Asha’s is part of a multinational chain of over a dozen restaurants owned by a Bollywood singer. The place is large and lavishly decorated and the food was quite good, with some particularly nice tandoori prawns,

Chung Ying is the oldest Chinese restaurant in Birmingham, a vast cavernous pace with a huge menu and quite capable cooking. Service was friendly and the price was very fair, a real steal when compared with London.

Simpsons (whose dining room is pictured) is a Michelin-starred restaurant in a rather grand old building, the menu being quite appealing. The food was good and there was a quite modest corkage charge policy. For me, the best dish was an unusual beetroot dish with sorrel and wasabi.
