Good service & super food, the staff were all quite friendly and tried there very best as there was not a spare table in sight, hence telling customers how good the curry house is, obviously very popular, me and my wife had not been there for some time and thought we would give it a try, we both came back...

Visited Shabar again at the weekend when was up working at a show in the NEC which it's very close to. We go everytime we are in Birmingham, the food and service is always first class. Very reasonably priced too. I look forward to each time I'm in Birmingham just so I can go to Shabar.

Arrived at around 5:30 as it was opening - choice of tables. By the time we got our starters the place was packed, so they must be doing something right. i had the dhansak and was hoping for something a bit spicier than was served up - all the same it was tasty

We tried the the Sunday £9.99 menu and I have to say it was very poor the service and the food.we sat for 20 minutes before we met our waiter and the food came in drips and drapes,a lot of the food was almost cold when we got to eat it. I have to say this is the first time... More

Best curry and Balti we have had in the West Midlands during our stay.They gave good advice on choosing dishes which contained heaps of flavour without being overpoweringly hot.Good Nan's,popperdums and condiments.Cold beer,good service that went that extra mile in calling a taxi and giving a free baileys at the end.Will be back.
