Moored up in Hopwas and grabbed a cab to this restaurant(cab roughly 6.50) so glad we did. The food was superb ,the breads were delicious, and the service was really friendly. Definitely would visit again. The prices were also really reasonable

I explained what I wanted, without being specific, and left them to deliver whatever they thought appropriate. I had a really brilliant meal of sole starter on a beautifully spiced bed of mashed potato, followed by really spicy chicken. Service was spot on.

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.
