The best Curry house in Birmingham by far! Went for a big group meal with about 10-15 people and the service and food was brilliant, Would recommend a table Naan if you are feeling hungry! A real Authentic curry experience.

This is an authentic Pakistani restaurant. The food taste was excellent and the service was impressive. We had the Chicken Potohari and the mango lassi, could not recommend it enough.

I ate at Adil's many times between the mid 70s and 90s but this was the first time back since then. Then it was an unpretentious cafe with formica tables and Lino on the floor, catering originally for Asian men and families. It served fantastic...More

While travelling to Birmingham, I decided I had to try food in the curry mile. I came across Adil's from a quick search and was glad I had tried here. As it was Ramzan, they had an offer of food for 4 for £40 which...More

When we first visited Adil's way back in 1978 there were no table cloths, knives and forks, rice, limited starters and the choice of balti was meat or chicken with naan. And it cost about £2.50. Although the cost has gone up a little the...More

We used to visit Adil's back in the 90's and I have very fond memories of this place. Decor has changed and it now has a more modern feel, but make no mistake, the Balti's are still superb! Kids can also choose a half portion...More

Established in 1977 it was at these very premises that the Balti method of cooking was introduced to Britain. We take great pride in this fact and our aim is to always serve the highest quality Authentic Balti Cuisine. The Authentic Balti served here at Adil have been created with an exotic collection of herbs and spices distinctively blended in the traditional ways of Northern Kashmir. Our menu has also been modified to suit the different tastes of our ever increasing clientele, from Kurma for those who prefer a mild dish to the Masala for the more experienced Balti eaters. For the daring diner, there is the Vindaloo and vegetarians will also find plenty to tempt them. Adil continues to maintain its unique, original style of cooking with a reliability that encourages our clients to return regulary. After all, Original is the best. Adil was the first restaurant to bring Balti cuisine to Britain and no-one could have missed the subsequent popularity of this exciting style of cooking. Now 37 years later, we are still going strong and the management and staff of Adil would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their loyal support as we look forward to the future.
