very good Polish traditional food

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.

    I went woth my partner to try for the first time this Polish restaurant as I am polish and wasn.t disapointed at all. I wanted to try the Zurek w Chlebku, my partnet had taken this dish with Sheep's cheese and it was delicious for starters. The main course was more than enough for both of us.
    Definitely will be back there soon.

    Lovely hospitality

    Have eaten here many times, in the day and evening, brought various extended family and friends, some of whom have been to Poland, most have not. All have been very happy. This time just a late lunch with close family. As always fantastic food and friendly service! Everything is always so fresh and authentic tasting, with generous portions. My kids particularly love the soup served in bread and the pierogi. The Polish apple cake is amazing too. And the draft Zywiec is, for me, the best beer in Brum.
