Roqitoz Urban Diner is a HMC Certified Restaurant located on Alum Rock Road in Birmingham. They also have another Restaurant on LadyPool Road in Birmigham. Roqitoz “promises good food and good times” which is definitely the case there as we thoroughly enjoyed our first time dining there Alhamdulillah. Roqitoz serve up Gourmet food with an Urban twist such as juicy Burgers, (yes please!), Piri Piri Chicken, Roast Lamb as well as Shredded Chicken meals which, might i say, stands out from the Menu! We have also included Roqito’s Menu as shown below to save you the hassle of being indecisive upon arrival!
Roqitoz Birmigham have street parking outside. I advise you just check the times depending on when you go. I love the cute sign in the window which reads ‘Good Vibes Only’. It catches your eyes as you take a first glance through the windows!
As you take a seat inside, you will find cool sayings such as ‘Good food, Good times.’ Perfect backdrop to take cool photos of your food! Throughout Roqitoz, the interior is filled with lots of lights with cool bulbs that add a pop of colour in contrast to the main lighting!
Absolutely love that the place is simple but also has cool decor to compliment the space.
To start things off, you cant go wrong with a big dollop of Hummus with olives and pita bread (£3.50) – I love hummus so this was a must. You get a big portion which is always nice! It kept us going till the food arrived. It also went nicely with the mains.
Chicken Wings (£3.00) – We were pleasantly surprised by how yummy the wings were. You get to choose your spice (lemon and herb, mild, medium, hot etc,) they are then grilled really well. The wings were juicy and tasted amazing. I definitely recommend you try this!
Lamb Chops (£9.00) are always our “go to” option. We just love them but often they don’t hit the spot. Here they definitely did. They were tender, flavoursome and not overcooked.
We got them with peri peri fries and corn on the cob – they were both great and filling. The corn on the cob was fabulous, it was full of flavour but also had the BBQ feel I crave. The fries weren’t too greasy which was great!!
The Hench Burger (£10.00) was my personal favourite. You get to opt for 2 filling e.g chicken, lamb or shredded chicken. You can also mix and match. I went for a chicken breast topped with shredded chicken and it was the best decision ever. The shredded chicken was super delicious and went really well with the bun and the chicken breast. The flavour was unique and it was so filling. I’ll definitely be going back for more because I’ve been thinking about it ever since. I got my burger with sweet potato fries which were also delicious and not oily at all.
The little sister wanted to go for a sizzler. She opted for the Roasted Lamb (£12.00) with mash and vegetables which all came on a sizzler. I was impressed with the portion size as there was enough to take it home and eat the rest. Alhamdulilah this was also delicious. The shredded lamb had a unique taste which wasn’t overpowering and went well with the sides (which there was plenty of).
I must say, I’ve tried lots of different meals at different restaurants across the UK and i will be honest that I was amazed by the food at Roqitoz. I look forward to visiting again soon. The prices of the food, drinks etc is quite reasonable and not overly priced. It’s a nice place to bring your friends and family and share amazing food with the nice decor! Alhamdulilah we loved it all. Have you been to Roqitoz? If so, let us know in the comments below the food you enjoyed and what you got!
