We had trouble finding the restaurant initially as the sign for it was on an oriental supermarket, however a kind lady pointed out that it was upstairs. Our waitress was wonderful! Very helpful, attentive and helped us pick some lovely dishes. Thank you for such a nice evening meal in Birmingham.

Visited this nice restaurant a few days after Christmas. Went for dim sum rather than queue an hour for a burger at Burger King. A good choice, efficient service and the food was tasty. About £30 for all of us - 2 adults, 2 children, including drinks. A little hard to find, it's upstairs in the Arcadian, above Soba.

I find the dim sum menu a little bit lacking for a veggie but the vegetable dishes on the main menu excellent Tofu in black bean sauce and I asked for fresh chilli together with plain noodles was scrummy Quick service as it was a quiet day and we were in early but no complaints

There are lots of huge circular tables which are excellent for raucous family meals. The staff are friendly with the manager always out at front of house. It is great for the kids, with a fish tank, and accomodating hosts. We have been back innumerable times, with pulled duck prepared at table always a highlight. Huge range of dishes. Tucked... More

A group of 8 of us went before the theatre on a Saturday evening. The food was excellent but despite the restaurant being virtually empty, the service was abysmal. Six starters came together but the other two took a further 10 minutes to arrive and one main didn't come at all - they just forgot about it. We won't be... More
