Description: OK, so the name's hardly original but there's nothing else quite like Pad Thai in Birmingham. Step downstairs by the Cathay at Holloway Head and you enter a den of unforgettable fun. Here you can eat, drink and sing all in one stylish space, inspired by traditional Thai homes. At 6pm, the doors open and folk from across the West Midlands sit down (typically) for a green curry or pad thai, though there are over 140 dishes. Come 10:30pm, waitresses hand out mics, the big screen flickers into life and Pad Thai transforms into a karaoke lounge where Purple Rain, New York, New York and co. are crooned well into the early hours. Brilliant.

Booked this as a 40th Birthday venue for my sister - 30 women in a room with great food/drink/karaoke what a blast we all had!! The staff were very attentive at all times - the food came out piping hot and there was plentiful of it. Def would recomment this venue and if we ever back in Birmingham would go again!!! A big thankyou to all staff on the day especially Irene who attended to us with a big smile!!!

We came here for a Birthday meal and had a private booth, the food was lovely with a decent selection and the quantity was great. The staff were helpful and attended to our every need. The Karaoke machine was great, with a decent selection for all ages to enjoy. We moved downstairs after but the atmosphere was a bit dead with one group hogging the Karaoke meaning no one else could have a sing. I have been told that it is normally fun and vibrant and the poor atmosphere was unusual for the place. I would go again to see if the atmosphere is different and also on the basis that we did have a great night out.

First things first; I've had many fun nights at Pad Thai over the years, mainly because once you're wasted, who can resist a singsong?

Sadly, the last few visits have been lacking in almost every department.

We ordered a private booth for 3 hours at a cost of nearly 300 quid between 12, which we paid for in food and drinks. The food was average and was whisked away from still half full plates when I'm sure we would have grazed on it a bit longer.

The karaoke machine was bafflingly complicated to work and was missing some obvious mega popular songs.

The staff are generally a bit standoffish and don't look very happy to be there.

Worst of all though, they lied to our faces when we asked whether we could stay in the room after our booking ended at 11.20pm.

We were told another party was waiting to use the room and so we were turfed out in to the main room where it's almost impossible to have a go. And guess what? This fictitious party never materialised and the room remained empty all night.

Not only did they make a massive error in kicking us out as I'm sure we would've stayed longer and spent more in a private room, but the staff lacked even basic customer service skills and common sense which annoyed me massively.

I've given Pad Thai many chances over the years; next time I'll be going elsewhere.
