A word from Jojolapa
Hungry Brummies looking for a cosy-chic space for stylish cocktail parties and dinner parties need look no further than Jojolapa on Newhall Street in the centre of Birmingham. This Nepalese restaurant has a sleek interior decorated with dark wood, a black and red colour scheme, intricately carved Buddhas and an abundance of fresh flowers.

Jojolapa – which means 'welcome' in Nepalese – has a family-run feel and the attentive staff and killer menu will have you coming back for more. Signature dishes include the Momo soup – a chicken dim sum broth with seasonal vegetables and noodles; the nariwal jal turay curry with spiced cod, coconut milk and cream; and everyone's favourite – the chicken tikka masala.

Diner Reviews
  • "Really lovely restaurant, we went there for valentines day and it turned out to be a perfect place. The only problem I had it was a bit chilly inside, especially in the bathrooms. The food was amazing, we ordered 4 mains cause we couldn't decide what we wanted - everything on the menu sounded really good! We had to wait for a little while to be served and the waiters weren't particularly chatty, they would just leave the food on your table without saying anything.. but it might be just because they weren't that good at English. But I definitely would recommend this place, the food was sooo yummy!! we're definitely going back next time we're in Birmingham!"

  • "excellent starters; reasonable mains although not as spicy as I was expecting. Small (very small) point - not much for the teetotaller - only 2 mocktails which weren't very inspiring to be honest. Otherwise really good."

  • "Went to this restaurant in a party of three on Friday 6th Dec at 7.30pm. There were a few Christmas parties in but the place wasn't packed which is why i have marked down the service because it took absolutely ages for any of the waiting staff to see to us. There were plenty of waiting staff but the job of seeing to customers/bringing food to tables appears to be reserved for a select one or two because the rest just seemed to stand around rearranging glasses on tables with no customers while actual customers sat twiddling their thumbs waiting to order or waiting for their food to arrive. We had ta ask on 3 separate occasions when our food was likely to arrive which was a shame because when the food did arrive it was delicious."

  • "Due to the Christmas market, the restaurant was a bit empty, but filled up quickly after 7.30pm. The food was lovely, and the staff were helpful with explaining any part of the dish you didn't understand. Service was quick and the wine was lovely (although there wasn't a brilliant wine selection)."

  • "The meal was a total success and an experience in flavour and taste. The service was quick, efficient and friendly and i would definitely reccommend the restaurant to anyone. The only thing that i would comment on is the price but then again you get what you pay for."

  • "Good service and good quality food. The food seemed more classically Indian with a slight Nepalese twist rather than a true Nepalese restaurant. The lay out of the restaurant was appealing."

  • "A nice restaurant with a friendly and casual atmosphere. Service was fine and the food was lovely, with lots of choice. An enjoyable and relaxing evening."

  • "Great experience and fantastic food, part of a ten person group and the food was delivered hot and fresh as if there was just two of us."

  • "Booked in advance and received a very warm welcome. The food was served quickly and the waiters were very attentive. The waiters gave us plenty of time to decide what to eat and didn't rush us out of the restaurant as soon as the bill had been paid. This restaurant is a gem and I hope that their outstanding customer service continues. Highly recommended!"

  • "My wife and I celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary at Jojolapa. After all the party of the weekend with friends and family, I was very nice on the actual day to have a romantic quiet meal for two and get the best of service and the best of food. Well Done Jojolapa!"

  • "Had a brilliant meal at Jojolapa's on Saturday. Was one of the best meals i've ever had, the service was excellent and would happily return just for that, the food was amazing, and was excellently presented. I definitely plan on returning again soon!"

  • "Fantastic service throughout the night - we were made to feel very welcome from the moment we walked through the door! Delicious cocktails from the bar, and amazing food. We shared a Chicken Choyla starter - absolutely beautiful - tender chicken, perfectly spiced, and oozing with flavour. For mains, the King Prawn Chilli Garlic and Lamb Biryani. The king prawn dish was deliciously rich and creamy, brimming with flavour. The lamb in the biryani was cooked to perfection - melt in the mouth and with just the right level of spice. Portion sizes were spot on - we would have liked more purely because of the taste, but left feeling full and satisfied. Prices were very reasonable, ~£50 each and we splashed out on drinks! Would highly recommend."

  • "Lovely food and service was excellent. Also good value for a restaurant in town"

  • "Quick and efficient service, and the food was really lovely and varied. Would definitely go again. If I had to change one thing I would make the menus clearer. Nothing was lacking in terms of flavour or service, very happy!"

  • "Very tasty food and a good selection of cocktails. The service was slightly slow despite the restaurant not being full, and the manager was unable to recommend a dish for me to try from the menu!"

  • "We chose this restaurant having looked at its positive reviews and the fact it was Nepalese. It was attractively decorated and spacious. Although we were the first customers as it had only just opened we were shown a table by the window which more intimate. The staff were very polite and helpful. We chose the set menu as it would give a wider range of food and were very impressed with the quality and presentation. Within a short space of time the restaurant was filling up and I could see some of them were regulars. We are visitors to Birmingham and would highly recommend Jojolapa."

  • "It was a year or two since we'd visited. Restaurant was very quiet until nearly 9pm (Wednesday) which led to a lack of ambience. Although when booking I asked for a 'nice' table for friends who hadn't been before our welcome was very casual and we were waved to choose any table (maybe understandable given the lack of customers). Nice poppadoms - dry and a good selection of chutneys etc. I enjoyed my starter of tandoori chicken but main courses seemed to lack the outstanding touch which we remembered from a few years ago. (Husband had the lamb rogan josh which in the past has been outstanding - said it was not as good as he remembered) We may recommend and go again but not as eagerly as previously - hope others can convince me otherwise."

  • "Went for an evening meal on a saturday at around 8pm and thinking that it was peak time, it would have been busy but the it wasn't. There was only one other family in there. It also had a slight stale smell to it. However when the food arrived, it made up for the other downsides!"
