Service worse than ever, which is a bizarre achievement. However now even the food is dreadful.

We have been looking for an unlicensed Indian Restaurant for some time and Jilabi was recommended by a work acquaintance. 5 members of my family had a meal at 7pm last week. The staff were pleasant and helpful and ambience good. The restaurant was very busy. Our food was good and portion size just right. Nicely presented. Complimentary desserts and coffee. £70 for 5, quite reasonable. They did have a problem with the vegan meal but the manager soon dealt with this. Everyone working there was very busy but still managed to smile! We have booked again for August.

Great restaurant- staff are very attentive without being over bearing. Really made us feel welcome.

Food was fantastic - with generous portions and fantastic flavours. This was my 2nd time here in the last few months and will be back again when working in Birmingham!

As most people have noted, the customer service here is excellent! Food is tasty and you can bring your own alcohol so this keeps prices reasonable. We’ll definitely be recommending to others and returning ourselves.

Didn't get asked my name on arrival after making a special request to be seated in a secluded spot and was stuck amongst a party, then to top it off I found a hair in my main meal.

Food and service very good, shame that we were put on a table at the back of the restaurant. Also for some reason they had no Cobra beer (only Peroni! ) so we had to go next door to Tesco to buy some take out for the table !

We visited Jilabi the night before we were flying out of nearby Birmingham airport. We stayed at a hotel within walking distance and had booked in advance using OpenTable. The staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. We only visit once a year as we live abroad but we are already looking forward to our next visit!

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
