Birmingham is the unrivalled home for great Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine in Britain. Of course, there are pretenders to the throne (we’re looking at you, Brick Lane and we’re looking at you, Curry Mile) but Birmingham is king. Added to the city’s prestige is Edgbaston’s Banu Bangladeshi Restaurant. Along Hagley Road, the team have brought a riot of flavour to this corner of the city for locals and visitors alike.
