The takeaway arrived in good time, however it was missing one item, was almost cold and the tubs of curry were only just over half full which was disappointing. I wouldn't mind this as much if the content of the tubs was of good quality, but there were no fresh ingredients added, no coriander, no chilli etc..it was purely just a very bland plain paste that you'd pick up from a wholesaler so that was very disappointing. This was the same for both the Madras and Korma. Upon calling the restaurant they said they'd deliver the salad whilst on the phone to another customer but there was no mention of a refund as obviously I no longer had the need for the salad as my curry was already cold. Very poor quality, don't be deceived by the large amount of reviews like I was! Order elsewhere!!!

Been living in Southampton for about 5 months now and one difficult problem I've had is finding a good Indian takeaway. tried a few before bengal paradise to no success and bought from them on Valentines Day. Great curry and good portions. will definitely be on our radar from now on. Was worried about how hot it would be because of distance but wasn't disappointed!

We placed a large order for 7 people and it arrived promptly, the restaurant also called straight away to let us know that one of our items was unavailable which was disappointing but we were glad to be told early on and the person on the phone was friendly and polite.
The meat dishes had no complaints but unfortunately the vegetable dishes we had were awful. 2 of us are vegetarian and we ordered the aubergine curry, which is the worst I have ever tasted. Aubergine curry is my favourite dish so I get it a lot but this one was barely edible. Most of the dish was just onions but the aubergine that was in it was hard, bitter and unsalted. Gross!
We also had a saag paneer which we were convinced was actually a saag cheddar! The cheese was stringy and completely melted, whereas every other paneer we've had has been in golden, lightly fried cubes. Overall this dish resembled a large pile of snot, and didn't taste much better.
The final vegetable dish was a tarka daal. Now lentil dishes can be a tad viscous, but this one was so watered down that as I eat it I imagined I was consuming the tears of all the vegetarians that had come before me.
The onion bhajis were so greasy that we could probably have wrung out the bags that they came in and collected enough oil to fry up all the leftover vegetable dishes to make bubble and squeak the following morning. Which we might actually have attempted, had the vegetable dishes not been so revolting.
Overall, if you're a meat eater then Bengal Paradise is alright, but for vegetarians this is definitely no Paradise.
