Birmingham is flush with Indian restaurants and balti houses, but restaurants that cater specifically to Bengali cuisine are less common. Straddling Bangladesh and India’s West Bengal, the food from this region emphasises seafood and lentils alongside vegetables and rice, subtle spiciness, and delectable desserts. All of these are on offer at Birmingham’s Khana Peena, where the traditional Bengali multiple-course meal structure is also honoured. This all lends Khana Peena, down Stratford Road in Hall Green, an unrivalled authenticity.
Khana Peena’s signature dishes are mouthwatering examples of traditional Bengali cuisine given a contemporary twist for Birmingham’s notoriously discerning fans of Indian and Asian subcontinental cuisine. Sylheti jinga chillies, nawabi murgh, fiery tandoori platters, lamb korai, spiced vegetable platters, and the house balti are all firm favourites at this Indian restaurant down Stratford Road in Hall Green. Khana Peena’s fusion dishes submit tender cuts of lamb to the honey-roasted treatment, while Bengali traditions are upheld by the incredible selection of chef’s recommendations, catch of the day seafood, karai and jalfrezi dishes.
While Khana Peena’s fine Bengali cuisine can be ordered to takeaway (and they offer a hefty discount for pick-up orders), dining in at this Birmingham Indian restaurant is a real treat. Khana Peena’s premises down Stratford Road in Hall Green are opulent and modern. Mood lighting, stylish furnishings and a curving bar make Khana Peena ideal for a romantic rendezvous or an impressive celebration. Khana Peena is one of a group of Birmingham Indian restaurants, and with over two decades worth of experience, this Bengali specialist can comfortably rank as one of the area’s best.
