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.

Probably the best food we’ve had in a very long time. This is the second time we visited the restaurant and this time it was even better despite being extremely satisfied the first time. We were given a beautiful table in a gorgeous setting, the service was exceptional: both professional and warm and the food was to die for! Highly recommended and we will be going back! Thank you to all the staff for an all round superb experience.

Virtually all bones. Very disappointed, especially as it was a birthday treat from my son. Others in the group really enjoyed their food.

Happened to walk past Zen Metro after we were turned away from Opus at 8.30 on a Wednesday night. What a find and so glad we decided to give it a try! The restaurant was full, and after a little wait in the bar we were seated quickly. The dining room was beautiful, and the food was incredible! Fantastic service, I believe it was the manager. Cannot fault this place at all! Wil definitely be returning next time we are in Birmingham!

Booked table on an offer through Bookatable. Mid week offer only which was nice as there were not too many people in the restaurant.
We were serve by Honey who looked after us extremely well and explained each course as it arrived.
Food was very nice and tasty with portion sizes being just right.
Will definitely be looking to come back and try the full menu

After looking through many different restaurants, I picked this one for our trip to Birmingham. It was faultless from start to finish, greeted promptly as soon as we walked up to the door and seated quickly.

The food and presentation of it was just spot on, the waitress was lovely, they also accepted the gourmet card which was even better. The restaurant it's self had a great decor scheme, would certainly return if I'm ever around the area again.

Well done team Zen. P.S, they do the best egg fried rice you'll ever have!
