This was an enjoyable visit to the Spice Merchant, one of Kings Heath’s only two genuine balti houses. Early signs were good with prompt service in very comfortable surroundings. My aubergine pakora was fresh and tasty with just the right amount of batter. My main was a Balti Chicken with chunks of tender chicken languishing in a rich sauce. This included some fresh ginger which definitely gave it a real zing. Overall a very enjoyable meal and incidentally the poppadoms were crispy and the naan bread was fresh and doughy … two things that often let a typical Balti House down.
