Great food and service

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 lovely immersion into Polish cuisine, in a setting just the right side of kitsch. Authentic dishes and faultless service was what we received, alongside s decentvif not comprehensive selection of vodkas.

An excellent birthday lunch for a friend who was delighted with the occasion. A nice greeting, a nice quiet table, good service and explanation of the menu. The Ham Platter is much better than the description, very large, very tasty and comes with excellent bread. Main courses were delicious and well-cooked, portions were large so we didn't get to dessert. Both of us look forward to going again, but next time, we won't have breakfast.

I have eaten at the Karczma many times and every time has been fantastic. Wonderful food, atmosphere and service. I love this place!

What a great hidden restaurant! Found it by chance whilst looking up restaurants close to the Adagio Aparthotel in Digbeth. Know Polish food reasonably well and the beautifully made dumplings on the menu (had the "mix" of three) are an absolute must and pretty filling as well. My larger course was the beef roulade (Rinderroulade in German) and indeed a German classic. The seasoning of the beef and its stuffing was spot on and so very, very tasty. Great food!
Forget the location (back street on the way to Bordesley) and enjoy the great interior and great quality food. Definitely coming back!
