Absolutely superb service, couldn't rate it high enough. We had a large table of 20 for work colleagues and customers and everyone commented on how great the food and service were. The waiters could not do enough to help and were friendly and fun making sure everyone was happy and having a good time. They even went so far as to help with organising various taxis to different locations at the end of the night. The food was fantastic. They brought out a continuous stream of different dishes for everyone to taste and explained in detail all of the ingredients. Best Indian restaurant I have been to, highly recommend it.

 (Birmingham)·Dined on 25 October 2017

Tip top service and food wrapped up in a big warm hug of welcoming hospitality by every member of staff - especially those who served us throughout the meal knowing time was tight. I love the Railway Lamb but, this time, chose Highway Chicken - yet another explosion of intriguing spices and deliciousness. We had phoned to warn them we would be late due to motorway congestion. This was immediately met sympathetically with information about the cause and junction and were told not to worry. The staff at Jilabi simply cannot do enough to please you - and it comes from the heart. As before, we can’t wait to return.

We absolutely loved our evening at this restaurant!! It was buffet night and the food was amazing and plentiful. We asked if madras was on the buffet - although it wasn't, they cooked us fresh, piping hot madras delivered to our table at no extra cost. It was my birthday and all the staff came out with cake and a candle singing 'happy birthday'. We were also given a complimentary bottle of champagne. The staff were absolutely incredible and made the whole evening immensely enjoyable. If you try any Indian restaurant, you must try this one. Can't wait to return!! Big shout out to gavinder and the two other guys who looked after us so well. Thank you :)

This restaurant never disappoints. Hospitality, food and service combine to give you a great Indian dining experience. Instead of being in the same area as an exuberant office party, they considerately ushered us to a quiet area. Staff seemed to be genuinely disappointed that we had to rush off in time for our show and missed dessert.

We are just a 20 minute walk from the Jilabi and treated ourselves to their amazing buffet Sunday 17th Sept. There was the usual lovely welcome as if we were long lost relations and a 60th Birthday party in full flow. Seated and usual chat and then into the buffet. To be honest a tadge too delicious and as always we overate. Looking forward to the next time already lol and yes the walk back took a little longer !!!

This restraunt is the best Indian cuisine that I have tasted in years. Coupled together with the friendly staff and amazing prices you get what you paid for and more.
Unlike like most Indian restaurants the food was not oily/greasy they had a great selection for vegans, pescatarians and meat eaters. They cater for everyone. Cannot say how good this restraint is but if you take my word for it u will not be disappointed.
So good we ate there twice and got the amazing service and food the second time round. Brilliant.

Jilabi gave exceptional service from the welcome at the door to the leisurely meal although attentive you did not feel rushed by the staff who were happy to delay your main course had the starter proved larger than anticipated. The only drawback was parking fortunately we managed to get a spot outside but off road parking can be difficult. Certainly worth a second visit.

Brilliant food, buffet style but they brought selections to our table as well as we were a large party. Cooked specific curry fresh that one guest was after as it wasn't on the buffet for no charge. Starters were out of this world! Super attentive staff and a free round of after dinner drinks at the end. Unbelievable value.
