Visited Bohemia for lunch in December and again last week for dinner. In December we chose to have the fixed price lunch; main course with a glass of Prosecco which also included a coffee and mini desert at £16.50, this was great value. Last week I chose from the monthly changing 'January' Evening menu, the Duo of Lamb (chump &... More

I recently visited Bohemia with a friend after previously visiting a few years ago. I don't know why I hadn't been back sooner. The food was delicious and not too expensive. I had the prawn puri to start, which was delicately spiced and very tasty. My vegetarian friend had the mushroom starter and enjoyed it very much. We both opted... More

Minced up mushroom & a tin of spam to start followed by over cooked chicken & tomato puree straight out the tube. Over priced budget food which wasn't eaten such a shame as I had high hopes for this hidden eatery. Service was okay but not attentive or observant of the fact that we hardly ate anything.

Dear Elizabeth T We are understandably disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your visit to Bohemia however in the interest of accuracy and fairness I must request that you reconsider what you have published here. To suggest that we served you a 'tin of spam' as a starter is so wildly inaccurate some would even consider this slanderous;... More

Impossible to have a bad experience here - the owners are charming, the food freshly prepared and delicious, from the daily-changing soups to the full menu, and is fairly priced for the thoughtful presentation and originality. The outside doesn't look much, and parking is in the nearby roads but well worth seeking out for a casual lunch or intimate evening.

Tucked away around the corner from the busy Selly Oak junction and can be easily overlooked. If you're in this area then it is worth a visit if you fancy a local restaurant without the fancy trimmings. It gives you a homely feel.

I have eaten at Bohemia on several occasions, most recently in October this year. It has never disappointed. The menu is small but with a good range of choices and some innovative dishes (for example I had chicken stuffed with a spicy sausage). The standard of cooking was excellent for all courses. The restaurant is quite small but this means... More

TripAdvisor says open at 11. At the restaurant sign says open at 11. But walking it at 11.30 was told kitchens not opened yet. No effort to accommodate us. Just matter of fact that kitchens not open yet. Guess you don't need the custom. Shame...

Dear Masood, I'm afraid I wasn't here yesterday when you visited the restaurant it so it's difficult me to comment in too much detail. I am however sorry that you left disappointed and that you didn't eat with us. I thought it would be useful to confirm the details of our opening hours; Bohemia opens at 11am, we are open... More

Description
Bohemia is a Modern British restaurant situated in Birmingham’s buzzing Selly Oak area. This exciting addition to Birmingham's restaurant scene adds a continental feel to the area. Open almost all day, you can pop in for an afternoon lite bite with fair trade coffee or enjoy the more formal evening air at this smart and contemporary establishment. True to its name, Bohemia offers wonderfully relaxed and chilled vibe, and diners are made to feel instantly at ease. Head Chef Ross has created an exciting Modern British menu that changes monthly so you have a new array of choices upon every return visit. Diners love dishes like herb sausage, black pudding and duck egg terrine with plum tomato chutney; poached cod fillet with garlic, chilli and coriander butter; slow-cooked rib of beef with chorizo, dauphinoise potatoes; and Pimms and lemonade jelly with homemade strawberry clotted cream ice cream. Bohemia runs regular jazz nights, acoustic nights and comedy evenings.
