My favourite curry house for when I visit Birmingham. The hospitality is great and the food is on point.

Went for our wedding anniversary celebration. Had the table buffet. So much choice and food. Both full and took some home. Staff were brilliant and felt safe with this Covid stuff. Thank you

We had a birthday party here. The food took a very long time to arrive but when it did was all cooked fresh & tasted great. The prices are more then we would normally pay the bill was £220 not sure how it got there...as we don't drink alcohol. Also the extras like ice cream & tea they offered us was probably included as the bill was not readable when it arrived on scribbled up paper. We didn't question it & paid & left. Also don't park on Aldi car park whilst visiting this restaurant was given a £70 parking fine for parking there so dinner really was expensive!!More

Deeply regret I've only recently discovered this terrific restaurant, ironically as a result of the otherwise self-destructive and pointless Lockdown.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. I wasn’t sure what I wanted so waiter asked questions and was able to pick a dish for me. Food was delightful and series of treats followed too. We got there a bit earlier in the evening but was...getting much busier by the time we left, can see whyMore

Fantastico as always, good service, two of us had the servers recommendations which both if us found were perfect choices. I always recommend jilabi to all friends and family. Its the other side of Birmingham for us but it well worth the travel.

We returned hear tonight, after not going for a few years, due too slipping standards. The food was ok ish but it is nowhere near the quality of before. Staff nice enough. But again not nearly as good as before when nothing was to much...trouble. We did had a nice time and the food was ok, but there is definitely much better curry houses about. PLEASE NOTE......If you have any concerns about COVID-19 this IS NOT the place to visit. Zero social distancing, tables exactly as before, sitting 6 inches from other tables. No waiters wearing masks ect nothing zero zilch... Sadly this will definitely be the last time we visit as we really enjoyed this place for many years.More

I am a regular user of the Jilabi restaurant normally so I was extremely disappointed to receive horrendous service after ordering on Uber eats. The order never arrived and after chasing for more than an hour I had to give up as their phone was...constantly engaged - I was charged in full for an order I never received. Uber finally after several attempts refunded me 5 days later. I emailed Jilabi directly my complaint no response from them, no apology or customer service whatsoever. Very disappointing experience/ordeal.More

We booked on line the day before, and managed to get a booking for 17.30. We were in 2 minds to go as we'd seen reviews saying no social distancing. However, the table we were given was only situated by one other, with our backs...to the other guests. The place is very busy, plenty of staff making sure everything is ok, it was. The food was delicious, as always and we didn't have to wait to long for it to be served. Would recommend.More

The place was so busy it made the whole party I was with very uncomfortable! Ate quick and gone. Far better places nearby with better food and atmosphere.

Unfortunately the Jilabi has had their alcohol licence re-instated. I do enjoy visiting this restaurant. The food, friendly staff, and the ambience ticks all the boxes for me. Though I have to admit that we took full... More
