Birmingham is the original home of the Balti. From award-winning city centre restaurants to authentic family-run establishments in the Balti Triangle, no visit to Birmingham is complete without sampling the delicious flavours for yourself.
The unmissable Balti Triangle is the centre of Asian cuisine, fabric and fashion. Bringing together the Sparkbrook, Balsall Heath and Moseley areas of the city, you're never more than a few feet from a treat. In the Balti Triangle, you will also find plenty of fantastic restaurants, a veritable treasure-trove of Asian jewellers, traditional dress-makers and delicious sweet shops.
The word ‘balti’ actually refers to the bowl that the dish is served and is thought to originate from the Urdu word balty, meaning ‘bucket’. Modern-day Balti dishes are a lot smaller than buckets though! Balti houses began appearing in Birmingham in the 1970s, and have proved popular ever since. Few local restaurants are licensed, but you’re more than welcome to bring your own wine or beer.
Birmingham is the curry capital of the UK, with a better selection of Asian and Indian restaurants in Birmingham than anywhere else in the country. Whether you’re in the city centre or heading out to the legendry Triangle itself, there are plenty of places to spice up an evening.
