We go here a few times a year as we've got an 8, 14 and 17 year old so it's hard to please them all! Particularly the evening meal is fantastic, so much choice and everyone comes away with a smile on their face!

If you live or work in Birmingham you May find yourself in or near the Bullring centre if you do you must visit "Big Wok". This place is probably the best buffet style Chinese eatery in the city. We went on a Saturday lunchtime at 12:00 & people were queuing outside but we got a seat quickly. The food is... More

I'm at Big Wok now for lunch. It's been about 8 years since I last came and it was great, came back about 3 times then. My how things have changed. The food is very poor quality and lacking in authentic flavour. My son couldn't eat the noodles. The fried chicken wings are ok. I had some ice cream as... More

It had been a while since I've been to this restaurant, (2007 I think) I mixed my meal up a little with some chicken, beef, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, rice and noodles. Exellent, wasn't to spicy either, bit of a shame I love spicy food on occasion. The chocolate fountain didn't look very nice, so I had some of the strawberry... More

We called in here as we had used the place many times. The food was all ok but the place has undergone a refurb and seemed a little dark and dingy. The teppanyaki was great but we were told that it was finishing at 9:45, well before the 11pm close. Nothing was exceptional but the price is quite high so... More

This was a reasonable Sunday lunch. In the China town area of the city. Until 5pm it is £7:49 each which is very well priced. It increases after but not sure how much. There is plenty of choice on the menu. We were too full to try it all so will be going back to try out other dishes. The... More

This restaurant is an all u can eat buffet which offers a very wide range to choose from. It is very good quality at reasonable prices. The establishment is centrally located within China Town close by to the Hippodrome theatre. The staff are pleasant & friendly. Very good for families.

Came here for a meal, and what a lovely surprise it was, not only am I vegan which they catered for, it was all on the buffet, so we got to try most of the food. The staff were very polite and helpful.
