Established by the same folks who brought you the award-winning Pushkar, Praza fuses superlative Indian cuisine with outstanding cocktails and classic surrounds to create an all-around luxurious dining experience on Hagley Road. Found in an historic building in prosperous Edgbaston, the restaurant provides the perfect location for celebrating a special occasion or anniversary. Oozing with luxury and timeless elegance, this Birmingham dining establishment takes South Indian dining to unprecedented heights.
Throwing a huge VIP bash, creative director Rai Singh opened the doors to Birmingham’s Praza with a bang. Thereafter, it didn’t take long to become one of Edgbaston’s most talked-about dining establishments, serving exquisite Indian dishes in an incredibly stylish environment. Situated inside of a Grade II-listed Georgian building on busy Hagley Road, the restaurant’s setting, as well as menu offering, is simply phenomenal. But what else would you expect from the creators of the beloved Pushkar? And just like Praza’s sister restaurant, you can anticipate excellent service and a first-class drinks menu. Booking in advance is necessary for securing a table at this classy establishment.
Employing Birmingham’s most skilful mixologists, Praza’s bar is worth a visit on its own. Make sure to try a drink from the Indian restaurant's very own martini collection, such as the Spicy Mango or the rich Black Forest martini. Decide between banqueting or selecting from the a la carte menu, then take your pick from numerous starters and mains including chicken, lamb, seafood and vegetarian dishes. If meat’s on your radar, do make sure to try the kachi mirch ka gosht, a spicy dish consisting of lamb sourced from Northern England, green chillies, fresh peppers, onion, ginger and tomato. For herbivorous diners, the mah-ki-dal is a satisfying choice of black lentils slowly simmered with onions, green chilli, ginger and garlic. Several desserts, such as homemade ice cream and gulab jamun (fried dumplings in a sweet syrup), also grace the Edgbaston restaurant’s menu.
Excellent service and great food. The waiters are so polite and efficient! Afternoon tea was fantastic, amazing venue and decor. Would highly recommend to others.
We had delicious food excellent service and had s great evening with our friends
Excellent food and service! Everything was really nice and tasty. The restaurant has free parking at the back, which is a bonus compared to restaurants on the city centre.
We went last week excellent staff n service we were well looked after
We went to Praza last Friday evening and we had a lovely meal. We were able to take advantage of their Quandoo 2-4-1 main courses even on Friday evening which I thought it was amazing. It encouraged us to order more and try different dishes. Food was delicious and service was brilliant. They do add 12.5% on but you do get amazing service and complimentary shots at the end of the meal. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will definitely be back. Thanks to the team!
Worth trying Indian afternoon tea at least once. Personally, I thought the tea needed more spice. I felt there was too much of a range of tastes and flavours in the Indian afternoon tea. Maybe have one less savoury item and one less sweet item. These are my personal opinions based on my personal tastes. I'm not sure why a service charge of 12.5% was automatically added to the bill. We had to ask for more tea (rather than waiting staff asking us) and I wouldn't say the waiting staff did more than "their job". Praza is nicely decorated and has a nice ambiance.
Had a great night at the Praza. Welcome was excellent and the service was 2nd to none. Staff are very accomadating and the food was excellent. Will tell all my friend's to go and try it. Top marks to everyone at Praza.
Parking proved difficult due the restaurant being very busy - a frustrating experience as this was our first experience of Praza. The member of staff who served us was a little unsure of various dishes - his product knowledge was somewhat lacking but he was very pleasant. However, our starters & mains didn't disappoint as presentation & taste were excellent. We'll look forward to our next visit - but we won't be taking the car.
I stumbled across this afternoon tea when looking for things to do whilst having a weekend in Birmingham with my girlfriend. It happened to be the last Sunday of the month when this Indian noon tea takes place and I have to say that it was well worth the effort. Delicious chai tea and lamb chapati style wraps that were to die for. I love Indian food anyway but the thought of a twist of an afternoon tea was too intriguing to miss. The bitter chocolate eclair stuffed with a frozen icecream was very clever and a fantastically crumbly peanut Bon Bon thing which went down well with my ginger and cardamom chai tea. We were greeted by I assume the manager dressed in traditional attire and who was very professional and always checking up on guests and I have to say the whole experience was brilliant, highly recommend:)
We were greeted at the door and shown to our table. The service was very good: polite, not too rushed, but equally, not too slow. The food, as always, was delicious. We didn't have any poppadums, as we found in the past that the portions are deceptively large. All four of us had different lamb dishes for the main course and the meat was first class: really tender and beautifully cooked. The only criticism I have is that despite booking a table in advance and arriving when there was still a lot of choice of tables, we were shown to the worst table in the room (on the first floor, next to the door used by waiters). We requested a change of table and so did other guests who arrived after us and were also shown to that table.
