“Special treat in Walsall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

I would definitely come here for a treat . The decor is lavish modern and sleek and we found the service very attentive. You would expect the unusual as soon as you walk in and there are flashes of inspiration. The beetroot pudding was one of the best I have tasted and the Earl Grey tea was fantastic to finish. Strangely I found my lamb kahari sauce rather bland and without any fresh flavours. Next time I'll stick to plain basmati rice as standard and try something else as a main.
When the bill came we were happy to pay extra for the service and the ambiance, but After Eight Mints are a bit of a come down for such a lovely restaurant!

“Second Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is our second visit to the five rivers restaurant, once with friends in November and Saturday 5th January as a couple, we were not disappointed. It was extremely busy with a full restaurant and a party upstairs, The staff are friendly, the service is good and the food is excellent. We have read some of the reviews on trip advisor and feel you must have been at a different restaurant. Some people even complained about the decor, it's modern and stylish although not in the best part of Walsall some people are so difficult to please. We will be back soon.

Julie & John Watson, Walsall

“Excellent surroundings and superb authentic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Having visited this restaurent twice it is a superb place to eat, the surroundings are modern contemporary and the staff are friendly and attentive. The menu is excellent and there is a good range of wines, spirits and champagne. On our last visit we took some friends who were visiting us from India and they were very impressed with the authenticity of the food and introduced us to some dishes that we had never tried before. They remarked that the restaurent was like many up market restaurents where they live in India. This is not the cafe/balti culture that Britain is known for and don't expect the usual British palette dishes. Overall good value and a supberb night out.
