Placed an order for delivery. Staff did not record delivery details correctly but when order was chased blamed the customer. Have eaten in this restaurant and the customer service was fine but blatant lying over details of delivery is completely unacceotable. I would advise to avoid ordering from this restaurant.

Between ourselves and friends we've tried everything on the menu in the last year and have never been disappointed. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

We visited Purnima to celebrate our 5 year anniversary after this place was recommended to us by a local. The food was amazing and the service great too, especially James. Will definitely be back. Thanks!

This is by far our favourite Indian restaurant in Birmingham. We are in the fortunate position to be able to eat out a lot, enjoying everything from street good to Michelin starred dining; time and again Purnima is one of the few restaurants we regularly return to. Fantastic food, wonderful flavours, great staff, a nice setting and great value.

I am lucky enough to live round the corner from here. Food is excellent, good wine selection and attentive staff. If you are looking for a decent curry near the city centre, go here.
