A busy restaurant in Bearwood, modern decor and a great drinks selection. Food here was very good. We visited on a Saturday, and although busy, service was not too slow. Nice selection of traditional and more modern dishes, and we all agreed the food was well flavoured. Nice atmosphere too as the restaurant is bustling.

We had our daughters 18th birthday at this restaurant on Sunday. There were 32 of us including 3 under eight and we couldn't have had better service if we had been in a five star restaurant. The food was excellent but Rolly (the main man) could show other restaurant owners a thing or two about customer service, nothing is too... More

We visited Purnima last night for a second time after a first time amazing visit. It was for an occasion as it was my brothers 24th. We called up to book a table and there was no problem at all. The manager ensured that we would have a table waiting for us. He was not wrong. He was there waiting... More

This is a lovely restaurant with modern decor. The restaurant is easy to find on Bearwood High Street, close to a car park just around the corner. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and explained all the different dishes and spices. The food was served hot and was delicious. The Lamb Tikka Jalfrezi was especially nice. The drinks and...

As ever an excellent evening early on a Saturday ( MAY 31st ) went with friends straight from the theatre. Have never had a poor quality meal and the owner will often suggest something a little different, being veggie myself I find this gives me different food experiences rather than sticking to the same tasty safe meal. Service is excellent,... More

We visited Purnima's a couple of weeks a go and was very satisfied with the visit. I used to live in smethwick, so was longing to find a curry house like there used to be in the late 90's. You know the sort, Menu in the window, Indian music playing, take your own drinks and more importantly...food served in an... More

We're a regular at Purnima's but felt I had to leave a review after our last utterly brilliant dining experience there a few weeks ago. It was quite quiet in there as it was a Sunday evening. We ordered our usual Butter Chicken, Tarka Dhall, and other veggie sides. This time the manager recommend a couple of changes to our... More
