Thai Restaurants in Birmingham
1. Peel's British, Modern restaurant in Hampton-in-Arden Hampton Manor, Shadowbrook Lane - B92
This Victorian manor house (with 15 bedrooms) is one of the grand dames of the Midlands hospitality scene, although – under proprietors the Hills, who have owned it since 1986 – it is in the middle of repositioning itself not just as a hotel, but as a provider of ‘immersive staycation experiences’ as ‘a spiritual home for the food lover’. There’s a new sibling to Peel’s (see Smoke), a new trendy bakery in the grounds, and new suites opening in 2022. Peel’s itself occupies a wood panelled chamber and is still the main culinary event, where chef Darren Meacham produces a six-course tasting menu, matched with (sometimes funky natural) wine pairings. On all reports, “celebrating a special occasion at Peel’s is itself a truly special experience”.
2. Sabai Sabai Thai restaurant in Birmingham 25 Woodbridge Road - B13
The original of this small local Thai chain inspired only limited feedback this year, but all to the effect that it’s a good-value choice.
3. Sabai Sabai Thai restaurant in Birmingham 268 High Street - B17
2018 Review: More reports please on Torquil and Juree Chidwick’s stylish modern Harborne Thai: part of a local mini-chain of upmarket Thai restaurants founded in Moseley in 2003.
4. Rosa's Thai Cafe Thai restaurant in Birmingham 2b Chamberlain Square - B3
2021 Review: The “lovely Thai food” at these reliable cafés is “impressively authentic given that they are a chain” – “excellent value” and “fast”, if occasionally let down by “iffy service”. Founded in 2008 by Saiphin and Alex Moore, who inherited the name of their first East End site, the group has 18 branches in London and expanded to Liverpool, Manchester, Reading (delivery only) and Leeds following the sale of a majority stake to US investors. The couple also have two spin-offs, Lao Café in Covent Garden and the new Chinese noodle bar Hoh Sek in St Katharine Docks.
5. Sabai Sabai Thai restaurant in Birmingham 8 Waterloo Street - B2
2019 Review: Fourth and most ambitious of this Thai mini-chain, established in Moseley in 2003 – it occupies a large Grade II listed, city-centre property that once housed the Legal and General Assurance Society. It opened in late 2018 – limited feedback so far, but all positive.
