We visit often and the food is excellent, good atmosphere and friendly staff. Gets busy but will always try to fit you in. The takeaway food is also as good as the restaurant food.

My husband and I love Indian food and living in Birmingham enjoy the best the city has to offer - so maybe our expectations were too high. The ambiance was fine , the onion bhaji starter was good , however we both had very different main courses and the sauce was the same on both dishes. The meat seemed not... More

We had an excellent meal on a busy Saturday night. We booked in advance and were taken to our table very quickly after ordering. The food was excellent. Many thanks to the staff for assisting with choices for my nut allergy - I've never been in an Indian where they have been as thorough with the menu's, ingredients, etc -... More

Our meal was wonderful and the service second to none. I haven't been there for years but will be back very soon. Definitely the best Indian meal I've had in a long long time

Six of us eating on a Saturday night were accommodated with only 1 hour's booking notice. The staff were thoughtful enough to explain they were busy but if we were happy to be patient with service they would fit us in. Glad they did, the food was excellent and they stocked authentic Indian beer to accompany the meal. Portions and... More

Ordered a takeaway from this restaurant , chicken garlic with chilli and a cheese naan and no rice and the price came to £9.25, the food was nothing special but ok . But I'll not be rushing back for a takeaway at that price especially when I didn't even receive a free complimentary poppadom .

Above a row of shops on Scotland Road, so disabled access may be awkward. Met at door and sat in bar area where order was taken by a very cheerful friendly waiter. No starters we'd had a sharing platter in Walkabout in town (review to follow). I had Shahi Shatkora (limes), very tasty, lady wife the Garlic tandoori chicken, again... More
