Mowgli’s Grand Central Birmingham – Restaurant Review

★★★★★ Mowgli’s Indian Street food is in Grand Central Station among all the other restaurants. From the outside, it gives a nice, relaxed jungle theme which is also reflected inside and I felt both the name and the interior reflected each other nicely. It was flat access to get inside with some of the tables… Continue reading Mowgli’s Grand Central Birmingham – Restaurant Review

@pizza Grand Central Birmingham – Restaurant Review

★★★★ @pizza is located in Grand Central Station, Birmingham. It is opposite Mrs Chow’s Chicken and next to Nandos. Getting in was quite difficult.

The entrance is flat access, although the doors are push and pull only, which is restricting if disabled customers are not with anyone. There are two sets of doors into… Continue reading Dishoom Birmingham – Restaurant Review

★★★ Rudy's Pizza Birmingham is located close to ASK Italian and Franco Manca, not far from New Street station. The restaurant had a small step up to it which my wheelchair could climb but it's something disabled customers need to be aware of. As usual, the restaurant has a standard-sized disabled toilet which is annoying.… Continue reading Rudys Birmingham – Restaurant Review

Dolce Birmingham City Centre – Restaurant Review

★★ Dolce is located on Corporation Street in Birmingham City Centre close to Aston University. The door was a normal push & pull arrangement, so I had to get my dad to open and hold it for me, it was flat access to get inside but the space was quite restricted and it looked to… Continue reading Dolce Birmingham City Centre – Restaurant Review
