I had a kind of chicken kabok with basmati rice (don't remember the name of the dish). I ate in but I could see people coming in for take out. I'd go again if I am in Birmingham again.

The staff is always friendly and welcoming. Their entire menu is very good, my husband is obsessed with their chicken Sajji sandwich, I love the Baba Gannooj and Mojadra Wrap. Great place for vegetarians!
