Colbeh Persian Kitchen & Bar

One of the world’s most ancient and refined styles of cooking is the traditional home cooking of Iran. Fragrant rice, slow cooked stew, perfectly seasoned halal meats, fresh herbs and vegetables are just the beginning of a journey through the Persian flavours.

Every detail of the restaurant is all handpicked by the family to represent it’s name, Colbeh (کلبه), which means ‘cottage’ in the Persian language of Farsi. From the kahgel spread walls to the intricately detailed embroidery on the handmade decorations, even down to each of the individual dishes to represent different regions of the country. The family run business strives to bring the perfection of traditional homemade recipes of Iran. Exploding with the main distinctive flavours of Saffron, Tumeric and Parsley, to our guests in the comfort and warmth of a complete replica of a classic Persian cottage.

Busy place , tasty food, over generous portions, lots more to explore on the menu, on the down side the king prawns had a bit too much tamarind for mine and my friends palate, but that won’t put us off visiting again!

I absolutely loveeeeeee this place. Amazing food! Lovely cosy little place and the staff are very friendly! I have already been there 5 times in the last 3 months and everytime take a different friend with me. The colbeh special is the one to have as you get a bit of everything and the chicken and meat is well cooked! My all time favourite restaurant!

Ambience was good and we were well looked after . Unfortunately one of our group ( of 4) had a poor dish - lamb was tough and only four pieces of meet in a stew style dish. Otherwise fine

Went to Colbeh for an evening meal on a Saturday night. We were late due to a number of reasons and had to call the restaurant to inform them. They were very friendly and understanding and we're happy to arrange our table for later. The service was friendly and welcoming and the food was very tasty. We went for the chicken and saffron rice and lamb shank, both of which were good choices. Would recommend coming here and will be paying another visit next time we are in Birmingham.

Excellent. Would recommend to anyone. Food was authentic and service good.

We shared mixed grill platter and there was more than enough for us both. Starter of humous was flavourful.

We both had a couple of drinks too and the bill was £50. Great value for money.
