Love Shaban's curries. Really authentic and big portions. Need to book though as always really busy. Their takeaways are just as good as the ones served in the restaurant. Would be my number one choice of the Indian restaurants in Boldmere.

On a return trip to the U.K. We visited Shalan for their £11 curry night - Wednesday. Starter, main and naan or rice and coffee. Choices were broad, restaurant was busy and staff were extremely attentive. We'd been to Shaban in previous visits and it had been the site of out wedding reception in the U.K. In 2012. Would recommend

It all started so well....greeted nicely as is usual here....but then descended into disappointment. Only 2 popadoms between us, felt that was mean. Starters - my king prawn was delicious, I would have been happy with 2 portions and wouldn't have wanted a main course, (had I known what the main course was going to be like I definitely would...

I do however hate the way that there are too many tables crammed into such a small space, the people at the next tables are virtually sitting on yours, no privacy and can be very loud when its busy. I Booked a table and... More

Once the order was taken the food arrived quickly. Some of my colleagues commented that some of the waiter's were a bit abrupt. Food was... More

Ok... It's the lead up to Xmas and the place was heaving with works Xmas parties....It's just great how they served a table of 12 people at the same time and got the orders right. The food was top notch and service was great. I can't fault it and will be returning.

We always feel at home, nothing is too much trouble. My husband loves the Kursi lamb, a speciality dish which must Be ordered 24 hours in advance. Very... More

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.

As a visitor to the area we didn't know anywhere,came in here. We didn't know it was a bring your own bottle and the look we got when my wife asked if there was a wine menu.
