We visited Karczma on the 22nd December for a bit of a Christmas treat. The menu looked wintery and comforting so we booked a table. It’s in somewhat of a unlikely location near Morr street station (close to OPM for any foodies out there). The...More

You won't go hungry here! Food is plentiful and tasty, with the Rye soup and the dumplings both particular highlights. Really cosy, friendly atmosphere. Loved the map of Poland with pins showing where customer had visited from!

I've been there second time and this time it was way worse than before, which was 3 months ago. We spent an hour waiting for two dishes. Dishes were on plates which were damaged on each side, ALL of them! Food wasn't that good.

The Karczma is a traditional Polish restaurant, bar and grill located in the heart of Birmingham, just 5min walk from both the Bull Ring Shopping Centre and Moor Street Rail Station. Restaurant is decorated in the style of an old Polish country cottage seating 85 people across 2 rooms. The menu is designed to reflect a homely, hearty and rustic food that's quintessentially Polish, and prepared using only the very best quality ingredients. The menu contains numerous Polish classics including Pierogi (stuffed dumplings), Berszcz (Beetroot soup), Pickled Herring, Zurek (Pickled Rye Flour Soup) served from a hollowed out loaf of bread, as well as a whole host of grilled meats and fish. We wish you a pleasant stay and Enjoy !!!
