Being in the centre of Birmingham around 7.15 on a wet Saturday evening myself and 3 friends were looking round for a restaurant which could cater for our "Party" as one guest was Vegetarian and the other a Vegan. We stumbled upon the above venue which on first appearances looks like a cafe. We went in and there were a... More

Love this place, the food is great, very reasonably priced and delicious. It's cafe style rather than restaurant style and the service is a bit haphazard. This evening two of us got our fab starters on time, the third waited, and waited and waited....and it wasn't easy to catch the eye of a member of the staff. When we did,... More

Food came quickly and was a huge bowl full of noodles, loads of chicken, veg etc. Great taste from... More

Quickly meal during a work break with a friend. Very nice food, a lot of vegetarian choices. Vegetarian chicken noodles very nice. I'll suggest this restaurant for vegetarians.

We came to celebrate my daughters birthday. We come here often and get served by Andrew who is fantastic. Very polite and has always got our order right. The food comes out very hot and quick, the taste is amazing as we are all vegetarians. To make it a little better in experience would be to have plates out ready... More

We've decided to have our Christmas Meal here to accommodate everyone's dietary/cultural taste. Most of us have been to Cafe Soya over the years, so we're confident we'd all enjoy our festive meal. I haven't been back here for almost a year, so when my order arrived, I noticed the portions have considerably gone smaller but the quality of the... More

This place is a hidden gem for vegetarians. It doesn't look like the greatest place to eat, in fact it looks just like a shabby cafe. The staff are not great and don't provide the best service. But the food...amazing!!! Chilli and garlic mock lamb dish. Brilliant
