“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Had to meet three colleageus on a cold monday night in Harborne and found the Bangla Lounge. What a treat we had the special offer menu which to our surprise turned out to be excellent quality and value. The starters, main meals and vegetable dishes wnet down well and we all agreed they were delicious.
We had complimentary a side dish, ice cream and brandy, and the waiters very friendly and attentive with out being intrusive.
Well worth a visit, we all will be going back

“Great location and a lot of choice”
Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

The humble Bangla Lounge, tucked up an alley off the High St is quite a find. The restaurant is compact but the service and food reflect such a high quality, it really is punching above its weight.

A large platter of chutneys will welcome you with your poppadoms. The menu offers a lot, the Lamb in South Indian spices is a particular highlight for me. It all represents excellent value, such that, I have been twice in the space of a week with different sets of friends staying around.

I suspect I am starting to get recognised! After being served sweets and orange segments, we are often given cognac for the gents and Baileys for the girls. Very civilised and actually a very good way to end a curry.

Happy days. Visit here if you want a curry and you're in the neighbourhood.

“The best in the area”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Started going to The Bangla lounge in Harborne a couple of years ago and it has been a favourite ever since. A great varied menu with all the old favourites on it but also a range of chefs specials which are excellent and not seen at other Indian restaurants. There is also a large and varied range of starters with some familiar and some less commonly seen dishes. The service is excellent and the regular staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We now visit here as often as we can. The staff really make the effort to turn a normal night in a curry house into a top evening. The quality of the food is superb, I'm a great fan of the lamb dishes but have tried the standard Chicken baltis etc and they are excellent as well. Can't speak highly enough of this restaurant and staff....oh and not expensive either..weekdays starter, main rice/nan and side between 2 is now £8.95..a bargain.

“By far the best curry house we have ever been to.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I have been dining at the Bangla for many years now and have never found another curry house any where in Birmingham that can match Bangla for its excellent value, tasty food, staff and atmosphere. We have recommended many friends who all have enjoyed the dining experience.
Thank you staff for the friendly service and keep up the good work.
