I have had enough curry in my 39 years to sink a ship, consumed across this country and foreign shores! I can without hesitation support that the curry here is the best I have ever tasted. A view shared by my many friends when I take them here too....stunning, just stunning. A real gem. I travel 68 round trip miles... More

We had an excellent balti meal. Very busy so worth booking. The food was of good quality and the family sized naan bread was a delight. They do not sell alcohol but have no problem with you brining your own Situated in a very intersting part of the City

Great restaurant and great value for money.No licence so you have to bring your own cans bottles.Food spot on with great choice of curry etc.The Staff are all friendly and we have visited twice will be going back soon.Park free around the corner but drive carefully as the road is mad and nobody else does.

Second visit here and just as good as the first. If you want alcohol don't forget to bring your own! Food was great and very reasonably priced.

Booked a table to celebrate my daughters birthday, thought i would be a good idea to visit the Balti area of Birmingham. We could have not done better, great service and the food was fantastic, i mean fantastic. I suggest if anyone is in the area to give it a try
