Chef Anand George has hailed our wonderful review in the Observer magazine today as ‘A great day for Purple Poppadom.’

The founder of our restaurant was reacting to a double-page review of Purple Poppadom by Jay Rayner, widely regarded as one of the leading and most influential food critics in the UK.

Commenting on the feature, which is titled ‘Purple reign,’ Anand George tweeted: ‘This is a great day for @purple_poppadom. I thank @jayrayner1 for a most generous review and I look forward exciting times ahead. AG’

We have been inundated with wonderful reactions from people on Twitter welcoming the review and we thank everyone for their kind words. We cannot thank you enough.

    • Review via Tripadvisor by DenisinWales on 26th September 2018 1st despite the very long sign board covering 2 store fronts, the entrance is a tiny door at the far left. Once you climb to the 1st floor, you are greeted with a very understated and tasteful restaurant seating about 60-70 people. For a Tuesday night

    • Review by Ellym106, TripAdvisor, April 2018 We had an excellent meal here. We visited India in November and know how the food is supposed to be – and this is it!
