The Grand Hotel Birmingham partners with Michelin-starred Indian restaurant

The Grand Hotel Birmingham has announced a partnership with Opheem – the only Indian restaurant outside London to hold a Michelin star. 

As the two local hospitality leaders team up, guests will have the chance to stay at the hotel and dine at Opheem through a new Gourmet Getaway package, which includes a two-night stay, dinner at Opheem and afternoon tea in the hotel’s cocktail lounge, Madeleine. 

Led by chef Aktar Islam, who featured on MasterChef and has been a Great British Menu winner, Opheem takes a modern approach to fine dining using a base of Indian flavours. 

“Birmingham’s reputation as a superlative culinary destination continues to build, and this partnership is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion,” says Adam Bateman, Culinary Director of The Grand Hotel Birmingham. “We’re delighted to introduce Opheem to our guests — this is a world-class experience right here in Birmingham.” 

Aktar Islam adds: “I love The Grand. It’s a fantastic place to introduce people to Birmingham and the perfect partner for Opheem. I’m delighted to work with Adam and the team at The Grand to deliver the ultimate experience for those wanting to stay and dine in two of the best destinations in the city.”
