Description: Metro Bar and Grill opened in 1997 on Cornwall Street and became an instant hit with the local business community as well as ladies that lunch. Over the years we have become an institution; one of the main reasons Metro acquired by Brandasia Group, a sister restaurant of Asha’s Indian Bar and Restaurant.Following a take over in 2015 and a refurbishment of £250,000 in 2016, we have transformed ourselves into an even better Metro experience during the day time, serving our all time favourite lunch menu and sophisticated Thai cuisine in the evenings. The restaurant area with a seating capacity of 80 guests is complete with a huge blossom tree centrepiece and a glassed private dining room that seats 20 guests. Zen Metro is the perfect place to enjoy divine Thai cocktails, exemplary service and an eclectic range of traditional and modern Thai dishes. Located in the heart of the Colmore Business District, close to The Town Hall, ICC, NIA and the recently completed New Street Station and Grand Central, Zen Metro is truly an iconic venue. With a long sweeping bar and comfy booths leading to the mirrored walkway into the restaurant, Zen is simply perfect for lunch, dinner, drinks or private functions. There’s a new glow at Zen Metro, now serving great Thai food. Come and see for yourself.

This restaurant is a quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of shopping or a busy work day. The menu is interesting and the food was very well presented but more importantly tasted great. Waiting staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable.

Food very good and the service excellent. The restaurant was not very busy but not in centre of town and it was pouring of rain which could be the reason. Probably busy in the week as we went on a Saturday night.
