“Fantastic Food and Service”

This has to be my favourite restaurant.

The food is sensational made with top quality fresh ingredients. The staff are friendly and the service is fantastic. The restaurant lunch menu is excellent value.

The cocktails are lovely and presented well but can be a little pricey depending on which ones you choose.

Overall I cannot recommend this place enough and celebrate many of our family and friend’s birthdays’ here.

We are unique among Birmingham restaurants in that we are the only fine dining restaurant in the city which serves Malaysian cuisine.  Nestled by the edge of the waterfront, we also enjoy some of the best views.  However, there are five main areas we focus on to ensure that we stay ranked as one of the best Birmingham restaurants.  These are:

1. Menu- Our menu contains over 100 dishes which reflect the diversity of the beautiful and exquisite cuisine available from Thailand, China and Malaysia.

2. Service- Our staff have been hand picked for their obsession to customer service.  You are guaranteed a friendly welcome and the type of discrete service which people associate with The Orient.

3. Ambiance- We work hard to ensure you have the perfect atmosphere for your dining experience. You’ll find our venue friendly and welcoming and the perfect place to relax of an evening or discuss business over lunch.

4. Drinks menu- We have a diverse range of wines, spirits, cocktails and beers which make the perfect accompaniment to your meal.  All of our cocktails are made with freshly prepared ingredients by our experienced mixologists to ensure you get the perfect drink. These elements have earned us the reputation of being one of the best Birmingham bars.
