Established in 1970, the Royal Bengal has been serving its loyal patrons authentic dishes from the Indian subcontinent. Having just undergone its first major renovation of the dining room, we hope to continue to serve some of best balti dishes in Tamworth for many more years to come.

The place was nicely decorated. Must try it again sometime. Usually have Indian or Chinese takeaway on Saturday nights. We ought to make the effort & go... More

Excellent ambience and polite friendly staff who catered for my every need, the ubiquitous Cobra beer on draft and excellent food from my beautifully presented poppadoms to my made to order Lamb Pathia which was hot, sour and sweet exactly how it should be...I would highly recommend for value and service.

We've visited this restaurant many times now and along the way had great food and not so great food, good service and not so great service. However, we've now decided that they've had their last chance. On previous occasions we've had the owner and his son - all of 17 ish - giving us unsolicited relationship advice (!!!) and then...

Family friendly Indian. Good food, good prices. Probably the best Indian we've had for years, since we left the Midlands and moved to Norfolk.

The Royal Bengal is not easy to find. It is on Lichfield Street, up a little alleyway and then up some stairs which are not well signposted. We had starters and mains, both of which we were well cooked and well presented. The attention to detail by everyone there made it an enjoyable and affordable experience. I'd recommend it to...
