Restaurants in Birmingham


With a total of over 200 restaurants serving British and international cuisine, there is something to suit every taste.

Whether it’s a unique dining experience in a quirky independent restaurant, a quick bite of street food or simply the Birmingham version of your favourite chain restaurant, the city has it covered.

Birmingham has fast become known as a culinary capital with four Michelin-starred restaurants, more than any other English city outside London, all of which are within easy walking distance from the ICC. The Birmingham uprising on the food scene has led to  recognition as the UK's "foodiest town" by BBC Magazine Olive and featuring in the top 20 List of places to go in 2012 by the New York Times.

Alternatively, if you like a curry you can't visit Birmingham without a trip to the Balti Triangle, which connects the Sparkbrook, Balsall Heath and Moseley areas to form a centre of Asian cuisine.

With such a vast selection of restaurants in the city you'll be spoilt for choice so it is worth visiting the Birmingyum webpage for some food inspiration. Brindleyplace is just a short hop across the canal from the ICC and offers a great selection of restaurants and al fresco options for the days when the sun is out. At the Mailbox, less than 5 minute walk down the canal from the ICC you will find even more restaurants to choose from.
