Great ambiance, staff that go the extra mile and look after you from start to finish. Delicious food and wine with a varied menu. Owner that takes pride in his product....what's not to love about this place. Head and shoulders above other Bearwood restaurants and in my opinion far better than the City centre premium Indian restaurants.

Went to Purnima's last night and had another wonderful experience. The boss Roli is so welcoming and friendly, food is consistently always excellent and the King Prawns are the best in Brum. Cant wait to go back, already planning my next meal.

Ate here when it was Teknaf and was really worried that it wouldn't be as good when it is was taken over. We regularly have take out and occasionally visit and it is always perfect. The service is great, the decor is fine and the food is fantastic. The best Indian restaurant in Birmingham!

My wife wanted her birthday dinner at Purnima's due to our previous enjoyable meals there and it didn't disappoint! The new menu added to the occasion and all of our choices were very well prepared and served by Roly and his team. In addition to the celebratory bottle of prosecco we shared an excellent bottle of Pinot Gris and a... More

You have to try the King Prawn Ansari, it's delicious! Staff are always friendly and service is quick and efficient. It is quite expensive but I think it's worth paying extra for a guaranteed lovely meal.

I took my friends to Purnima today, 10 March 2015, and can honestly say that it was a delightful experience. The proprietor, Roli, was a welcoming and informative host, guiding us gently through informed choices. He advised us to try a white wine to accompany our food and it was spot on - it really did enhance the food. He... More
