We stayed nearby for a Birthday night away and decided to go here for dinner as we had seen great reviews! We had not booked and could see they were really busy but they managed to seat us. The service was very friendly, the food was tasty and the bill was great value for money. Would highly recommend.

Stayed at the Travelodge up the road and this was definitely worth the 20 minute walk. Just walk in and smell, and you know you are in for a treat. The staff were friendly and the waiter took the time to explain any dishes you were unsure about and they were happy to bespoke if required. The quality of the... More

Based on previous reviews I booked here for dinner with a colleague. The menu is extensive and had some dishes we had never had before. The waiter took time to explain about the heat in each dish and offered to have the chef adjust to our taste. The food was very good and I would recommend to anyone staying at... More

Been a customer at the shabar for 20+ years, still rate it as the best Indian cuisine in Birmingham by a long shot! May have moved out the area but still like to visit when possible and always receive the same warm welcome by all staff and the same great service. Will always recommend here without a doubt!

I deducted one star because the menu was a bit tatty! But the food is terrific, and staff friendly and efficient. The decor isn't great, a bit canteen like. But these are minor quibbles. Would definitely return if in the area again.

Return each year when i am working at the NEC and the staff always welcome us back. Not much more to say but great food, good prices, friendly service. My favourite place in the area and will be back especially for more of the Tandori Lamb Chops.
