A word from Bengal Tiger Restaurant
Bengal Tiger restaurant in the City of London is just a few minutes’ walk from Blackfriars tube station and an equally short stroll from St Pauls Cathedral. This Indian restaurant offers northern Indian cuisine in a sleek, spotlit setting. A cool architectural sculpture separates the bar from the dining room and the place is decorated throughout with tiger-themed art. Bengal Tiger differentiates itself from the curry houses that dot the City by its selection of chef’s specials. Food is freshly cooked to order and is prepared with fine ingredients that have been sourced from all over the world. If you’re looking for authentic Indian cuisine in a smart, relaxed City setting, then look no further than the Bengal Tiger. The sikandari raan is a magnificent version of slow-cooked spiced lamb shank. Chicken jaipuri in a medium tamarind sauce, and a tandoori-cooked duck akberi masala are equally memorable to the taste.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The staff were not pleasant and even tried to argue with us when we noted that one meal was wrong and the order was for chicken and not lamb. Also one of the meals was not cooked through and had to be replaced. Food was ok but will most likely go elsewhere next time around"

  • "Very popular with some overseas guests I had to book an informal dinner for, they loved it."

  • "Food was good and not greasy like some Indians can me however was expensive for 2 people for what it is... Or typical Indian. Good food but standard."

  • "As a regual group of curry eaters we know that some restaurants struggle when they are even half full. Tonight the service was swift and friendly at a pre-Christmas packed place. Food was good and well presented. Cost was on the high very side."

  • "Worst service I'd received in a restaurant. The waiters were rude and took a very long time to serve our group. One of the waiters put his fingers in my friend's food (in front of her) before serving it to her. They tried to force us to pay service charge but we refused. Food was average at best."

  • "As I am from Birmingham, the home of the curry :+) i had great expectations of this restaurant. I found the food, service and location for a dinner I hosted to be faultless. The booking was easy and the service was great, especially as there was 12 of us. if you would like a curry in London, this is worth a strong consideration. I would highly recommend."

  • "A group from work tried this centrally located curry house. It served standard curry dishes and did them well. The naan was very fresh and everyone enjoyed their food. We had a round table which made the evening more sociable. It was not busy but we went on a Tuesday evening."

  • "Came across this nice little restaurant in an alleyway near St. Paul's Cathedral. Decor and setting was nice, but the restaurant was EMPTY, as in, there were more staff than patrons. Ordered a samosa entree which was very small in portion size, and expensive, but tasty. The mains were decent, the curry was a bit oily, but overall a decent experience. Worth visiting again."

  • "Excellent quality of food, great ambience and service"

  • "Been a coupel of years since my last visit but it was unchanged. The quality of the food is very good, I would recommend the Chicken Tikka Masala and Mushroom Pilia rice as a great main meal. The waiters were attentive and the food was hot and tasty wil the kingfisher beer was cold. Price wise it is on the expensive side at £25 per person for once course an a drink so maybe they ned ot look at some deals to help pull customers in given it is off the main road."

  • "Bengal Tiger Restaurant has a well stocked bar with a bar area to sit at before moving to a table, which we particularly liked. You are spoilt for choice on a large selection of starters, mains, vegetarian dishes & rice/breads. Interestingly, duck featured frequently on the menu which we had never seen in an Indian restaurant before, and everyone agreed the Duck Tikka was one of the nicest dishes. The Roopchanda (pomfret - fish) dish was a little too spicy but tasty nonetheless, and the selection of dishes from the set menus was spot on. The waiters were very attentive + happy to amend orders when appropriate. Whilst a little more expensive than Brick Lane restaurants, the food quality was much better & we will definitely be going back."

  • "Good food, good service, and generally a nice restaurant. The house wine was the only fault; next time I'll stick to Cobra."

  • "Booked this last minute as Toptable's offer looked like a bargain. The restaurant is down a quiet side street and looks quite impressive with Asian fusion decor and high backed dinning chairs. When we arrived there was only one other table dinning so considering we were only one of two tables the service wasn't all that attentive - it took us about fifteen minutes to catch someone's attention to get the bill at the end! The food was good, though the tandoori dishes could have been a bit hotter and the house wine was very reasonable. Overall was a nice experience for a group of hungry dinners but I can't say I would book for a more special occasion."

  • "Great food. Went for a business lunch - would definitely recommend."

  • "This restaurant is in a great location tucked down inside the back streets near Blackfriars. The food was reasonably good, but not mind blowing. Service was pretty good considering they had two very large christmas parties in. The decor was pretty cool, with a giant sculpture of a tiger skeleton in the centre of the room."
