Everyone at Purple Poppadom is overjoyed with the announcement that we have been included in this year’s edition of the Waitrose Good Food Guide!

Welcoming the great news, Chef Anand George, founder and Chef Patron of Purple Poppadom said:

“This is a magnificent achievement for everyone at Purple Poppadom.  To be recommended in this well respected guide to the top restaurants in the UK in just under two years since opening is magnificent.  We wanted to bring something different to Indian restaurants in Cardiff and we are so pleased we are so popular.

I would like to thank our guests who are so loyally supporting us on our journey of creating innovative Nouvelle Indian Cuisine in Cardiff. I would like to thank everyone in Wales for their support.”

Raman Bijalwan, Restaurant Director at PP said: “We are all so happy today, this is proof that hard work of our skilled and creative kitchen team, backed by our professional service team, can produce very good results.  We look forward to welcoming our guests at this time of great celebration at Purple Poppadom.”

Quoted in the Western Mail today, Abergavenny Food Festival director Martin Orbach said: “New places are appearing and a new generation are appearing and taking over,”

Talking about Chef Anand George and Purple Poppadom, he said:

“He is looking to be a top end chef and his ingredients are very well sourced,” Martin said.

“His presentation is beautiful. he is trying a modern interpretation of Indian food.

“It is not the cod-Indian food that you normally have in restaurants but things that are more authentic in a modern way. He has won lots of awards.”

We thank Martin for his very kind words.
