Without doubt, my most favoured curry house in Birmingham! I stumbled across this little gem whilst out with friends. The place was absolutely packed, so we wanted to know what we were missing out on. We were not disappointed. I have since been countless times with friends and my partner. Every single time I walk away a happy man! I... More

We have used Shaban's for a few years and always been very pleased with the food, value and service. BUT: We went for their lunch time deal yesterday and were very disappointed. The portions were very, very small and certainly not worth £5.95 when you look at other lunchtime deals that are available now. This is not the first time... More

Visit regular and never let down. Always busy but food is always good and comes in a reasonable time. Love the atmosphere here and staff are friendly.

Don't order the prawn cocktail- gave me food poisoning. Apart from that the curries taste great. Have been before and never had a problem.

Tightly packed sardines. Poor food and the service is aimed at getting you out quick to get a new person in your seat. I eat at many curry houses but won't be returning here.

Fantastic food, stands out in a crowded area for curries. I've tried most of the restaurants and this is the friendliest with the most flavoursome meals. Not the cheapest but worth the money.

This is the second time we have been to Shaban and have been very impressed with the service and food. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is served quickly and hot. They also do low fat curries if you are health conscious. Highly recommend this restaurant. I would advise booking in advance as they are very popular... More

This was the first time I tried the place. I ordered a dish that lets you try two types of curry. 'Try' is the word, alright: You pay top dollar for little more than a spoonful of each. The massala was fine; Im pretty sure the lamb came out of a tin. The menu offers a reduced fat option for... More

Promt service and meal waiting time was good. Sheesh kebab was totally bland, chicken tikka madras was extremely average and nan bread was too doughy. Pelaw rice was more like sticky rice. I read previous reviews harping on about how good food was and I was expecting something great. As my job requires me to travel the country and I... More
