About Khayyam Restaurant

Khayyam Restaurant, just inside the ring in Birmingham in Ladywood, boldly proclaims itself to be the first Persian restaurant in the city. The first, that is, to offer both Persian food and live music and belly dancing in the city. Make no mistake, this Tenant Street local is at once a great place for classic Iranian food as well as a proper party spot, great for birthdays, work dos and celebrating in style.

More about Khayyam Restaurant, Birmingham

Khayyam Restaurant has a spacious dining area, with room enough for 120 diners and a menu with something to offer them all. The food here errs on the side of the traditional, with Persian dishes like chello khoresht ghorme sabzi and lamb shank baghali polo demonstrating the kitchen’s commitment to serving the classic combination of meat and spice that underpins Iranian dining. Of course, Birmingham diners are well acquainted with the food of the Middle East, but in Tenant Street’s Khayyam Restaurant they delight in the kitchen’s interpretation of the fragrant spices of traditional Persian cooking.

The food, however, is only half the story at Ladywood’s Khayyam Restaurant. The other half, of course, is the music. Home to weekly live music events and belly dance performances, this Tenant Street favourite has rightly built a reputation for being one of the city’s finest party places. Bringing together dancing, music and classic Persian flavours has proved itself to a be winning combination in central Birmingham and diners are effusive in their praise. Perfect for groups and fun for the family, a reservation is a must.

Lovely restaurant, friendly and lively atmosphere, great service and nice live music and belly dancing. We love that we can dance to their nice music all night. And above all the food is absolutely delicious. I love Khayam restaurant and highly recommend it to all who like to try Persian food. If you're not keen on loud music and dancing go there on weekdays. You won't be disappointed with their food.
