Was in the Birmingham area with work and traffic through Brum was at its best.Had to pass Sanskrit and was overjoyed to see the lights on so spoke to my good lady and we decided on a take away. I must have got there as the restaurant was opening but still the owner and his wife were both very welcoming.... More

As a special birthday treat, my husband took us to Sanskirt for dinner and what a wonderful meal it was. The food was full of authentic indian flavours......compliments to the chef who knows his spices and how to... More

For me, the best Indian restaurant in Birmingham outside of the city centre. They set the benchmark when it comes to service, food, atmosphere etc all boxes are ticked. Very rarly it is hit and miss and if it ever is, you'll always give them another chance as they will excel on your next visit. I can't speak anymore highly... More

Our table was booked for 8.00 p.m and we didn't get our main food until 9.30 and then one of our group had no food and had to wait a further 10 minutes.The lamb Rogan Josh was full of gristle and not very palatable. I would not mind if they had been busy but there were only two other tables... More

Visited Sanskrit after reading reviews on tripadvisor. To sum it in a nutshell absolutely fantastic in par with restaurants in the city centre. Service and food 10/10.

I've visited Sanskrit on numerous occasions over the last 18 months or so having been introduced to it by my son. I've been eating Indian/Bangladeshi food for about 35 years now. Outside of the Indian subcontinent this is, for me, the best restaurant food of that genre which I have had. The menus is quite small in appearance but in... More

Discovered this place by accident (actually Trip Advisor)! It was well recommended and looked a little out of the ordinary (you can't get methi chicken everywhere) It was excellent and I would really recommend it. The only down side was it was somewhat noisy - there was a birthday group and a noisy group and the sound does reverberate somewhat
