The slowest service for fast "street food" I have ever experienced. Don't bother if you are hungry. Their waiters are also rude, timid and don't seem to have confidence about what they are doing. We paid for a set menu and the amount of food we got was not satisfactory, and also came out so slow. We also had some dietary requirements on the table, but the food that person got as substitute for one meal only, even though he couldn't eat three meals due to them having the ingredients he couldn't eat. They also sent us the wrong beverage, because the waitress heard it wrong, then refused to change even though it had alcohol and we didn't want alcohol. So disappointed! It really ruined the night and put a bad taste in our mouths. We will not come back. Oh, and I also came here the first week it opened some years ago and it was the same style of service (slow, small food portions)... I returned this time hoping that would have improved... They didn't. What a shame.

Amazing! Every single dish we order was fantastic. We sat on the bar and the guy on the bar who served us was fantastic. Over all a fantastic night with 10/10 for food and ambiance!

I'm a little unsure how to rate this place It's something different,I'll give them that. We tried the kale bhaji,it's just batter. The honey glazed paneer,the smell of honey is evident but not much with the taste. The lamb cutlets,like the spices but it's a little burnt,the naan was a bit burnt too. The rice was soft and fluffy,I liked it. The goat curry,even the people sitting next to us had heard of how good it is. My missus liked it,she said the lamb was nice and tender. I wasn't that impressed,I felt like I've had these flavours before The coconut lassi,my missus didn't like it but the more I had,the more I liked it. It it's not for everyone Overall it's ok but I think my huge expectations of the goat curry didn't help

4.5/5! The vibe, interior and food were all amazing! The staff were knowledgeable and attentive. If we had to fault anything, the music was a little loud, but suited the mood we were in. The scallops, cauliflower and potato puffs are must try's!! Will absolutely come back and recommend to others.

Very loud music (noise)!! Service is disorganized, slow, and inconsistent. Had to reorder all the meals, came in the wrong order. Trouble communicating with waitstaff. Bread only came at the end of the meal. No one to provide water or service when needed. On the other hand, if those problems were fixed, the cooking is top notch. Skip most appetizers & cucumber salad -- the lamb, goat, duck, roti, etc are delicious !

I went with a group of 7 and we had the fixed menu option for $65. The staff was good, but the food portions were small, and the food is overpriced. Also, some of the dishes did you look fresh. Disappointed and I will not be going back.

Bang? More like Fizz. As a West Bengal native, I was quite excited to discover a "Bangladeshi street food" restaurant 15 min walking distance from my place. I also thought it would be a special treat for my elderly parents. The first thing that hit us was the loud music - the volume more suited to a nightclub rather than a restaurant. When I requested that the volume be turned down slightly so that my parents and I didn't have to shout at each other the whole night, the waiter who was seating us acted as though I'd asked for Assisted Dying Legislation to be passed. "Sorry, we can't just turn the music down." (Umm..why exactly? Is there a complex Parliamentary procedure involved? Does your stereo system not have a volume knob?) He also helpfully explained that even if he were to turn the music down, there would still be a lot of noise since "people are talking loudly around you." (Er here's a radical thought; maybe they're having to shout because the music is so loud?) The male waiter also then proceeded to be quite rude and brusque throughout the evening, plonking our dishes down without a word. (In contrast, his two female counterparts were much more pleasant and infinitely more professional.) The manager has also spared no effort whatsoever in creating any sort of Bangladeshi ambience - the walls are bare and unadorned, there is no real decor to speak of and there's nothing remotely Subcontinental let alone Bangladeshi about the playlist. I understand the need to cater to the mainstream but one doesn't walk into an Italian restaurant expecting to hear sitar music. We ordered the set menu and while the entrees appeared almost immediately, everything else came at a glacial pace. Ordinarily, I would not have minded the wait - it was a busy night - however since the ambience was so unpleasant, with our ears being continuously blasted by the doof-doof music it felt more like torture. While most of the food was palatable, the goat curry was so fibrous, we couldn't finish it. For a tab of $200 (without alcohol or drinks) - definitely not “street food” prices - I think we could be forgiven for expecting our main course not to have the texture of old shoe leather. Bang could learn a thing or two about being culturally authentic, while also catering to a hipster crowd (mind you, the two shouldn't be mutually exclusive in any case) from classier acts like the very popular Indu and Manjits on the Wharf. The menus state unabashedly "Bang is the favourite of celebrities and political leaders" a statement that I understand, is supposed to be ironic. Perhaps so is the term "Bangladeshi street food restaurant"?
