Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The menu has a nice variety of northern and southern Indian cuisine. The service was a little off for us, but not sure if that was because we had an early reservation and the restaurant hadn't picked up yet. The food was A-mazing! The Lamb Pepper Fry beautifully fell apart on the fork, and the lemon rice was the perfect complement to the bold flavor of the lamb. The Cheese Dosa was like Indian comfort food. Dip the crispy cheesey crepe in the zippy veggie soup and sauces. If you like it hot, the chicken Tikka will light your mouth on fire in a good way! It's BYOB, so bring a Victory growler or stop in to the State store a few stores down on your way. We'll be back for sure."

  • "A little tricky to find tucked away in a corner of the Ashbridge Plaza, the interior is not what one expects next to ChuckeeCheese. At 5;30 on a Sunday, my friend & I were the only diners. I hope traffic picked up as the evening went on. Attention has been paid to every detail. A toothsome combination of north & south Indian cuisine. My friend had trouble with even the most lightly spiced dishes, but she is an admitted 'heat-phone.' Definitely worth a return visit with a different friend. Bangle deserves every success. BYO, yes!"

  • "Fantastic dining experience. As a party of four, we ordered almost a dozen choices as it was our first visit. Everything was extremely flavorful and beautifully presented. Waitstaff eager to help and attentive. Can't say enough positive things about Bangles other than we will be back and have already recommended the restaurant to all of our friends."

  • "Our group of 6 descended on Bangles looking for a night of authentic Indian food and dining experience. We received that and more. The food was exceptional. The manager encouraged us to eat with our hands explaining the connection between body and health in Indian culture. We selected items from the chef's tasting menu and then shared them around the table. As the manager said, "tare and share." Perfect. It was a lovely evening for the whole family."

  • "What a find! Bangles has what it takes ~ excellent food and service. I was pleasantly surprised when our server appeared at our table with a smile and knowledge. Two things I typically don't find when I go an Indian restaurant. Maddie knew the menu, knew the food and made suggestions about good things to try since it was our first trip. There was so much I wanted to order. I can't wait to go back and I hope you find your way there and support this restaurant. They are up to something wonderful!!"

  • "Southern India cooking is different and well worth trying. Yes, some of the menu items at Bangles are traditional, but many are not. Be prepared for the assertive use of spices. The Dahi Vada is subtle and beautiful. The lamb pepper fry is incendiary. The curried goat (with bones) provides slow, careful eating with huge flavor and succulent tender morsels - much superior to lamb. There are many good Indian restaurants in the area. This one should be tried."

  • "We dined here with our daughter, an Indian cuisine afficianado. Freindly, prompt service. Lovely decor. Many Indian families were dining here. Every dish was delicious. We had an appetizer to share, three main dishes, naan, and dessert. Love that it is BYOB."

  • "Upscale, authentic Indian cuisine, at a great price! Owners are very friendly and excited about what they do. We loved it at Bangles and continue to go back!"

  • "We have now been to Bangles twice. The first time was an experiment. The second time we took out of town guests who love Indian food. If possible, we were even more impressed the second time than the first. Our guests, who have traveled to India, were wowed by the food at Bangles. We're now looking forward to trying a lunch Thali. We would like to encourage others to try this special place and give it the support it deserves."

  • "I read about Bangles and finally made the pilgrimage last Saturday evening. It was well worth the effort. My husband and I frequent Indian restaurants and Bangles is by far the best we've experienced in the Philadelphia area. Traditional dishes were prepared with very fresh ingredients which made them sing. In addition, there were some great new taste treats, especially the roasted fennel curry leaf soup and the coconut and fennel flan. We're already planning our next visit."

  • "The western Philadelphia suburbs have been good hunting for Indian food lovers for sometime. It just got better...lots better. The decor is corporate cafeteria, but the food (and service) are not, at all. Palak Paneer, my personal measure of every Indian kitchen, was outstanding, richly spiced spinach with tender-chewy cheese cubes. The lamb pepper fry (not a very Indian name) was aggressive, but not overly spice hot. Portions are for sharing. The local servers were attentive and very helpful. Give it a try! "

  • "We were seated right away in this big space. Well decorated. Good server. He was very helpful with descriptions of dishes. They were out of the listed special (goat) but the server recommended the lamb dish instead. It was very good, but quite spicy! My dates dish (chicken in a tomato and youghurt sauce) was wonderful! Well spiced but not too hot. I look forward to returning!"

  • "My wife and I have now been to Bangles twice in the past month. Both times we had quality food, great service, and a nice environment for dinner. The food is authentic Indian food with fresh ingredients and aromatic spices. Besides the food, the wait staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to serve. Finally, the restaurant is BYOB and doesn't charge a cork fee. I highly recommend Bangles. "

  • "They told us up front it was spicy and most dishes could not be adjusted. I thought mine was great but I love spice and heat but the wifes had difficulty and said they would not be going back."

  • "This new Indian restaurant is a great addition to the restaurants in Downingtown. The cuisine is Southern Indian so different from the other Indian restaurants that I have eaten. The food was excellent. The service was not the best but they were trying. The restaurant just opened 5 weeks earlier so they are trying to fine tune things. I would definitely recommend (and already have ) this to friends."

  • "The area needed an upscale Indian restaurant. The food is slightly different than you will find in most typical Indian restaurants, and that is a good thing. It is high quality, interesting cuisine. The service we had was excellent in directing us towards different dishes and attentive. The atmosphere is pleasant as well. Well worth the visit!"

  • "What a great addition to Downingtown!! I love Indian food and this was great. Free popadoms and chutney is a great start. The vegetable pakora wasnt really what I think of when I think pakora but the light battered potato and squash had good flavor. The Madras fish curry was a little too spicy for my husbands taste but it was delicious and complex. The Murgh Makhani was also really really good. I'm used to eating family style in Indian restaurants and ordering rice and breads to share rather than having them come on the plate with my curry but that's a small thing and not really a complaint. Overall very very good food."
