Having moved away from Birmingham approx 15 years ago I was back in the area for the weekend and had to try Shababs again. I used to be a regular visitor previously and my recent visit did not disappoint. It was excellent. The food was spot on and the staff really helpful and pleasant. Shababs is still one of the...

Have been to a number of Baltimore restaurants on Stoney Lane and Lady pool Rd, but gave Shababs a try on recommendation from a mate, the mixed sharing starters were fantastic and each of our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the main course. As usual with these restaurants superb value for money.

Table was ready, food was very good, starters served in a timely manner, didn't rush us for mains like some places, tables chairs etc good. Facilities were very smart and clean. All in all a very pleasant evening an would recommend for a relatively cheap night out with... More

A great Balti! Enjoyed the meal with family. Having been a Balti lover for a number of years, it was a pleasant surprise to have a great Balti at Shababs. Just some points to improve it further. The wait between the starters and main course was a little too long. Given it was a busy Saturday night, we did make... More

Had the Chicken/Lamb Tikka as starters, tastes great with a lot of flavour. Their Baltis are personalised and cooked fresh. Certainly one of the best South Asian restaurant in Birmingham!

I've been going to the Shabab for many years and agree with all those others who say the food is great. But there is a reason why I've given it 4 and not 5 stars and that is because guys, you've really got to speed up the service, especially for the starters! I realise the place can get very busy,...

Went Saturday evening in group of three. It was generally ok but the sauce with the poppadoms disappointing and the baltis we had tasty but not particularly distinctive from ones we have had in other parts of the city. The service was poor with no one asking if we wanted anything else after the main course, no itemised bill provided... More

Called in last Sunday for a balti and first impressions were good, place was clean, busy with a good atmosphere, we had booked so thankfully didn't have to wait. Waiters were great, very helpful and polite. Popadoms and dips were served quickly and once ordered the main and table naan came shortly after, all freshly cooked and it tasted superb,... More

some of the best Indian food I have tasted in a long time. My wife had the Chicken Tikka Masala and it was nothing like the red gloop that you get in so many Indian Restaurants, Her, my son and his fiancé all agreed that it was the best one they have ever tasted. My Balti Lamb, potato & Spinach... More
