Enjoying Trip Advisor reviews

Monday, January 30, 2017

January is often a strange month in the restaurant business but we have been very fortunate in receiving some excellent comments on Trip Advisor this month. 

We are very lucky to have such a wonderful army of regular diners and we especially enjoy meeting new customers who drop by to sample our innovative Bangladeshi cuisine. We had a charming couple in last week who wrote 'Went for dinner on Monday night, enjoyed it so we went back on Wednesday. Will return again - all good, service great.' Written by a level 6 contributor, all the way from Maidenhead, we were delighted.

It is really good for all of us, at the Bengal Palace, to read the feedback as we continuously strive to offer an exceptional dining experience, superb food and a first class service. Three weeks ago, a review entitled 'Brilliant flavours and inspiring menu, this is a real curry house' warmed our hearts and inspires our chefs to conjure up the full flavours from our traditional menus and serve them with pride.

We offer two menus at the Bengal Palace, one is a classic Indian menu with kormas, masalas, balti and pathia dishes and the other is much more adventurous. Our Xacuti dishes enjoy roasted star aniseed, javitri and fenugreek seeds with special Goan red chillies, coconut and cinnamon; favourite starters such as the Malai Murgh Tikka, is specially selected char-grilled chicken and cottage cheese marinated in yoghurt and garlic, ginger paste and green cardamon javitri powder; for fish lovers, we offer a delicious Seafood Moilee which is a mild Keralan curry using fresh hand-picked white crab meat, king prawns, mussels, monkfish, squid and coconut milk or a Salmon Moilee.

If we have whetted your appetite do come and try some of our exclusive Adventure in Taste dishes and, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Cuisine inspired by the land of rivers

Saturday, April 16, 2016

Many of the dishes available on the special Adventure in Taste menu have been inspired by the produce and traditional cooking methods of Bangladesh, a country of around 700 rivers and great beauty. There is a fascinating history and every river has a story. Amongst the lush countryside and paddy fields the people and their traditions are as vibrant and colourful as their wildlife and countryside.

This land of water, rivers, sea and rain, is exceptionally green and very beautiful. It does however experience the problems of climate change with rising river levels from the melting glaciers of the Himalayas, monsoons and frequent floods. The agriculture is important and with the floods the mountains wash down the rich silt to replenish deposits for another round of crops.

Over the past few years the United Nations have been working with the government to manage natural resources with better water management and crops resistant to climate change. This had lead to increased fish stock, floating gardens, more abundant crops for local markets improving livelihoods and incomes so that children can go to school.

If we have tempted you with our tales of Bangladesh natural resources, please ask for the Adventure in Taste menu when you next visit.
