Staying at the Raddison Blu, Will be at Circo Loco from 1pm-1am, so will need good lunch and decent dinner.

Having the "Super Breakfast Buffet" at the hotel, so will want a nice lunch, before getting the 7pm train back.

If these Ghetto in Handsworth or Aston, cant be bothered with the travelling Laughing out loud unless the food is banging.

yeh, Balti Triangle is good.

If you need veggi recommendations (which I'm sure you don't!) I'm your man. As Rez mentioned Cafe Soya's cheap and cheerfull.

There's a great (apparently - it always has a constant stream of people pulling up to it) Jamaican/Jerk Chicken takeaway at the top of Digbeth by my unit
