Those on the hunt for Bangladeshi cuisine in Stourbridge have got much to be grateful for in Harry’s of Lye on the High Street. Formerly Laxy’s of Lye, the restaurant’s history stretches back to 1998 and has gone from strength to strength since then. Home to freshly prepared Bangladeshi dishes and a smattering of other subcontinental delights, the menu at Harry’s offers comforting food in a chic, smart environment.
Harry’s of Lye on Stourbridge’s High Street is a quintessential British curry house. Bringing together the exotic and fragrant dishes of Bangladeshi cuisine with a smart, modern dining room and friendly service, Harry’s has proved itself to be popular with diners for the best part of two decades. The service at Harry’s is pretty famous, expect to be greeted at the door by Harry himself and welcomed as an old friend to select from a menu of traditional favourites and new classics from the subcontinent.
One of Harry of Lye’s chief charms is that even after 15+ years serving diners with some Stourbridge’s finest Bangladeshi food, the restaurant remains unlicensed. As such, for diners tucking into a generous portion of tandoori fish bhuna masala or rangeela murghi they’re invited to bring a bottle of something they fancy for a small corkage ensuring that a night at Harry’s on the High Street is as affordable as it is fun. Undoubtedly one of the neighbourhood’s most popular restaurants, would-be guests are well advised to make a reservation, especially over the weekend.
The staff were very friendly and gave great food service. The food was well priced and was very nice we would definitely recommend that you try this restaurant.
Easy reservation process. Warm welcome upon arrival with pleasant waiter. No pressure on time to order and poppadoms delivered while we chose. No pressure to vacate our table despite being the only people left in the restaurant. They were even prepared to make coffees afterwards.
Excellent food and excellent, friendly service. We would definitely go back again. Don't forget to take your own drinks (helps to keep the cost down too).
Good food and good service . Nice, clean and modern. Staff were very polite and friendly. It was our first visit and would return again.Highly recommend.
Saturday night is not the best time to go, it is over crowded and the staff are running around like crazy As a consequence it took a while for them to get back to us for the order,. It took half an hour to get starters stuffed mushrooms were raw, prawns were odd and another hour to get the main course the spinach and curd cheese had 'raw' cheese in it, it's always melted when I've had it before - could be regional difference. The Biriani was poor and the butter chicken was loads of sauce and little chicken. The flavour was however very good. My son's both had vindaloo chicken and they thought it was very good. However, the nail in the coffin was the waiter who was very rude when trying to clear the table as we were leaving. We left only pennies for a tip because of this and we are unlikely to go again.
Great night service was excellent staff polite and friendly food was delicious. Would recommend and go again. Lovely place. We weren't rushed out we took our time and enjoyed the food and surroundings.
The night out for a meal at Harry's restaurant was fabulous good food clean and tidy the guys who served us were friendly and always smiling and very good value for money
I ordered a chicken tikka and butternut squash curry (adding spinach and chickpeas) but when it arrived it had no chicken in it at all. I enjoyed it none the less and this was the only negative.
Great food, great service, great place. Looked after our party of 15 brilliantly. One of the best balti restaurants you will find in this or any area.
We went to this establishment as a group of 4 and all of us were happy with it! Very good food, excellent value, pleasant service. Recommend!
