You can see what they are trying to do. Lift Chinese cuisine into a fine dining experience, unfortunately it isn't quite refined enough in presentation or flavour. For the price you really should get better. Lobster over cooked and Wagyu beef was greasy. Not doing the ingredients justice is a crime. The staff and service were excellent and the whole restaurant and ambiance was outstanding but unfortunately it was lacking where it counts the most.

My girlfriend and I have dined here before and really enjoyed it. After ten years together I decided to have our anniversary at tattu, but also to propose, the staff couldn’t have been more supportive and helpful and really made the evening so special for us both. I had a few requests and everything went exactly to plan, it was perfect. The ambience is perfect for an intimate evening and the prices are reasonable. I would recommend for the service alone, however the food is excellent as well - all round a good choice and my favourite place in Birmingham. Cocktails are fun too!

Gorgeous food and love being able to have lots of small plates so you get to try a lot. Cocktails are just as amazing as the food!! The feel of the restaurant is great plus the brilliant service to top it off.

The restaurant was only just warm so at times I was cold. There were two different music sounds being played at the same time, one was Christmas songs the other upbeat music which was incredibly distracting and annoying!
One of our party members arrived late and although said my name and was asked to spell my name on the door she was not a loud in. The lady concerned said that the booking was in the name of Kate Glynn it was a booking at seven o'clock for 5/6 people. She was told that there were no Kate's booked in, however when I had the conversation to the same lady and asked her how many Kate's she had booked in at 7pm she said many! Whilst I understand and agree that you can't let people just wonder around the restaurant looking for people at the very least someone could have escorted her to see if she could see us, however apparently the reservations manager (who we were dealing with) said she had been far too busy to do this. The lady concerned I found very patronising (as did the lady trying to get into the restaurant to join her colleagues for their Christmas meal) and just kept going on and on as to why she didn't let her in, once would have been enough! But she came back to the table twice to say exactly the same thing! I recommended we came to the restaurant as I have been to the one in Manchester which was far superior in many ways, as this is a brand I would have expected to have the same experience. I will be pursuing this more with your head office in the new year especially as there are other aspects of this whole scenario that doesn't sit well with me. I would like to say our waitress on the night was very good, attentive and sympathetic to our plight.

I would definitely recommend tattu for a fine dining experience. The staff were extremely polite, helpful and the service was topnotch. Would highly recommend to reserve a table as it can be busy. The decor leaves you in awe and the entire atmosphere is magical. The only thing that let me down was the menu. They offer halal meat options which is fantastic but this is not stated on the menu. So of course i did not know what i could/ could not have. The waiters did explain to us about the options, however i did feel rushed as i could not visibly see the halal menu, hence ended up ordering on the waiters recommendation. Not all the food was of my liking but again this was down to not knowing what to order. Would 100% recommend you do your research on the menu well in advance. Had a lovely evening and overall would recommend it to others :)

Although I would have liked to have reserved a table under the blossom canopy (didn't realise I would need to specify), we were sat facing a window looking at the impressive staircase that looks like it goes down to Kanye Wests's basement. This turned out to be perfectly placed as we had an absolute belly-laugh watching all the vacuous selfies being taken on the stairs. Or 'friendies', I should say as they all got their lesser attractive friend to take the picture for them. I say picture, singly, but it was definitely plural.
One girl had her friend take and retake her picture approximately 157 times. I tried shouting out to her "But that's what you look like" but to no avail. The glass between us proved too sound-proof. Another plus-point for the restaurant. Bless her, she must have shifted to rest her weight on a different thigh about 30 times, but both her legs seemed to let her down as she still wasn't happy with her important pic. I think she got there in the end though. She deserved a great pic as she really put the effort into it. You go girl!
The muscle-bound hunks were also out in force on Kanye's stairs. Pictures of them straining and popping their moderately sized arms was another highlight. So inspiring were these hunks of meat that I couldn't help but join in and pop a muscle pose right back through the window. They were clearly impressed and appreciated it. They were shouting back and gesturing what I can only assume were positive remarks. Again, thanks to the impressive gauge of the glass.
Oh, and the food was sublime. Dim sum that you'd think would normally be deserved to be served from Beyonce's naked thigh. Or at least one of the lower tier members of Destiny's Child. Amazing.
The only negative is that now that my wife has gotten used to drinking out of a smoking crystal skull, she has refused all other forms of refreshment vessel. I fear she may dehydrate soon as I cannot seem to find your crystal skull supplier.
Would recommend. A lot. x

Invited friends to join us for a get together at this place to which it was their first visit. As usual the ambience was very good, lively and enticing. The disappointing thing is that even we had a reservation there was nowhere to sit in the bar area for pre dinner drinks. Because of this we opted to go to the table early as advised by the reception staff. However we were kept waiting for 10 minutes for someone to take us to our table which was quite uncomfortable. When we did get to our table we were introduced to our waiting staff and ordered drinks. It was very cold where we were sitting so we asked for the air con to be turned off or turned to warm. When the drinks arrived we were introduced to a new member of waiting staff without explanation. This was not a problem however and in-turn we ordered the food. All members of our party really enjoyed their food and generally the service was acceptable. I understand that it’s a Saturday evening , two weeks before Xmas but the attention to detail needs tweaking.

The heating never changed and my wife spent the evening with her coat on.

Also the toilets were extremely cold and totally unacceptable and very dirty. I reported the poor condition of the gents but did not see any improvement whilst there.

It’s a great restaurant with a good vibe and very good food although quite expensive but I would visit again and hope to see some improvements.

Quite disappointed that we were unable to have a drink at the bar before eating, maybe a section can be reserved for diners who have a booking.

We were slightly dissapointed,as I booked this a while ago for our 10th wedding anniversary ,,yes your restaurant is very beautiful but it just wasn't the experience we wanted as we had really been looking forward to this night and of all the restaurants we could have picked we chose this one,,,,we were sat near the till/bar up a corner,,we were not helped much with the menu or explained anything,had we realised the portion sizes of small plates we would have ordered differently,,our rice was very late with our mains and was so hard we couldn't eat it,,we did let staff know once they had come over,,,and were offered a free drink !! This is all very well but just doesn't make for the whole experience,,,just really dissapointing as we were really looking forward to this for a long time,, if your going to have such a beautiful restaurant and you want people to enjoy their experience,, then you need to run it impeccably and make sure EVERYONE gets the same treatment,,that said my food was beautiful,aside the rock hard apparently steamed jasmine rice!!!!!!!!

The restaurant itself is beautiful. The issue we had was our food came out at separate times, therefore my friend was halfway through her meal before mine arrived and we had ordered a side to share which was obviously not enjoyed to the fullest due to the lateness of it. Our waitress was very quite and didn't laugh at the banter we were having. Our drinks weren't replenished and we weren't asked if we would like to order more drinks, we had two drinks during our meal, I think if we were asked we would have spent a lot more on drinks. We did notice that the tables around us who had wine were getting a better service then us as we were on cocktails. I would love to go back and try the different dishes but the service is not good it is more along the standards of Wag a Mama's where the food comes out as and when it is cooked, at least there you get told it is going to come out in stages....

This was an absolutely stunning place and the food was lovely but I had to keep my coat on the whole time because the air conditioning was so cold. I wasn’t the only one, other diners too had jumpers, cardigans, coats etc. Our server was lovely, very friendly and knowledgeable but the service was slow due I imagine to how busy the restaurant was for a Thursday.
