Don’t be surprised if you bump into an A-list celebrity or two, given that our global reputation has enticed many of them to visit Birmingham and see what all the fuss is about!

Terrific cocktails (especially the Bandit Queen and Darjeeling take on a G&T), superb food, efficient but unobtrusive service and some great modern jazz (Ornithology et al) at reasonable background listening levels. What's not to like! Would unhesitatingly recommend Lasan.

Extremely high quality food, everything was cooked perfectly and spiced to perfection.

Staff very friendly. Manager/owner was a little ‘serious’ when we entered.

It's been a while since my wife and I went to Lasan. Since then the restaurant has been completely redecorated with a lovely central bar and the overall light and ambience has been greatly enhanced. Also the cuisine has gone back towards traditional Indian dishes, but cooked to a very high standard indeed, rather than previously where Lasan focused more on high end 'fusion' cuisine. I think this has been a great move, as the food has real authenticity while also being absolutely delicious. We had the weekend special feast with a shoulder of lamb centerpiece and it was absolutely phenomenal. The staff are also really friendly and welcoming, and recognised us after quite a long time. There's always a danger in a city like Birmingham that going back to more traditional menu could be risky given how much competition there is in the city from other restaurants - however the food is so good (better than any other place in the city in my opinion), that the risk should pay off. We will for sure be going back again very soon!

Sadly, the food was so poor, we left having only eaten our starters. Both our main dishes were bland, under seasoned and uninspiring. Very disappointed. Will not return.

The food and service and staff was good some of the customers upset me and also the manager upset me. It is a shame because it was going well. The manager could have done something instead of upsetting me and being so arrogant. So sad. I love the restaurant and food and but I am tired of the hostility sort it out and sort people out. You made me very upset when I was very happy for one day in my life. There is enough hatred in this world without all of you hating and picking on me. Disappointed and ashamed of being Asian and being abused by the manager and other customers. Sort it out. If you and the customer had been nice I would have given you a great positive feedback as I am a nice person but you and your customers did not care and made my life hell. One day I wanted to be happy. You have lost a regular customers for your hatred and arrogance.

Interesting restaurant and definitely a high end indian vibe with good service. I think the food is interesting but doesn't always work and the combinations are definitely 'different', not your normal indian so worth trying if you want to experience something a bit different.

Excellent meal on Christmas eve. Slightly under flavoured Korma was the only minor negative. Other than that, the whole experience of food, service and atmosphere were excellent. Pricing makes it a special occasion only place, but will definitely go again.

Best Indian Food
We had lunch at Lasan to celebrate our sons graduation. The food was amazing (especially the salmon and lamb cutlets in the sharing starter). The service was attentive but not intrusive and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. This was Indian fine dining at its best.

We had a late lunch and there was only one other table occupied which detracted from the atmosphere somewhat. Food and service were excellent, and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone on this basis. I guess location is such that lunchtime is not going to be a busy time even on a Friday. I bet the place is completely different in the evening ! Perhaps a lunchtime set menu might be a good attraction ?

The food was superb, some of the best Indian food I've ever had! As was the service, very attentive but not intrusive!

What let it down, although it certainly didn't ruin our night, was the lack of a dress code, even a basic one! As it was our anniversary, we had made an effort to dress up, believing that it was a contemporary restaurant. Sadly one of the other tables deemed Flip flops, shorts & t-shirts suitable! As i said it didn't ruin our night in the slightest but its just something that will be remembered!

Every time I am in Birmingham I visit this extraordinary Indian restaurant. It’s really the best Indian food in Europe! The service is top and I love the absence of any kind of cooler local atmosphere. I’ll be back.

Good place. Good service, attentive staff. Nice menu. Different.
Food was nice - but nothing exceptional.
Could do with a few more beer types.
Reminded me of being in Delhi.
