Plenty of choice for the price, especially during lunchtime hours. Food is usually fresh, although towards the end of lunchtime it can become quite stale. Generally, staff are friendly and polite, drinks are a little expensive. I would definitely recommend it for a lunchtime break....More

The Wing Wah Restaurant in Birmingham was the very first restaurant in The Wing Wah Group and opened its doors in 1997. It is the Jewel in the Crown of the Wing Wah Group, and is just as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. You can easily find us in the Wing Yip Centre, minutes from Birmingham City Centre and close to Star City. Enter the spectacular Chinese Pagoda and you are immediately transported to a different world - a world of master chefs, tantalizing dishes and intriguing cooking styles. From dim sum to tappenyaki, hot pot to sushi, Yakitori barbeque grill to the extensive buffet, Wing Wah offers high quality traditional favourites and unusual oriental delicacies at exceptional prices. Indeed, in the past our rooms have been host to British Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
