Great food, never let down by shaban, nice servers, every curry i have had is on point. It can get very busy at times though and feel bit cramped, but i love it all the same. Best curry house in sutton/erdington.

I live in Bromsgrove some 40mins away but we definitely be back next time we are over that way. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff even... More

This was my third visit to this lovely traditional Indian restaurant in boldmere. The food is outstanding, always cooked fresh and very tasty. It's outstanding value also. Depending on who you get service can be a little inconsistent but this does little to disappoint - outstanding quality and outstanding value will most certainly return again. (Bring your own drinks) don't... More

The good thing about Shaban is that the food is always good with generous portions. Crowded inside with the tables too close for my taste but choose carefully which night to go and it's a bit quieter although it's always fairly busy,
