A new city-centre branch of popular restaurant Vietnamese Street Kitchen is due to open at Birmingham’s iconic Bullring next month.

Independently owned and family run, the new VSK restaurant joins the Resorts World venue and replaces the now-closed Brindleyplace venue.

The new Bullring site will be set over two floors and includes an upstairs cocktail bar as well as a large dining space below. There's also a heated outdoor terrace to accommodate the new tier-two restrictions.

Diners will be able to enjoy authentic Vietnamese cuisine as well as light bites, drinks and takeaway options in a vibrant, colourful setting inspired by the family’s heritage.

Work is underway to convert the space previously occupied by the Handmade Burger Co chain that closed at the start of the year. The new venture will create over 30 jobs for Birmingham.

Vietnamese Street Kitchen will join only a handful of other independently owned venues in and around Bullring Birmingham, including Indian Streatery Express.

The focus of the new menu is 'sharing'. Street food and small plates will create a Vietnamese tapas-like experience for guests. Much-loved classics such as Pho and Bun Cha Ha Noi will be available too.

Vietnamese Street Kitchen is due to open to guests in early November. Bookings will be live ahead of opening.
