About The Dilshad

The Dilshad makes some serious claims: they serve the UK’s hottest curry – “The Inferno”, which they’ll give you for free if you can finish it – as well as being counted among the finest Indian restaurants in the West Midlands, which is one of the most competitive curry markets in the country. If you make the journey out to Cannock Road in Chadsmoor in Cannock, you’ll be assaulted by flavours from all over the subcontinent, with a particular emphasis on North Indian and Bangladeshi dishes. House specialties include lamb cooked with shatkora, the Bangla citrus fruit that goes superbly with chilies, pureed chicken liver curry with bhuna spice and served on fried bread and hash lajawab, duck with green chilli, garlic and ginger. Book a table at The Dilshad for one of the best Indian meals in the West Midlands.

We had a fantastic evening at The Dilshad on Sunday 28 August 2016 celebrating our wedding anniversary and my Mother-in-law's birthday. We hadn't been since the restaurant has been extended and were not disappointed. The staff were very attentive, helpful, friendly and fun! The food was delicious and it's an excellent licensed establishment serving a good selection of wine and beer. We shall definitely be returning.

The Dilshad restaurant is very well appointed with plenty of space between tables. The food was of a high standard with ample portions. The menu offers a wide choice including the traditional dishes and fusion dishes for the more adventurous diner.

We were recommended by friends and went for my Husband birthday last night ! Unfortunately the whole experience was spoilt be having to listen to a crying screaming child the whole time we were there !! The lamb chops we had were delicious, unfortunately we did not finish our main course as we could not wait to get out of the restaurant therefore a review on that main course would not be a true review The staff were friendly and helpful but we felt they could have done something with regards to approaching the parents of the child The child was crying when we arrived and throughout our meal and made us feel uncomfortable Not a great experience overall

Superb experience as always. Courteous and friendly with unbeatable food. Nothing is too much trouble and they are always happy to create a vegetarian dish to suit. Worth the 30 mile round trip!!
