Time Out says
Stylish, well-constructed Indian cuisine that has garnered plenty of publicity – and with good reason
Possibly Birmingham’s best-known Indian restaurant, Lasan has ridden a wave of publicity ever since it was featured on Gordon Ramsay’s ‘The F Word’ in 2010, and is one of the showpieces of the city’s rich Indian food tradition.
Lasan is located among the quaint Victorian buildings of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, backing onto the leafy St Paul’s Square, making it a great little spot for bar hopping and restaurant dining.
The decor is a fusion of modern and traditional; fancy mirrors and ornaments – including a large wooden sitar – adorn the space.
Fine dining is the guiding principle at Lasan, and every dish is carefully constructed and beautifully presented. The ingredients also reveal a commitment to using high-quality British produce to create exquisite Indian platters. Thus, you’ll find real gems such as the mouthwatering soft shell Devonshire crab in Kashmiri chilli batter (£12.95), and the excellent pan-fried fillet of Cornish mackerel with Keralan moilee sauce (£19.95).
The marriage of Indian flavours with fresh homegrown produce is an absolute winner for Lasan.
