Birmingham’s oldest Pakistani restaurant is an unassuming spot which looks like it hasn’t had a refit since it opened fifty-years ago, but there are real reasons to be here. We suggest that you ignore the majority of the menu underneath the glass on the tables and look to two traditional dishes. First, the slow cooked lamb stew which is the Nihari, and secondly the savoury porridge with slow cooked lamb that is Haleem is perfectly acceptable for dinner or breakfast. It’s the latter that you’ll find the taxi drivers of the city eating at sunrise after a night working, and for good reason. Sheereen Kadah is essential Birmingham visiting.
