The place is reasonable. You find there aren't lots of younger people, mainly a little more mature. The drinks are expensive though and the dance floor is quite small. I can't imagine going here for food..

Visited on Saturday after booking on OpenTable, where there was a vegetarian menu. Arrived at restaurant to be told there isn't one! And no vegetarian options on the menu! Ended up just having a starter with chips, between a choice of two options. How can they not have any veg options in 2016? Having said that the waitresses were nice... More

Had this Living and Social voucher as a present which I have loved. It has been something I have looked forward to and lived up to my expectation. Nice way to spend afternoon after a morning shopping. The waitress greeted us as soon as we entered and got our table for us. She was willing to fit in with us... More

Brought this on living social! The afternoon tea was lovely, the service was great and the food good quality! Usually come to this venue in the evening but would definitely eat again in the day!

We can't say that we are regulars in the true sense of the word, as we live in Cheshire. However, over several years, Chameleon has been the first bar that we have always visited on arriving in Birmingham. We arrived on Saturday and as usual we went straight to what was one of our favourite bars, only to be totally... More

When we arrived there wasn't anyone on the front desk to welcome us. The chef found us a waitress who said our table wasn't ready and to get a drink at the bar. It took 10 mins at least to be served at the bar. People were actually ordering drinks and leaving because the service was that slow. However, 2... More

I had heard that the food was very good at this venue - unfortunately myself and my partner didn't get to find out because we walked out 3/4" an hour after placing our food order. There was nobody on the door checking people into the restaurant and we had to ask for our drinks order to be taken. This may... More

Nice place, nice hot chocolate and friendly bar staff. One guy winked at me and asked for my number.

Happened to go here after some shopping in Birmingham with two friends. The cocktails were lovely and it was 241, so even better. It was fairly busy for the time of day (6pm) however I felt its clientele was more 40+ so felt a bit of out place. Still a nice bar to pop into but only stayed for one.

Thank J O
