Manzils Restaurant is one of the oldest Indian curry houses in Birmingham. That’s quite an achievement in a city famed for its long association with curry and balti culture. Midge Ure from Ultravox has eaten here. In short, Manzils has been going strong along Birmingham’s Digbeth, near the Bull Ring Shopping Centre, Birmingham National Express Coach Station, The Hippodrome Theatre, Millenium Point, HMV Institute and The Custard Factory for half a century! That surely is recommendation enough. But if you need further prompting, how can a curry house last 50 years without offering some of the best Indian cuisine around?
Occupying premises along Birmingham’s Digbeth since the heady days of the mid-sixties, Manzils Restaurant is still family-run, and still ranks as a default destination in a city packed with curry houses. Their tried-and-tested formulae for superlative Indian cuisine, fine-tuned over time, includes mouth-watering tandoori dishes and mixed grills, extensive curry and balti options, plus plenty of vegetarian meals as well. Over the years, the committed chefs at Manzils, obviously in the biz for the long haul, have come up with some contemporary twists on the old classics, too. Fully licensed, a great selection of beer, wine, and spirits are available to accompany your meal. And, if you’re on a diet, just ask for the low calorie options!
Manzils is a fairly large Indian restaurant, with premises along Digbeth split into three smartly decorated dining areas. The front section alone can seat up to 50 guests, making it perfect for private hire when you’re celebrating with friends and family. We should add that the playlists on Manzils’ stereo system also reflect the good taste of the management, taking in what amounts to the history of modern popular music, from the swinging sixties up! Touring musicians do haunt this gem of a restaurant, but it’s got to be the incredible, authentic Indian cuisine on offer that keeps this place busy throughout the week. Even though Manzils is open from 6pm to 2am Sunday through Thursday, and until 4am on the weekend – nothing better than a post-party Indian pig out – bookings are advised for this famous Birmingham curry house.
Great traditional curry with friendly staff. Free beer for the birthday boy and the chicken in all the dishes was delicious would definitely go again
One of the only few True Indian taste restaurant with excellent service. Friendly staff and ambience. Very close to Birmingham city centre and reasonable prices.
Their balti is really tasty: we have ordered the chicken & lamb one. With the minced meat Nan is absolutely delicious. Also Friendly service! Highly recommended
