Expect sassy pan Asian street food and party vibes


A new pan-Asian restaurant and cocktail lounge joins the Arcadian late November adding glamorous vibes to the forever-growing Birmingham food scene.

Founded by Rory May, the 70-cover restaurant is setting up home on the upper balcony of the Arcadian Centre. Inspired by the glamour of Ibiza, London and Dubai, it promises to be one of the hottest spots in town.

Expect a colourful, tropical theme to provide a vibrant backdrop against which to eat, drink and party.  Think flamingos, flowers and jungle foliage! Taking centre-stage is a swish circular cocktail bar encapsulated by the main restaurant, a 10-seater private dining room and hanging entertainment deck.

The team has conjured up a menu which is an exciting mix of classic eastern cuisines fused with western dishes.

Lunch and dinner consists of tasty small plates to share such as sushi rolls, bau buns, wagu sliders, beef/fish tataki, chicken karaage to larger more hearty dishes such as Japanese fish and chips, Thai soup bowls and curries, steak and plenty more in between.

For those wanting an alternative afternoon tea, you can try their weekend Par-Tea menu, offering an Asian twist to your traditional cucumber sandwiches and a teapot full of cocktails for that mid afternoon burst of energy.

For early birds, the brunch menu ranges from healthy smoothie bowls and fresh juices to indulgent truffle eggs on sourdough and Korean fried chicken pancakes.

The drinks menu has a selection of wines, bubbles and spirits along with classic cocktails or for those a bit more daring, try one of their own crafted specials.

Jo Kinsella, Centre Manager of the Arcadian said:  “As one of Birmingham’s leading leisure destinations, we are thrilled to welcome Rozu, which is an exciting new concept in dining. We are proud of our vibrant and diverse range of high-quality restaurants, bars and clubs, with Rozu adding to the mix.”

Julia Robinson, Southside BID Manager added, “Rozu will bring something brand new to our district and we’re excited to welcome another new crowd of visitors to Southside.”

Due to open late November, Rozu will undoubtedly be the number one hot spot for townies looking for after work cocktails, a tapas lunch or a lush evening dinner. So spread your wings and experience the unabashed joy of Rozu.
