Originally called Linden House, a Boarding School for girls from the 1820’s for much of the 19th Century until it became the
private residence of a local Doctor. In 1890 the proprietor of The George Hotel, adjacent to Linden House purchased the
building and over the decades it was integrated into The George Hotel. Now called the Ramada Solihull, purchased in 2012 by SGS Hotels (UK) Ltd, a subsidiary of the Subhash Gulati Group based in India, it was the vision of the group’s chairman Mr. Subhash Gulati and his family to bring the rich tradition along with the distinct local styles and flavours of North West India, most famously the Tandoori style of cooking to both the local area and customers at the hotel.

Lovely restaurant with excellent food and friendly prompt service, we had a pre dinner drink in the Hotel bar and were given a 15% off card which could also be used in the restaurant which was a nice bonus! The poppadums and chutneys were great and the mains of Chicken Dhansak and Tandoori mixed Balti were fantastic.
I would happily recommend Jiyaan.

Booked in to The Ramada Solihull on a Groupon deal for Dinner Bed & Breakfast, and we were delighted to see that The Jiyaan Restaurant was part of the hotel.
We booked a table, and, as it was my wife's birthday, I mentioned this in my online booking.
We were welcomed upon arrival by the most attentive staff, who wished my wife a happy birthday and showed us to our table. The meal was excellent from start to finish, with all of the courses being delicious and the service was exceptional. No fuss was made of my wife's birthday, which was not mentioned again until a complementary sweet was delivered consisting of Carrot Cake, Warm Chocolate Brownie and Strawberries - The whole thing decorated with a "Happy Birthday Message" if you are in Solihull, whether staying at the hotel or not, don't miss out on this fantastic restaurant. We shall certainly be back again. Thanks to all of the staff!????

Average curry really. Decent enough, but quite old-fashioned in presentation and taste

Very welcoming staff although we were the first table. Great choice of menu and food was good. The only exception was the tandoori chicken which was luke warm and had clearly stood for some time. The rest of the meal was very good.

There were 5 of us sharing a farewell meal in this relatively new restaurant situated at the Ramada Hotel, the service was friendly and attentive , just the right balance. We had a Delux Combo platter to share ( really tasty), this was for 3 but we had sufficient between us . For Main course I had Lamb Rogan Josh which was absolutely delicious, 2 of our party had lamb sag and another 2 had Chicken Passanda. Pilau rice and various Naan Breads were all consumed with gusto. Between us we had about 6 bottles of Indian lager and a few soft drinks. The whole meal came to £118 , excellent value , even better because as a resident in the Ramad I was entitled to 10% off. Next time I visit Birmingham I will definitely consider coming here again.

It was very convenient as we went for a drink in the Ramada hotel attached beforehand. The food was very good and the staff were chatty and corteous. There were some delays, but once you caught someone's eye then they came and cleared the tabel, or ordered more drinks.

Food is extremely good. Service is efficient. The staff are there if you need them but not in your face. Linen serviettes and table cloths give an upmarket feel. Free popadoms are a nice touch. Limited menu but everything is cooked and served to a high standard.

I visited the restaurant whilst on a business trip after seeking out an Indian restaurant on Google with good reviews for an evening meal. I'm not local to Solihull and google maps struggled to direct me to the location by foot, however when did find it, the welcome, service, food and wine were all excellent. The tables/chairs etc were also dressed very nicely.

The service by waitresses and management was just the perfect amount of attentive and it was refreshing to be waited on by staff who didn't look miserable or sour faced (as you so often find in a lot of places!) The courteousness and sweet nature of the staff really stood out and I think this goes a long way in whether customers are likely to return or not.

The cuisine was of a very high class standard - not only presentation-wise but the flavours or the dishes I had were like no other Indian meal (or takeaway!) I have tried before. For the food quality and service, I think the menu was well priced. I will definitely be recommending the restaurant to any fiends/family/colleagues who visit the area in future.
