“Amazing, Better than Curry Corner!! ( In our opinion)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had to go to Walsall, and fancied an Indian, After previous "So So " meals in the Balti triangle, Sparkhill area. We thought we would see what else there was, After 80 plus good reveiws, we figured Five Rivers worth a go.
On arrival, very posh looking , Nice New building, Anyway the menu looked V intersting. Poppadoms , with a much better than usual selection of Dips.
Then we had 4 starters between us Pan puri, ,a Papri Martini, a Murgh Tikka, and possibly the best Tandori Lamb ever, was superb . So obviously, we had to share a main, as not that "Piggy" Shared a Lamb Rogan Josh,,,, I did not know they could be so good, Needs a better name!! and excellent Tandoori Nan , Then a shared Desert. . Although this is 55 minutes North of us, Five Rivers, will now be our Indian of choice, thanks Guys, was excellent

“Highly recommended !!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We visited five rivers on Saturday , after numerous recommendations . . Excellent service , a welcoming atmosphere and fine dining and a pleasant change from hearing Indian music blasting in the background !! I would call this an upper class top end Indian restaurant ... Staff were at hand constantly , offering advice on dishes , nothing was to much trouble .... We have recommended all our friends and will be going back !!

“Amazing evening, amazing restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

I visited Fiver Rivers, Walsall last month and I have to say it was an experience to remember! I booked the venue for a party of 5 for my husbands birthday, and to be honest from when we walked in to the restaurant and was greeted by the lovely african guy at the door to the time we left and was waived off by the french guy it was just great. The service was very plesant and the atmosphere was very rememerable! I found the food extreamly good, to be quite honest it suprised me. I'm shocked walsall is host to such a high-end restaurant, you get the feeling the place should be in London. You get the complete VIP experience here, we are returning tomorrow night for our aniversary, and I'm looking forward to it that much I search the venues website when I came across tripadvisor and felt inclined to leave a review! If your thinking of eating out in the midlands then this is the place!

“Worth a visit again !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Having been to Five Rivers before with the "boys" thought I'd give a go with the family.
Not disappointed at all. Service is great especially as we didn't book and turned up. You are asked to order drinks in the lounge/waiting area which very nice and comfortable. Most nice restaurants are doing this format now.
I had the Tangri Chicken to start and the Nihari for main. Very good quality food!

Overall good with family or friends. Only thing I'd moan about is the automatic 10% service charge!!

Not the cheapest but you get your monies worth here even so....
