    Lovely place in a quiet location in Edgbaston. The only issue was due staff illness the mixologist was unavailable, and one of the more expensive main meals was delivered to the table with missing components and was not value for money. Overall, it was a fantastic and we would go again.

    The food was decent but I was disappointed with the service which was apathetic and unhelpful. It was also empty on a Tuesday evening so may be better to go when it's slightly busier.

    Arrived for quiet meal booked on line to find a jamaican night on outside. The chef had gone home sick so only 2 main courses available. We were told all starters available, but once we sat down they clearly weren’t. Cocktail menu was given to us then removed as not available. The waitress did the best she could under the circumstances but i think she was a stand in as we had to request the dips to go with the starters. Having said all that the food we did get was great, and i had heard good things about this restaurant, so perhaps an unlucky night. We used to go alot to Blue Ginger in kings heath before it closed, so disappointed with its sister restaurant. Will give it another try given the circumstances.

    I've been to Blue Piano several times in the past so I knew the food would be good. It was a busy evening and once seated, it took 35 minutes before our order was taken. 😯 The food came out pretty quickly thereafter.

    The staff were friendly however there were not enough staff for how many bookings they had. I had to get up and ask for someone’s attendance. The starters arrived and my partner took a bite which contained egg and we had mentioned we were vegan. The waitress said she would check and came back and said the chef said it was vegan, she then took them back and he said no they are not. Nothing was offered for this error. When we got the correct food it was tasty but I think with the errors made and lack of attendance I think it was overpriced. I have been a few times although I think this will have been my last visit.

    We chose the Blue Piano for a birthday meal with some friends who had come up from Dorset. We had never been to the Blue Piano before but chose it after seeing the reviews online were very good and it was the cuisine we were looking for. For once the internet was right and we were not disappointed, this place is truly excellent! All the food was exquisite, packed full of flavour. The staff were very attentive and knew what they were talking about. The Singapore carrot cake is just 'wow' (you just need to try it!) Not the cheapest of meals out but you definitely get what you pay for. We are already planning on when we are going back to try some of the other dishes!

    Not as good as it used to be food unimaginative beware the 10% automatically added to your bill this was never the case before . I think it must of been taken over or the chef has left . It was like a nursery instead of a restaurant children running around and noisy .

    When we arrived(having booked),there was no one to greet us and we had to wander about and find a waitress.The service was a little slow and we had to ask several times for some ice and sparkling water.However,the food was excellent.The noise level was high as there was a band performing in the bar and there was a large table of noisy people.

    My husband and I went to blue piano for our 1st Wedding Annivesary. My husband had booked a table and also advised its our 1st wedding annivesary and asked if they could do something special. As we got to the restraunt they were friendly at arrival. Food was lovely. Knowing it was our 1st Wedding Annivesary the restraunt did not do anything special not even wished us happy 1st Wedding Annivesary. They made us wait around for 40mins for our bill. I would not recommend this restraunt purely for the service we had recieved. Once the bill came out we didn't bother paying the service charge as it was not good at all. The waitress then had the nerve to add a few pounds to out bill thinking we won't know. We will not be going back to this place again.

    A quiet Covid affected New Years Eve meal. Excellent southern Asian food - right amount of spicing. Very attentive and friendly staff. Will be back - hopefully when more fellow customers to add much missed atmosphere. Thank you Blue Piano for an excellent end to our 2021 dining.

    Reception area cluttered with boxes and greeting needs to be swifter. We waited 5 minutes for someone to receive us. Plates cold and starter plates not cleared before mains arrived. However food was excellent and I would have enjoyed everything on the menu. There are lots of hard surfaces meaning it is a little noisy. Curtains and rugs may help.

    The food is excellent. The Satay Chicken and Vegetable Spring Roll starters we had were hot, nicely presented and delicious, as were our main courses of Thai Green Curry and Jasmine Rice. The servers were very polite and friendly however, their service was very haphazard and it was clear that they were very inexperienced. They didn't know the menu or drinks available. Our main meals were brought to the table whilst we were still eating our starters and so had to be returned to the kitchen. That said, we had a lovely evening at Blue Piano and we will definitely return.

    Food was excellent and staff were very helpful. Sadly, for the first hour we were the only people in the restaurant then another party can in around 8pm. The staff told us that they were getting a lot of cancellations due to the latest COVID situation. Very sad that hospitality sector are again being seriously disadvantaged at this, usually very busy, time.

    I have been for dinner at Blue Piano 3 times and the food is consistently high standard and value for money compared to other places in central Birmingham. If you love authentic South East Asian food I would recommend giving BP a try.
