So Co lih me ul an ld d in se in e g w us ee du k ri Oc ng t1 -9 To put it simply, the Delhi in Solihull is a class above other local Indian restaurants. It’s a professional and welcoming place where the excellent service lasts from the minute you step in to the moment you step out. With the kitchen open to the entrance hall, customers can see the chefs preparing dishes and inhale the tantalising aroma of southern Indian spices on which much of the menu is based. The restaurant’s seating is upstairs, an intimate but sophisticated space with plenty of windows that makes dining at sunset a rather splendid experience. The Delhi prides itself on its creative reinterpretations of the staples of Indian cuisine. Notably, their popadoms come with six accompaniments including the Delhi’s
treasured pickled garlic and their tamerin sauce. Their passion to use fresh ingredients means that the fish dishes are extremely popular. The pan-fried sea bass is a richly flavoured, crisp starter whilst the Calcutta fish supreme makes for a creamy and delicately herbed main course. The curry sauces are rich but not too heavy and spiced to the heat of your choosing. At the Delhi you certainly get what you pay for. Starters from around £3 and the average main course at around £10 make it an affordable place for a special occasion. It’s also worth booking in advance as seating is limited and fills up fast on popular nights.
Two starters, two main courses, two breads or rice, two glasses of house wine or Cobra beer,all for £20. To reserve a table call 0121 705 1020.
