The Warehouse Cafe

54-57 Allison St, Birmingham B5 5TH, UK – 0121 633 0261

An incredible vegan cafe! I honestly didn't think vegan food could taste this good! Went for Sunday Lunch and it was delightful. Very quick and friendly table service, food arrived swiftly and are huge portions for the price. I very much recommend this place for a nice meal or raven just a coffee in the chilled ambience.

Great vegetarian cafe. Good menu with lots of options. I had the Buddha bowl, which was delicious. The fruit and veggies were all fresh and the various beans and grains went well together. Nice interior and nice staff.


55 Colmore Row Lower Ground Retail, Birmingham B3 2AA, UK – 0121 439 9236

Thank heavens they've softened the ambience a bit. Still underground, but less steel and mirrors, more drapery which means the echo and noise has abated considerably, which makes it a much more pleasant experience. This is THE place to have steak, it's fabulous in that regard. Also good for lunch and evenings alike. Being Argentinian, they cook things on the rarer side of normal for me, so my tip for diners is thus: where steak is concerned I normally go 'medium-rare', but here I go 'medium' and that is perfect, and I mean perfect. Vegetarians will find a very slim choice, so check the menu online first if you think this may sway your booking or enjoyment

My wife and I came here for our anniversary in August 2017. We felt like it was a magical evening and like the staff wanted us to truly enjoy our evening together. Just came here today for Father's Day and my father-in-law absolutely loved it! He's nearly converted, just need to get him to try the steak now!

Zizzi Birmingham Brindley Place

3 Brindley Pl, Birmingham B1 2JB, UK – 0121 792 3507

We liked this Zizzi, it was not heaving with the usual lunch crew and we weren't cramped with two young children and a buggy. The staff were attentive and assisted with the options for the deal we used, even coming back to us to clarify the details before we ordered. The food came out quickly and was a decent portion size for all of us. Not a ground breaking menu but tasty Italian pizza/pasta as expected in a chain restaurant. Worth a visit.

Good food served in a timely fashion by friendly staff. Slightly let down by the tables outside not being cleared and food underneath them.

Very nice food. The items I had seemed to have a North Indian influence and were lovely, but pricey. The welcome is not as warm as I would expect from this brand and price level. It seems very rushed and could be improved. For this price level, I would expect some level of conversation and not just order taking. As mentioned the food, drinks (including mocktails which my kids loved) and desserts were lovely, but be prepared for your wallet to take a hammering.

I’m a peoples person. I care and want them to care “have you been here before” is an important thing for me to hear. It opens up conversions and comfortability with the waiter. That was lacking, I never even got a name. They (two different people) came to take the order and left. The guy talked fast and mumbled THE FOOD. That being said food was fantastic and that is the reason for a 4 rating. It was flavorful and filling. More than enough to eat with a bowl of rice and curry

Celebrity Indian Restaurant

44 Broad St, Birmingham B1 2HP, UK – 0121 643 8969

Excellent! Upmarket joint so come dressed for the occasion. Great surroundings great service and great food! Felt I was on holiday with these guys made to feel special. Try it once and you'll be back again. Thank you guys for a memorable experience.

Convenient location directly above the Brasshouse pub on Broad St. Great venue, spacious and stylish design. Plenty of attentive staff who kept us hydrated with delicious beer whilst waiting for our table. Starters and mains all tasty and spices to order. The onion bhaji starter is some next level design! Overall excellent service and food. Recommended.

Went in the other day with a mate, was fairly quiet and didn't have much of an atmosphere. We were therefore seated immediately and told that it was closed off upstairs which is a shame, anyway we ordered the set meal dishes as advertised alongside some drinks. We didn't get a pickle tray because it's a rip off and should be free anyway, we paid for one last time we visited Manchester Riverside. There is nowhere near the atmosphere that there is at Manchester Riverside but the food tasted fairly similar. The service was good here so can't fault that in any way, lamb chops were average alongside the chicken starters we had. The chicken and lamb curries were fine but could be better, mocktails could do with being served in bigger glasses with more in them and the rice dishes were pretty average. We paid a fair enough price for the food but had to pay for parking which is an annoyance as well as massive rip off at the Euro Parks car park. If you can get parking on the side roads then it's cheaper. They should move to way bigger premises anyway with a large car park.

One of my favourites in Manchester, so I had to try it when I came here staying in the Hampton Inn next door. The same great menu, I love the pickle tray and the meat/lentil curries, not expensive at all in happy hour (5-7pm).

Best Reviewed Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

ASK Italian

56 New St, Birmingham B2 4DU, UK – 0121 792 3505

It's a chain Italian restaurant. You know what you're going to get - adequate, filling food which won't be the best taste experience you've ever had but will reliably rate a solid "okay". Service was pleasant but not very attentive - the garlic bread and a stack of plates were dropped on our table with alacrity before the waiter disappeared too quickly to speak to - and the table was visually clean but had crumbs on it to the touch. So, so-so.

Been to Ask Italian many times and enjoyed it many times. However this particular branch of Ask is very mediocre. Food is it's usual standard chain style Italian food however the service is what really let's this restaurant down. It's simply abysmal! It took, 10mins to order food, then took 10mins to receive drinks! And they didn't even apologize! Will go to Ask again...just not this particular one

Jamie's Italian Birmingham

Middle Mall, Bullring Shopping Centre, Birmingham B5 4BE, UK – 0121 270 3610

First time I visited here and I was very surprised. The staff were absolutely amazing and so accommodating to the needs of my 2 year old. Great fun pack for my son to keep him entertained. Right down to the staff suggesting they can bring out his dinner when our starters were ready. Food and drink was great. But the kids meal free all summer .... wow that is giving back, Thank you for an amazing dinner out. Definitely would be coming back and would recommend it to my friends and family.

Food was nice and amazing vegetarian options! You have your own menu with no meat! Amazing! Makes life alot easier rather than scanning for the 'V's. The reason I'm missing the fifth star as the food didn't wow me. It was nice but not five stars. I would definitely go again!

Really good quality of food! I'm a big fan of Mediterranean diet and I really liked the menu! The staff were very friendly and polite! Healthy choices as well! I will definitely go back! Overall 5 stars from me! :)

Our first visit here and we were absolutely delighted with the choice of menu. This was recommended by our family and we were not disappointed. Food was just amazing and staff pleasant.

Great on a Friday night straight from work. Good atmosphere. Can be quite quiet during the week.

Friendly service, great menu choices. Food was well presented and delicious. Sweet potato fries make a good alternative option.

All Bar One Brindleyplace

12G-13G, Water's Edge, Brindley Pl, Birmingham B1 2HL, UK – 0121 644 5861

My wife and I really like this bar and restaurant and have frequented the place many, many times over the years. The food is great, particularly the ever changing delicious tapas and sharing plate options. It's tasty food that trumps most of the local eateries. The service is always good and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, even when busy. The beer selection is good and there are plenty of decent wines on offer too. Well worth a visit.

Always busy here and generally a good atmosphere. Good beer selection and bar staff very friendly. Foods good too, eaten here many times and always manages to keep a high standard. The only drawback is the toilets which unfortunately are always a mess. A lot to do with public who can't aim which is why I believe they should have separate ladies and gents loos not unisex!!! However they could send the cleaner in more often. Sort that out and 5 stars...

All Bar One New Street Station

Unit 28B, New Street Station, Smallbrook Queensway, Birmingham B2 4QE, UK – 0121 643 3157

I’ve visited Birmingham on many occasions and since the refurbishment I’ve never eaten here. However I gave it a try. I can say the staff are very helpful. My food was emotional... I wanted to eat the main course again...... the food is reasonably priced and well presented. I’d definitely eat there again..... Salmon Caesar Salad is the one ☝🏽

A chilled evening every time, a nice balance between music and dining. Friendly staff. Much livelier later on (after eight) for an enjoyable night out.


Birmingham Chinese Restaurants

Chung Ying

16-18 Wrottesley St, Birmingham China Town, Birmingham B5 4RT, UK – 0121 622 5669

The place to go for very good Dim Sums. However if you are in a wheelchair this place is not really accessible yes they do have a metal ramp to put over the small flight of stairs inside the entrance but this creates a steep incline. They do not have a ramp for the front step which causes a issue of accessing the building especially when going for a meal as a group of friends in wheelchairs. Once inside the restaurant there is a wide open area perfect for a group of friends, family members or just going out for as a couple. It’s a great place to be with a great atmosphere. On a positive side they do have a disabled toilet but the layout and design of how the door opens to access the toilet causes anyone in a wheelchair to get stuck in the narrow corridor between the door and the wall. You will also need your Radar key to access this toilet. Using the ramp to exit the restaurant is very steep and dangerous as their is no staff around to help. Just be aware because you pick up speed as you come down the metal ramp then fly over the small step at the bottom and out onto a busy road. Not the greatest exit and entrance for a modern restaurant.

Food is always nice here. Is a dead basic restaurant though and if you are past 9 they always tell you it's all going to come out at once cause the chef is going home but then bring it dish by dish?! Service is authentic but they also give you cutlery regardless of asking if you can actually use chopsticks. Cost about £25 a head with a few of drinks and set menu

Chung Ying Central Bar & Restaurant

126 Colmore Row, Birmingham B3 3AP, UK – 0121 400 0888

I went in on a Saturday afternoon by accident. Only wanting a cold beer because of the hot weather. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and seated by the bar I ordered a pint of ice cold Tiger Beer and had a good look around to find a very nice cost little restaurant who do Thai food and cocktails/beers the statue of a terracotta soldier in the doorway and a happy smiling Buddha made it a lovely place to chill and drink a nice cold beer. Definitely coming back to try the food and the superb selection of cocktails

Food was excellent, and service was prompt. Not sure I like the tables with the high chairs. Noise level was ok. Slightly more modern environment than the Chung Ying in China town. Excellent when visited at the same time as the Old Joint Stock pub.

Red N Hot

35 Hurst St, Birmingham B5 4BJ, UK – 0121 666 6076

Warm, friendly place with delicious fried noodles. The staff was happy to tailor my dish to my tastes. It's not fancy, but that's not why you go here. Get some, and get it spicy!

Veeery spicy Sichuan cuisine but taste is out of this world. Prices are reasonable. I go every chance I got. Staff very friendly but speak little English, brush up on your Chinese!

Not Dogs

Moor St, Birmingham B5 4BS, UK – 0121 643 6826

Excellent place for vegetarians and vegans. Food is nice and tasty and served not that long after ordering. I have been here many times and the taste and quality are always consistently good. I visit here frequently when in Birmingham and recommend to all.

I came into this restaurant and for the first time in eating out I wasn't afraid to eat the meal. I knew as it is a vegietarian/vegan place no meat would come into contact with my food. The staff where really friendly. We joked about when eating out at other restaurants the choices are limited and normally the veggie option was salad. We felt welcome and the food was amazing. I had the plain Jane but opted out of the salad. Next time I go I'm going to be a bit more adventurous. So thank you all and I thoroughly enjoyed everything and I would recommend this place to vegietarian and vegans or those wanting a healthier meal.

The Veggie Chippy

228 New John St W, Birmingham B19 3UA, UK – 0121 448 7557

If you are vegan and are looking for ingenious vegan 'meat' dishes- love the flavours but hate to eat corpses? Then this is 100% the place for you! AND the prices are VERY reasonable. The vegan chicken and vegan fish are definitely highly recommended, the guys that run the place are very passionate about what they do, really friendly and have an original and brilliant approach to their business, can't recommend enough! (And no they are not paying me haha) I am vegan and very enthusiastic about small independent businesses that are passionate about vegan food, we need to support these guys! :) please visit if you are in the Birmingham area and hungry for some awesome vegan food

Amazing vegan food and incredibly good value. Purchase a £4.50 meal and struggled to finish it! Guys who own it are super friendly as well. Definitely the best takeaway in Birmingham!

Bacchus Bar

Burlington Arcade, New St, Birmingham B2 4JH, UK – 0121 632 5445

Convenient locations, loads of seats and a atmospheric decor make this a great pub. The selection of beers was good and varied. Only thing that stops it being five is really snobbery on my part because it's clearly decorated rather and I like my pubs a little more authentic.

Such a lovely place to sit in but the table service could be improved. I've given 3 stars due to the poor food. The price doesn't match the poor quality of food.

The Victoria

48 John Bright St, Birmingham B1 1BN, UK – 0121 633 9439

Old fashioned 'spit and sawdust pub. Great cool ales and cocktails. I didn't have much hope when I entered but the atmosphere and how busy it was really perked me up. Hidden little gem

A bit pricey. Toilets could be a bit better. Great drinks. Excellent staff!

The Trocadero

Temple St, Birmingham B2 5BG, UK – 0121 643 6107

An old building which retains its character. Clean and serves tasty food very well presented at reasonable price. First time visited - would again and have already recommended it to others!

Nice pub good choice of drinks and good food very friendly helpful staff.
