My 9 year old likes it at Giraffe Grand Central. So whenever we go to Birmingham I will book us a table to eat. I think we got a great meal and drinks for the money. The kids menu is great. My only grumble is that is was really hot in the summer weather but that’s not the fault of the restaurant.

I think the katsu curry portions could have been way bigger. also we should be able to split the bill and still use student discount. overall it was really nice. i would come again

Wait staff were lovely and good food, but had to request any condiments with our food, we weren't offered any and to not have chilli sauce available as standard in a world food eatery was quite bizarre.

Really lovely meal, the food and presentation was excellent. The main meals tasted really nice.
The sticky toffee pudding was overly sweet and the cheesecake had a very peculiar texture which we didn’t like.
I would definitely come back here again.

The music is so unbelievably loud it’s quite off-putting, staff seem to be in a rush to get customers out of there which I suppose is fair enough due to the location. Food was nice and reasonably priced but probably wouldn’t go again.

Customer service is great here. Thank you again. We'll be back after lockdown for breakfast 😁

Our experience was tainted by an unfriendly, borderline rude Supervisor/Manager. He acted like he hated his life, he seemed stand-offish when he greeted us/walked us to our table, he gave off a very cold vibe considering he is in a customer facing role...

Our actual server was a girl, she was lovely, very friendly and did lots of check backs. the food was good though, good portion sizes and a lot of options on the menu.

Was in Birmingham for the weekend and most places were packed out. However decided to give this spot a try and the food was amazing as well as the service although there was a bit of a wait time.

As soon as we arrived, they greeted us with a warm and friendly smile couldn’t ask for anything better. The lady that served us, nothing was to much for her, she was lovely. Sorry can’t remember her name but she made sure everything was fine for us which is was. Couldn’t fault the service!

Good food and 2-4-1 cocktails were great, although very different tastes by two different bar staff
Toilets too far away I'm afraid for us. By the time we all went to the toilet our evening had ended
Staff great fun

Overpriced bland food. The restaurant was empty except for one other table. They tried to place us next to that table. The way the tables are located. We would be back to back with them. With about 20 cm gap. Which is very inappropriate during a covid outbreak.

The food was tiny bland and overpriced.

I will never eat there again

Great atmosphere, unfortunately that was all. Food looked like it had just been flung on the plate, warm not hot food, barely any flavour. Very disappointing as I usually love the food from Giraffe, however this restaurant was awful. Was definitely NOT worth £33.
