Go here as regularly as I can. Has been consistently good for many years. Very friendly great staff. Take aways are excellent as are the in house meals. Tarka Dhal is exceptional!

I have visited here many times and have not been disappointed, food and service excellent. Very warm welcome from staff and very attentive cannot fault any of our evening. Great that you take your own drinks, very reasonable price for food. This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants.

Visited here for a birthday and was hoping for good things. I like the bring your own booze concept so hoped the focus would be fully on high quality food I would say it was good, but not amazing quality. Certainly had a lot lot worse. Value was ok too it seemed after splitting our bill Main issue was service.... More

I went with my daughter to Piquant's on a very cold night at about 6'ish, so very early, and the restaurant was understandably quiet. The room was lovely and warm and, as another reviewer mentioned, there was some unusual music (for an Asian restaurant) being played quietly in the background. This time it was some beautiful classical pieces. But onto... More

Very nice food, atmosphere (and some quite bizarre but nevertheless interesting music including the original theme from Magnificent Severn). The chicken chilli starter is fantastic as is the sheesh kebab starter, but there are many unusual dishes on the menu. Same with the mains- some house specialities which should be tried. Definitely not to be missed and a very reasonable... More

Taking friends to your favourite restaurant can be risky! Delighted to say that a visit to Piquant in Moseley was excellent as always. Great assortment of food, attentive service and timings just right despite being a Saturday night and every table booked. Food looks fresh, tastes fresh and chef Abdul does a great job. Highly recommended, be back soon.

We stumbled across this restaurant on a night out. The waiter was helpful, not pushy. The food was very tasty and spicy. We only had one grumble, the portion of rice was very small. We really enjoyed our meal and will return with our own bottle of wine.

I chose to eat at Piquant on the basis of recent good reviews but I won't be repeating the experience - despite the food being rather good. Started off badly when asked 3 times if we wanted poppadums (twice by the same waiter) - and despite saying yes on all occasions they didn't materialise. Asked if we wanted a drink... More

We had 5pm take-away from Piquant, and the biggest compliment we could pay them is that the take-away didn't look like a take-away! The food was very well-presented, and there was no grease/fat on the top. The chili/garlic King Prawns were outstanding, as was the Prawn masala. Both meals has LOADS of chili! At £33 it was slightly above average... More

This was the third time of visiting Piquant over 4 years (irregular visits to a friend in Moseley, not becasue of the food!) and it's still excellent. Staff are exceptionally friendly and the menu is extensive - definitely something for everyone. I had a spinach dominated dish but could still taste all the spices that had been used. Will definitely... More
