This is a regular place for me to meet up with friends. Excellent food, full of flavour and the staff always listen when I ask for my meal to be 'mild' and not too hot. You always get a warm welcome from the lovely staff, who are attentive when you need them to be, but never rush you. I can... More

The service was friendly and the food arrived soon after ordering. The portions were large. We had noticed this when looking at other tables, so fortunately we didn't over order.... More

This is our first choice for a balti. Yes it's great value for money and excellent food! We also love the welcome and the service we get EVERY time we go. We'll be back again very soon. I've never been disappointed and the team are always happy to help you choose a meal that suits you. Enjoy 😊

Visited the Shabar whilst staying nearby on business at the NEC. Excellent choice on the menu. I opted for a Lamb Tikka Dupiaza balti which was served in a traditional balti dish the size of a wok. The food was excellent and was very reasonably priced. Staff and service was first class and will definitely pay another visit next time... More

We needed a restaurant near the LG Arena and chose this based on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews – we were not disappointed. The friendly staff were very professional and the service was rapid. The food was delicious with generous portions and a large choice of tasty and hot curries. We especially enjoyed the poppadums and various pickles, the table... More

Excellent friendly Indian restaurant which we have been going to for 20 years. It never fails to please us. Brilliant naan bread but the currys are always a notch above any other Indian restaurant

Myself, my husband and our 2 daughters have been coming to Shabar for many years and we have never had a bad meal. The owner and all his staff are extremely friendly and always make us feel very welcome. The food is always of the highest quality, and the portions are very generous. If you have never visited here before,... More
