Birmingham’s Lasan, an Indian restaurant in the Dakota Buildings down James Street, close to St Paul’s Square, was named the best local restaurant in the UK by Gordon Ramsay in 2013. It’s also one of the Sunday Times’ top 100 UK restaurants, and has put head chef Aktar on the map as the first ever self-trained chef to take part in the BBC’s Great British Menu challenge. Accolades aside, Lasan is clearly a winner for fine Indian dining in Birmingham, successfully blowing people away with their bold interpretations of India’s rich culinary traditions. With such momentum behind them, you’ll need to book if you want to dine at Lasan!

More about Lasan Restaurant, Birmingham

What more can we say about Lasan, the Birmingham-based Indian restaurant that has attracted more praise from diners and food critics alike than all others in the UK? Its premises in the Dakota Buildings down James Street, a quiet lane off St Paul’s Square, have taken legions of curry lovers by storm. That’s already quite a claim for Birmingham, undoubtedly Britain’s curry capital, but the love for Lasan has truly national – and international – scope. It’s only been around since 2002, but with the passionate and (incredible to say) self-trained director chef Aktar at the helm, Lasan is truly a world-class Indian restaurant in the heart of Birmingham’s artisanal Jewellery Quarter.

The three fundamental principles governing Birmingham’s Lasan are a sincere love for authentic Indian food, an unswerving passion for creation and reinvention and the desire to take the utmost care and immense pride in its presentation. Indeed, every dish at Lasan is authentic, innovative, and beautifully presented. Take the konkan kekada, for instance, a dish carried over into Lasan’s James St restaurant from the fish course that won on the BBC’s Great British Menu. Here, soft shell Devonshire crab is dipped in a crispy ajwain and Kashmiri chilli batter alongside green pea and potato cakes, raita, and a sour raw mango chutney. Or Lasan’s winner for Gordon Ramsay, the elaichi beef, in which Hereford beef, reared naturally on Stokemarsh Farm, is marinated and braised overnight, accompanied by bone marrow pakora and tandoori-baked sweetbreads plus a black cardamom-scented cashew nut gravy. Already you can see how Lasan isn’t afraid to take the traditions of Indian cuisine, held dear to its heart, and experiment, wowing diners – clearly – every time. Lasan is just a short walk from St Paul’s Square in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, but do be sure you book a table to avoid disappointment.
