My partner and I came here for a friends birthday meal, so there was a large group of us. Neither of us had tried Polish food so did not know what to expect. The waitress was very polite and efficient, the decor is wonderful with a nice vibe and the food, well that is the star of the show! Hearty,... More

Very eccentric hidden polish restaurant attached to a polish working men's club. Exquisitely decorated in solid wood and sheepskin rugs. Interesting menu translations such as polish trough. I like it a lot. Food was outstanding. Perfect perogi, potato pancakes with the softest slow cooked beef stew. This is comfort food at its best. I'm surprised more don't go in for... More

Visited this place last year and kept meaning to post a review. Food was excellent place was very clean and service was good. We went midweek and it was pretty full. I would recommend giving this place a go .

Some friends proposed this restaurant as very nice place to eat in Birmingham and I also checked some very nice reviews about this place, so I decided to try it. The atmosphere was very nice and the stuff friendly. However, the food quality was very poor. We had the chicken kebab, the spare pork ribs and some dumplings. The dumplings... More

This restaurant is a lot of fun to eat in and the decor inside is brill. The food was nice but I could tell my wedges were frozen and my pork was dry. My dad had the herring which he enjoyed and I shared the potato pancakes which were a bit oily for my mum and I. The staff were... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time last night. A great experience. Friendly waitress and good food. My first experience of Polish food, probably not the healthiest food in the world but very tasty. I would recommend Karczma for a different and enjoyable night out.

I was visiting a friend in Birmingham and she suggested that we go check out this place. According to my friend it's difficult to get a table ad hoc because they are usually fully booked already but we managed to get a table for the two of us and what a treat it was! We were served a delicious, sweet... More

I've been 4 times now and still love the place. The food is excellent and the staff are very nice. It's a bit hidden but surprisingly about 2 minutes walk from Moor Street station. You must try it out!

Have eaten here on a couple of occasions, a meal for two and also with a large stag party. We have always received a friendly welcome and the food and ingredients are fantastic. If you fancy something different then this is the place. I can highly recommend the honey mead, and the decor is brilliant!
