Further Information

The first step in the creation of Adil’s exquisite curries and balti dishes is to make the masala, the spice mix. Adil’s - The Pioneers Of Balti Cuisine is an (if not the) expert in this founding step, using exotic spices and herbs typical of the mountainous northern Indian and Pakistani region of the Kashmir, balancing them perfectly before using them during cooking at precisely timed intervals. Whether it’s a milder korma, the traditional masala balti, or the vindaloo that comes with a strong warning for novices and a strong recommendation for chilli-loving hotheads, the chefs at this Stoney Lane veteran know how to fire things up. An original in the Balsall Heath quarter of Birmingham’s Balti Triangle, trust Adil’s to begin their balti with a balanced blend.

There’s a lot of playful (and admittedly somewhat bitter) contention among the many Indian restaurants in Birmingham’s Balti Triangle. This collection of streets in three districts – Sparkbrook, Sparkhill, and Balsall Heath – are home to restaurants that are regularly credited with introducing South Asian cuisine to Britain, and specifically the balti style of cooking. Adil’s has been around since 1977, and it’s likely that this Stoney Lane restaurant is where it all began. At Adil’s - The Pioneers Of Balti Cuisine you can customise a balti, choosing the meat, seafood or vegetables to begin with, the flavourful masala sauce of your choice, and additional ingredients. The menu comes with a handy spice guide so you’re not taken too much by surprise. Beyond this bespoke innovation, it’s worth checking out the chef’s specials, time-honoured Kashmiri recipes that Adil’s Tandoori and Balti House has honed to perfection.

Excellent prompt and efficient service and fabulous food. Waiters extremely friendly and very courteous. If you go you have to have the table naan - it's huge!

I have eaten at this restaurant on three or four occasions in the last few years and considering I live nearly two hundred miles away I think that tells you what wonderful food and service we receive.

Everything about our dinner at Adil's was fantastic. The waitstaff were very knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming, and this impressed us even before the food had arrived. The food itself was absolutely delicious; I'm not convinced that I've ever had a better Indian in my life. Would wholeheartedly recommend this delightful establishment.

Very impressive meal from this peace, which has a good claim to be Brum's original balti restaurant. Would particular recommend the black and tarka daals, and the exquisite, crisp roti breads. Skip the starter and fill up on the mains!
