Tried the specials rather than the Balti well worth the extra money ,but if you do try the specials be prepared to wait its well worth it. Forgot my coat and before i got in the car the manager ran across the restaurant car park ,the main road and the pub car park very nice of him.

We regularly travel the 40 minute trip to eat at the Shabar Not only is the food first class but the service never changes. The staff are always friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble Their Chicken Chat starter is a meal on it's own. the poppadum and pickle selection is second to none and the table nan is...

We were staying at the Crowne Plaza close to Birmingham airport and decided a Birmingham Balti was a must. I based our restaurant choice decision on trip advisor reviews. After reading the rude comments of the manager aimed at negative reviews at a rival establisment I chose Shabar as a 2nd choice. Weds evening was very busy when we arrived... More

On the second occasion the service was the same and unfortunately my King Prawn Madras was 30% Chicken! Which left me wondering who else had ordered a mixed dish of... More

Love Indian food and overall did not disappoint. Had not been here for years. Positives: Very reasonable priced and popular, which is always a good sign and noticed the 5 star hygiene rating. Busy when we arrived and had a table for 10. Service really good (but see below). Food excellent, I had the lamb special and have to say... More
