New Oxford House, 16 Waterloo St, Birmingham B2 5UG, UK – 0121 643 3745
Went with a friend for dinner. We pretty much ordered everything: tasting menu, additional courses, and two selections of wine pairing. Food was great of course, and the waiter has sufficient knowledge for the wine which was undoubtedly a pleasant experience. However I probably expected more creativity in the dishes. Being a foodie who tend to try nice and different cuisines globally, I personally think there was a lack of wow factor. It was definitely worth trying but I don’t feel the urge to go back, especially with the price I paid.
I was fortunate enough to be taken here for my birthday for the tasting menu. It was simply great. Although I felt the drinks were quite expensive, perhaps this is normal for other Michelin star restaurants, we are definitely hoping to return. The taster menu was so much more than what we expected, in terms for flavours and experiences. We still tell every one about Adam's whenever we mention amazing food. The staff were helpful without being intrusive, very attentive. Thanks to all at Adams for making our visit so special.

It is a mid point stop from London toward Manchester. Would be good to find a Chinese restaurant for dim sum lunch. Very packed, but we managed to find a place. Parking is convenient, right outside the restaurant has plenty of room. Dim sum is of standard, we didn't order main courses. The price is good although we plan to spend more.
This is definitely one of the best Chinese Birmingham. I saw a good friend at this restaurant which was a nice coincidence. He said that it was very nice as well saying that the other prawn and crab meat dumplings was a speciality and a must try. My favourite was the soup dumplings and the chicken feet. The exterior of the restaurant was really nice and the interior was well furnished. The staff were friendly and the toilets are decent. Overall the restaurant was really nice and I would return again. Highly recommend it.
Bullring Shopping Centre, Bullring, Birmingham B5 4BE, UK – 0121 643 7125
A nice place to grab lunch. The main reason I went in was the decor, and it always looks popular. Saturdays there's always a queue outside. The food is good and the staff helpful. However, the staff are usually quite busy because of the number of customers. I intend to go back and explore the menu further. I wouldn't queue though. Unless you can sit outside and the weather is nice, its not worth it. I struggle to understand the popularity to be honest. Its nice, but not a twenty-deep queue nice. There are better places in Birmingham.
Bill's is Brill. Been to both the Glasgow and this Birmingham branch now and both are fantastic. Very professional, fast and friendly staff. Food to die for and reasonably priced. Great relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for a brunch before hitting the shops after a lie in.
