The quality of the food was poor unfortunately. Scrambled eggs had black bits in them, bacon was mainly fat and the toast not browned. Of course we should have complained at the time. . .

Fantastic food when it was reheated, service was appalling very rude, not interested at all the 2 women on service. Rushed our food and dessert because they ‘closed at 8’ yet didn’t mention this when they happily seated us at 7 and offered us dessert at 7:55.

We used to have Giraffe in Reading, the staff were super attentive and the food good, the food was ok at this 1 in Birmingham but the service terrible. We had kids with us and they usually give them colouring in etc. There was none of that. Overall a bit disappointing

Excellent food, super waitress service and fantastic value for money. We had the Christmas menu which was 3 courses for the price of 2, plus a glass of prosecco each (there were 4 of us), a bottle of wine which was half price and crackers on the table and a Christmas card. We will definitely be returning.

We booked ahead for a Saturday early evening meal, because it's a very busy time.
Food was excellent - we had the tapas selection - but staff struggled with the number of customers. The staff were very helpful and tried their best but they need more on duty at busy times. (One of our dishes was forgotten, plus the special price for multiple dishes wasn't applied to our bill).
I'm not a fan of service charge being included on the bill, but 10% was OK.

Such a shame as the food was enjoyable but the lack of service and interaction meant daughters dessert was missed, I had to chase my food, chase for service, asked for the kids toys, bill was incorrect and witnessed staff being rude to one another.

Really enjoyed our brunch, catered well for us plus our toddler. Diverse brunch menu. Did not have to wait too long to be served or for our food to arrive which was ideal with a young child. Staff were really welcoming and attentive. Only thing we would really change is that we love our fresh orange freshly squeezed but aside from that it was perfect for brunch.

We arrived during the lunch time rush but we were seated promptly. The staff were attentive without being overly pushy. My partner ordered a prawn curry and I had the fish and chips, I opted to pay the extra £2 to "Go large" on the fish. Our food arrived without too long a wait and I was surprised at the fish portion, I thought it would just be a larger sized fillet but it was TWO pieces of fish with a good portion of chips. My partner really enjoyed the curry and I must admit the fish was tasty but I struggled to finish both pieces. We had a dessert of a sharing dish of Churros with a chocolate sauce. The chocolate was a little disappointing as it tasted quite synthetic. The only down side was the fact because it is in the main Central Concourse it was very noisy. Overall though it was a nice meal.

The service was good and I really enjoyed my main, however, I was extremely disappointed with the dessert. I ordered the white chocolate and passionfruit cheesecakes and it had no flavour to it. I could not taste any white chocolate and even the dribble of sauce did not add anything to it, I thought it was the biggest waste of money!

Overall, a very pleasant eating experience. We had Lamb Tagine and Chicken Katsu which were both most enjoyable. The desserts that we wanted were not available, that was the only disappointment.

I went to meet up with a friend I hadn't seen in a while and we both had never been here before. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and very helpful. I asked for my meal to be altered slightly and the staff sorted it out in a very professional way. The food is lovely and very of a good standard, as well as the prices being very reasonable. I will definitely be returning again.

Visited the restaurant during half term luckily I booked a table so was shown to it straight away
Food and drink orders where taken quickly and arrived in good time.

How ever the air con was blowing big time so made the food go cold quick.

Also the restaurant was in the middle of a shopping centre so there where no near by toilet facilities

We enjoyed a really nice meal at Giraffe - Grand Central when we were visiting Birmingham. There was a good range of choices on the menu - hard to choose - and just a bit different to the usual restaurants.
The restaurant is very open, being located in the upper concourse of the railway station, so not cosy, but staff were very friendly and helpful. Wish we had a Giraffe nearer home!

Disappointing in comparison to other Giraffe restaurant s visited but perhaps this was because of lack location. Food fast and unattractive although tasted ok. No servitude or cutlery without asking. Quick bite to eat but nothing more.

Food was average, my burger wasn't piping hot, very noisy but place and average service yet add 10% on the bill which isn't justified. Overall overpriced for a very average vegan menu I wouldn't eat here again as there are places offering better variety at a better price.
