Exploring BirminghamEdit

Practical information and resourcesEdit


  • THAI BISTRO - Probably the best Thai restaurant in the Detroit suburban area. There are 5 levels of spice, a great selection of food and great ambience and deco inside. The restaurant is located in the heart of Birmingham right acrosss from the Palladium theater. Phone: 248.644.2181

*Big Rock Chophouse is a fabulous restaurant just outside downtown Birmingham, in the Rail District. Obviously, they're known for their steaks (make sure to order it with the house zip sauce), but anything on the menu is delectable! The atmostphere is classy, yet comfortable - you'll love it! Would highly recommend making reservations. Phone: 248.647.7774

  • [1] Sy Thai is a fantastic restaurant offering the Thai experience that is second to none. A unique soup comes with every meal and the pad thai is their showcase dish with enough food for three people. Perhaps what is most unique about the restaurant is their modest prices despite their Birmingham zip code. Phone: 248.258.9830
