We went by bus to the Balti Triangle and found this lovely Indian Restaurent in Ladypool Road. Our first visit here. The staff hasn't been so super friendly but we were satisfied with the service. The food was authentic and lovely for a reasonable price. I had a balti korma curried chicken and my husband balti meat and kingprawn. Both... More

Unfriendly greeting. Waiter stared out of window when taking orders. Food served across front of people despite dishes being piping hot - no warning! One guest still eating starter when mains arrived and 'plonked' on table. Starter was good but mains was literally swimming in oil, this spoilt flavour of meat. On our departure there was no 'thank you', 'see... More

Away on a business trip to Birmingham my colleague and I decided a meal out in the Balti Triangle was a must. The reviews for Shababs looked promising and judging how busy it was when we arrived at 7:00pm thought we had made a choice. The menues are under the glass topped tables and the choice so vast we decided... More

I took my boss here last night and we had a fantastic meal. He described it as the best curry he'd ever had. It's consistently my favourite too. Keep it up Shababs! Brilliant food.

We got a taxi from the centre out to this restaurant having seen it on the Hairy Bikers. It was well worth the trip, taxi was very reasonable. The food we had was so tasty, not a scrap was left, definitely worth a trip! Everyone was friendly, we were not rushed, water and popadoms on table when we arrived, plus... More

Staff were extremely friendly. Food was worth the wait! Fresh food and well flavoured. Garlic naan was unbelievably fabulous. Travelled a great distance to try out this restaurant and it did not fail on taste. Bring your own alcohol to add to this really good food.
