We went for the Sunday buffet, out first experience at this restaurant, the venue is lovely, the selection is amazing with a lot of choice, constantly being topped up with fresh food. The staff were so friendly and helpful, they made us feel like there was nothing they wouldn't do to make our meal enjoyable. We will definitely go there again, we would recommend this place to anyone!!

I can’t fault my experience at Jilabis. The food was delicious and well priced. There was complimentary cake and coffee served which was a lovely touch. It is 10 miles away from where I live but it was worth the drive. There is a Tesco next door so I would suggest parking there if you struggle to find a spot out front.

Well! We came on recommendation , and it did not disappoint ! In fact the discussion at work today was “ can we go once a week?” And “ how about New Year?”
We felt totally pampered , we didn’t once have to ask for anything , but if we did, we had a waiter on hand . The food ? Beyond our expectations ! Thank you Jilabi .

I dont usually post reviews but.... i absolutely recommend this restuarant. From the warm welcome to the variety of foods and their delicious flavours to the amazing service to the many free additional items and the feeling of being the only patron in the restuarant.
More importantly it it the delicious food that will DEFINITELY make me return, considering we drove 2hrs to get there.

Highly recommend.

Huge praises for Ravell and his transparency.

Visited this restaurant with a friend on Thursday evening following the MC live show, the service , for and ambience was first class. Will visit again next year, coming from Glasgow we know our curries and this meal was on a par if not better than we can get anywhere in the city. No hesitation in recommending this restaurant, superb.

Easy booking online, staff are welcoming and friendly. Lots of choice on the menu & reasonably priced. We were deciding on 2 different dishes, when our meal came they also bought us a taster of the other meal to try. We will definitely be dining there again real soon. everything was perfect.

We were staying at the NEC/Airport before attending a conference the next day we were recommended The Jilabi and we took the short taxi ride to the restaurant. (Well worth the £13 taxi fare).
We were made very welcome by the staff, the service was impeccable and nothing was too much bother.
The food was AMAZING! Thank you for a fantastic dining experience. If we are ever in the area again we know where to come to.

We went for my brothers birthday on a buffet Sunday, and it was fantastic, the staff were lovely, it was a buffet style where you help yourself, however the staff also brought food to our table as there were so many of us... the food was delicious and we could not fault anything other than the fact that we couldn’t move after for how much we had eaten!! We will definitely be returning!

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.
