For starters my husband had pakora which he enjoyed, I had the salmon which had a lovely delicate flavour. For main course we both had lamb passanda which was very nice. Good service throughout but felt it a bit expensive for what we had.

4 of us dined here in the main Restaurant. The Table is of a decent size....big enough to take all of the multiple dishes served up...a bonus. The food is freshly cooked to order and each dish was superb. Starters of Veg Pakora, Chicken 65...More

Went to Balbir’s Brasserie on a Thursday evening using an itison voucher. Four curry dishes, rice, a nan and one drink each (for two people) for £19. The ambience is really good, service friendly and efficient and the food is so good. Will definitely return.

Modern Indian Restaurant,
In June 2016, the restaurant closed for refurbishment. This was part of a year-long project to update from being just a restaurant, to being a more complete dining experience. It was very important to us that we didn’t lose ‘what made us special’ but at the same time allow us to celebrate the diversity of Indian food.

Updates include
A new Bar/ Brassiere with open kitchen serving Small Plates, Indian Grill & Street Food
A new lounge area for guests after dinner
Private dining for 8 to 10 guests
Deli and spice market (due to open mid summer 2018)

This place is temporarily closed due to renovation. It will reopen in late summer 2017
