Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I like to support this restaurant as there are so few in Walmley Village. We were able to get a table without booking but the waiter’s were distant and barely civil when taking our order. The food was of poor quality with the chicken especially...being inedible- stringy and horrible. We did not finish our meals.More

Went for a meal 20/10/22 - starter chicken Bombay fry was cold in parts and other parts piping hot as if it had been warmed up in the microwave and just tasted of pure grease - main course - I had meat dupiaza minus some...of the meat I think the chef forgot to put much in and the 4 pieces that was in there was minuscule there was more pepper and onion than meat and sauce and was tasteless - would not recommend. My husband had the chicken tikka rogan josh he had 6 small pieces of chicken and a plate full of tomatoes when we stated this to the waiter he did give us a discount a whole £2.50 - no atmosphere - 2 waiters who didn’t care about any customers - definitely not going back - it used to be a nice place not anymoreMore

We visit whenever we can and it is the best curry house in Sutton Coldfield. The food is consistently very good and Ali is an amazing host. He knows his regulars well and always makes them feel welcome.

Sometimes you travel to restaurants and ignore those on your doorstep and then when you visit you realise you don’t have to travel far! We had an early evening meal, Chicken Sagwala for me and Chicken Korma for my wife with a boiled rice and...Nan bread to share. Popadoms and Chicken Tikka starters. Staff were lovely, food was served piping hot and it was very tasty. Note to self, use your local Indian restaurant!!!More

Overall the service is very good. The food is nice but found it a little oily. The spicy poppadums were burnt so will stick to normal. It’s local to us so would come here again. Prices are reasonable and the fact you can take your...own alcohol is fab!More

After waiting an hour and three quarters our patience ran out....we were disgusted with the non existent service.... all they were bothered about was looking after takeaway orders...they don't deserve to prosper. Take a good book to read while you wait all evening
