About Shabar Restaurant

Everyone knows Birmingham is good for a balti, but with so much choice, finding the best can be difficult. Curry lovers of Birmingham and of Sheldon, allow us to introduce: Shabar Restaurant! Set on Arden Oak Road, Shabar offers high-class Indian cuisine that stands out from the crowd, and it’s balti that’s the main attraction. Try a balti bhuna, a balti sagwala or, if you think you’ve got what it takes, the balti chilli. Then there’s the choice of meat or veggies, all of which are sourced fresh. All the curry house classics are available, too, as well as some Shabar house specialities that offer a further wandering from the norms of Indian dining in Birmingham. See what the fuss is about and reserve a table now.

We had a great meal. Food was excellent. Service was perfect. Even brought my husband a selection of spectacles when he had forgotten his and could not read the menu! Recommended to some colleagues at NEC conference and they also were delighted.

Brilliant place. The food is excellent and the staff always make you feel really special and well looked after. Our eleven-year-old son chose to go there for his birthday meal and they made a real fuss of him and of us all. We especially love the sag paneer, but everything we've tried has been really good.

The food here is fantastic and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. Be sure to book for busy times, a lesson we learned years back. Every time I visit Birmingham with business partners, this is always the place to go. Some of the ratings criteria on this form seem a little odd though - for 'noise' Mute is the best answer - but who wants to eat in a silent restaurant??

Fabulous food, wonderful service. Couldn't be faulted. So glad I booked, the restaurant was heaving at 7.15 on a Saturday, but they led us upstairs to a tranquil dining room. Go hungry! The portions are generous.

Excellent food and service despite being very busy. Table was the only one available and marked clearly reserved so it was not accidentally given to anyone else. Runs like a well oiled machine.

The staff were very friendly, we ordered a range of food which was all good apart from the English dish of roast chicken which was a bit dry. It was excellent value though, 4 courses for £9.95!

Went for a meal with friends. Didn't have to wait too long past our booking time for our table this time (which we sometimes have in the past). Good atmosphere, food was hot and tasty. Service good as well.

Disappointed. Not sure if there has been a change in chefs but the food was poor. My chicken balti was not a balti. Very bland.
