Tipu Sultan in Birmingham ‘definitely recommended’

Check out the size of the building – it’s huge!
But if you think the outside is good, the inside is far more spectacular.
The decor was detailed and the ambience very warm and friendly.
Therefore it’s good for couples, families, friends and all.
These pair of mocktails were very refreshing, although you do have to mix them up a little bit.
The Pomegranate Spritzer and Mojito were done very smoothly. The great thing was that these weren’t all ice and no drink as you often find at some places.
These lamb chops were well marinated with loads of spices and flavour.
Probably very slightly overdone in the middle as they were a bit chewy.
These Seekh Kebabs were a bit mild in flavour. But they were still very tasty – fresh, juicy and well cooked with thick portions.
Even though the sweet, mixed salad was a good touch, it could have looked a bit more aesthetic.
The Sultani Murgh main, which would be a satisfying portion for two, was recommended by the waiter.
But for me, it was probably not as exciting as I was expecting, despite it being incredibly flavourful and authentic, with just the right amount of chilli.
The chicken was well cooked, and the curry sauce had a good consistency – not too thick and not too thin – and neither was it sitting in oil.
The accompanying naan was nice and big, fresh, extremely soft, ever so fluffy and perfectly buttered
The price was very reasonable too. It’s just a shame that they’re located so far from London (although there is a branch in Leicester).
The total for 3 portions of chops, 2 mocktails, 2 naans, 1 portion of seekh kebab, and 1 Sultan main came to just £40!
If your in Birmingham, therefore, this place is definitely recommended.
