“Friendly staff, authentic Bangladeshi cuisine”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

We've been going to the Dilshad for over 20 years and are never dissapointed. There's a lot more competition now as several new Indian restuarants have been opened in Sutton but the Dilshads still there. We try the others and some are pretty good, but keep returning to the Dilshad.
They serve all the traditional dishes and will spice them up or down to taste. But I always have them as they come as they don't need to change for me.
It's not a flashy restaurant and doesn't change the menu for fads or fashions. That doesn't mean the loos couldn't do with a bit of a decorate, but they're always clean.
Balti's are great, p.d.'s and pickles are fab. All good, service excellent, portions fantastic. We love it.

“Taste of the 70s”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

I remember going to the Dilshad back in the 70s when it was one of only two Indian restaurants in Sutton Coldfield. It's still going and it hasn't changed much. We went on a Saturday evening at about 8.30pm and there was hardly anyone in. This is not too surprising as the place looks closed, but try the door and inside it's warm and welcoming. The well-worn menu is straight out of the 70s but the food is wholesome and served hot. The chicken dishes are first class and good value. Avoid the red wine as they clearly take a few days to get through a bottle!

“Consistently good food & value for money”
Reviewed June 8, 2011

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years and although we no longer live in the area go and visit at every opportunity. My wife has the same dish every time we visit. The staff are always welcoming. The service is quick and professional. The food is always consistently of good quality. I have never had to complain in over 30 years.
It is a value for money basic Indian restaurant. Don't expect 5* luxury or Michelin star food.
For £20/£30 for two people you can have drinks, starters and main course with side orders.
Always good food, Always good service. what else can I say~~~great!
