In full appreciation of the wide variety of excellent restaurants in London, it would be great if we could begin a discussion that would generate a list of various restaurants in Birmingham.
Whenever I go out for a nice dinner research usually constitutes of web searches which leave a lot to question and certainly miss out on a number of restaurants.
I'm happy to list three of my favorites to begin with -
Belissimo's in Harborne is a neighborhood gem with consistent service and quality of food.
Bengal Cha in Stirchley is another neighborhood favorite - balti house - of friends.
And if you haven't tried Wagamama's in the Bull Ring it is well worth it with affordable and interesting dishes (if you ask, the green tea is free :)
I look forward to any additional postings.
