    O’ Brian’s Sandwich Bar: Good looking sandwich bar

    by Imbi Written Nov 25, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    O’ Brian’s Sandwich Bar is situated in Sherbourne Arcade. The look of its is very interesting as it like an old island and a bridge connects it with arcade floor. O’ Brian’s Sandwich Bar also have different corner named to different country and cities. I remember seeing Birmingham, Chicago, Glasgow, Singapore and Belfast. It seems to me that place remains busy most of the time.

    Desi Dish: A new place to eat

    by denise16 Written Oct 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This recently opened restaurant is a comtempory design with a very warm welcome. Desi is Indian for homemade or authentic. It makes a pleasant change to see such a varied menu with over 90 dishes to the menu.
    Students get a 10% discount on dining in and a further 5% on take outs~ which is handy because it is close to the university.
    The chef makes a point of coming to speak to guests and ask their opinions. He asks for a negative and a posiutive and claims that todays negatvies will be tomorrows positives.
    A restaurant favoured by the local Indian community, so that it always a sign of authenticity. Specialises in SOuthern Indian and Punjabi style food with lots of recipes from the Chef's Grandmother.

    Favorite Dish: Allo Zeera Dry potatoes cooked with cumin seeds. Lovely is the best word to describe them.
    Dhingri Mattar Masala- mushrooms and snow peas was also good but a little hot for my personal taste.
    The pineapple pickle didn't not work for me or my friend, but you might like it.

    by denise16 Updated Nov 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    taken from their webpage

    A delightful Indian resturant that has recently won awards for its food. The outside is decorated with hanging baskets and is one of the medival building in Spon Street.
    Inside there are lots of nocks and crannies, plenty of opportunity for that romantic meal. Upstairs you can book a curtained off area, where you recline on cushions. Another room is called the Kama Sutra.
    The food was wodnerful and the service first class. Choice of over 100 dishes

    Wing Wah Chinese Restaurant: Eat as much as you like.

    Wing Wah - Coventry

    This big and rather functional Chinese restaurant offers fantastic value if all-you-can-eat buffets are your thing, choice includes teppenyaki, sushi, sashami, Japanese, Chinese duck etc. Although the drinks are over priced. I found the food to be of a high standard and have always found the staff to be polite.

    Favorite Dish: Chinese Buffet - take your pick

    enjoying teh shisha pipe after a meal

    looking for somewhere a little different, this is the place. Downstairs is laid out like a traditional resturant but upstairs you can lounge on the floor cushions if your back can take it.
    Round of a meal with a shisha (bong pipe) all legal. A place where people meet to chat, smoke and drink coffee.

    Favorite Dish: Any of the vegetarian food. Staff are very willing to make suggestions.

    Starbucks: Coffee with Lady Godiva

    by grayfo Written Sep 19, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Starbucks is a worldwide chain of coffee shops with branches selling over ten types of coffee, including cappuccino, latte and mocha. They also sell a selection of sandwiches, croissants, cakes and muffins.

    This branch is everything you’d expect from a Starbucks. Good coffee, some nice looking cakes and a busy chatty atmosphere. Being the only Starbucks in the city centre this has become a victim of its own success and is always too full and busy.

    Flamingo Bar & Grill: Don't be fooled by the name

    by denise16 Updated Jun 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I would have associated the name of this new resturant with Spannish food rather than Indian. However, this place is fantastic. They specialise in sizzler style platters.
    Its got a family feel and many people come in family groups, children are welcome. There is also an area to play pool and have a drink. The decore is modern. Gets busy at weekends so booking is advisable.
    Staff are really helpful in explaning the large menu. Don't expect to find your usual Indian favourites. Lots of Punjabi flavours, there is even a selection of punjabi pizzas ~ didn't try so can't say what they are like. Very vibrant place.
    UPDATE Recently revisited this place one evening, our evening was totally spoilt by the level of noise, the music was extremely loud, conversation was impossible and teh attitude of staff/management was "so what, put up with it" well we wont be going there again. JUNE 2006

    Favorite Dish: The Jeera rice was great and my favourite main dish is the mini vegetarian combi. Portions are 2 sizes small and regular at £6 or £10 approx. A regular would easily do 2-3 people. A small was too much for me and i came out with a take home box.
    Once you have picked your dish you then select the cooking style, my favourites for the veggie food were chilli style and crsipy vegetables. We also had a dish made from vine leaves (can't remember what it's called) it was great. Slightly more than a typical Indian in the area but well worth it for the size & taste.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At weekends Millsy’s is full by 8:00pm, a very popular bar in the heart of Earlsdon. During the day Millsy’s is great for breakfast, lunch or just coffee with friends. In the evening the pizza, pasta and grill selections have something to suit all tastes.

  • nawaz: Avoid at all costs

    by nadine33 Written Dec 4, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have never been to Nawaz before, its an Indian Restaurant based in Far Gosford Street in Coventry, and I had heard that it had previously had a fairly good reputation so I was really looking forward to eating there. It's above an off licence, and being a 'dry' restaurant it was easy enough to grab a bottle of wine before going upstairs. The decor wasn't all that great but it appeared ok. There was a group of 4 guys in the restaurant so I would say that it really catered for singles/couples and those on a tight budget rather than families.

    My fiance and I ordered our food, and although not everyone's cup of tea I am a vegetarian and my fiance is a meat eater. I don't people mind people around me eating meat, nor do I object to cooking meat however I do not want to eat it myself. I ordered a vegetarian balti (which yes is on their menu), and my food turned up, I started to eat and found I had a lump of chicken in my mouth. Oh great it didnt kill me, however what if I had a nut allergy and ordered a nut free meal, and then tasted something with nuts in eat, believe me Nawaz would have a major lawsuit on their hands. Did I complain damn right, and I refused to pay for my food and left the restaurant, but not before I was informed by the waitress'es boyfriend that the chef was new and to night was his last night, and that previously the chef had given him a meat curry when he had ordered a veggie one....Yeah right, likely I believe that...If I owned the restaurant and the chef gave out the worng orders then he would get his marching orders. Avoid theis restaurant at all costs...its not worth it!

    Favorite Dish: Nothing whatsoever

    The Flying Standard: A large, but fine chain pub

    by Airpunk Written Sep 7, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Flying Standard

    People who have visited the one or other chain pub won't be surprised about what's going on here. Some may even know the menu by heart and some others are against visiting these kind of location as they have lost the authenticity of the good old english pub. But in times of globalization , there are times when you just want to be sure of what you get. And with the Flying Standard, I get the standard of a J.D. Wetherspoon pub at a very central location. No f…n' dresscode, no uncomfortable atmosphere – just some bar food and a pint of Stella. The bar staff was very friendly and the food really fine. So, whatelse do you want to relax while you wait for your coach?

    Favorite Dish: I had a veggie burger and two pints of lager. It was right what I needed after having walked all the way from the airport into the city - and the right thing before falling asleep in the coach...
