Bengal Tiger restaurant in the City of London is just a few minutes' walk from Blackfriars tube station and an equally short stroll from St Pauls Cathedral. This Indian restaurant offers northern
Indian cuisine in a sleek, spotlit setting. A cool architectural sculpture separates the bar from the dining room and the place is decorated throughout with tiger-themed art. Bengal Tiger
differentiates itself from the curry houses that dot the City by its selection of chef's specials. Food is freshly cooked to order and is prepared with fine ingredients that have been sourced from
all over the world. If you're looking for authentic Indian cuisine in a smart, relaxed City setting, then look no further than the Bengal Tiger. The sikandari raan is a magnificent version of
slow-cooked spiced lamb shank. Chicken jaipuri in a medium tamarind sauce, and a tandoori-cooked duck akberi masala are equally memorable to the taste.
I probably visited more curry houses than any other type of restaurants and yet I never reviewed any. Why? Would it be because, frankly I can't be bothered to bring you, reviews which look like an accountant inventory, places where the food is fine but there is nothing to write about. Of course, I review my own trial and tribulations from my own kitchen but when eat out I expect more. Don't get me wrong, in Greenwich we have a few good curry houses (a few bad one too).However, I have yet to taste "a-nudge-above-the-rest-dish" in an Indian local. A dish which will make me go, "Hmmm, I wonder what's in there" a dish where "The flavours are intriguing and delicious enough so that I can take them back home to my kitchen."...
