Review on Shimla Pinks
The flagship of the Shimla Pinks chain of up-market Indians is right at the heart of Birmingham's nightlife. The name – apparently – refers to aspirational Indian youngbloods, and the place itself is certainly upwardly mobile in its attitude and style.
Don't expect flock wallpaper here: instead the décor is all bright colours and contemporary flourishes. The menu also breaks the mould and moves quickly from chicken tikka and rogan josh into more obscure regional territory. Koh-e-avadh is a Muglai dish of lamb in a velvety ginger-laced onion sauce flavoured with sunflower seeds and kewda water, while subzee milloni is a dish of deliocately spiced vegetables in a robust spinach sauce.
Banquets (for two or more people) make a great introduction to the Shimla Pinks experience, if you don't fancy experimenting.
