There are a few Indian restaurants in Sale and and we were more than happy with choosing Forts of Bengal. Had two starters along with rice as a main course and it was exactly perfect quantities. Great chance to enjoy varied dishes. Service was excellent.

Nice food and friendly staff but certainly not the best in the area. On the front of the restaurant it states it is 2010/11 Gold Winners but sadly it seems not a lot has been done since then falling behind other competitive restaurants along the same stretch of road. The manager during our visit was obsessed at looking outside to... More

As a resident of the West Midlands and regular eater of Bangladeshi cuisine, I had visited Sale and decided to try the 'Forts' restaurant for a quick Saturday night meal with my Wife. Service was very quick as there were few people in the place at 7:30 in the evening, so the food was clearly not cooked from scratch. The... More

The staff is always welcoming we go here a few times a year and when we have guests we normally bring them here for atleast on of the nights. Happy to see they have some authentic features and music. The food is lovely and you are spoilt for choice. Would 100% be back😀

Lamb vindaloo consisted of gristle and fat in a bland base curry sauce. Hardly any heat. Partners dish (tandoori chicken Marsala)was indistinguishable from mine apart from the addition of chicken and red food colouring. This place used to be great however it's the first time I've visited in years. Not sure what's happened. The only positive was the friendliness of... More

Attended on a friday evening and thankfully it wasn't heaving with people. Nice and relaxed atmosphere and don't feel like you are sat on top of one an other like in other curry houses. Attentive staff and delicious food. Would definitely go again!
