“Amazing Carribean Food”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

I have been here on several
occasions and love the food. The portion sizes are great so you never leave hungry. The staff are friendly and attentive. Finally it's really good value for money and there homemade milkshake are the best I've ever had.

“Excellent lunch. Efficient and friendly service. Why have I not been here before?”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Would definitely recommend and will be returning! Had Jerk chicken with rice and salad - really tasty and well presented. Good recommendations. Shame did not have room for dessert!

“What a great restaurant”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

I am a firm favorite of 24 Carat. We go there at least once every two months for great home cooked food. The chef and owner is a great cook - his speciality is Caribbean food but also does a wide range of other dishes - great lasagna for instance. His wife is a delightful waitress and makes you feel most welcome in a genuine sense - not the false Yanquized 'How are YOU!!' The ambience is also great - a converted jewellry workshop hidden down a back alley of the main road opposite the police station. Surprisingly we always seem to manage to find a place to park right outside despite the busy traffic. If you are a cone-freak and only feel SAFE in chain restaurants then don't bother. But if you have a bit of individuality in your genes, then this is the place to go. Would that more restaurants in Brum were 'independents' like this.

Came again to The Jewellery Quarter and again visited the 24 Carat Bistro and was not disappointed, the food is delicious, really enjoy the Lasagne and the staff and the atmosphere are wonderful, so friendly and relaxing.

It made our trip to Birmingham even more enjoyable
