Great food, very aware of options for vegans. Service was excellent and a lovely atmosphere. It was a little noisey but that was just because people were having a good time. I would recommend this to anyone who loves Pakistani food

It is pretty outstanding to have a great service at a busy restaurant. Patient waiters help you choose your dishes and combinations that would be good. The best part is the complementary sweets. Simply wonderful.

We really enjoyed our meal which was based on recommendations from the waiters, given that we would never been able to decide from the extensive menu. A buzzing place (more atmosphere and better decor downstairs than were we were seated, but we only booked 30 mins before arriving) and very attentive and fun staff. If I am in the area, or staying again at Birmingham airport, I would definitely return. Good food and great value for money.

Living 100 miles away from this restaurant in Swindon, and I kid you not it is my third time here just to dine at this restaurant. Honestly the BEST Indian/Bangladeshi food you will have and staff are just amazing. Great hospitality. Not a single thing to even critique about.

Everything about this place was really good except the food. I can honestly say it was the worst curry I have ever had. I sent it back because of how bad it was as and they re done my meal and I still couldn’t eat it. They did strike the meal off the bill and were very understanding and apologetic. The service is really good so if they could sort out the food it would be 10/10 but I’m afraid I won’t be returning

Coming from America and having indulged in a variety of this Indian restaurants all over the world , I guess a lot of the this place serves to the local taste. the food tends to be a little bit bland for the palate. Definitely the servers are a lot more chatty giving you too much of a prescription of the menu and also tend to do their hospitality a bit too much which may be OK with some folks but for me it felt a little bit exaggerated.

Bottom line the food was good, fresh, could have had more spices and heat!

First time around was an amazing experience. The waiter was very friendly and eager to recomment a starter box and main dishes. As a surprise we got a desert plate we did not order. Because of our good experience we went the day right after. We were pretty much treated the same with the same starter and desert platter. The magic was disenchated realizing everything was pre-programmed. Nevertheless great food at good prices.

We had read quite a few bad reviews regarding Jilabi but with a table of four, every one of us enjoyed the food. Staff were friendly and accommodating and gave good recommendations from the menu. We wanted for nothing. I would be more than happy to visit this restaurant again.

I look forward to many more visits.

This restaurant is streets ahead in the service stakes, every time we go there we are welcomed like house guests. The last occasion was for my brother in Laws 70th Birthday, well we were treated to special buffet foods brought to the table for starters and mains even though it was buffet Sunday. At the end of the meal they brought the birthday boy a bottle of Champagne to go with his cake along with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday. A truly wonderful experience and members of the party that had not been there before have now put it on their must repeat list to bring their friends and family to this very special restaurant with the lovely views of Sheldon Country Park. Only thing that they could improve would be parking as this is limited. But hey this is minute issue when to take in the food and service of this eating palace.

This was the first time we went to Jilabi and we will definitely be returning, as soon as you walk in you are given a warm welcome.
The staff could not do enough to help, they made sure we were all happy and the food was satisfactory, we chose to have the buffet which was lovely and when the staff saw that we were having desserts they bought us out some cake and ice cream, and a dish of sweets which my son really enjoyed as did my in laws with the complimentary liquor at the end of the meal.
Overall it was such a lovely atmosphere and as I said we will definitely be returning to try a meal from the menu.
