In the old days a Balti house used to be like a transport cafe. Glass topped tables, the menu underneath, rubbish wooden chairs and always cheap and cheerful.
These days, when there is so much choice, especially in the Balti capital of the Black Country – Lye – you need something little more to stand out from the old style of restaurant.
Enter ‘Bengal Fusion’.
Not a glass topped table in site, it has posh wooden floors and TV monitors on the wall showing modern ‘Bollywood’ style movies.
This restaurant was recommended to me and we all paid a visit on a busy Saturday night. Unfortunately we changed our booking at the last minute to accomodate a late arrival and the restaurant didn’t change the booking, however they did not give our seats away and with a minimum of fuss we were well looked after.
The food we received at this establishment was simply superb. One of our party had Lamb Chops as a starter. They were huge and looked fantastic. The picture here does not do them justice.
My Chicken Tikka Tawa was something else. Delivered on a flat metal ‘Tawa’ plate, it looked absolutely brilliant and tasted fantastic.
Naan breads and side dishes were also very well prepared with a great deal of effort to make everything look and taste ‘special’.
Pricewise it is competitive without being overly expensive at all.
I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. It is one of a new breed of restaurant to hit Lye and the ‘old guard’ would be best advised to have a re-think, as the bar has been raised significantly by Bengal Fusion!
