This smart and sophisticated interior is complimented by the 18th and 19th century Indian artefacts, including original paintings, carved stone elephants and 300 year old doors. Downstairs, the Maharaja Suite which also seats 80 is luxurious with opulent mood lighting and decorated with more Indian treasures. To complete the real ambience, behind 300 year old Indian wooden doors is the Tiffin Room which seats 12, complete with a bar, library and your very own dedicated butler!Cuisine in this fine establishment is created by award winning chefs and staff who come from Indian Five-Star Hotel backgrounds. They have a single aim - to be able to deliver the authentic Royal Indian dining experience to its patrons with utmost courtesy and hospitality. The menu will take you on a culinary journey through the North of India with a couple of stops through Kenya and vibrant Mumbai.At this royal eatery, indulgence is paramount.

The menu is interesting and different from the usual offerings. There was an Indochinese section where we picked a very nice chicken starter. I would recommend it to anyone but as a main course --- the portion was quite large. The main courses were also quite large. The flavours were distinctive with different quite different profiles for different dishes. I... More

Well this restaurant i am rating as poor. Not because the food was poor but because the service was terrible. I would not recommend going there for a special occasion. After me and my 8 friends paid nearly £300 to eat here we were told to get up and go very rudely by the man taking the booking. So do... More

We went for a family members birthday and I was a little disappointed with the food. The starters were fine but didn't finish my main course as it did not taste nice at all. Other people in the group enjoyed their meal enough but wouldn't return in a hurry.

Birmingham teems with Indian restaurants. Even China Town has them, makes me smile. So if you want something a bit above the rest this is the place. The layout, the décor and the ambience is comfortable, the tables are not crammed in and the menu is different enough and each dish comes with explanation of the origin and make up... More
