  • Good food and ambience

    The ambience was quite good and the staff was very polite and welcoming. The food was not spicy to my taste but I guess it was my own fault as I didn't specify it during ordering, also they didn't ask whether I want it mild or hot. The service was good and food arrived quite quickly. However, I didn't like the dessert which I even mentioned to the server. He just said sorry. I order a dessert platter which included Gajar halwa, rasmalai and something like chocolate samosa. Everything was good except rasmalai which didn't have any taste to it.

    Can't really fault the restaurant. Large portions nicely presented. I personally thought the taster starter was a bit bland. Never got my salt lassi either! More unusual things on menu which, thankfully, wasn't too long! However, despite minor niggles, as out-of-towners we'd recommend it to anyone visiting Birmingham who enjoys Indian cuisine. Ask for Azad to be your waiter

    This is our second visit to Pushkar on a trip to Birmingham and once again our experience was second to none! The staff go out of there way to make you feel special and are really enthusiastic about the food that they produce. Due to there being such wonderful choice we asked our waiter to bring us what ever he would recommend and boy, we weren't disappointed. The food is beautifully presented and tastes wonderful. I would recommend Pushkar to anyone, it is fantastic!

    We arrived half an hour early for our meal at Pushkar last Saturday with the intention of having a drink at the bar before eating. However the bar staff were so busy that we were unable to get served and after 10 mins went to our table without our drinks! Apart from this, the service was brilliant, the food was amazing and the restaurant itself lovely and buzzing with atmosphere.

    Although the food was good the service could have been a lot better. The food came quickly however no one came and asked whether we wanted anything else or was it all right. We finished our meal and waited 20 minutes before our table was cleared. The waiter left our empty glasses and some unused cutlery on the table. We were not asked if we wanted any more drinks and we had to ask for the desert menu. Again these were served quickly. We then has to wait again for the table yo be cleared and to request the bill. Eventually after 15 minutes I was able to ask for the bill but it did not come and so I had to ask for it again. Overall the service and attention to detail was very poor despite having plenty of staff walking about the restaurant.

    This was our fourth time at Pushkar and it never dissapointed as per usual, the staff remembered us straight away, which is very impressive seen as though we haven't been since April. On this occasion we took my parents for their birthdays, they were impressed from start to finish. The restaurant gave my parents a birthday card each and a piece if chocolate cake each all decorated on a plate saying Happy Birthday. We also took our 4 month old son and they treat him brilliantly, they even offered to look after him so we could eat our dinner when he was a bit upset. Thanks again Pushkar see you soon.

    Prior to making my reservation at Pushkar's, I read a number of reviews which were all positive. I have to say they did not disappoint. From the moment my partner and I stepped into the restaurant, the table staff were extremely polite and looked after us. Especially my partner who is gluten free. The cocktails were amazing, the food literally melted in your mouth. It was a fantastic evening and I will be going again at the end of the month.

    Had a fantastic meal here, was a bit worried when we first walked in it was all a bit too "glitzy" but not at all - the service was warm and friendly, very attentive, did think it might verge on too attentive (with the wine pouring) but they slowed down after a while. The food was some of the best I have ever had at an Indian restaurant, lots of veggie options, we chose 4 between us but all side portion sides, which was perfect. All very flavoursome and varied, not too much oil. Lots of warm goodbyes and handshakes on the way out, all in all a great night out

    Food great but the maitre'd suggested he bring our group of eight a selection of starters. Very nice - lamb, scallops king prawns - one per person. Main courses were reasonably priced and we only had two bottles of wine and one beer. When we got the bill it came to nearly £58 a head! The king prawns were £4.50 each! We were really stung by not ascertaining how much this mixed starter would cost. Thank goodness none of us had a dessert or cocktails!

    Lovely restaurant and great service on arrival. I did expect to pay more than usual for a meal from Pushkar however I expect more than average from the food too in that case; this was not the case! On arrival you are asked whether you would like poppadoms and still/sparkling water. We requested poppadoms and still water. You get 2 poppadoms; which would be quiet suffice until you realise you are paying £3.50 for them along with £3.50 for a bottle of water. I admit it was own my fault for not asking for tap water however I never expected to pay a small fortune for bottled water! We paid £17 for 2 sheek kebab and 4 chunks of chicken and £13 a meal. Lamb rogan josh was totally bland and chicken murgh makhani was tomato soup!

    The restaurant has a sophisticated yet not pretentious and inviting design. We were greeting by friendly and professional staff and very well looked after for the whole evening. We were able to relax and enjoy our time and we didn't feel rushed despite it being Saturday evening. The staff were knowledgable about the food and able to recommend dishes to suit our palate. The food was fabulous, beautifully presented and tasted amazing. The portions were a perfect size. We would definitely return and would highly recommend it to friends for both the dining experience and amazing food.

    I can't pick a single fault with this restaurant. From the moment you walk through the door, you receive a warm, friendly welcome from the front of house staff. The seating, ambience and service are all exceptional, but the food is where the highest praise has to be placed. I would highly recommend the mixed kebab sharing starter. The tandoori chicken was some of the softest and most succulent I've ever had. The sheek kebab was rich and delicious. The salmon dildar, Scottish salmon, was incredible! Neither my fiancée or I particularly like fish, but we just couldn't stop eating it, it was SO good! This is not your typical 'curry house' experience, a fact that's reflected in the price, Pushkar is truly a cut above the competition.

    We often have cause to travel to Birmingham to see concerts at the LG Arena. We have been trying to get to Pushkar for a few months and finally made it last week. Thank heavens we did. The first impression as you go through the door is of a superbly decorated restaurant. It just gets better. The service was excellent, the people very friendly, helpful and attentive though not intrusively so. The food moved up to another level. We have been eating in Indian restaurants for 35/40 years. This could be argued as the best. Without going through the menu in detail the Indian Fish curry was the best I have ever eaten. An excellent experience. We are back in late November. We shall be making another reservation be assured.
