The bar serves everything from bespoke Bellinis to Lassis, and favourite dishes include the Goan fish curry cooked with coriander seeds, chillies and coconut cream.

    Had a lovely Saturday night experience at Pashka, lovely setting, amazing food & a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. My wife is a coeliac so has to eat gluten free which the waiter was very knowledgable about & advised what we could & couldn't have. All round lovely experience not the cheapest but it was a special night so worth it. Does some amazing cocktails too.

    We had our meal as a family the lunch menu. We ordered two three courses and two puddings for our kids. The food was good and service. However we were taken back by the fact that we were charged two main meal single course prices for the two ice creams we ordered. We were not told about this when we ordered. Its a shame but this spoiled our meal at puskhars.

    BeenThere
    Dined on 14/7/2014
    Chose Pushkar based on reviews as we don't know Birmingham but wanted somewhere special to celebrate our daughter's graduation from Birmingham University. A wonderful experience: the decor is modern and sumptuous; the service was impeccable (Azad was an unparalleled host) and the food was out of this world. The menu is Northern Indian and contains some familiar dishes and some you'll only find in more specialised places: try them, especially the lamb chops as a starter. We mixed the familiar and less familiar and were stunned by the quality, both of the ingredients and of the cooking. Fantastic restaurant and Azad made the evening truly memorable. When in Birmingham, go to Pushkar: you won't regret it. If you're lucky, you'll meet Azad!

    Took my partner out for a treat. Location and greeting was fine. We are vegetarian and their is very limited food to offer for us. Once we did order food it was very bland and tasteless. I had 4 bites and was done. We ordered 3 dishes and naan and rice. Very over priced. Come to £65 for 2 of us. We got charged £3.50 for jug of water 'not bottled' they have tried to turn very simple food into something posh but not achieved that. Truly felt robbed

    Been fortunate to eat in some of the best restaurants around the world serving the most exquisite. This is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. The food, surroundings and service were amazing. Due to commitments and not being able to travel far, came to Birmingham for a couple of days to celebrate our one year anniversary and booked this restaurant from googling. Absolutely made the weekend. Felt we really dined somewhere special.

    We went to Pushkars on the off chance and were not disappointed. The quality of the food was excellent and the staff were very hospitable and welcoming. Definitely try a cocktail as well, as they have a varied selection. Whilst it is more pricey than your standard curry house, the quality of the food was well matched and is a great place to go for a special occasion or birthday.

    This was our second visit to Pushkar from Bristol. We loved it so much the first time we wanted to have the same experience again. We were not disappointed. The ambience,food and welcome was second to none. We were looked after all evening by our waiter Huni. The place was buzzing but the service did not suffer. The waiters were all dresses in suits and waitresses smart . We had the lamb chops and scallops for starters which was beautifully presented and delicious . Our main course was generous in portions. You will not go away hungry. Can't wait to go again.

    Needing to order and eat a meal in 45 minutes was the challenge to which Pushkar's staff rose absolutely magnificently. Within a very few minutes they were serving us our drinks, excellent poppadums and chutneys. Our starters were then served - grilled scallops haryali (particularly delicious); spinach and prune cakes. Our mains were served as promptly - awadhi gosht korma and paneer kadai, with pulao rice and Peshawari naan; all delicious. We enjoyed excellent food, ambiance and, above all, service of impeccable excellence. We finished with plenty of time left to return to the hall, well satisfied, very impressed and very grateful. We will definitely return to Pushkar

    Booked for for our wedding anniversary and was not disappointed, the food and service were excellent, thoroughly enjoyed the evening. My only minor point is that it is advertised as a cocktail bar but there is limited seating/standing room at the bar due to the fact directly in front of that bar there are dining tables. This said it will not stop me from going agin albeit for special occasions only as it can be expensive.
