Finding a bad place to eat Indian food in Birmingham is actually quite hard. However the Bangla lounge excels about the norm and everything is cooked to perfection. Added to that the really friendly service and the good decor makes this a winner.

We had a takeaway from the restaurant to try the food. The meal was excellent so we decided to go for a sit down meal. We were greeted in a very friendly manner and shown to a nice table in the restaurant. The restaurant was quiet but had a nice atmosphere. We ordered our meals and had our drinks delivered. The meal was excellent with a very nice sauce which was not greasy. We complimented the Tarkha Dahl sauce which came with the meal. One of the best we have had in an Indian restaurant. We paid for the meal and they gave us another portion of Tarkah Dahl to take home. All in all a great meal in a very nice restaurant. Well worth a visit for people who like their Indian meals.

I have been to The Bangla Lounge many times and keep meaning to write a review. I made a late booking on Friday afternoon for Friday night. Just me and a friend (two females) The food as always is top rate The staff are wonderfully friendly with a great sense of humour and an extremely good knowledge of what they are serving you. We spent over 3 hours there and felt relaxed and uncrushed. Great atmosphere whether you are going in a large party of just two of you. If you haven't been then book a table!!!!!

In a city that has many good Indian restaurants it makes it more difficult for a place to really stand out.

The restaurant has a very welcoming vibe, and the staff are terrific, being warm, chatty and cheerful. They are more than happy to make recommendations for dishes, or just the best accompaniments to the dishes ordered.

From 8 or 9 visits so far, the food has always been consistently delicious. The spicing is just right and allows all the flavours of a dish to shine. And should you want something slightly different, they are always happy to oblige. During one visit, a member of the party asked if a few changes could be made to a dish, and the restaurant could not have been more accommodating. A 5 minute conversation on preferred ingredients led to the creation of an off menu vegetarian curry.

Once a week (on Thursdays), the restaurant also does an off-menu night and cooks a variety of meat, chicken, fish and vegetarian curries. This is a great way to experience a wider range of dishes than ordering from the menu.

A great place in a city known for its curries.

Ate hear tonight for the first time after moving to the area last year. staff were very friendly. atmosphere was lovely. all food was very tasty and full of flavor. only down side was that there are no desserts. that said, we will definately be returning. we recently dined at lassan eatery restaurant a few doors down, which we were thoroughly excited about after seeing their excellent reviews but were very disappointed, so now after trying bangla lounge we are very happy to have found such an excellent quality indian restaurant so locally.
