We all love a cheeky Nandos, but if you’re looking for something a little different, and wondering what Coventry’s got to offer – we’ve put our heads together to compile our top 5 must-visits, whether you’re after a light bite for lunch, a sit down dinner for two, or somewhere to get together with friends for a meal to celebrate the end of exams, there’s plenty of great places to eat in Coventry.
Sultan restaurant is a Turkish restaurant located on Fargosford street, a short walk from the city center, and right next to FarGo village. You may be tempted to visit Twisted Barrel afterwards, their menu boasts a broad range of hot and cold starters, a variety of main meals and a good selection of vegetarian options too.
Blue Orchid is my go-to Indian restaurant in Coventry. Located in Earlsdon it is also only a short walk outside of the city center. Its menu is filled with your favourite currys – and if you’re not feeling eating out, take away is available too! It’s atmospheric, and has a cosy feel, but plenty of space to seat large groups – booking recommended!
Yaki offers a variety of east-asian dishes at affordable prices. It’s opposite the bus station, so right in the city center, and in my experience fewer students go here in comparison to other east-asian restaurants, but I’ve no idea why! Their menu is very broad, with dishes from Japan, China and Korea to name just a few, the portions are very generous and the food is delicious.
Sovrano Cafee is located right in the city center and is perfect for light bites, a full meal or just a coffee (they even do Nutella hot chocolate!). Offering a vegetarian friendly Italian menu, its definitely worth checking out, especially if you need something to warm you up in these winter months.
We love Rising Cafe, its quirky interior, delicious light lunches and yummy milkshakes are all served at very-student friendly prices. Even better – it’s all in aid of a fantastic cause, with 100% of proceeds going to the work Betel UK does – supporting vulnerable homeless men and women.
