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 was a first time visitor to Jilabi and the experience was beyond expectations. It was really well presented as a venue and the staff is very kind, polite and informative. I had no idea of what to order but the staff recommended and great option and it worked out well.

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.

Within 5 minutes of arriving at Jilabi, you know that you are going to get a great meal. The restaurant was packed and seemingly very popular. The only disappointment that we had was the 30 minute wait for our table despite having booked in advance. Usually I wouldnt mind the wait, however we were put in a small corner at the restaurant to wait in without a drink to hand. Having said that everything after that was impeccable. The food was great quality & the service equally as good. Despite being such a big restaurant you were made to feel welcome by all the waiters & waitresses. The food more than made up for the problems at the start and it was a fantastic meal - I wouldn’t want to go elsewhere again for a curry!

Food is lovely but they over book and leave you waiting half an hour standing in the hall way.
This place used to be great when it was smaller but over the years and as they've expanded they like to get you in and out. Asking u how you are going to pay before you've even finished and asked for the bill.

We have been to Jilabi on many occasions and it is always the choice when we want good food and wonderful service. On this occasion my family from Telford were with us and they are always blown away by the whole experience and always say that they need Jilabi to open up in Telford as there is nothing to compare. Outstanding, excellent and our favourite.

I only go to Jilabi when i want a curry as the food is amazing. We usually have a take away but on this occasion went to the restaurant for a sit down. If it is a relaxing meal you want then this isn't the place. It's very busy and very loud and i felt like they couldn't wait to give us the bill to get us out quick enough. Wont be rushing back for a sit down meal. Shame as it never used to be like that

i brought a friend to jibabi's as it was her birthday the week before, i have been to the restaurant many times with friends and family and the service has always been the best. that evening we was shown to our table, our waiter was so busy that other waiters came over to ask us if there was anything we needed. As i brought my friend to show her what a great restaurant it was the service is amazing, that is not what we got that evening so apologized to my friend for the lack of service we got. The food was amazing as always.

Very very loud and busy which wasn't a bad thing as it was lively and just what you need when you have kids so no one can hear how loud they are haha! The service was impeccable and the food was top notch. Price was good too. Overall i would reccommend. Only downside is no parking on main coventry rd and the parking police were out at 10pm giving people parking tickets!
