We had an excellent evening at this restaurant. The waitress was excellent and helpful. The food was delicious and the three men in the party really enjoyed the various vodka flavours. We will definitely visit again and recommend to friends.

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.

    A great experience of authentic Polish cuisine. Lovely atmosphere, and huge servings. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Beer is a bit expensive for what it is; you can buy Tyskie in a pub for like £2.80, why's it over a fiver in the restaurant?

    If you would like to experience Polish hospitality 'The Karczma' is the place, welcoming, warm, exquisite, home-made delicious food. pierogi - Dumplings to suit both vegeterian and non-vegeterian taste;,unusual 'tatar' - raw minced veal meat seasoned well, the equivalent of caviar in its class, love it or hate it, made with highest standard and profesionalism served with finely chopped gerkhin and onion on a slice of a sourdough bread. That was my choice anyway. The place we chose to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday - exeeded our and her expectations. Well worth a visit and aquire a taste in traditional Polish cuisine. I recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly to anyone that would like to broaden their culinary experience; restaurant that is placed in the heart of the busy city yet tacked away giving a sense of calmness; free parking after 6pm if you get a space.

    It is such a little gem and not what I was expecting.. Relaxed dining. Great portion sizes..

  • ((((( 14 May 2018 by Lynn from West Midlands

    We really enjoyed our visit. Three of us had the dumplings and they were lovely. My son’s had beetroot soup which they said was delicious.We have been once before and had found the portions a little overwhelming but they were much better this time. Our visit was to celebrate our son’s birthday and he loved it. I had mentioned when booking that it was my son’s birthday but there was no acknowledgement of this, which would have been nice and would have added to the experience.
    The decor is quirky and unusual, which we admired very much.
    The service was good and food was delivered promptly.
