“Needs to catch up”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I used to go here years ago and yearn for the food they used to provide,`old style stock pot` maybe but robust and tasty.

They have in my opinion lost it big time over the last few years, On our last visit we sat at a table by the kitchen, it looked awful!! shabby, split lino on the floor and generally a bit grubby. Food was ok but didn`t eat much because of what I saw....

Many people I know feel the same so I can`t understand why they don`t spend a bit on the old place....it`s not as if people in Sutton don`t have a massive choice these days...but it would do really well IMO if things smartened up and they offered the food they used to do!!

May be however they are satisfied with the drunks on Friday & Saturday who probably don`t know any better!!

“Best curry in Birmingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Been coming to the Bengal all my life! And have enjoyed lots of meals here!. If you want good portions, reasonably priced food and fantastic service the Bengal is the place.

“Proper Indian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Been going to the Bengal for 30 odd years now and its as good today as its always been. Service is polite and the food is tasty, especially the hotter dishes. Long may it continue.

“Old School Indian Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This restaurant has been around since the early/mid seventies and is still there. The menu is classic 1970's and we visit the place about 3 times a year just for the nostalgia!. The food is good quality and the portions huge. The service is very good the decor is only slightly advanced from 1975!
All in all a good restaurant

“Tired and sad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This restaurant was the only indian restaurant in Boldmere when we came to live here in 1985. The food is really good, service very good. We don't like the set up regarding the collection of take aways. We would not like someone hovering while we were eating. Needs some tlc but well worth a visit. Prices average. There is so much choice in Boldmere.
