Now with two branches in curry-capital Birmingham and Coventry, Bengal Delight has been dishing up fine Indian cuisine for over twenty years. Head chef and part- owner Bash is passionate about Indian cuisine, but isn’t afraid to infuse international flavours and styles into his subcontinental dishes. Bengal Delight’s Edgbaston premises along Hagley Road is Bengal Delight’s newer flagship restaurant, and with the same quality cuisine that veterans have come to expect from Bengal Delight, served with a smile in stylish dining rooms, this Birmingham Indian restaurant is set to impress.
There was an excellent menu selection and the food we ordered was great - we would go back on our next visit to Birmingham
The art of Bengali cuisine is showcased to stunning effect at Birmingham’s Bengal
Delight. One of two successful Indian restaurants, Bengal Delight down Hagley Road
in Birmingham’s Edgbaston brings award-winning Indian cuisine to a wider audience.
And that particular audience is perhaps the most discerning in the UK. Birmingham is
famed for its curry-houses, being reputedly the birthplace of the balti – only the
boldest Indian restaurants make a splash in this highly selective dining scene.
Thankfully, head chef and part-owner bash, dubbed Best Celebrity Chef by
the Coventry Observer, is indeed a bold and pioneering advocate for Indian cuisine.
Striving for perfection, Bash has a diverse repertoire informed by the rich traditions of
Indian and Asian subcontinental cooking, but is unafraid to experiment, introducing
flavours and styles informed by international cuisines.
Bengal Delight is committed to the highest possible service and culinary standards, using nothing but the freshest, seasonal ingredients, spices ground on site to maintain Bengal Delight’s bespoke balance of flavours, and avoiding all artificial colours, stocks, and food additives. The selection at Bengal Delight’s Hagley Road premises is comprehensive – authentic shuruwat starters lead diners into the main event, barburcher shifarish (chef’s recommendations), ghar ke kamal (house specialities), and maha sumander ki bazaar (seafood specialities) are more than reliable choices, while Birmingham curry connoisseurs will probably be raising their eyebrows at the balti collection or the usual suspects – their discernment will be rewarded at this Edgbaston bastion of Bengali, Indian, and Pakistani cuisine.
