Nakira Grill Birmingham is one of the best African restaurants in city centre. The menu features Southern and West African dishes, all of which are presented beautifully and offer flavours that break the norm. Think alpaca, crocodile or buffalo burgers, as well as jollof rice, oxtail stew and plenty of fresh fish. Proper African flavours, as you can see, but done with a Nakira twist. But aside from the food, Nakira Birmingham isn’t just a place to eat. As well as the dining area there’s a cool and comfortable lounge serving high-quality cocktails. You’ll find Nakira Grill on John Bright Street where it’s wise to arrive with an advance reservation.
Food sounds delicious?

My other half is South African, we came for his birthday. All the food was amazing, really good, authentic, and delicious. It took quite a long time to arrive, but we enjoyed the ambiance. The waiting staff, particularly the blonde lady, were lovely. The only complaint I have is the lack of good wine. There was a choice of a ‘summer’ red (ie not proper red), 2 whites and a rose. I’m not averse to paying £25 for a bottle of wine at a restaurant if it’s good quality, but Kumala is a fiver a bottle at Tesco! I really was shocked to see they’d charged us so much for the wine. Overall the food was good value, we got a sharer plate costing £40 and we couldn’t finish half between the two of us. I can’t stress enough how good the food was!
Good experience .. staff pleasant, Daria was helpful .. thanks
When people in the centre of Birmingham think of eating out, perhaps they don’t too often think of eating African food. With restaurants like Nakira Grill, however, they absolutely should. Nakira showcases the very best of Southern and West African cuisines and succeeds in making it fairly obvious that African food is some of the most flavourful in the world. Head to the restaurant on John Bright Street for any casual occasion and begin your meal with some beef suya; crawfish tossed in mojo sauce or West African-style egusi soup.
When you’re ready for your main, the burgers at Nakira Grill Birmingham are worth mentioning twice. All sorts of exotic meats are available but the 6oz alpaca burger is our favourite. Alpaca meat is one of the healthiest in the world with loads of protein but almost no fat, meaning you won’t feel like you’ve overindulged once you eaten it. Burgers aside, we’d also recommend the mutton stew, the boerewors skewers or the whole lobster with as many sides as you can handle. Nakira Grill Birmingham is a city centre gem that you ought not to miss.
