We have been looking forward to a re-visit to this restaurant and were very glad to return. The host chatted about rock music and Indian food. It was a very enjoyable experience. The food was very very good and my favouties from this visit were 1) My son's Onion Bhajees, randomely explosive 2) The Naan bread, not stodgy just lovely... More

Yet again visited this resturant with a group of Irish visitors. Roly & James looked after us really well. Excellent food and wine recommendations. My Irish visitors were really impressed. ***** star rating yet again!

We visited Purnima to celebrate our 5 year anniversary after this place was recommended to us by a local. The food was amazing and the service great too, especially James. Will definitely be back. Thanks!

This is by far our favourite Indian restaurant in Birmingham. We are in the fortunate position to be able to eat out a lot, enjoying everything from street good to Michelin starred dining; time and again Purnima is one of the few restaurants we regularly return to. Fantastic food, wonderful flavours, great staff, a nice setting and great value.

I am lucky enough to live round the corner from here. Food is excellent, good wine selection and attentive staff. If you are looking for a decent curry near the city centre, go here.

I normally avoid curry houses but I make an exception for this one. Its great never upsets my stomach. Have enjoyed every visit. Either the owner (Ronan) or his manager James are on site and both are exceptional and the place would not be the same without them. The wine is great here to I love the house and my... More

We go to purnima a lot. It is a well-run place with excellent staff - friendly and helpful. The menu is interesting and very varied. The choice for vegetarians is unusually large, too. This is a real favourite of ours. Excellent value and really lovely food.

Intimate warm and cosy clean setting; the most beautiful food I've tasted in a long time with stunning use of spices and combination of textures and tastes concluding in one of the best meals you'll eat. Proper popadoms too. Incredible knowledge on food and wine, super friendly service. You'll not find this sort of food often. A must.

Thank tiredbunny2002
