Whether you're after a great hunk of steak, a sizzling bowl of noodles, or a Greek salad with homemade tzatziki on the side, Walsall's restaurants will always deliver. The town centre has been on the up in recent years, attracting masses of shoppers, and this boom has filtered into Walsall's thriving restaurant scene. Not many places in the Black Country offer such a wide selection of gourmet cuisine, and all of the best places to eat in town can be booked in no time when you reserve a table with Quandoo.
Walsall's restaurants have a really cosmopolitan flavour about them – more so than many other similarly sized towns in the region. That's great news for fans of European food, with stellar Greek, Italian, and general Mediterranean venues vying for attention. If you're in the north of Walsall, Italian restaurants like Gio's in Rycroft conjure up a little slice of bella Italia, with an unusually large proportion of veggie (and vegan) menu options. And, in the centre of town, you can take your pick between marvellous moussakas or pan-fried Mediterranean fish.
However, Asia doesn't lag behind on Walsall's restaurants scene, not by a long chalk. Birmingham might attract more national attention, with its balti maestros, but Walsall's Indian restaurants are just as accomplished. Places like the President Lounge offer a blend of Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine, letting diners pick from classic British favourites like tikka dishes, and lesser-known fish curries cooked to Bengali recipes. But with other fine curry houses from Bentley to Bloxwich, spice fans aren't going to feel let down by their local eateries selection.
One culinary area that has really been rising in recent years is much less exotic: traditional British food. And if British cuisine is your priority, Walsall's restaurants are blazing a trail in the Midlands region. On Quandoo's local database, you'll find comfortable brasseries in the centre of town like Arbor Lights, where specialities include kedgeree cooked with locally sourced leeks and homemade chicken Kievs, but there are plenty of options nearby to savour the best of British cuisine.
