Found at the foot of one of Birmingham’s finest examples of Brutalist architecture, the Jurys Inn hotel building, Pushkar on Birmingham’s Broad Street astounds guests with its beautiful contemporary dining space and exceptional South Asian cuisine. Led by head chef Bishal Rasaily in the kitchen, this city centre restaurant gives traditional Indian dishes a gourmet upgrade, adding an extra level of flavour, culinary expertise and finesse. Mixing, shaking and pouring behind the bar, Pushkar’s mixologists create the perfect counterpart to the cuisine on offer, with signature martinis (how about a fresh lychee martini muddled with premium vanilla beans?), delicious lassis, fresh juices, fine wines and draught beers on offer.
When taking a look at Pushkar’s extensive a la carte menu, it will likely be difficult to come to a final decision. Thankfully, everything offered is absolutely delicious, whether it’s the tandoori king prawns, the vegetable korma or the decadent swiss chocolate cake. For starters, we recommend the masala crab cakes or the vegetarian vermicelli Williams, potatoes filled with spiced peas, rolled in vermicelli then fried until golden with a sweet yoghurt and fruity tamarind sauce. As for mains, make sure to try the tariwala murgh, a house specialty consisting of chicken breast slowly simmered in a tomato and onion broth. Vegetarians are encouraged to go for the phaldari kofta, minced seasonal vegetables cooked in a rich sauce with potatoes and spiced dumplings filled with dried fruits and sultanas. Any choice is a good choice for dessert at Birmingham’s Pushkar restaurant, with unique options like garam masala brulee, homemade kulfi and chocomosa (chocolate samosa!) on offer. There’s a reason why this Birmingham city centre restaurant is a huge success – make a reservation to experience it for yourself.
Upon entrance there was brilliant service. The atmosphere was amazing as well. Couldn’t find a single fault during the visit. Will definitely be visiting again.
Mazing atmosphere, service is always very personal. Restaurant does get pretty busy however you always receive good quality of food, friendly staff, great drinks. Never been disappointed! Definitely recommend!
Excellent food, very friendly and efficient service. The wine was good so was the coffe. Loved the espresso cup design. A very professional and welcoming manager.
Great food, wonderful service, always friendly and although as busy as ever it has never disappointed. Will be back again soon. Always worth a visit for curry fans of all ages.
A great night at Pushkars as part of the local jazz festival. We had booked a table but arrived to find the place very full and the jazz quartet about to start. We had to wait a few minutes for our table but in the meantime were seated by the band and ordered cocktails. Pushkar cocktails are great and quite reasonably priced and we were not disappointed. I thought service and quality might be a problem on such a busy night but everything was great - delicious food, beautifully presented and with attentive service. So a brilliant night, not cheap but worth the cost. The jazz was a real bonus even though a lot of people talked over it. Restored my faith in Pushkars after a more mixed previous lunchtime experience.
Great evening at Pushkar - as ever. Love the place, the ambience, the people. Everyone is so helpful and were very patient when my guest was 40 mins late for our table. And then there is the food. Just brilliant. The Pushkar Panorama starter is an experience on it's own - wow. I love their fish curries, which never disappoint and my guest who was in Birmingham for the first time said his chicken curry and potato side were the best he'd ever had. Neither of us were drinking as we were driving so we sampled the non-alcoholic cocktails - they are great and the same price as a beer.3 course meal - tea and coffee - six cocktails - £100. I'm happy.
We dined after a Symphony Hall concert and had a wonderful time. It's hard to say which was better, the food or the service! Shared scallops and prune/spinach cake starters and had N Indian fish stew and a creamy lamb dish for mains. All absolutely delicious and we can't wait to have them again. Service was impeccable and the staff friendly and attentive but not obtrusive. They picked up it was my friend's birthday and brought him a little cake with a candle, suitably low key and charming, not cringeworthy at all! We loved our visit to Pushkar and will definitely go back there next time we're in Birmingham. Thanks to all at Pushkar!
Unfortunately this visit wasn't up to Pushkars normal standard. The food was as fab as ever but unfortunately the service let it down, it certainly didn't deserve the £30+ service charge that was added to the bill as a party of 6. Our starters arrived super quick in fact whilst the waiter was taking our main course order & retrieving the menu's, very unorganised & meant we were giving our orders whilst the starters were in front of us going cold. We then waited over an hour for our main courses to arrive. The waiter did at one point apologise & told us they would be another 5mins, 40 mins later they arrived with one of the breads we'd ordered missing. We decided as it was getting late & had to work the next day to skip desert & go straight to coffee. I brought to the waiters attention mine had cinnamon on top when it was advertised as chocolate to which I was told they sometimes change things for artistic flair??! NO ..... I did not order artistic flair, nor Cinnamon! I can't stand it & was given a marshmallow to get rid of the taste ..... not really good enough it should have been replaced or taken off the bill! Such a shame as normally I can't fault it, maybe Saturday nights are best avoided!
We are from the Netherlands and visited this restaurant for the first time in 2011. It was such a pleasant experience that we decided to come back. This time (April 2016) we were in Birmingham for work/pleasure and booked again for dinner at Pushkar. We are very satisfied with this second time. Delicious food, perfect friendly service and stylish cosy environment. We left a generous tip. On a slight downside this time we were placed next to the kitchen and it was a bit noisier that we would wish. Also because the restaurant was completely full - we went on Saturday night. We recommend Pushkar with no hesitation, but advise to sit further from the kitchen.
Excellent! I've been to some very good, probably the best being eastzeast in Manchester, plus plenty of very indifferent ones really not as good, at least to my tastes as an M & S curry! Pushkar is however the best I've been to, I can see why we had to wait until 10.00am to get a table. From the nice bright and comfortable decor through to the excellent service, the food beginning with the humble poppadom, thorough starters to my prawn based main was melt in the mouth delicious and hotter than expected but in a good way. Also an excellent wine list, myself and a friend shared an excellent Rose. Not cheap but sometimes in life one has to pay for something rather better. Definitely looking forward to my next visit!
