We have been visiting this restaurant for some time. Its success is due mainly to good management. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service. In our opinion Shaban is the best Indian restaurant for miles around. There is always a welcome here! Highly recommended.

Been a while since returning to this restaurant since I was overcharged on Mother's Day 2015. Advisable to book before going as always busy. Take your own drinks as not licensed. Food was good, always tasty but portions seem smaller. Felt the staff a bit interrupting this visit whilst we were eating, felt like they hovered round our table too... More

I wish we had read the reviews before going here. We arrived at 7pm .. the time we had booked our table for and had to wait for our table to come free, fine.

We were left waiting an hour and a half for our food, we didnt have a starter and were left with a plate of popodoms while we were waiting. You are packed in like sardines and it gets overcrowded and very noisy. You cant hear what the waiters or your companion are saying.

Overall the food was ok but the service was poor and not very friendly. We were also overcharged. There was no apology for this, neither was there an apology for the dirty bottle of water I received. I would not recommend this restaurant.

I can't fault this restaurant, when u look past the living room decor (sorry!) the staff, menu and chefs are outstanding! I've never had a bad meal here and the front of house always make you feel welcome no matter how busy they get! Definitely the best balti in Sutton Coldfield. Well done!
