The food is fantastic and possibly the best in the west midlands. What annoys me is that each time you go the waiters serve you popadoms and chutney and then charge you for it - there's me thinking it's complimentary. It doesn't say anyway on the menu that the popadoms on arrival are chargeable and they dish them out like... More

The place had great reviews on here so we paid a visit. First impressions were good. Popadoms served quickly. Food order was also taken quite quickly, however we were never asked if we wanted drinks at any point. Also the dishes are very hot, be careful!! I had chicken tikka massala which was nice, but the coriander was overwhelming!! This... More

Went to Shababs with nine of my work colleagues this evening (Friday). Food was fantastic, atmosphere just right and amazing value for money. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Very much enjoyed our first authentic balti in the Triangle.

Had a lovely meal here late on a Saturday night. The food was delicious, and the staff were very friendly. All in all, I would highly recommend Shababs. It doesn't have a licence so bring your own booze.

Had a lovely meal here while staying in Birmingham, the food was really tasty and the staff helpful and friendly, my husband and I both had a balti and it was delicious. The decor is modern but with the glass topped tables still felt like a curry house. We both had three courses and rice, popadams and nan breads with... More

This is an excellent and above all authentic balti restauarant. My wife and I really enjoyed our meal here and the service was exemplary. I had read about the place in a Germanwings aircraft brochure whilst travelling and decided to visit Birmingham for a couple of days. We made sure that we came here one evening. Everyone was friendly and... More

We were pleased to have the excuse to stop-by in Birmingham for a quick Balti on the way back down south after a holiday in the Lakes. Lovely fresh veg samosas to start with just the right amount of heat and spice balance. The Paneer Tikka starters were very good too. The Balti's also had real depth of flavour with... More
