We are serving a very special taster menu on the evening of November 15th to celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau Day at Purple Poppadom.  The menu is available all evening on the 15th and we anticipate great interest in the new one night only menu, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Beaujolais Nouveau dish at Purple Poppadom

Beaujolais Nouveau dish at Purple Poppadom

Priced at just £29.95 per person for a minimum of two persons, the taster menu naturally includes a glass of Beaujolais Nouveau.

Chef has introduced a number of new and interesting dishes for our guests to explore providing a one-night only opportunity to sample Anand George’s latest innovations.

We are especially intrigued by the addition of goat to the menu, an ingredient which Anand first discussed with our good friend Carol Adams (@babettesffest) at food festivals, who encouraged Chef to explore its possibilities.  Chef has named his new dish in her honour!  It is also fitting that Head Chef Siddartha comes from Rajasthan where this style of dish is popular.

Please contact us to book for this one day only menu.  Our a la carte menu will also be available on this evening.

    • What a day, what an experience; from start to finish, well organised, conducted and delivered. At first it may seem expensive, but once you are on the course you soon realise it is very good value for money. The keep-sake ‘Anand George’ recipe book and denim apron, the sample food throughout the day and taster meal

    • Review via Tripadvisor by Owen G Richards 24th Oct 2018 We went for the set Sunday menu dishes and I can honestly say it’s probably the best Indian meal I’ve had.

    • 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.
