Summary

“Down a dodgy-looking side street” in the Jewellery Quarter, this “upmarket Indian may not be a romantic venue, but it’s of a quality found only rarely in the UK”. “Unsung hero of Asian cuisine, Aktar Islam, cooks sincere and brilliant combinations that are superbly matched with the wine flight: it’s a great culinary experience!”

Summary

“Deserving much more recognition!” – this modern Jewellery Quarter venture (Brum’s best-rated Indian of any ambition) “delivers way ahead of expectations”, with its “tremendous”, “tingly-fresh” cooking, and “beautiful presentation”. Opinions divide on the “white-walled interior with Indian sculptures” – what’s an “unpromising space” to sceptics is to most reporters “very inviting”.

Summary

“In an otherwise dull road in the Jewellery Quarter”, this “welcoming” (but “noisy”) modern space is Brum’s pre-eminent Indian, serving “very innovative” dishes with “a superb level of attention to ingredients, cooking and presentation”; it also has a “balti belt” offshoot, in Hall Green.

Summary

“Indian food, but not as you know it”; that’s the deal, – complete with “stunning presentation” and “amazing attention to detail” – that makes this “innovative” city-centre “benchmark” a “memorable” destination for almost all who comment on it; it has a café-offshoot in Hall Green.
