Nestled between the north London areas of Crouch End and Hornsey, Bengal Indian is a great little curry house serving a good range of classic and contemporary Indian cuisine.
A proper local’s Indian restaurant, Bengal Indian is a small yet perfectly formed little dining room where groups of friends, families and dining couples head to for an affordable, flavourful Indian meal.
The menu is wide and extensive at Bengal Indian, with dishes to keep all kinds of Indian food fans happy. Traditional curry fans will not be disappointed, as all of the dishes one would expect to see on a good Indian restaurant menu are there present and correct. There are a few rather exciting specials to sample too such as the Gram Nagari with cubes of spicy lamb or chicken cooked in a famously hot naga chilli sauce or the Mukter’s Special with chicken or lamb tikka cooked in a clay oven and pan fried with green and red peppers and herbs and served with an egg on top. The Tilapia Johl is a superb fish dish made with Bay of Bengal tilapia fillets cooked in lemon, mustard, onion and tomato with flavours of fennel.
Just down the road from Hornsey train stations, Bengal Indian is often the dining room of choice for hungry commuters heading home or for those heading out for a night out. Traditional in style, expect crisp white linens atop tables with napkins carefully fanned and tall back seats in green. Service is excellent, professional and helpful at all times.
