“Bilash - ok but check your bill very carefully”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

The food is ok, but the seating and table area could be sectioned for more privacy. However the issue came with the bill - despite having four main courses and poppadoms for 4 people, we were overcharged by £20. When queried, the Manager noticed the overcharge without even properly looking at the bill. Makes me wonder whether they check how much people have had to drink before overcharging.....

This is a very good local restaurant. The chef on a Friday & Saturday night is excellent. The service can bea bit slow if they are busy. Beautful vegetarian dishes.

“Our Go-To Balti House”
Reviewed 10 March 2013 via mobile

Living in Fradley, this is the closest restaurant to us and we were so pleased when we moved in to discover it was a good one.
The staff are friendly and service is good, I guess some people may find it a bit slow, that's actually one of the things we like, you never feel like you're being rushed and have plenty of time to recover between courses.
The food is good and well presented and if you (like me) end up ordering more than you can eat they are happy to do a doggy bag.
Well priced at around £30 for 2 with poppadoms, starters and mains and BYO for drinks.

“APPALLING SERVICE AND TASTELESS FOOD..... AVOID”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

Were do I start? We arrived at 7.35 and our main course didn't arrive until 9.25!! As only half of us had starters we had several very hungry diners. One of our party gave up and cancelled his order. Our main waiter was EXTREMELLY rude although the other 2 did put in more of an effort. In a party of 12 not one of us was happy with our meal. I only ordered a chicken salad with no onion and they even got that wrong, I was informed by our waiter though that this was my own fault..... Silly me! When asked by one of the other waiters if everything was ok, we told him our complaints and were told ''We are having a bad day but don't worry next time we will make it nicer for you!'' REALLY!!! You actually think we will be back????
To top off the evening on checking the bill, when they eventually brought it over, we realised they had scored through the actual amount due and rounded it up thereby overcharging us by almost £20. Throughout the evening we noticed takeaways and tables of up to 4 were served very quickly but larger tables were left waiting I can only assume this was because they thought (wrongly in some cases)that larger groups were drinking and less likely to realised how bad the service was and therefore less likely to walk out.

“Service shocking & food not that great”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

After waiting 25 minutes to order, 40 minutes for starters to come than a further 30 minutes for mains to come out after starters cleaned away, meals wrong when they did come out. Then the waiter was rude don't think like confrontation from a female the cheek of it they only tried to over charge us. Won't be going back in a hurry
