Well placed in the heart of Birmingham’s foremost financial and professional area - the Colmore Business District, Zen Metro is an upmarket Thai restaurant and bar with an assorted selection of dishes ranging from the modern to the traditional. The location is within easy reach of both Birmingham New Street and Birmingham Snow Hill train stations.
The bartenders mix exotic and classic cocktails at the sweeping statement bar, while a stunning mirrored walkway to the restaurant area sets the tone for this swanky spot. And at the heart of the dining room ‘grows’ a beautiful blossoming tree.
The menu features Asian dishes rich in flavour. One particularly lavish creation is stir fried whole lobster with ginger, mix mushrooms, crop aubergine, peppers, baby corn and crushed yellow beans (£32.95). There are also massaman curries, tempura vegetables and classic pad Thai - rice noodles stir fried with tofu, eggs, peanut, green onion and bean sprouts.
Puddings include the East-West fusion dish of lemongrass infused creme brulee (£5.95). The wine list is varied but the cocktails are the real star of the show. Lemongrass makes another appearance infused into vodka and mixed with lime and Thai basil. And the Black Forest Martini features cherry brandy, butterscotch schnapps, pomegranate and mixed fruit.
