Bengal Lancer review image

Bengal Lancer

The Bengal Lancer has been Kentish Town's best Indian restaurant for over two decades. Most orders leave the front door in plastic bags, but the picture-lined space is a good spot for quiet dinners. Focus on the unique dishes, including chicken liver hazri (great sweet and sour sauce) and sabzi begun, an aubergine and chickpea pie. The BL is a long-lived survivor in an area that’s seen a lot of restaurants bite the dust, and there's good reason for that.
