Have recently reviewed this fantastic restaurant after a very positive first experience. I guess the real test of a restaurant is the follow up visits. I'm delighted to say that the second visit was equally as good as the first. Friendly atmosphere. Welcoming waiters and great food. This demonstrates consistency and again we left full and happy. We are very... More

I visit Birmingham frequently and you are not lost for choice. I was staying in the Holiday Inn M6/A34 so I tried this place for a change because of decent reviews and was not with any of my business partners who state preferences. I was very hungry having missed my meals the previous day.I arrived when they first opened on... More

Dropped by early on a Saturday evening and got a table no problem.Waiting staff were lovely, friendly and attentive. The food however was distinctly average. Our mains were served to the table seconds after we had finished our poppadums, implying that perhaps dishes are not freshly prepared to order. Nothing wrong with the food, just not the best or worst... More

Friendly staff, we visited rather then eat in a nearby hotel. The food was OK and prices good, but It does drive me a little nuts when you order totally different dishes and the sauce both taste the same...but then again could have been just me!

Finest King Prawn every-time, best waiter service whoever you are, comfortable and nothing is too much trouble - look after your staff and your staff will look after your customers - a refreshing change - will mention it here as Basmati now (just) tips The Dilshad Sutton Coldfield as my favourite Indian - well done and thank you!

Well impressed with this restaurant. Our first visit, we were a party of 8, and were pleasantly welcomed and seated. Orders quickly taken. Food was excellent. The best Thali I have had . Well prepared, presented, and very tasty. Would always return.

So often nowadays you go to a restaurant or a pub and the service is at best average with waiters (m/f) uninterested and without knowledge of the menu. There always seems to be something missing off the menu and invariably, one element of the meals received is not right - lukewarm, under/overdone etc etc. BUT never at this restaurant. We... More
