Amazing food, really cheap and friendly staff! Don't be put off by the slightly dodgy locations/appearance because you'll be missing out!

Went with my mates for a meal and drinks lastnight had a blast. Having chosen to eat here after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor I must say im surprised there are a couple of poor reviews. However no ones perfect all the time, but if you want good food, good service, and a great atmosphere this is the place to be. Quality food and drink at a very reasonable price. The staff very sociable and accommodating keep up the good work guys. Cant wait to plan our next night here.

Went here for an evening out with some work colleagues and had a meal to remember. It's a decent pub with great Indian food. It would be easy to walk past this place and not even give it a second look, but you really would be missing out. Enough people have already mentioned the mixed grill for you to know its epic.....the rest of the food was great too. We spent close to £20 a head with two pints and we had far too much food (we gave some away to the locals!!!) In an age when pubs are dying it's great too see enterprising landlords bucking the trend. You don't get to be the second best restaurant in Birmingham unless you have something special hiding behind that average facade.

One of the joys of Trip Advisor is that it's not only fancy restaurants and haute cuisine which can be found at the top of the list; Hen and Chickens is a fine example. Let's be honest; without the reviews I would have never thought of going here; it's a bar-pub, with a bright interior and a fairly indifferent selection of beers, although there are a few good bottles in the fridge. But this place is all about the food.

We sat in the back room, which is small, and has an open fire and a television; we didn't really need the MTV-style programme being on while we were eating, the fire would have provided enough entertainment, although it had almost gone out by the time we left. The menu is simple - no fancy-named dishes, we're talking about lamb balti, chicken korma, lamb bhuna; likewise there are not pages of sides, just a few types of rice, naan and vegetable dish. However we were asked how we would like our curries i.e. how hot - this shows they're cooked to order.

The service wasn't fast, but the staff were always very helpful and wanted to make sure we were happy. And when the food arrived there were definitely no complaints; everything was delicious. The portions are on the generous side; you definitely don't need a starter, and my 'medium' curry was towards the top of my spice tolerance - don't ask for anything hot unless you really like spices! It's all very good value with main courses around £4-5, and about £2-3 for sides.

Hen and Chickens isn't the place for a cosy evening with your partner, but if you're looking for good quality curry with some mates then it's a great choice.

A good place for students on a budget or maybe with the lads and a few pints. Yes and the mixed grill is tasty and filling. But watch out as currently nearly half of the amazing 5 star trip advisor reviews are from 1 report reviewers.
It’s OK but that all.
