I love a Friday lunch out of the office and today, the lovely Karis and I headed off to the Bengal Tiger Restaurant in St Pauls. Located on Carter Lane, the Bengal Tiger is set over two floors and is pitched as having the ground floor perfect for private functions which of course, is why I was interested.
Karis and I made the walk from the office in this amazing sunshine we are having and on arriving were made quite the fuss of. We had spent the morning looking at the menu as Karis is training for Tough Mudder (nutter) and I am training myself to fit into my wedding dress so we were trying to go for the healthier stuff. Menu (BTW) looked amazing however we soon deviated from the healthy options.
To start with I went for the Salmon Tikka (£6.95) which hand on heart was amazing. The sizes were a good portion and the salmon was just melt in your mouth – I would definitely have this again and would love to figure out how to make it! For my main I had the Sea Bass which was absolutely huge and I couldn’t finish it. It was cooked in tomatoes, garlic, curry leaves and mustard sauce and just a lovely piece of boneless sea bass priced at only £14.95. For mains Karis went for the King Prawn Bryani (£12.95) and also couldn’t finish it and as I don’t eat prawns, assured me it was super tasty.
Dessert wise, I couldn’t do it however Karis went for the lemon sorbet which I tried and was really good. I would also get that next time I go back and I will go back.
The Bengal Tiger has been around for 14 years and was filled with the usual city crowd. I would send clients there for a business lunch. It was fairly quiet, the food was amazing and I cannot praise the staff highly enough.
