Dear Diners, please note that bookings on the 6th and 7th of May between 1-6pm are for afternoon tea only.
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.
I was quite disappointed - the restaurant looked really promising but the food was bland and unappetising. Very poor Rogan Josh tasting quite bitter with lamb that was past its best. The other disappointment was that they hardly had anything left on the menu and this was at 7:30 on aFriday night We will not be returning
Fine dining at reasonable prices. The food is beautifully prepared and presented, and service friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Lovely setting in a traditional Edgbaston building, the perfect venue for couples, small groups and large parties alike.
Excellent service in a lovely setting. Enjoyed the tasty starters, both meat and vegetarian. Lovely cocktails and Indian beer. A great range of mains including meat, fish and vegetarian accompanied with rice and nan. Delicious desserts and coffee
