I was very surprised at how good the food was. My husband doesn't really like spicy food but he really enjoyed his dish. I loved my dish and will be back again. Go try it out!!

The overall experience was very good . The food, ambience and service levels were good too . I would like to mention about the server Phani who is a very honest man who refused to take extra tip because I overlooked the gratuity part in first place. I must say he is doing a tremendous job and everyone should learn from his honesty and dedication.

The only authentic quality Indian restaurant in a 30 mil radius of Phila not in New jersey. The food is wonderful and all the Nans are well made and it unusual to find fabulous Dosa which there are full array of.

Have been to Bangles several times. My all time favourite Indian restaurant. However was very disappointed with the service. Super slow service. Never experienced this delay ever. Highly disappointed but food was up to the mark.

Hands down the best Indian restaurant I have ever eaten at and easily in the top 3 of my favorite places in the country. This is at least my third or fourth review of Bangles and one of the biggest compliments I can give this place is regarding their consistency. Every single meal I have had here has been excellent with the use of high quality, fresh ingredients. I recently relocated to Florida so a stop at Bangles is a must when I'm visiting home. The Bhel Puri and Gobi Manchurian remain my favorite appetizers while the Murgh Makhani and Chicken Chettinad are my go to entrees.

We went here for the first time on my husband's birthday. We were early but there was only two other couples in the restaurant so we had it pretty much to ourselves. The server took time to share with us what the options were and that we could change anything we liked. We ordered the chef's tasting menu or three plates for $27. We both were impressed with the excellent choices and the food was incredible. It was beautifully prepared, gorgeous plates and deliciously different spices and flavors. The brought a dessert plate with a candle for my husband and it was a frozen orange creamy ?? with cardamom - something I have never tasted before and yet crave even now. We will definitely be back and hope that more people discover this neighborhood gem so they get the attention and customers they deserve.

The service was the worst. It took them 40 Minutes before the Appetizer showed up. When the dinner showed 1hr after ordering, we got one order and the other order took another 10 minutes arrive. Food is good but the service plainly sucks.

The food here is always excellent: authentic south indian cuisine. The dosas are perfect, and sambar is simply delicious! The weekend lunch buffet used to be slightly better before: for example, the vegetarian dry vegetables or two that they used to have were missing, as were the vadas, last weekend from the spread. Also, the noodles were WAY too spicy to be eaten even by an adult, let alone children. In the past, the spice level has always been mild/perfect, so please take care and go back to this. If even one dish is over-spicy like this, it reduces options for vegetarians. We just ended up ordering a la carte, which was excellent.

Bangles is probably the most consistent restaurant that I have ever eaten at. This is at least the tenth time that I have been here and, aside from some of the menu changing, the quality of food and ingredients has been extremely consistent. This is hands down my favorite place in the area and by "place" I don't just mean Indian restaurant. I mean my favorite restaurant to eat at in general. The scallop appetizer is fantastic but my favorite thing on the menu is the Bhel Puri so if you're new to Bangles and are looking for something to try I highly recommend that as well as the Gobi Manchurian if you like spicy food. The Aloo Papdi is amazing as well.

We went specifically for the dosa, which was spicy and delicious. However, the coconut chutney seemed watered down, and the tomato chutney a tad too sweet. We enjoyed the papadums on the table but found the weird glop of what they called onion chutney just off and not adding to the flavor of the papadum. The price for the daha wada was high for just one, granted it was a huge dahi wada. It was delicious, but perhaps 3 or 4 smaller ones would have been nice for the table to share. All in all, we enjoyed our meal, but I would not drive out of my way to eat here. Also the servers were not terribly familiar with the food.

The food, with respect to portions, quality, etc. was good and probably very authentic judging by the clientele. However, it was way to spicy (and I like spicy food) and very few dishes have the flexibility to be "tamed down". Even the simple Samosa was hot! In addition, the water served is room temperature becuase that is what the Indian clientele prefer. Ice water should be offered, especially if you are obviously not of Indian ethnicity.

Terrific and authentic South Indian food, which is hard to find in Philly or PA: love this place! Their buffet is also excellent--unlike the average North Indian restaurant, each item in the buffet is tastes unique, fresh, and is not over-spicy. A mix of South Indian, Indian-Chinese, and North India makes this buffet a great value. The service is always excellent here.
