Smack in the middle of 'Chinatown' it makes a change to the monosodiumglutanate they serve up. An obvious spot for pre-theatre drinks & bites being just over the courtyard from The Hippodrome Theatre. Burger-type fayre served all day. The bacon/brie & onion marmalade bagel was tasty.

Visited 28 th Feb 2015 3rd visit, never been that great but passable, staff at best poor if not nonchalant to the customers. Waited one and a half hours for a burger and a pasta dish, when asked why so long the manager said its not when you order its what you order! Does this man think we are all... More

On Saturday 14 March 2015, My husband and I and our friend dined here before going to the Birmingham Hippodrome. We arrived and managed to get the last available table. Sadly, since our last visit, it has changed back to self- service, where you have to order at the bar. A little queue, but we explained that we were theatre... More

our party of 4 went for a meal at mid- day, we have eaten there many times before, and enjoyed it. Today was no different, lovely food, and friendly staff. we had to wait awhile, but as we had plenty of time before going to the Hippodrome, it was not a problem. We were sorry that it is no longer... More

Our usual pre theatre venue spoiled by a leary football ⚽ crowd and big screen was just nasty spoiled my otherwise lovely sirloin steak, hope was worth the people turning round in droves.

Went on a Sunday afternoon when there was an event on but not overly busy still. Ordered a small amount of food which took ages to come but was lovely. Staff slow doing coffee and other drinks and are just disorganised! Go, if you don't mind waiting either at your table or standing at the bar waiting to be served.

We were met by a friendly member of staff who sat us down and explained to us that we place our orders in the bar. We placed our order and the drinks arrived promptly followed by the food. The...

Shocking service, there organisation is terrible, the table we booked for our party was given away acidentally so we were told to pull some tables together, after they had our party standing around in the middle of the restraunt for 10 minuets!, adding insult to injury the food took nearly 1 hour to arrive and it was not fit for...
