The Bengal restaurant, based in the Bayswater area of London, is now in its 16th year of trading and continues to go from strength to strength, thanks to its emphasis on traditional Asian flavours with an imaginative twist. General manager Kaftan Miah has been in charge since the restaurant's inception and brings an authenticity to the establishment, having successfully managed eateries in his homeland of Bangladesh. This is backed up and sustained by innovative head chef Abdul Malik, who has brought experience and passion to the menu, which is notable for its extensive range and quality. Examples of the dishes on the menu include traditional Bangladeshi staples such as Bengal special chicken and lamb Naga Bhuna, as well as meals inspired from other areas of the Indian subcontinent, like Tandoori and Biryani.
