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

Went here on Diwali with the family the restaurant was not overly busy we were seen to promptly. The food was good but not excellent I was expecting a little bit more of a contemporary touch, but it was run of the mill good Indian food – not a bad thing but at this price point I was looking forward...

Dined here on the eve of Diwali together with many other diners and families. Service was impeccable and timely and no hint of delay or slow response. The food was delicious and surprised our fellow diners, who were on their first visit,with its subtlety and flavour. We will be back soon to explore the menu further!
