“Great tasting food with excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

I visited this restaurant at the weekend wih 3 friends.
We all found the food very tasty and the service was superb. The waiters were very knowledgable about the food that was on the menu and didnt need to write down our complicated order.
Drinks were good too with a long list of cocktails to choose from.
It is slightly more expensive than your average Indian restaurant, but this is not your average Indian restaurant and worth every penny.
I would definately visit this restaurant again next time I am in Birmingham.

“Great Meal, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a lovely Indian restaurant. The food was delicious - a contemporary take on traditional dishes. Having had a recent meal in a michelin star Indian restaurant in London, the Pushkar beat it easily on menu, quality and service.

Have a drink at their cocktail bar first - there is a good cocktail list but they will make anything you like.

The interior of the restaurant is modern and comfortable. It is very buzzy - with lots of chatter and laughter. It is a popular restaurant so make sure that you book in advance. There is a private area for large parties so you may want to think about booking that.

The wine list is reasonably priced and with good choices, starting at £19.95. But there is the usual Kingfisher etc.

I can recommend the Kabab platter (for two) and the Chaat to start with - we shared one of each between 4 of us. The waiter made sure that we didn't over order (our usual mistake) and just as well that he did because the portions are good. All of our mains were great. We couldn't fit in a dessert.

A very sweet touch was the decorated plate with cake and a candle for my husband's birthday at the end of the meal - a lovely surprise.

The service is particularly attentive - we had Huni looking after us and he did a great job. All of the staff are professional and friendly, even though they are clearly working hard in this very busy restaurant.
