The West Midlands has one of the most diverse dining cultures in the UK, but one style of cooking stands out above them all. This is the land of the Balti, a British take on an Indian culinary classic, and all over Birmingham one can find Balti houses offering the local speciality. One such joint is Vakas Balti on Windmill Hill in Halesowen, where they offer some of the finest in traditional Indian cuisine around.

Few things get the average punter in Birmingham going quicker than the prospect of a night on the Cobra and curry. Their local speciality – Balti – is a fusion of traditional Indian methods with contemporary British tastes, and the whole West Midlands conurbation is dotted with balti houses that offer up the dish to the hungry public. On Windmill Hill in Halesowen, their local dealer is Vakas Balti.
The tropes of a great Balti house are quite simple: friendly service, an homely atmosphere and a killer menu: lucky then, that at Vakas on Windmill Hill in Halesowen, they have all three. The food production is split between the tandoor and the balti, and there are plenty of house specials that are sure to keep the Indian food aficionados of Birmingham coming back time and again. Vakas Balti is a popular choice, so to avoid disappointment making a reservation in advance is advised.
