“Aktar Islam (ex-Lasan) is doing a fabulous job in his new venue” – a “super-stylishy”, 70-cover venture that’s immediately hailed as “Birmingham’s best Indian”, with “dedicated” staff delivering an “equisite” and “exciting” modern twist on Indian cuisine. “It’s is a little off the beaten track from the city-centre but well worth seeking out”. In October 2019, Michelin – unusually for a regional Indian – awarded it a star.

Summary

Aktar Islam left Lasan to strike out on his own at this 70-cover May 2018 newcomer. It opened too late for any survey feedback, but early reports online suggest it will rival his old gaff as Brum’s foremost ‘nouvelle Indian’.

"Exemplary, imaginative cooking - don’t expect high end traditional Indian food, that’s not what Opheem is about. This is innovative, modern Indian food, cooked to perfection and with style. Yes, (much!) more chilli heat would have been welcome, but that is, I suppose, a matter of taste. Service was excellent but I got the impression that they were trying too hard to meet ‘Michelin expectations’. I’m not sure that all of waiters understood the composition or concept of the dishes they were serving. Hopefully with time this will improve. The ambiance really wasn’t for me - smart but rather chintzy - and noise levels much too high. I’m being picky here - the quality of the food made up for these slight short fallings. We had a very enjoyable evening and will, I’m sure, return."

"Value for money? £70 for three courses seemed excessive on Friday evening. It’s £50 week days. Other than that, a very enjoyable experience. "
