I really enjoy the food here, having eaten here numerous times I have always been more than satisfied with the standard of food and service. Having eaten at the more up market establishments in the city centre this restaurant rivals them on taste and beats them hands down on price.

We do like our curries and I think it can sometimes be difficult when trying a new one, as you are always comparing it to your favourite (Pangaea in Kings Heath).

We last visited the Khayam about 25 years ago and thought we would try it again. They don't do draught Cobra which is a disappointment but I can live with that. The chutneys and poppadoms were very nice, particularly the lime pickle. However, the main meal was a bit bland and the chicken tikka had too much red colouring on it. The mattar paneer was quite pleasant. The nan was good, but I can't imagine why this restaurant is so high up in the ratings for Birmingham. It was ok, no more and no less. It certainly shouldn't rank as highly as it does, and when I look at some of the restaurants which are below it, I am very surprised. I wouldn't recommend that you go out of your way to visit the Khayam as the food isn't any better than your average Indian restaurant. The one thing that I did like was the fact that they had carpets on the floor which deadens the sound. I am so fed up with restaurant where you can hardly hear each other speaking.

My husband and I have eaten here a couple of times and each time the food and service has been faultless. We would happily eat here again.

It is a quiet restaurant and is located down the quiet end of the high street. We have always been in an evening in the week and been able to park outside but there is plenty of local parking.

We would definateley recommend this place.
