It is with collective sadness that balti aficionados note the closure of Saleem’s. Known for it’s balti at the hotter end of the spectrum, fiery dips and some mean kebabs, this baltihouse was well loved. Its signature framed picture of their family’s Pakistani wrestling ‘tag team’ will also live long in the memory. With its neighbours, Imran, having a full makeover, it’s likely trade suffered to the extent that it was no longer viable.
Thank you Saleem Waheed for the years of great service you gave to the Balti Triangle and, of course, Birmingham’s famous dish.
