The food is great, portions are quite generous, the service can be a bit slow, but they make up for it by being incredibly nice and gratious. Will probably go there every time I'm in Birmingham.

We ordered take out food from here for 15 people. A great big menu to suit all. Every single dish was cooked to perfection and everyone really enjoyed the food. So glad we found this place.

My balti arrived a little under-flavoured for my taste and I asked for some additional toppings or spices; without asking, they replaced with another fresh dish without complaint, which was exceptional service and the food was great (in fairness,...

Local restaurant is still producing fantastic food since the day it opened. I have been eating here most of my life over the past 20 plus years and the standard of food does not drop in my experiences. Accompanied with good quality food is excellent service and not shy with portions. Excellent job and service to all the staff.

My husband and I have been dining at Shabar Balti Restuarant for years. Apart from the amazing food, the customer service is second to none. Our three year old son appreciates the food as well. He chose to dine at this restuarant for his 3rd birthday xx

Second time at this place and the first experience was great but this time it was very poor. Apart from a couple of upset stomachs the service was slow it took about 45 minutes for the mains to arrive and all the dishes were exactly the same even though they are described very differently on the menu. The meat was... More
