had a family birthday lunch at this restaurant.food was reasonable.service was also quite good.because we used the prebooking voucher,we got 25% off the price of the food.this was very good but the price of our drinks push the final bill up.without telling you,they add a 10%service charge automatically.this is optional but you are not aware of it without studying the final bill.if you dont wish to pay it you have to endure te embarassment of asking to have it removed.the car parking is a problem as you have to use the shoppers car park at the rear of the shopping parade.

I rarely write bad reviews, I am by no means a fussy eater so it is difficult to come away from a restaurant feeling displeased...

However my visit to Jimmy Spices was not the most enjoyable. The food is quite good, lots of choice, you can even choose to have something freshly cooked for you, there really is something for everyone.
The chef's are really quick to top things up, and there really is plenty of food to go around.

The restaurant itself is quite nice, and clean, but just lacks in atmosphere, its not somewhere i would go for a special occasion.

Me and my partner were very poorly after eating here, I couldn't tell you whether it was the restaurants hygiene standards or the hygiene of other customers fingering and breathing over the food (as with all buffet places)

We would not be returning here, or to any other buffet places for that matter...put me right off.

The choice of dishes is extraordinary. There truly is something for everyone. I often only have starters after starters, such is the superb choice. Many dishes are cooked to order, especially the Chinese ones, so you know they are FRESH! There is a superb atmosphere which I believe is created by an imaginative layout and very friendly staff. I would heartily recommend this Jimmy Spices to anyone who loves quality food at a sensible price. I wish my diminishing appetite would allow me to eat more!

Recently visited Jimmy Spices in Sutton Coldfield for lunch. There was an incredible amount of choice of food and the staff were all very helpful. The food was delicious and very good value. The restaurant is very spacious and everyone in my party enjoyed their meal.

part of a chain of restaurants ,at Jimmy spices you choose your raw ingredients and the chefs cook it while you watch them.There is a choice of Chinese, Indian, Thai and Italian as well as a good range of tempting desserts. Prices vary according to the day of the week and also there is a before 7pm tarif and after 7pm. Note you must vacate your table before 7pm to get the cheaper price. There is a different menu at lunch time and a special menu (and price increase) in december.You can buy their diners card which then gives you 10% discount each time you eat there.One word of warning.... if they send you a voucher for a 25% discount, they include a hefty tip to your bill, though in fairness you still save a bit. The drinks were over-priced so check before ordering!!
