It was freezing cold in there, need to put the heating on.
Service was very slow
Poor communication with booking payments.

Tried this restaurant as they had a specific pre theatre menu and were well placed for the Birmingham rep. Staff were very welcoming and attentive. The building is quite large in an L shape and nicely decorated. Surprisingly small number of tables given the size, nice not to be crowded. The food was excellent, really well presented and delicious. Drink choices were good too. Only let down was that it was very cold in the restaurant. It was freezing outside that evening but even so the restaurants heating should have been able to deal with this. My wife ended up eating wearing her coat. On a warmer evening I would think this restaurant would be perfect.

Beautiful food, but have to say it would have been so much better if thy put the heating on - too cold in a really attractive venue.

The restaurant itself has a nice design to it. However, its very noisy and the food is average.

Booked a table of six for my wife’s Birthday. Restaurant was very busy, guessing work Christmas parties, so a nice atmosphere. The food and service was excellent, could not fault the evening at all, it was a little pricey but I’m always happy to pay extra if it’s worth it and it was! Will definitely return.

Our experience at Zen Metro was great, the food, staff and ambience all amazing.
I planned a surprise bridal shower for my friend there and we all had the best time.
Will definitely consider going there on our next girl's night out.

What a find!! Beautiful food well served and presented. We loved all the fresh ingredients and came away not feeling as though we had carb overload. The scallops were missed off my main course which was disappointing but were served when I highlighted it. The staff were professional and caring. We will certainly be visiting again and recommending you😀

Outstanding food. We went for the full moon set menu and it was absolutely delicious, in particularly the BBQ duck starter and massaman and pad Thai mains.
Its not the cheapest restaurant but the food quality really was worth it!
The staff were absolutely lovely also, and the decor was very authentic.
My only slight criticism is the alcohol was pretty pricey but the wine we had was very nice.

Two friends and I had lunch at Zen Metro. Our first time and definitely not our last. Helpful waiter and the food was delicious. We had the set lunch and it was very good value. Prawn crackers , two courses and a drink included. We were sat in the bar area but the waiter turned the lights on in the main restaurant area so we could have a photo by the pretty cherry blossom tree.
It was very quiet which is a shame. There are still quite extensive road works outside but don’t let this put you off. Once you can get to the restaurant through the maze of barriers it is well worth the effort. Highly recommend Zen Metro.
