A word from Pushkar


Pushkar is a gourmet Indian restaurant that has generated significant buzz and rave reviews from Brummie foodies. Part fine dining room, part cocktail lounge, the space is a cream and lemon affair with starched linens and a cosmopolitan vibe. Perfect for cocktails and platter-sharing, Pushkar also has a sexy a la carte menu and chef Bishal Rasaily – who has worked everywhere from the Taj Sheraton in Mumbai to the acclaimed Chutney Mary's in London - has a flair for creating fresh, modern and healthy dishes. 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.

    My wife and I really enjoyed our evening at Pushkar on Saturday 25th October, great food in a very nice restaurant. It was nice to be in a restaurant where you didn't feel like you were eating with someone else - great space which is always something that can be a pain. We will definitely be going again!

    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 atmosphere was really good. It was really busy and nice. However our table candle was not lit :( and we were seated by the kitchen area which was quite disturbing. We couldnt get dessert because the kitchen was closed. Next time i shall go on time :) Other than that i would defintely go again.

    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.

    The positive reviews on this place are well judged. Cocktails we had were good (loved my passion fruit one) and the list was extensive. A good selection of food and wines to choose from, the lists being very nicely presented in individual white boxes. Food was very good and beautifully presented. The service we had from Sadiq was faultless and the tips and advice he gave on our choices were helpful and much appreciated. This is a VERY GOOD quality restaurant.

    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.

    Pushkar is a restaurant that does everything to perfection. The service is perfect and the food is excellent.
