    We had an exceptional dinner including the tandoori trout at Bhang. The staff were super friendly and efficient, and Maestro Marty was at his finest behind the bar.

    Was a table of 6, with a variety of dietary requirements which were all catered for. Service was quick and the wait staff extremely friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. A good variety of drinks with some unusual cocktails. All in all, a great night!

    Every time we eat (and drink) at Bhang, I think we should go more often. The vibe is warm, welcoming and fun. The food is always great and the drinks list (especially the cocktails) is so interesting, diverse and consistently delicious that it needs repeat visits to fully appreciate it.

    Lovely food but a tad too spicy this time round to really enjoy dishes we’ve eaten before. Would be nice to have an indication of how spicy meals are on the menu. Burnt orange cinnamon cocktail was delicious!

    Yesterday I Dinned @ BHANG and was extremely disappointed. The chapati served was disappointingly hard and difficult to chew, detracting from the overall enjoyment of the meal. It seemed as though it had been left out for too long or reheated. The garlic naan was pathetic, they had used the preserved garlic with vinegar. And they sell naan in their menu but it’s not at all a naan. They use a rotating roti maker. While eating the daal, I discovered a metal scourer in the food which ended in my mouth. This not only ruined my meal but also posed a serious health hazard. The curries were cold. Not a good experience at all. Should report to the council about the health hazard. The only good thing was the cocktails and few entrees.

    Bhang is consistently delicious. We have been coming here for a few years now and I have never been disappointed. The food items are presented really nicely and the service is great. Food comes out quickly and each dish is so good. The cocktails are also very impressive. My favourite is the smokey old fashion. Do recommend.

    The place is inviting and has a nice vibe but the service was really slow. It took ages for someone to ask if we wanted drinks and a long wait before they were served. Same with the food order. The meal itself was okay, good but nothing to rave about. Serving sizes are generous and prices are average.

    My partner and I went for a birthday dinner on a Wednesday night. The food was delicious, I still can’t get over the tomato and sesame sauce that went with the Momos! They seemed very busy for a Wednesday night and it seemed like there was only 1 server covering both floors. Her name was Sangita and she did an absolutely amazing job making sure everyone was attended to, especially considering she was the only one! She had such a lovely attitude and was very knowledgeable when asked about the menu. Big props to Sangita! We will definitely be back again :)

    We love Bhang. The service is relaxed and friendly, and the food and drinks come pretty promptly after ordering. The food is so tasty with just the right amount of heat. The special cocktails are always interesting and delicious- the bartender takes such delight in thinking up new offerings! And Bhang is a 10 minutes walk from home- so perfect for a monthly treat!😁
