A longstanding institution, Metro Bar & Grill on Birmingham’s Cornwall Street has been serving top-quality British and International cuisine to winers and diners since 1997. And in 2015, with the success of the restaurant, came the acquisition of a spectacular new Thai kitchen; enter Zen Metro.
Gleaming after a brand new £250,000 makeover, Zen Metro serves an evening menu of sophisticated Thai cuisine. The ideal destination for exotic post-work cocktails or a dinner date, Zen Metro features a huge blossom tree as its centrepiece, and ornate Thai inspired décor on the walls.
Make your way through the mirrored entrance of the restaurant and slide into one of the plush booths, before dining on a delectable, aromatic and fresh offering of both traditional and contemporary southeast-Asian fare. Warm your palate with mussels still in their shell, steamed in clay pot with Thai herbs and a coconut and chilli broth, before moving onto a traditional curry, such as the lamb massaman, prepared with baby potato, tomato, onion, coconut, peanuts and sweet Thai basil.
Zen Metro’s ethos is based on something simple and unique; Ensō. The circle, used in their logo, symbolises a particular moment in time that is as individual as the person that created it, which personifies Zen Metro’s unique impact on Birmingham’s dining scene. A stone’s throw away from Birmingham Cathedral, in the heart of the business district, Zen Metro invites tastecard members to experience their own moment of enlightenment with an unbeatable discount!
