Slow service and horrible visibly fatty steak. Told staff and they eventually said they could see it was bad so refunded.

Very comfortable, well designed dining room. Good service although a little bit inexperienced with very little conversation beyond the bare minimum. The 7-hour lamb (£50 for 2 to share) was excellent. Will be back!

Impromptu birthday celebration with my son. Good service and food was of a good standard. Only issue was my main meal was warm not hot. Other than that second visit and would return again. Nice place. Three courses for 27.50 is a good deal!

Food was ok, nothing was badly done but the main was lukewarm, the salmon starter had the skin left on which wasn’t great and everything felt distinctly average. Sadly the price is not and paying £4 for any potatoes or veg on top is completely excessive. Despite the decor you can’t forget you’re in a shopping centre and the staff packing up chairs while we finished our desserts really destroyed the little ambience there was. Wouldn’t head back any time soon.

My first time at Tom Aitken’s Kitchen and it will be the last. Tom would be mortified if he could see what was being served. The food would be satisfactory if this were a “Beefeater “ pub with the associated prices but it isn’t.
£28 for a poor quality steak a few pieces of watercress and some over cooked chips. My wife had a very greasy piece of fried fish. Total bill £120. Never again!!

Tom's Kitchen is an upmarket restaurant in the heart of Birmingham, located next to Harvey Nicholls! We visited on the Friday of the Mar 2018 snowstorm, so the place was a fair bit emptier than expected.
But ... everything was still good! The service was definitely a highlight - everyone who served us was polite, helpful and friendly - and not over-attentive, which can spoil some evenings.
Food was well presented and tasty. I can recommend the 7 hour lamb for 2 (be prepared to wait around 30-40 minutes, as they warn on the menu) - falling off the bone and a sizeable amount of food! The wine list is good, with a decent range of lower priced wines and wines by the glass/carafe for those who want to drink less. There is a focus on meat (which suits me) but alternatives are available (my companion had the goats cheese starter from the vegetarian offerings)
I would recommend Tom's Kitchen to others - and, indeed, already have!

Had Sunday brunch here which I wouldrecommend. Great variety on offer. The ham, avocado on sourdough toast highly recommended.
They also do a pretty mean Bloody Mary!
Service is discreet and efficient. A very good restaurant, and the fact it backs onto the mailbox shopping centre doesn’t detract from the enjoyment as the designer shave done a very good job of shielding the diners for the mall.

A good pre theatre lunch option in the nice and central setting of the mailbox. A good Saturday menu with a mixture of brunch and lunch options - beautiful chicken schnitzel and hugely generous portions of accompanying mash and. Green beans. Well cooked and presented and amenable staff. I would return! The setting is basically an upmarket shopping centre I guess so ambience not totally engrossing but all in all a great find!!

In the Mailbox, an upmarket mall, tom's kitchen has a good vibe quite different to the more mainstream chains upstairs near the canal basin. Unusually for a restaurant set within a mall you don't feel enclosed or really in a mall at all, the design and high ceilings give it a good feel. Service has been great the 3 times we've been, food good though its a fairly limited menu we feel. great value,not as pricey as we expected and we feel you get good value for a premium experience.
