Outside the Triangle

The search for genuine baltihouses outside the Balti Triangle goes on and my latest mission took me to Shabar on the Coventry Road, Sheldon, just a stone’s throw from the airport. 

Although it was a Friday night it was good to see it buzzing with hardly a table to spare in what was a large restaurant.

A range of dips and several poppadoms kicked things off and starters were chicken tikka, lamb tikka and onion bhaji between us. All were were well presented, freshly cooked and tasty.

Mains included balti chicken and mushroom , a spicy balti chicken pathia and by special request (not normally on the menu) a balti saag paneer … all accompanied by two excellent fluffy, and garlicky naans.  Baltis were served up in the traditional  blackened bowls and portions were ample. Service was efficient and friendly throughout.

All round an excellent ‘Balti experience’ although BYO is not allowed as the restaurant is licensed.
