As we celebrate National Curry Week, we are overjoyed to have been named one of the Eight Great Indian restaurants by The renowned Good Food Guide.

Purple Poppadom name top 8 in the UK by the Good Food Guide

Chef Anand George, Founder of Purple Poppadom said: “I would like to thank The Good Food Guide and my entire team and our customers for making this accolade possible. We are so proud that our work continues to be recognised by the leading food critics and to be representing Wales in this great top 8 eight in the whole of the UK.”

Here is what The Good Food Guide said about us:

‘Tucked up a flight of stairs on busy Cowbridge Road East, the restaurant is suitably purple inside, from lighting to walls. The menu covers the expected Indian favourites and a few lesser-known creations, all freshly cooked and bursting with flavour. You could start with a seekh kebab, after which the thali-style platters are a good way to go (the vegetarian option comes highly recommended, with dishes running from tarka dhal to paneer makhani). For dessert, look out for the signature chocolate samosa. The nicely annotated wine list covers 20 affordable options.’

Here is the full list:

  • The Chilli Pickle, Brighton
  • Purple Poppadom, Cardiff
  • Exotic Dining, Kettering
  • Montaz, Newmarket
  • Tharavadu, Leeds
  • Bombay to Mumbai, Stockport
  • Dastaan, Epsom

    • 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 Saber S on 31st October 2018 This is an excellent restaurant. The food was freshly prepared and very tastey.

    • 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! Everything was beautifully cooked and full of flavour, with our particular favourites being the onion pakoras, laccha parathas and the planner makhni – the
