On the trail of the very best Balti in Birmingham

Not being a big fan of genuine 'mop your brow' curry I found a delicious alternative Balti. Everyone knows that Birmingham is the Balti-belt but with such a bewildering number of restaurants to choose from it's difficult to know where to go.

I have found a Gem in the Shabar Tandoori in Sheldon. The Balti experience should be more than just a dish and the service and ambiance of the Shabar gave me just that with traditional music and candles, and the ceremony of still sizzling food being wheeled to my table.

It may sound obvious but popadums and mint sauce are a must. They have a blend of yoghurt and mint just right. There is an extensive menu with everything from Chicken Tikka to traditional English fare for the faint-hearted.

I like a medium curry and one with lots of flavour, colour and aroma. I found my favourite Rogan Josh. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of vegetables and the fact that they weren't soggy, the potatoes were also well cooked and not hastily served up.

My Partner had Chicken Balti and commented that the meat was tender and juicy as it should be.

The Servings were very generous and I never made it to dessert!

But what made the biggest impression on me was the service - attentive but not intrusive, formal but not distant.
