“Outstanding and imaginative cooking with an Indian twist” is key to the success of this “elegant and evolved restaurant” over the past dozen years. Locally born founder Jay Rahman worked at top-ranked Birmingham venues Lasan and Purnell’s before taking over and transforming his uncle’s traditional curry house, fka Hassan’s. In line with its evolution, “the sommelier suggests some interesting and well-thought-out wine pairings”.

“Classy in every sense”, this elegant 11-year-old shows “attention to detail in every department” resulting in “excellently executed takes on classic Indian dishes”, underpinned by “exemplary service”. It moved a few years ago to elegant Pittville Park premises.

“Always delicious Indian fine-dining” has established Prithvi – Sanskrit for ‘Mother Earth’ – as a “superb choice for a special occasion”. Emphatically “not your standard Indian”, the venture celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, having upgraded to an elegant Pittville Park setting more suited to its culinary achievements a few years ago.

“Clever, well-imagined” and “delicately spiced food, unlike any normal Indian restaurant” distinguishes this “superb” venue, named after the Skanskrit for ‘Mother Earth’. Opened in 2012, it has now moved house into a “much more elegant setting” opposite Pittville Park. Top Tip: “a relative bargain for lunch”.

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).

"Food was fabulous. Service excellent including coping with our odd diets and lending my mother a set of reading glasses as she had forgotten hers. Highly recommended. "

"Rather a disappointing visit. Though the food was elegantly presented it was seriously over spiced (scallops starter) or underpowered (ox cheek main). Service was mixed - generally professional, but one supercilious staff member grated. The room is actually spacious enough but the design makes it feel rather crowded and oppressive. Perhaps this was a bad day but I'm not tempted to return; Bhoomi offers food at least as good (if a little less ambitious), in slightly pleasanter surroundings with consistently delightful service - all at considerably lower cost!"
