Unfortunately I fell unwell within a couple of hours after eating my meal. I have eaten with yourselves before and did not experience this but on this occasion I became severely ill.

I love the outdoor seating area. Really nice atmosphere. The staff are really nice and the satay chicken starter was amazing.
My only criticism is that I wasn’t allowed to have just two starters and get charged for that, it was set meal only for starter and a main. I didn’t want a set meal I wanted to just choose what I wanted. But other than that it was good

There was a bit of chaos when we arrived as there didnt seem to be a system of bookings, however we did get an apology before being shown to our table. Once seated, we waited for at least 30 minutes before someone took our order for a drink let alone food. The restaurant was really busy, especially outside and they seemed to be short staffed hence the wait. Once the food arrived it was delicious. I had fish curry as main which I ate but the fish was really dry even though it was coated in curry. My hubby has lamb shank which he enjoyed. There was a live band outside; they were awesome, playing mostly mowtown music for over 40s I would say. It was a fantastic atmosphere and a memorable evening for 1st time eating at a restaurant since lockdown. We'll definitely be going again.

1. bit of a scrum on reaching the premises: esp in Covid times, having someone handling arrivals *promptly* would reassure customers and help maintain social distancing.

2. Partly our fault, given the place's musical name, but a loud live band were playing in the (adjacent) garden, so quiet conversation was difficult for long spells of the evening.

Just a tad disappointed with the full priced cocktails.
No Visible peach purée in the Bellini, no passionfruit (fruit) in the PornStar, there was no Happy Hour as stated on the Website plus we were not advised of this when the enquiry was made for us to attend earlier for pre meal drinks.
We’ve had these cocktails cheaper in other establishments made up to expectation, apart from that, food and service was very good.

Will visit again when the full menu is back in service but will probably have Cocktails elsewhere.

Never write reviews but SO impressed...!!
It was a surprise birthday meal and the staff were fantastic at facilitating the secret. A special complimentary dessert too, with a candle! And a song 😲as well.
We have eaten at The Blue Piano before, so expected good food, and on this occasion it was excellent, our choices assisted with the waitress's recommendations.
It was a quiet evening, really relaxing, with a good choice of music played in the background. A big thank you to the staff. In all, a thoroughly enjoyable experience!

The menu offers a good range of South East Asian food. We had a range of different starters, mains and desserts between our group and all were well presented, extremely tasty and reasonably priced.

I little piece of Singapore in Birmingham! Possibly the best Rendang I've had - certainly in the UK!

Their carrot cake is excellent and a real treat to find this outside Singapore.

Good cocktails, excellent ambiance with live music from the next door bar. Friendly service and a thorough allergy menu.

RECOMMENDED.

Thank you for coming to the rescue when I forgot the candles for my partner’s birthday cake. The cake made his day and it wouldn’t have been the same if it hadn’t been lit! Thank you.

Valentine's dinner. Absolutely spectacular food. The carrot cake starter was insanely good. The lamb stirfry main was brilliant. The chocolate brownie desert was epic. Even the sorbet palate cleanser was amazing. We stayed upstairs overnight too - wonderful and quiet room. Loved this place and we'll definitely be back.

We came in for lunch and was one of the first to arrive. No one else in for lunch, but it did pick up around 12-12:30. We ordered from the lunch menu and was great food really tasty and good portions. Took a while for the food to be made which was a little disappointing as I only came in on my lunch break and only 3 others came in for lunch at the same time. I would recommend this place but maybe for evening meal.

We had a party of 5 and the food was lovely. The service was slightly slow, but it was busy in the restaurant and it didn't really matter as we were chatting.
I have been here a few times now and it certainly did not disappoint!
