Birmingham neighborhood restaurant shuts as commentator says locals have ‘no sense of adventure’

A Moseley restaurant has closed its doors ‘permanently’ for the second time in a year. Kimchi on Woodbridge Road told customers it had stopped trading via a sign in its window.

The eatery closed last summer before reopening again to the public when it gained a number of top reviews from customers who called it ‘a true gem’ and ‘amazing’. Now it says that it has closed for good, asking customers to support its branch in Selly Oak.

The sign says: “We have closed our Moseley branch permanently however our Selly Oak restaurant is open seven days a week from 11am until 10pm. I am sorry for any inconvenience.”

A member of the Everything Moseley Facebook group posted a picture of the sign along with a sad face emoji expressing their disappointment at the news. Other Moseley residents shared their sadness to hear the news.

Gillian Abraham said: “Sorry to hear this,” while Ben Randle added: “What a shame, every time we ate there we were never disappointed.”

Paul Gault added: “This is the problem with opening up a cafe or restaurant in Moseley, it’s got so much already that nothing new really stands a chance. Look at folks like these.”
