This “glitzy post-modern Indian” in the Jewellery Quarter serves “solid accomplished food” in a “stunning dining room”. Now 21 years old, it was an early pioneer of ambitious modern British-Indian cuisine but these days faces “lots of competition” in this field – not least from founding chef Aktar Islam, who left to open Opheem (see also).

Now in its 21st year, this “superior” Jewellery Quarter fixture has led the way in modernising British Indian cuisine, presented for “degustation” in a sophisticated setting. Ratings have remained very steady despite the travails of recent times – and the departure of high-profile chef-director Aktar Islam (see Opheem).

With its “beautiful food” and “great location” in the Jewellery Quarter, this pioneering venture has championed South Asian cuisine of the highest gastronomic ambition as an antidote to generic UK curry house fodder for two decades. Its ratings have slipped only fractionally since the departure three years ago of charismatic chef-director Aktar Islam (see Opheem), and founder Jabbar Khan remains dedicated to the original vision.

This “upmarket Indian in the Jewellery quarter” has pioneered a fine-dining approach as an alternative to the classic UK curry house for almost two decades. Ratings continue to impress under founder Jabbar Khan following the 2018 departure of high-profile chef-director Aktar Islam (see Opheem).

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
