Deolali reviews

By Tracey S.

My partner and I visited Deolali on Wednesday evening and were extremely impressed with the menu, which was delicious. Service and food were both to a very high standard and presentation of the dishes was exceptional. We would certainly recommend Deolali - the quality of every aspect is high and the unusual and stylish surroundings far superior to most Indian restaurants.

One star, for the environment only.I was having dinner with my partner and a friend of ours.

We arrived at around 7:30pm and at 9:15pm we still had not been served the main course (which we had ordered 1h30m ago and we had finished with the starters 50min ago!).

When I complained they said they are coming in a couple of minutes. 20m after this I asked the waiter to cancel our order and let us have the bill for the drinks and starters. He looked terrified and said they are literaly on their way.....

We gave them another 5min during which the main course finally arrived.While we were eating a waiter came and pointing at the half full water jar asked if we still need it (!).

When we said yes he just left, not even looking at the empty beer bottles right next to it; these had been left there empty ever since the starters were saved and nobody bothered to remove them, not even when they brought us the main course!!!).

So, definitely not returning to this place and I would not recommend it for anyone.

If you like something a little different, you'll enjoy a visit to this up-market modern Indian restaurant. Bog-standard balti this ain't.

The Venue
Named after the Indian town of Deolali (which apparently gave us the expression going Doolally) this stylish restaurant is situated next to the Bulls Head in the increasingly fashionable Moseley Village. It's located in the former Architectural Antiques building and it's worth a visit just to view this highly impressive venue. Diners enter the arched entrance and climb stairs up to the Champagne Bar which leads to the restaurant itself, set on two levels.

This is certainly not your traditional Indian decor. The stripped wooden floors, exposed timber and brickwork and scrubbed oak tables are all set in subtle lighting creating a comfortable, relaxed ambience. Huge mirrors, cleverly placed, make the restaurant seem much bigger than it is.

The People
Deolali is always buzzing on a Friday and Saturday evening and you'll need to book well in advance to secure a table. The atmosphere is lively, although not too noisy. Diners will be met at the bar with a friendly, welcoming greeting - usually by one of the owners. Staff are attentive and happy to help with food or wine choices and with three pages of appetizers and starters you may need them.

The Food
The choice of dishes is overwhelming. There's a huge assortment of starters from spicy lamb koftas to light, crispy pakoras. They are all served with a fresh rocket salad. The king prawns are also highly recommended. The main menu includes all the usual favourites - tandooris, tikka masala, jalfrezis etc. together with a selection of house specialities. These include Deolali Monk Fish, Tandoori Trout and ghustabba which is lamb meatballs with turmeric and garam masala in a hot, sweet and spicy tomato sauce.

A variety of rice, naans and dips make it almost impossible to make your mind up. If you leave any room for a dessert try the cardamom infused creme brulee which is deliciously different. Prices for starters are around £4 and mains are around £8 to £10.

The Drink
You can choose from an extensive wine list and a variety of Champagnes. The Brahma beer is very refreshing with a hot, spicy dish but jugs of iced water are also on hand if needed.

The Final Word
For top quality Indian cuisine served in stylish unique surroundings pay a visit to Deolali and prepare to be delighted.
