2 for 1 at The Golden Bengal

Mr Abdul Rashid has owned the business for over 24 years. Originally called the Golden Gate, it was one of the first restaurants to open in Horsforth. The building itself is an historic building part of the Horsforth village and used to be a horse saddlery in the early 1990s. Mr Rashid worked passionately, extremely hard and dedicated long hours establishing his restaurant's reputation to be of a good quality. He aimed to offer excellent service and introducing Bangladeshi and Indian cuisine to the area.

Sadly Mr Rashid passed away end of 2010, but his daughters are carrying on running the business, a dream of Mr Rashid's that they will not allow fading away. Mr Rashid was a well-liked and very popular person who was friendly and very welcoming. He had made a lot of friends in Horsforth and in around Leeds- friendships that date over two decades. Nasmin Rashid and her sisters have all teamed up to help restore The Golden Bengal, in Horsforth, to its former glory.

    Just had the best curry we've had in absolutely ages! Couldn't fault anything about the food, restaurant or the service. The starters were amazing and the curries and side dishes perfect. We were stuffed afterwards and very pleasantly surprised by the bill. Cannot recommend highly enough and it'll be a regular haunt from now onwards. Thank you for the friendly and attentive service. "

    One of the best meals we've had in ages. Would have been very good value without the tastecard discount but with this was even cheaper than a takeaway! If you like delicious curry's you need to visit as soon as you can. "

    Went here Tuesday night lovely place , very friendly staff. I like my curries hot and I got what I asked for very nice indeed. My wife likes a mild curry hers was also spot on. Had to query the bill because it was so cheap. Will defiantly be going again. "

    Have visited this restaurant many times, originally when Abdul Rashid owned it, and more recently since his daughters took on the reins.

    food is always outstanding - freshly cooked, "tweaked" to order if necessary, and it's the only Asian restaurant I've seen a specials board... Service can be a little slow - because of the food being prepared to order - but is attentive and helpful.

    No liquor licence - the ladies prefer not to have this, but no corkage charges, suitable glasses provided, and a fridge available to keep your lager chilled if necessary.

    I'll be continuing to visit regularly - Weds and Sundays have a fixed price deal anyway, but the card deal make it even better value otherwise "
