Offering a modern Chinese experience in the heart of Birmingham, Tattu is a smart and seductive Chinese restaurant where diners can sample a host of contemporary and creative sharing dishes. Founded in 2015 by two brothers, Tattu now has multiple restaurants across the UK including Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and London. The name derives from the words ‘tattoo’ and 'tatau’, an ancient word meaning ‘to make a mark’, with the idea behind the restaurant being to bring together outstanding food and design. 

Indeed, the interiors at Tattu Birmingham are something to be marveled at. A dark colour palette of greys and black create a moody and mysterious feel, while a mass of purple blossom hangs above the dining room providing a dramatic, but very pretty, focal point. The restaurant itself is spacious and allows diners to sit at either tables and chairs or sofas.  

There are both a la carte and tasting menus available, including a vegetarian option. The main menu is divided into dim sum, small and large plates, rice, noodles, vegetables and desserts. Kick off with some tasty dim sum plates, such as duck spring rolls with spring pnion, crispy shallots and cherry hoisin, or lobster and prawn toast with sesame and sweet and sour chilli sauce. Small plates include sticky beef short ribs with soy, chilli and crispy shallots, black cod croquettes with ginger and garlic aioli and chilli crusted tofu with kohlrabi, coriander and chilli soy. From the large plates, look out for caramel soy aged beef filled with shiitake, ginger and asparagus, and char sui honey glazed monkfish with morning glory, caramel orange and pickled cucumber. 

Discover a range of creative cocktails including signatures, favourites and sharing options. A Yin Yang espresso martini features whisky, agave and soy, while a Sake Sour mixes vodka, plum sake and passion fruit. A lengthy wine list with tasting notes helps guide the reader to their preferred choice, but you’ll also find sake, spirits and non-alcoholic options.
