Very good

Good service and good food, was recommended by colleague who also had stayed in nearby Holiday Inn ( a short walk away) . It is right next to premier inn so would make a change from the Harvester pub.

great restaurant with very attentive staff. Car parking is simple and easy. Menu is excellent and a great spread of dishes from the region. The waiters were great at explaining what the more unusual dishes were. Food was very good and reasonable prices. This was our 4th visit to this restaurant, and we will definitely return.

Got takeaway from here (10% discount on collection!!!) and the food and service was great. Spent about £15 and got enough food for two (free poppodums and tasty yogurty dip added in). Friendly staff when I collected and was ready in about 30 mins.

Fourth visit over a three year period and again excellent Indian food with good service. The food is clearly freshly cooked, is not lacking in spices and is very aromatic. The restaurant is clean with clean toilets and tablecloths and all together a nice atmosphere. I will eat here again on my next visit to Birmingham.
