I love curry! And for me one of the best things about living in Birmingham is the vast array of amazing Indian restaurants on my doorstep.
My absolute favourite is Raja Monkey, which in my option is the best Indian restaurants in Birmingham, the concept is Indian street food and its certainly not your average Indian restaurant.
It’s not a vegetarian restaurant but there are lots of veggie options and their amazing Thali’s can be vegan on request. The atmosphere is laid back and informal and there are always lots of regulars (I think we are now definitely regulars as a ‘bottle of chardonnay’ appears without us actually ordering it!)
Raja Monkey’s Dosa’s are amazing! I have been searching good Dosa’s for years (my love for the Dosa started when I spent 3 months in southern India and had Masala Dosa’s for breakfast everyday).
However it’s really all about their Thali’s which are truly delicious. Each little pot of food is amazing and uniquely and distinctly flavoured.
I love this dahl, it’s as close as I’ve ever got to replicating an authentic restaurant taste, its great with chickpea curry and buckwheat flatbreads.
Ive used the easiest and fastest lentil to cook – red split lentils, with creamy coconut – absolutely delicious. Then topped with fresh mint and cucumber dip and a fresh salad. Just perfect.
