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.

    One of my favourite restaurants. Came with a family group this time and there were enough of us to have the Polish Trough. This was a great choice for a group. Fab selection of different meats, dumplings and veg. Includes soup starters and really nice sweet plate. Good value for money.

    Decent selection of wine, beer and spirits. Good vodka!

    Very disappointed with how badly this restaurant has gone down hill. It’s not what it used to be. Food quality is questionable and service is just horrendous! We will not be coming back.
