he was extremely welcoming and went over and beyond to help me plan the perfect party. I did not ask for it but he brought samples of some of the dishes on the menu for me to try and I was just amazed at the high quality and taste of the food. I think the main reason for this is he has chefs that are from India that make the recipes and create these great dishes. And the service was just as great. I told my brother I have never been to a restaurant in Dallas that offered me the food AND the service that I received when I visited them for the first time. Mark personally brought someone over to my table that sat with me and helped me plan my entire menu and party details. I felt like I was literally a family member of theirs. The restaurant is beautiful......the service is great.....the food is incredible.....you can't ask for more than that.
