    Exotic Dim Sum Afternoon Tea – Wing Wah, Birmingham

    For over 21 years, the Wing Wah restaurant was located at the iconic Wing Yip Centre in Nechells. 2019 has brought a new lease of life and this year Wing Wah relocated to a brand new, stylish premises in the heart of Chinatown, Birmingham. Menus continue to showcase beautifully-crafted dim sum and a la carte dishes suited for every taste and preference.

    Restaurant Folium, Jewellery Quarter – Birmingham

    I haven’t heard a bad thing about this restaurant and since visiting, I can understand why. Folium is a beautiful, minimal and modern venue in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter.
