We booked a table for 12 to celebrate my mother in law's 80th birthday and it really was a lovely night. We were really looked after from the moment we booked. Jan took lots of time going through menu options, seating arrangements and so forth and wasn't at all phased by the long list of food allergies our family comes... More

Nothing was too much trouble, with lots of humour and lovely personal service. Food was EXCELLENT (highly recommend the fish and the burgers!) and a lovely relaxed... More

Really friendly with efficient service and great food. My partner had the Cajun king prawn salad and I had curry goat and rice. Both were excellent. The real chocolate hot chocolate with... More

Best meal I've had in ages, there is nothing negative about this place. Great food, friendly staff and very reasonable prices. Because there was a group of us they even opened on a night they are usually closed. Can't wait to go back.

Very cosy little place, staff very welcoming and the food was fantastic and very fairly priced. Girlfriend and I travelled from London to Birmingham for the day and stopped off here for lunch. Starters, mains and deserts were all lovely. Particularly recommend the Jerk Chicken, the seasoning was On Point! One of the best I've had - compliments to the... More

Chanced upon 24 Carat Bistro whilst wandering around the Jewellery Quarter during a midweek lunch time. Good, genuine home made food of the top quality and reasonably priced. Service wonderfully informal. There are some issues with the premises due in the main to the size but they do not compromise the experience. Thank you for a great lunch

It’s shockingly small, and smells musty. Must have been a sandwich shop in a previous life. It’s begging for everything to be ripped out (especially the lone shelf and home-made counter) and given a proper clean, fresh paint, new flooring & furniture. I’ve tried their Cajun Prawns, which tasted shop-bought from IceLand Supermarket, and Jerk Chicken (which I was hoping... More
