It doesn’t get much cooler than Blind Tiger. Found on Seel Street, close to Liverpool Central in the Ropewalks precinct, this speakeasy bar and restaurant has already gained a huge following despite its rather recent opening. Beautifully decorated throughout, with dark red colours, mahogany furnishings and Oriental-inspired artwork, the dining area is simply stunning. Regardless of whether you stop by for a cocktail with friends or plan to have a full meal, you’ll fall in love with this chic bar and restaurant in the city centre.
It’s all about the dim sum at Liverpool’s Blind Tiger. Try the Shanghai-style pork dumplings with ginger soy sauce, the homemade prawn & chicken sui mai, or mixed vegetable gyozas with hot and sour ketchup. Bigger appetites are encouraged to go for the vegetable pad Thai with chopped roasted peanuts and fresh lime or the crisp confit duck leg with cucumber, spring onion, hoisin and pancakes. Be sure to order one of Blind Tiger’s signature cocktails (the menu changes often) or order a classic Singapore Sling, made with Beefeater Gin, Heering cherry liqueur, Benedictine liqueur, grenadine, fresh pineapple, lime juice and soda. Reservations are a must for this popular Ropewalks and city centre spot!
Great atmosphere, amazing food and really friendly staff!! The live music was brill. I would highly recommend the salt and pepper sweet potatoe fries! I know I will definitely be back!
Great food and drink, will go again soon, Japanese rum was excellent, the food was delicious and served promptly, staff were very helpful and friendly
Lovely food and atmosphere. I was a little disappointed with a mix up... the waiter told us that a meal he had brought was sticky chicken when in fact it was tofu bao and my friend started to eat it which meant when the waitress pointed out the mistake i only had half of my meal left and unfortunately we didnt get a chance to rectify this in any way so just carried on with our night. Other than this slight hickup we enjoyed our cocktails and food.
The service was excellent from start to finish. The food was amazing, couldn't fault it, and the restaurant itself was gorgeous and clean. I would highly recommend!
My partner and I visited Blind Tiger on a Friday night for dinner and first of all were taken aback by how beautiful this basement restaurant is decorated. It is really well done and feels very intimate and luxurious to sit in. We ordered a Singapore Sling and an Asian Salvation which were nice, beautifully presented but tasted rather lacking in alcohol. The food is good and since the plates are small and fairly prices you can try a good spread of the menu between a pair. The highlights were a Thai Curry that was a special, Salt & Pepper Chicken Spring Rolls and the Roast Pork Char Sui Bun.The staff are very nice and we received really good service, a dish we ordered was forgotten about and we had to ask after we had finished the rest of our food but they apologised and got it straight out to us. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them for a lovely night.
We really wanted to eat at Blind Tiger. Regretfully, my partner is allergic to shrimp and crustaceans, and we were told that they could not be sure that any dish had traces of these foods. Therefore, in the end we could not eat anything. So, if you have one of these allergies, be aware that you cannot eat in this restaurant. However, they were very friendly and we were treated great (they applied a discount on drinks, and the waiters were very nice). Thus, we cannot say anything about the food, but we will definitely we will be back for a drink. The atmosphere is amazing!
Really enjoyed Blind Tiger, Asian Tapas with a twist. Everything was fantastic including the cocktails which were very tasting and inventive! We had prawn crackers, Pork Char Sui bun, Japanese Chicken (cannot remember name - like goujons), Aromatic Duck Pancakes and Spring Roll. Only reason I am not rating a 6 is because the Japanese chicken was bland - everything else was fantastic. Great service also including a very friendly and professional Maitre D. Would highly recommend!
I can't complain about any aspect of our evening last night. We were slightly late following our taxi getting lost and our booking was honoured after a call to the restaurant. Service was impeccable and our food and drink came fast and each item was delicious! Strongly recommend the salt and pepper spring rolls!!!! My boyfriend ordered a cocktail which the restaurant couldn't prepare (they were missing an ingredient) but this was taken off the bill and he was given a free alternative. The manager was extremely apologetic, but there was no need at all, we had no complaints. 100% returning
Had an amazing dinner and drinks here.food is exceptional must try the spring rolls and all the steamed dumplings there is nothing on menu that is not fantastic. Cocktails are well worth the money they are made with love and the oncologist is just so clued up if you want a special experience of flavours. The manager is just wonderful and Kate our waitress was just so helpful.this place is a cool hip place and the best eating establishment in my opinion.will be back very soon
Great atmosphere. Service was friendly and efficient. We chose cocktails and mocktails as well as food from the vegan menu as well as from the standard menu. The food was delicious, creative and freshly cooked. Very nicely presented. Who would have thought that humble mushrooms on toast could be quite so tasty! Tofu tempura was a real hit!
Great looking place. Good food and drinks. The live singer was really good but my only criticism would be that it was way too loud, I couldn't actually have a conversation with my friends because we couldn't hear each other or even our own voices. We only got to talk whenever she went for a break and the usual background music was on. Would go again if the live singer turned it down a bit...
Great venue with a great vibe. Fantastic cocktails and excellent service, especially Abby and Dan. Live music and quirky interior design makes this a memorable place. Well done Blind Tiger!
Wasn't quite what we were expecting... when we arrived, we were taken to sit at the end of another party's table who were already very drunk and singing. The food, though nice, was brought out in such a haphazard way, one dish arrived without the main ingredient and it took three requests to get our cocktails - which was baffling considering the waiting on staff were constantly asking if we needed anything...
Lovely food and even better cocktails. The only reason why I wouldn't rate it 6, is because of the lack of attention to the booking. The booking was for a birthday and we didn't even get a mention of a happy birthday. Minus this, all staff were attentive. Would definitely recommend to large or small groups.
Really enjoyed our first visit to Blind Tiger. Relaxed atmosphere and food is excellent, especially the salt and pepper sweet potato fries. Will definitely be going back.
we ordered snacks and several dim sum dishes to share, our waiter was really knowledgeable and offered advice on the best dishes for us to share, all the food came quickly and as it was prepared meaning it was fresh and hot but a little staggered (we enjoyed this though)
Was unable to hear ourselves talking thru dinner because the music was so loud. Yes ok to have loud for the show but not 1.5 hours before show during chatting time. We had to shout or stay silent Just needs to be a bit lower Everything else really great
Great restaurant: Food is tasty and reasonably priced, good cocktail menu/newspaper which includes some very photogenic drinks, friendly service and lovely decor - would recommend if you're in the city and fancy some dim sum! Also if it's a sunny day worth noting they have a small beer garden
Some portions were tiny - wanted the rest of the food that we'd ordered to come out together after seeing the size of the first portion and was told can't do this. Nice venue and reasonable prices - most of the food was reasonable size portions (4 out of 6 plates). Would go again, but stay away from the dumplings ;-)
Gorgeous food and a great atmosphere. Once a month they have a comedy/burlesque act and it was amazing! Something for everyone. I would recommend the salt and pepper sweet potato fries. They were to die for. All reasonably priced.
