Serving upscale Indian dishes from its sophisticated location inside The Arcadian on Hurst Street in the Chinese Quarter, James Dahl Indian is a dining destination that will change the way you look at Indian cuisine. Utilising all-natural ingredients, seasonal produce and healthy cooking techniques, James Dahl Indian offers dishes that are light and fresh, a stark contrast to the usual heavy, albeit delicious, specialities we’ve come to associate with the Indian kitchen. Begin with starters like the James Special, chicken tikka and sheek kebab cooked in a dry sauce, or the rushani pangas, Bangladesh fish fried with spices, garlic and onions. For your main course, we recommend the saag tikka special, garlic, spinach and marinated chicken all cooked up together in a medley of spices and seasonings, or the vegetarian mushroom bhaji. James Dahl Restaurant is already a huge success and a winner at the 2016 Curry Awards, so be sure to book in advance to secure a table.
No bad words to say about James Dahl, the only thing I’d advise is to let customers know in advance about a set menu
The restaurant was perfect....friendly and professional. The food was great. Service was spot on....attentive without being overbearing. Would happily return here and certainly recommend it.
Found this restaurant when on a weekend away in Birmingham. Booked a table online about 2 hours before arriving. Very busy when we arrived but table was ready for us. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Menu was decent with a good selection of dishes. The food was really tasty with good sized portions. Had no complaints with anything. Overall I would highly recommend this restaurant.
