Jake says: “Okay, so personally, I’d say the best takeaway in Birmingham is in the bottom end of Moseley. It’s called the Diwan. And it’s Indian. So obviously being Birmingham, it’s got the Balti and whatnot and - just if anything - it tastes really good and the portions are wham so what what’s not to like? So, yeah, I’d say if you’re in Brum and you’re looking for something like that, then check it out.”

Katie says: “I would have to say Marius in Sheldon. That’s that’s my favourite -best pizza that I’ve ever had. I know Domino’s is great but can’t be a Marius. Not very greasy. Just nice. I like that.”

Jaz says: “I like the Sea Garden in Hamstead that is really fantastic - top notch, really great.”

Tanya says: “Filthy Wings. They’re really nice, yeah. So if you ordered there they’ve got like a special, like, recipe on their own wings. For an example. It’s called on the Queen’s Arms. They opened up a vegetarian kitchen. Yeah, quite cheap. So not too expensive. Quite nice and all with vegetarian stuff. So that’s maybe a good example as well.”
