Fantastic food but service is what really counts. Roly is front of house and would rival any hotel manager in the service he provides his customers. Everyone is treated like a returning friend and that is why it's so hard to get a table!! By and far the best food and service to be had in Birmingham.

We celebrated my birthday on Friday evening, we could not have picked a better restaurant! The food, service and ambiance were perfect. What I love about this restaurant is they use the correct wine glasses to get the maximum taste out of your wine, not the standard glasses where the flavour of the wine is lost. The wine menu has...

Can't praise this restaurant enough. Fantastic service from such friendly staff. We had 7 different starters and mains and everyone would give the meal 5 stars. Well worth a visit if you are a lover of Indian cuisine and you won't be disappointed. Thank you to all the staff for a most enjoyable meal.

I have visited this resturant on many occasions and I have always had excellent service. On our most recent we visit we had to wait for our table to be ready, we were asked if we would like a drink whilst we were waiting. To my surprise these were complimentary. We only had to wait 10 mins and we didn't... More

Visited Purnima with friends last night. Friendly service, superb food and great house wine. Roli was very welcoming and attentive. 10/10, can't fault it. Already looking forward to my next visit.

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.
