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.

    Good experience food was too much had starter mains and sweet but had to have a doogy bag because the mains was too big felt alittle overwhelming when it arrived.
    Suggestion serve smaller potions and reduce price. It was expensive for a sunday lunch treat.

    The restaurant had a lovely decoration that made us feel as if we were no longer in the UK. Our waiter was very nice and helpful and the food was absolutely delicious! The overall experience was so good that I have already made plans with some friends to go there again in a few days!

    An absolute wonderful dining experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and ambience. I had the beetroot soup which was exquisite followed by the pork knuckle which was so flavoursome. I could not recommend this little gem of a restaurant enough.
