    I would go as far as saying that this is they best Indian food that I've ever tasted - and I'm really fussy! The waiter was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. Overall the bill was very reasonable. If I lived locally we would be visiting regularly.

    The waiters were very polite. but the food was not that great. The pawns that came wit the starter was very chewy so i guess its either a few days old or extremely over cooked. I had better and paid a lot less. Naan Bread was nice tho. also the toilets did not feel very clean.

    I guess Milan is nicer than your average Balti house, and has some more interesting things on its menu. However the experience overall wasn't outstanding. We ordered 3 popadoms between 2 of us. One was massive and burnt, the other 2 were small, like the Sharwoods ones you buy at Tesco. The wine was quite weak, to the point where it may have been watered down. I asked for water and no one brought it, so I was sat thirsty for a while. However, the waitress was very apologetic and brought some over when I told her. Generally the staff are nice and our meals were tasty.

    Although the interior decode is not as polished as some of the other competitors, the restaurant had welcoming, friendly staff with a live jazz music playing while we dined. The staff was always on hand to order more drinks or see if the food was okay and meals were brought out with more than enough time to enjoy the different courses. I'd dine here again.

    Good clean flavours. The boss knew that one of our group had a cucumber allergy, but didn't seem to know that they'd also booked us in for the 25% off early evening deal. We had to remind them of that.

    Visited Milan Indian Cuisine on a business lunch and was extremely disappointed with the service which was rude and abrupt. This was a real shame as the food itself was excellent

    We booked a table at Milan last minute one Friday evening. It was very quiet when we arrived and even when it got busier it just didn't really have the atmosphere I enjoy on an evening out. The lights are too bright and there seems to be a lot of waiters just standing around. The menu choice was good and food arrived quickly. Meals were tasy and nicely spiced, but nothing about them really stood out, even though we chose completely different dishes than we usually would, and purposely chose dishes that looked unusual. Having said that it was good value and as the food was nice I would go back.

    Very happy with the meal. Big space, quite empty due to heavy snow, but great service and more 'authentic' food than a lot of Indians. Good wine selection too. Impressed overall!

    Dined on 29/9/2012
    Saturday night maybe was not the right time to go if you want to chill and talk. It was so busy with 2 large parties and it was so noisey we could not here eachother talk. The food was very nice indeed and hot the starter was lovely. We asked for a 20 minutes break between starter and main but the food was bought out after 5 minutes. We had to ask for water and a beer 4 times so the service was not that good at all. I didn't even ask for the bill and was it was brought over and given to my friend who paid it. Why assume the man will always pay the bill? so that was embarrassing. Will give it another try as the food is nice and the place is nice but the service was not all that.

    starters were very good. however after the first course, everything went pear shaped. chicken korma was very bland and tasteless, the pilau rice had more flavour than the korma (did not enjoy it at all). lentil and chick pea side dishes were alway very bland. lamb rogan josh was nothing spectacular. desserts were okay. service was friendly and efficient. the restaurant felt cold from the time we walked in until the end of the evening

    We (a party of three) had a pleasant dinner at Milan Indian Cuisine in Birmingham. The food was good (if on the hot side for some of the dishes), the portions generous, and the service attentive and efficient. Would go there again, especially with their current 25% discount on food.

    Dined on 9/7/2011
    My partner a I went to Milan Indian Cuisine in Birmingham. We used a Groupon we could have a starter, a main with rice & a naan & a dessert for £24. The Starter was a selection of chicken tikka shish keebab & Salmon. My main was nice although the membrane on the Monkfish hadnt been removed so it had curled up & was quiet tough. My partners main was a lamb dish which was just full of white fat & no meat, so we complained, the head chef came out & explained then the manager offered us a free main

    There are plenty of super-plush indian restaurants in Birmingham nowadays, but you certainly pay for all those fixtures and fittings when you dine there. Milan has been going for years, and whilst the decor might give that away, the food certainly doesn't. Good food, good value, friendly staff.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/2/2011
    I had not been to the Milan in Birmingham since 1992, so wondered if it was still as good as I remembered. I should not have worried. The service was polite and attentive and the food was excellent. In particular, my wife was enchanted with the sea bream and its delicious delecate coconut based sauce - the highlight of the evening. Whilst a little out of the way, it is certainly worth finding even in a city like Birmingham that has so many good restaurants.
