A really excellent meal. I had one of the best Chicken Jalfrezi's I think I have ever tasted. I went with my friend who was a local and had been there before. The owner not only suggested something off menu but cooked it as well. It was awesome. A very good reason why this is in the top 20 restaurants... More

You receive a warm welcome from the staff, who are very attentive. The food was excellent, very tasty and nicely presented. All in all, a great restaurant for Bearwood. Just wish that end of the High Street was more presentable.

I waited 90 minutes for a delivery. When it arrived, the two side dishes were quarter full! Not a good service or quality of food when it arrived. Avoid ordering food from here!

Initially my neighbour took me to Purnima resturant for a meal, tbh being a veg I am very critical when it comes to resturant food. Roli was our first point of contact and he was so pleasant and nice. He listened to how I wanted my veg dish cooked and how spicy I like me meals. He took notice and... More

My wife and I visited the Purnima restaurant on recommendation last Friday. The tables were neatly laid with crisp white table cloths, the welcome was friendly and polite. We found the food and the service to be excellent. The atmosphere of the restaurant, could however in my opinion be improved if the 1980's American soft rock background music was changed.... More

We went on a recommendation and were not disappointed. We were looked after by Roli who was attentative and helpful all evening, and a pleasure to chat to - he ensured the food was what we wanted, even though some items were not on the menu. The food was lovely, and beautfully presented, and the atmosphere was calm and relaxed,... More

Have been here a fair number of times with family now. A great warm welcome every time. The food itself is what you need to know about - clean crisp, fresh, tasty and flavours and styles you just simply do not get around in Birmingham's other restaurants. Mushrooms and Paneer, freshly cooked in garlic, chilli and coriander recommended, as are... More
