Grand Central: Where to grab lunch above Birmingham New Street

by Sophie for Grand Central

Grab lunch when you are in a hurry at Grand Central 

It’s not easy to squeeze in a lunch break, but it’s often necessary for our health and sanity. That’s why Grand Central’s restaurants and cafés have a ‘Grab & Go’ offering which enables those who can’t take advantage of a long and lazy lunch, to experience quality, tasty food which is all available to grab and go in your lunch break or later throughout the day. Whether you’re lucky enough to have an hour or even half an hour allotted to lunch, here’s a few quick AND delicious lunch options that won’t leave your wallets empty either.



You can now have your pizza and eat it too – in under 10 minutes with Francesca’s stonebaked pizzas hand cooked in just 4 minutes! They’re quick, easy and seriously tasty. Choose from a variety of toppings, including; Margherita, Pepperoni, Prosciutto di Parma, Prosciutto Cotto, Tonno and Cipolle, and Vegetarian.

Yo! Sushi


Yo! Sushi launched its takeaway only menu at the end of April. ‘Tokyo To Go’ provides a range of dishes for all sushi-lovers including the popular Chibi Maki Box – including a selection of small rolls; 6 kappa maki, 3 tuna maki, 3 avocado maki, 3 salmon maki. YUM!

Yaki Nori


Think fun, authentic and tasty Japanese food. Think delicious & affordable lunch. Yaki Nori is offering their customers an option of 3 different boxes to takeaway. Varying from £4.99-£5.99, Yaki Nori fanatics will be spoiled for choice as they can choose from a Bento box, rice/noodle box and Ramen noodle soup. It’s an easy food to pick up and take back to the office, or wherever you choose, and there’s plenty of it to share too!

Tapas Revolution

Churros from Tapas Revolution

Omar Allibhoy has brought his delicious Churros to Birmingham and they are taking the city by storm. For just £2.95 you can take away a cone of churros, with a separate pot of warm chocolate sauce. They may be naughty, but they are a tasty treat to get you through the working week!



The only Vietnamese restaurant in Birmingham has proven very popular since its launch and it’s no surprise why. ‘Pho to go’ is now being offered from their Grand Central restaurant, which makes eating their delicious salads, soups and noodles even easier! The food is cooked fresh to order so it’s well worth the few minutes wait.

Crepe Affair


What could be better than a crepe on the run? In just minutes, the Crepeaffair team will whip up a sweet or savoury giant pancake of your choice for you to take away. Choose from some savoury favourites including; Mexican Chicken and Hoisin Duck or if you have more of a sweet tooth why not try the Apple Crumble or Merry Berry!



Choose from a Burrito, Naked Burrito or Tacos, and add your own tasty filling as you see fit. With chicken, steak and pork on the menu, you can either really indulge or be good and go for the ‘healthier’ option. A selection of salads, beans and toppings will leave you wanting to throw your own Mexican Fiesta at the office every day!

Paul UK


Fancy a sarnie? A quick and easy option to grab on your break. Paul’s delicious baguettes are packed full with fresh ingredients. Top tip: try the Sandwich Roti de Boeuf, seeded bread filled with roast beef, gherkins and mustard mayo topped with Batavia salad – We will definitely be keeping the Hovis in the bread bin this week!

Square Pie


If there’s one thing I know about Brummies, it’s that they love their traditional English grub! Square Pie is host to a selection of delicious pies, which you can accompany with mash, mushy peas and lashings of gravy! One of our personal favourites is the tasty bite-size canapies which are available in Steak & Ale, Chicken & Mushroom, Cheese & Onion and Spinach, sweet potato & goats cheese flavours.

Even our favourite easy diner is available for takeaway! We were delighted when we stumbled across this gem and discovered that we can satisfy all our burger needs in less time than we thought. You could even take the Big Bubba’s Bacon N’Cheese back to your desk – who knew!

All of the restaurants inside Grand Central offer a take away service from breakfast right through to dinner, so there really is something for everyone! In addition to the restaurants we’ve just mentioned, Nandos, Giraffe, Handmade Burger Co., Caffe Concerto, Costa Coffee, CocomacsJoe + the Juice and Carluccios also offer every meal off their menu for customers to take away.
