Blending simplicity with big, bold flavours, Tom’s Kitchen Birmingham is open seven days a week, serving British favourites and comfort food classics in a relaxed and informal brasserie setting. Location in The Mailbox, the city’s number one shopping destination, the restaurant is open for lunch, dinner and their famous weekend brunch.
Seasonality is key to the bespoke Tom Aikens menu, with dishes such as roast fillet of sea bream with braised chicory and a heritage tomato salad, and breast of duck with a shiitake mushroom risotto. From the grill come juicy burgers and steaks served with triple-cooked chips, whilst vegetarian dishes include a courgette dukkha, fennel and turmeric salad, and a curried carrot risotto with fermented carrots. For dessert, the menu includes raspberry millefeuille with raspberry sorbet, as well as an indulgent chocolate & peanut butter marquise.
Brunch at Tom’s Kitchen features gourmet twists, with signature dishes including seasonal berry pancakes, truffle eggs Benedict or Tom’s full English. A varied kids’ menu is also on offer, served at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In addition to the restaurant, the bar welcomes diners from the restaurant, as well as guests wanting to drop in for an after-work beer or pre-dinner cocktail, offering a selection of craft beers, cocktails, and wines from around the world.
Find Tom’s Kitchen Birmingham within The Mailbox, a 5-minute walk from Birmingham New Street station.

Very disappointed. Not sure what this restaurant is trying to do but it seems like normal mundane food that is not value for money

Great food.... We shared a crab starter followed by mains of Sea Bream & Duck. Absolutely sumptuous!
We dined late on a Saturday evening and it wasn't busy but getting the attention of the waitresses was akin to trying to hitch a ride on a busy motorway.
Lastly, I can't believe they only have one toilet... It was disgusting when I used it at around 10.30pm.

Good food but very disappointed with the length of time taken between starters and mains.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere and service is good, out waiter Emanualle was very attentive and polite. Whilst the meals are good, they aren't honestly any better than really good pub restaurants that we have eaten in. Our chocolate fondant was a bit disappointing, it was more a pudding, as didn't have much fondant in at all.

Overall the meal was disappointing. I would say forgettable but there were certain moments in the dining experience that we couldn't forget. The waiter gave poor recommendations for what whisky should be used in an Old Fashioned. The potato and leek soup was green and lacking in taste but that may have been due to the leek-based recipe used. The prosciutto on the charcuterie board was of poor quality. The chicken schnitzel, recommended by our waiter was average at best. To top it all off, we had a very loud bachelorette party, who should have booked a private room for their event.
