We love it here we go often and always enjoy our meal. Staff are friendly the lamb tikka masala is so nice. We've been at very busy times on a Saturday so I would recommend you book as it is popular at weekends.

We went for the Buffett lunch and it was amazing. Wide variety of curries and starters with salad popadoms and Nanns. Very flavorful foods and you could tell it was cooked fresh they kept the trays stocked up well. Lovely atmosphere inside.

Bit of an odd location. But once inside we sat by the kitchen door which gave us the best aroma of the food being prepared. Great quality food and excellent service. Definitely return when I'm back in the area.

I was staying next door at the Premier Inn and wanted something a bit different from the 'samey' Harvester pub. As other have mentioned - the outside of this restaurant does not look that appealing - but I followed the other reviews and was treated to an excellent meal. Very good value compared to what I usually pay for an... More

We visited this evening after returning from NEC and hotel and local Harvester was closed. Glad they were as we wandered into this restaurant and we had fabulous food. Nice wine, delicate and freshly prepared authentic food. The service was great and with a smile. Little girl loved ice-cream. Will definately visit again when next in Brum.

Visited last night with the family. Absolutely gorgeous food. The mix & blend of spices is excellent. We had Set Meal C for 6. Definitely worth a visit if staying in the area (we are from Sheffield) and would have it delivered if they came all this way. Attentive Service, Excellent Food & good prices. Keep up the excellent business

Why is Indian food in Birmingham so much tastier than back home in Glasgow? I had murghi masala and it was fantastic. Good service too. Highly recommended.
