In the heart of Birmingham’s bustling financial district is the stylish Chung Ying Central Restaurant. Styled in dark wood and oriental flourishes, this restaurant and cocktail bar boasts a contemporary setting and an accomplished menu.

Chung Ying Central offers an extensive selection of delectable dim sum and tasty options, including traditional favourites like tantalising crispy duck and sumptuous sweet & sour chicken - alongside the more adventurous salt and chilli frog legs, and braised lobster tail with ginger and spring onion.

Drinks are in keeping with the oriental theme and cocktails like Double Dragon and Velvet Horse are just a taster of the enticing list. Specially selected beers also adorn the menu and a daily happy hour makes Chung Ying restaurant a great spot for after work drinks.

Chung Ying Central in Birmingham is the latest offering from the Chung Ying collection of restaurants, and is located a 10-minute walk from Birmingham New Street Station.

    Great flavours, great selection , great service but limited table time to 2 hours. Very enjoyable but NOT a romantic venue!

    Two of us dined at Ching Ying Central, the service was prompt and attentive. Complimentary prawn crackers and cocktails, then set menu for two, failsafe starters squid and duck pancakes and mains of sweet chilli sea bass, peppered beef and cashew chicken and a bucket of special fried rice. Washed down with a chinese beer. The only issue was, we were never going to eat all the food - generous offerings. £70 For the two of us, the cocktails we're £9 a pop.

    I had a terrible experience with this restaurant.
    We booked a table early time (17:30) to have a quick dinner before the concert at 19:00.
    There were not many guests when we enter the restaurant around 17:30 and I expect to have foods within 15-20 minutes.
    However, after they serve drinks and also dishes, any food was served more than 30 minutes. I requested foods a couple of times and finally some food including the soup came to our table after 50 minutes. One of the waitress told me their execuse "Because we were so busy...".without any apology.
    The service was terrible and I will never recommend this restaurant.

    Great food chose the set menu for 4 and was not disappointed. The meal was excellent and would highly recommend this restaurant. One negative about the restaurant is that the bar is situated in the middle of the restaurant and can get roudy with those just drinking at the bar.

    Lovely food and service was great only negative would be that the dishes on the menu need some sort of description - I didn't know what a lot of them were.
