Remembered a friend recommending this place a few months ago and gave it a try following a visit to the Museum of Jewellery. Just our sort of place. Really friendly with efficient service and great food. My partner had the Cajun king prawn salad and I had curry goat and rice. Both were excellent. The real chocolate hot chocolate with... More

Best meal I've had in ages, there is nothing negative about this place. Great food, friendly staff and very reasonable prices. Because there was a group of us they even opened on a night they are usually closed. Can't wait to go back.

As always,delicious food and a warm welcome. Tuna & lime fish cakes & mushroom stroganoff were both tasty. Peanut butter brownie is gorgeous. Worth a visit.

Very cosy little place, staff very welcoming and the food was fantastic and very fairly priced. Girlfriend and I travelled from London to Birmingham for the day and stopped off here for lunch. Starters, mains and deserts were all lovely. Particularly recommend the Jerk Chicken, the seasoning was On Point! One of the best I've had - compliments to the... More

Chanced upon 24 Carat Bistro whilst wandering around the Jewellery Quarter during a midweek lunch time. Good, genuine home made food of the top quality and reasonably priced. Service wonderfully informal. There are some issues with the premises due in the main to the size but they do not compromise the experience. Thank you for a great lunch

It’s shockingly small, and smells musty. Must have been a sandwich shop in a previous life. It’s begging for everything to be ripped out (especially the lone shelf and home-made counter) and given a proper clean, fresh paint, new flooring & furniture. I’ve tried their Cajun Prawns, which tasted shop-bought from IceLand Supermarket, and Jerk Chicken (which I was hoping... More

After reading several reviews on Trip advisor we decided to give this place a try. Not easy to find- this small restaurant is tucked down an alley. Jan, who looked after us, was warm and welcoming - striking a good balance between engaging with customers and providing a service. The food was authentic and traditional with the addition of reggae... More

Popped along to this little place tucked down an alleyway, enticed by the reviews. Top food and brilliant service. You probably always need to ring ahead to book, as it is small and look out for the rum too!

It feels like you're in your own living room, and the home cooked nature of the food complements that perfectly. Very, very tasty fare and excellent service to match.

GOOD HOME COOKED FOOD AT A REASONABLE PRICE.
We are a small FAMILY RUN business in the heart of the Jewelry Quarter,
reached by walking down a quaint tiled walkway (at the side of Paul Green's Jewelers).
Once inside you will discover a hidden part of the Jewelry Quarter's history.
