Chef Anand George has now published his new 501 Game-based celebration menu, available at Purple Poppadom from 5th December.

501 Launches 5th December

501 Launches 5th December

Available from December 5th, in addition to our existing à la carte menus. 501 represents a major landmark for both Chef Anand George and everyone at Purple Poppadom. We are celebrating five years since Anand brought his innovative cuisine to Cardiff and the first birthday of Purple Poppadom, and 501 is the result.

Featuring ingredients including Wild Boar, Pheasant and Rabbit, 501 will be available as a tasting menu at a specially reduced price for one day only of £34.95 for five courses, as a birthday present from chef.  On that night our usual à la carte and taster menus will also be available.

After December 5th, 501 will be available throughout December at £39.95, and the tasting menu will replace our regular tasting menu for the month.  Dishes from 501 will also be available as à la carte options.

    • 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.
