Dined as a couple and although was empty when we went in on a Sunday evening got a little busier. The food was Ok, we had mixed platter of meat and veg which does deserve a try. Food overall was Ok, we did enjoy and it was nice night out. Staff were friendly and food was served quickly Ambience may... More

Only been here once but the service was excellent and food was delicious, I disagree with all the negative feedback, well worth the money and can't wait to go again.

This restaurant has to be the best bengali restaurant in Birmingham! The food and service second to none, portions are very good and drinks reasonably priced. Have no hesitation to visit whether it be for pleasure or business - you won't be disappointed.

Went here with a group of 6 colleagues from work. The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed all of their meals. Overall, we all agreed it was excellent, a few thought it was the best Indian meal they have ever had. We all had different starters and mains and a variety of sides, rices and Naans. I will definitely eat... More

I'm a lone business traveller who stays at the nearby Holiday Inn on a frequent basis. The food and service at this restaurant are second to none.

Firstly, watch the ramp outside, I almost slipped and put my back out. Why anyone would put shiny tiles on a ramp is beyond me. I would agree with some other comments that the manager is very sour faced and put me on edge all evening. Not sure what's wrong with him but he shouldn't bring it work as he... More

Dine with us if you will only provide constructive criticism rather than attempting to sabotage our business and loyal customers through your unrealistic and negative influence. Firstly,we do not agree with the conclusion you have made on our service, food and atmosphere as we have never experienced such a baseless review based on someone's narrow thoughts.

Good location on the Birmingham Road with car parking space right in front. Service was friendly. Food was nice with good variety, dishing up generous portions. Only got a 3/5 from us because although the curries were tasty, they were not distinct. As in if you were blindfolded, you wouldn't be able to distinguish between each dish.

Whilst away on business I stayed at Premier Inn at Great Barr and rather than dine at the packed Harvester - where it took them 15 minutes to get me drink - I decided to get onto Tripadvisor and same across this little gem. Firstly I think it is worth noting that this restaurant is a prime example of why... More
