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.

    Traditional rustic style restaurant - excellent food, excellent waiting staff and highly recommended for cosy winter evenings! To get your bearings this is a hidden gem just a two minute walk from the Clayton Hotel. We will definitely be back.

    Really cosy restaurant, with a relaxing and homely atmosphere. Consistently good food and large portions. Birmingham is lucky to have such a great traditional Polish restaurant to enjoy. Try the hazelnut vodka as its delicious.
