WHY isn't this restaurant busier. The food is fantastic, the service also good. A 'different' menu to the regular bangladeshi venues. If you are going out for a curry please try 1580 you won't be disappointed

I went plenty of time and always is perfect. Samosa starter amazing and lots of choices in main course dishes. Waiter who usually served me is very friendly and professional.

I have dined in several great Indian restaurants in Birmingham over the years and the vast majority have been excellent, although the food at this restaurant was okay it certainly was not the best Indian I have had in Birmingham. The food here lacked something in its overall taste and flavours that made it an average meal instead of a great meal. Obviously Indian food differs from region to region but still I found something was lacking in the overall taste of the meal. Although the food was rather average, the service was very good with nice waiting staff and the drinks, especially the bottled beers, were good as well. We will give this place another go the next time we visit our relatives in Birmingham.

Thought we would give this restaurant a visit based on all of the fantastic reviews. It absolutely lived up to all expectations. Samosa starter was delicious, followed by the vegetable biryani and then Naz advised us to finish off with her home-made kulfi. Have to admit this was absolute heaven. My hubby is not a dessert person, but he did have to agree it was delicious! Everything had the most wonderful fragrances and flavours to get the taste buds going. A definite recommendation from both of us.

Really pleased you enjoyed the visit and the food - especially the dessert. We are most proud of this but usually the orders are sparse after filling our guests up. So pleased you gave it a go. Thanks for the recommendation and top rating. It's really appreciated. See you soon.

The mixed starter platter was superb, with the soft shell crab a very unusual but delicious inclusion. We also had a beautiful, creamy and very moreish dhall, mopped up with light and puffy naan bread. Loved the roasted (rather than fried) popadums - much healthier for us! The staff was super friendly and helpful. A great evening out.
