A cosy country-style cottage in the heart of Birmingham, The Karczma offers Polish cuisine made to centuries-old recipes. A glowing review from much-feared critic Jay Rayner champions the Karczma as ‘so good’.

Serving a wholly traditional selection, The Karczma menu spans from stuffed dumplings, warming soups and sizzling grilled kebabs, to classic stews and fresh fish. Favourites at The Karczma in Birmingham include beer-roasted ham hock with fried potatoes and sauerkraut, or sticky spare ribs with crisp salad.A host of favourite eastern European recipes for dessert includes traditional Polish apple cake, pavlova, or chocolate truffon.

A straw-covered ceiling, hefty communal tables and countless animal hides fill the homely dining room at Karczma. Head to the lively bar for a host of chilled beers served in chunky glass tankards.

Boasting 2 dining rooms and a rustic bar lined with fur-topped stools, The Karczma restaurant is a 5-minute walk from Birmingham Moor Street Rail Station and the Bull Ring Shopping Centre.

    The deposit that can only be returned as a voucher was stressful, we spend 20 minutes trying to work out who pays how much and we got it wrong anyway. I wish each person could have paid for themselves and I got the deposit back in cash. The interior of the place was great and the food was good.

    Good location, food and service. Only one thing about the birthday cake, the restaurant should allow the customers to bring the cake themselves. Also the seats are now very comfortable.

    Love the decor! Great service- our Polish waiter was very funny and never kept us waiting. Food was delicious as always- just as good as Babcia's! Favourite dish is without doubt the oscypek to start, pierogi ruskie as a main and finish it off with a glass of cheery vodka (wisniowka)! Wspaniale!

    Great place with extremely tasty food, very nice waiters and beautiful decorated. A very polish place in England. Duck filet covered in red wine was perfect. Very tasty beetroot soup and delicious desserts! I can recommend with all my heart to everyone who wants to try the good polish cuisine.

    I went for the pork knuckle and I wasn't disappointed! Delicious :) I had it with chips last time but the mash potato last night was just as nice.

    An excellent restaurant. Food was tasty, service was excellent and so were the surroundings, very tastefully decorated, to give the impression you were in Poland itself.
