Bengal Lounge, The721 Government St, Victoria
If You Like To Be Served
Submitted Tuesday, May 30, 2006 - 2:47pm [Dine in]

Love this place. I was staying at the Empress for the weekend, and what better place to go for cocktails than the Bengal Lounge. The service was excellent. The waiter was attentive, personable and very attentive.

The jazz trio was phenomenal... they are "regular" performers there.

The ambiance is that of colonial India... as the name might lead to to guess... "Bengal Lounge"... excellent decor, dark woods, leather seats and an excellent view of the harbor (If you get a window table).

I recommend visiting this lounge if you are visiting the island. It is upscale without being pretentious.

Great Drinks & Goodlooking Crowd
Submitted Monday, May 8, 2006 - 1:59pm [Dine in]

This is a great place to grab a bite to eat while shopping on Granville Island (One of the many!) But, it is even better on weekend nights for cocktails. Although you usually have to wait for a table, it is worth it. The crowd is young and attractive, the food is good and the service is great.

I was in this past weekend for late evening drinks. The weather was great and the place was extremely busy. However, our waitress was great... cannot complain about the service. However, the mussels this time around were mediocre. Come on... you are on Granville Island... if nothing else, the seafood dishes should be outstanding all the time!!!

Nevertheless, great place to go for weekend drinks before heading out to the clubs.

Food Was Better... Not The Service
Submitted Monday, April 10, 2006 - 2:46am [Dine in]

I dropped by with my friends for the steak again. I was told that perhaps my first experience with steak at this establishment was just odd, as the steaks are usually really good, considering this is a chophouse. The steak was cooked as I requested, but I still don't get what the hype is about. Although the food was better this time around, service still lacked a great deal. Hire some decent waitresses!!!!

The jazz was great, the crowd not so much... too old! This time around, there were no attractive young girls at the bar either.

Good Fusion Food
Submitted Friday, April 7, 2006 - 1:45pm [Dine in]

This is an excellent place to dine if you like African cuisine tweaked with Indian cuisine. The food is on the spicy side, so if you like heat, this is the place to dine. Of course, additional hot sauce is available to further enhance the effect. The 'Mishkaki' (barbequed lamb skewers) is excellent. To end the meal, the Raas Malai was a nice dessert... a little too sweet, but quite nice. Priced well... given the location and ambiance. You get what you pay for.

The restaurant itself is really small, but the staff are personable and friendly. The decor is mediocre... African themed, nothing special... but the food makes up for it. Definately worth a try.

Fantastic Fusion
Submitted Tuesday, April 4, 2006 - 10:25pm [Dine in]

I dropped by yesterday for dinner and I must say the food was fantastic. I have been here many times before, and thought that I should post a review. The restaurant is Chinese/Indian fusion, and the food is incredible. If you like the respective cuisines, the fusion of the two is quite nice.

The service was great. The staff was very friendly like always. The make a patron feel welcome.

The ambiance is nothing spectacular, but the food and service definately make up for the lack-luster enviornment. Needless to say, I will definately be going back in the near future!
