Restaurant description

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Well below expectations. It was my first and unfortunately last visit. Customer service failed on start, forgot about us and we were waiting over 15 min to order food. We ware disappointed about the food as well, because meat was overcooked and dry, potato fritter was burned. Bit overpriced to compare with other Polish restaurants. By the way, restaurant itself needs good and deep cleaning. Even table runner was dirty and cover with the old food markings. I think it is time to change them.

    Great night. Friendly service and Covid compliment. Good portion sizes, lovely atmosphere. Plenty of choice on meat & veggie, even with the current reduced menu. We loved it, and will be back.
