Description: Birmingham's Shimla Pinks. Located on bustling Broad Street and recently refurbished, this fun, funky flagship eatery is decked with modern furniture and art. Mixed with all this modernity are the traditional Indian values of hospitality and service. Black-clad staff are friendly, hip and helpful. A well written menu lists an enticing mix of traditional (thalis, jalfrezi, passanda), less well known (harrey masaley ka gosht) and earthy North Indian tandoori dishes - all served with fragrant basmati rice, salad, mint yoghurt sauce. Delicious. Nice vegetarian choices. Our new opening hours are: Mon - Wed: 5pm - 11.30Pm. Thurs - Sat: 5pm - 12.30Am. Sun: 12pm - 10.30Pm

A group of us decended on Shimla Pinks during a recent night out on Broad Street. Upon arrival, we were shown and seated to our table by some very courteous staff. As we were all hungry, we ordered starters straight away with a few round of drinks. Starters (samosas and bhajis) were very good, did not taste like taste like the defrosted variety at most curry houses. Equally timed were the main courses and wine, all well presented and cooked to perfection.

Mr Singh (the owner, who incidently has a pink turbin) pulled out all the stops to make this an ejoyable meal and so did all staff! Great food, great service and a great host. On the downside, the portions are 'economical' in size but as the saying goes, its quality not quantity! Other plus point was that the local riff raff are outpriced, therefore keeping the burberry clad chavs out.

overpriced, you could walk down to Akbaars on Hagley road and get better service for less for a better balti. If you want to overspend and eat less this is the perfect place for you

This was my second visit to Shimla Pinks – I was in Birmingham for a trade show and figured we'd stick to what we knew because last year's meal was good. I wish we'd tried somewhere new to be honest.

Although the service was good and the waiter made some good recommendations for us, the curries that we ordered we all far hotter than they should have been - I'm no stranger to hot food but I struggled! We all felt the same ill effects the next day too unfortunately (for us and the other patrons of the show!).

Although we were the only customers in there we had a great meal, the decor is interesting, the service was good and the washrooms are stylish. The price was fair too.
