Lovely Indian restaurant on Boldmere High Street serving a wide range of very tasty dishes at an affordable price. You can take your own alcohol and they will even supply you with a wine cooler !! The service is great and the staff very friendly. It was very busy for a Tuesday evening and it was clear most were returning... More

We took my sister and brother in law for a curry as they live in Kent and consider Birmingham to be the home of a good Balti. Not this time, it was so disappointing. Instead of a golden spicy Balti with a kick we got a dark brown bland dish with no flavour. I always know when my husband has... More

This restaurant in Boldmere High Street has an evening offer of any starter and any main course, and coffee for £10.95 and it's really good value. Good menu choices, excellent service, and really tasty food. Well worth it for a midweek dinner.

We went with children for the so called 'special' £10.95 - after we wished we had gone to Mother India as it was £1 cheaper and it included poppadoms!!! Shaban take note!!!! Poppadoms were charged at a whopping £1 each - for what - a giant crisp - what a rip off! Salad was spread across a round dish with... More

I have visited this restaurant previously and had good experiences but sadly, this was not the case on Saturday night when I visited with 9 friends. We had booked for 7pm and our table was ready and waiting when we arrived...all good so far. However, it was downhill from there as far as the service went. The restaurant was very... More

Was introduced to this restaurant by friends and was not disappointed. The food was excellent and the restaurant very clean and well presented. Able to take your own drinks as they have no liquor license which makes for a cheaper evening.

Visited this restaurant with my uncle wife and young son. Owner was very nice just like all the staff. Food was fantastic, my Jalfrazi was lovely and just the right heat. All the food was good. My only small negative was it felt a little rushed maybe just too efficient.

My wife and I first ate here about 3 weeks ago before we went on our holiday and had the 2 course meal offer on a sunday night. The meals were fantastic and they are more than happy to add a little spice to my dish when requested. The lamb was perfectly tender and there was lots of it too.... More
