Indian
Since its launch in 2002, Lasan has firmlyestablished itself as the finest Indian restaurant in the UK, if not the world, courtesy of its numerous awards and international recognition. From national curry awards to facile victories in Gordon Ramsay’s ‘F Word – Best Local restaurant’ on Channel 4’ and the BBC’s ‘Great British Menu’, not to mention our inclusion in The Sunday Times top 100 UK restaurants.

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!

Our favourite Indian restaurant in the country. We visit twice a year when we attend exhibition in NEC.
Food & service excellent. Ambience lovely but could use some fabrics or soft furnishings to reduce tinny echoes which can get ear piercing when large groups are in.

Great welcome, outstanding food (as always) and a special mention for what is some of the best service that I (consistently) receive in a Birmingham (or anywhere else for that matter) restaurant. Intimate knowledge of each dish by our server (only sorry I didn’t catch her name), coupled with a delivery that balanced professionalism and good humour is rare/unexpected. It all made for a fabulous meal/experience. Well done Lasan!

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.

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.
