Pushkar means “Born to a flower.” It was a love of international travel that was the creative spark for Pushkar restaurant. The Director was inspired to open his establishment in the UK after eating in some of the best restaurants in the world. He chose Birmingham as it is one of the most vibrant and culturally exciting cities in the UK, with a flourishing restaurant scene.
Pushkar has been designed to give our guests a fresh approach of everything that is good about Indian Style, food and hospitality. These then go together to create a unique, authentic and relaxed atmosphere.
