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!

Taken as a birthday treat and first experience was really impressed. Based near to latifs in Birmingham from the outside you wouldn't have a good impression. Once inside its a pleasant experience. The staff are excellent and friendly. With a straw on the ceiling, white fluffy rugs and cosy relaxed atmosphere. They are typically polish but speak excellent English and... More

We booked a table for 8 people on a Saturday night for a birthday. None of us had tried polish food before and had seen the great reviews on here. I loved the interior design of the place. True polish authentic feel to it which was great however the building itself isn't the best and neither are the small toilets... More

A wonderful little restaurant, beautifully decorated. The food was superb and the portions were huge so bring an appetite! The service was friendly and excellent and the whole evening a joy. I look forward to returning to try the rest of the menu.

Went here last Friday with 2 girlfriends. Restaurant is tucked away behind Moor Street Station in Peaky Blinders part of Brum. We felt very safe though walking to the restaurant having parked in the Bullring. Had a lovely evening here. Rustic, homely decor. Attentive waiter, varied menu with lots of hearty fare, decent selection of wines/beers/vodkas. We all chose things... More
