Set in a handsome, half-timbered house down Station Road in the picturesque village of Knowle, The Lloyds Indian Restaurant serves up (and delivers for free!) some of the best Indian in the local area. The fine selection of Indian dishes (plus some European classics) brings in diners from across Solihull, and it’s a big plus that The Lloyds insist on non-GM foods and a regular schedule of live entertainment, and are perfect hosts when you’re in need of a private function or outdoor catering.
For a village of around 11,000 people, Knowle is home a surprising number of fantastic restaurants. Just a short drive from Solihull town centre, people visit Knowle not only for the quaint and very English prospects afforded by the West Midlands’ rolling green spaces and the village’s profusion of half-timbered, wattle-and-daub architecture. They come for the food too; and set into one of these Tudoresque domiciles along Station Road is an example of that other British institution, the curry house. The Lloyds Indian Restaurant is its name, and if fine Indian food is your game, you’ll want to check this gem out.
The Lloyds Indian Restaurant is open seven days a week from the early evening, whipping up a great range of Indian delicacies for casual diners and regular parties of people out for a celebration in Knowle. For private dining, The Lloyds offer their separate function room free of charge, and if the great outdoors is where you’d like to dine, they can come to you with their experienced external catering staff. The food at this Station Road restaurant is classic Indian, from their superlative samosas, through to the Full Monty, a decadent platter of chicken, lamb, and meen tikka, pakora and mini-prawn butterfly. Spice-timid Solihull residents will be glad to hear there’s a range of European dishes available as well.
Excellent service and really good food. I wpuld reccommend the chicken sagwala its delicious! The waiters are helpful and can't do enough for you. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere.
Excellent food and staff very welcoming and accommodating, will definitely return and highly recommended. Food value for money and staff happy to talk through dishes
We went to Lloyd’s for a celebratory meal and all ordered the kurzi lamb. As always we received great service and delicious food. Looking forward to next time already.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. Service was prompt, but not intrusive. The menu was comprehensive and when our meal arrived, it was hot and just what we ordered. Our table was clean and well set out. We had a very nice evening with good food, well presented.
6 of us went out for a meal at lloyds. We had great service from knowleable waiters, and there was an interesting menu with more than the usual suspects. There are always generous portions and everything was very tasty. One person asked for an extra mild biryani sauce and they were happy to oblige. The only thing that let the experience down last night is my garlic mushroom starter where I suspected the mushrooms were from a tin. All the rest of the food was excellent.
As a group of 4, we had a very warm welcome and excellent service throughout the evening. The starters varied quite a bit in size (prawn bhunas were very generous, samosas more of a normal size ). The main courses were all delicious and varied in flavour, which we like as we share. We couldn't manage a dessert, so I can't comment on those! Can't wait to go back.
Our visit here was without a doubt fantastic . I have a dairy allergy and nothing seemed too much trouble for them . I was assured that most food could be cooked to order, and that it was . I was for once made to feel like a normal customer instead of an awkward one ! Nothing was too much trouble and the food awesome !
Great meal at The Lloyds Indian Restaurant. Excellent food and very attentive service as usual. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a fantastic indian meal. Definitely the best in the area.
This is a spacious, stylish restaurant where the staff are very pleasant, efficient and professional. The restaurant was very busy on our visit but we were quickly attended to and all our questions answered in a friendly manner. Service was very efficient but not in any way intrusive. All our food was delicious and came in generous portions and we left feeling that we had enjoyed our evening completely. Highly recommended.
We arrived at 7.00pm and the staff were very helpful and welcoming and we were served drinks very quickly and our order taken. Sadly the food wasn't as good as expected. The starters very average and the balties was pretty tasteless, the chicken wasn't particularly tender and 2 of our party had food that included lamb which was very tough. By 7.45pm as the restaurant filled up it became very loud and was very difficult to hear or have a conversation. It was rather like being in a bar rather than a restaurant. Sadly we won't be going there again and wouldn't, based on our visit, recommend it.
