We were in Birmingham for the weekend and our hotel owner recommended Shabar. As we arrived, they had a "power-out" and this affected our choice of mealn as they could not cook some items. However, food was good, service excellent. Good value for money.

We came here with my parents for their anniversary and I can quite honestly say it's one of the best Indians I have ever eaten. The food was flavoursome and tasty, the drinks were following and the service excellent. Even the boyfriend said it was his favourite ever Indian meal and trust me.... He doesn't say that lightly! The value... More

Great place to eat always hot fresh food and excellent customer service and a free cheeky shot at the end of the night. Our family go every xmas eve and the ladies always get a free bottle of wine. Food can take a little while but you don't mind when it'd worth it. 😆

Came here based on good reviews and wasn't disappointed. It was very busy but we only had to wait ten minutes for a table. The food was exquisite. We eat a curry every week and this was by far the best I've ever tasted anywhere! Unfortunately they don't deliver to Lincolnshire...!!! The staff were attentive and made excellent food choice...

We last went to the Shabar in May, but it was a bit rushed because we were going to a concert. This time, it was a far more leisurely, relaxed experience. The waiter was very helpful in describing some of the less familiar dishes. Poppadoms and drinks arrived promptly, with a good selection of dips. For starters we both had... More

Found this gem by chance as it's close to a hotel I stay at regularly. Really good food and fantastic value. Service is also great. Will definitely visit again.

Had a lovely meal at Shabar. It is literally 5 mins in the car from where we are staying near the Airport - The Holiday Inn. Food was superb and would highly recommend !!

Greated on entry and made to feel welcome. The service is always thorough and reliable. The food, without question is faultless I really couldn't recommend a better place to eat, they display an award for best chef 2013 on the main desk and I'm really not surprised. Surely this restaurant must be on the shortlist for the best Indian restaurant... More

The best thing about my experience in Shabar was the wine! The food was awful. People left while I was there it was so bad. Another table sent their drinks back, yes drinks, wasn't there when their food to arrived to see how that went down!!! Would not recommend, will not return.
