Compared to the branch on broad Street this was a let down. We had to ask for drinks eventually as the staff had no intention our taking our order. The wait continued through to ordering the meal then another long wait for the food. Not the usual attentive service we've come to expect from Indian restaurants. It felt like a cafe.

The food turned up looking far from exciting and considering the cost wasn't a patch on somewhere like Priya in Moseley. The decor was odd and the whole place lacked any atmosphere. We left feeling totally underwhelmed

For someone that absolutely love a great Indian, I'm an excellent critic.
Visited this restaurant with a group of 15, pre-booked a week before, as the last time only left a few days and they were fully booked, weren't going to make that mistake again!

The food was brilliant, I would certainly compliment the chef.
There's not many place were you can get real exguisite curry from anymore.

It's certainly in my top 5.
The service was quick and prompt, Seated straight away, menus were given , order for drinks were taken. Drinks arrived within 10-15 minutes, not bad considering there was 15 of us.

Food portion are a good size, fulfilling.
I will certainly be going back, have recommended it to my Work colleagues, for xmas meal.
Think I'll need to book well in advance to get a change for a table!

Had a wonderful night at this restaurant with my friends. The food was really tasty. I was very impressed and my friends loved it too. Best curry in solihull and birmingham in our opinion. The service was really good too. Got served quickly and food arrived within minutes. The only downside to our evening was a rowdy group of diners who seemed hell bent on ruining the evening for everyone else. They complained about the food despite eating it all and then refused to pay the bill. Caused a scene which everyone could see. We had nothing to complain about though, apart from them. Food and service is brilliant. I would recommend this place. Good value for money too.

food was by far the best I've had in an Indian restaurant, service was outstanding, everything was on time bearing in mind it was a Saturday night very busy, staff was really nice and caring. food was outstanding, the starter king prawn aur puri was just amazing along with the main course Lamb Rogan josh curry was the best. its also reasonable pricing. Highly Recommended

Dull monday night finished work in the evening. About 8 of us decided to visit shimla pinks, some clearly eager to take advantage of the 8.95 deal!

Must say we enjoyed our time and food didn't take overly long.
Service was good staff were nice and friendly as you'd expect.

Im not seriously into spice so i had ordered a butter chicken, keema nan, king prawn puri and drinks. It went down like a treat. I felt like ordering another one but next time I would try something else from their vast menu. The waiter was clued up too, knew the dishes inside out. Thank you
