What People Say

“Takeaway takes our breath away”

We have eaten here a few time and had a few takeaways during lockdown but never left a review. Our latest takeaway was the Valentine’s Day special. It was stunning, every dish was beautifully thought out and wonderfully flavoured, the addition of the chocolate brownie dessert was really lovely too.

The food is always amazing, yo do pay more than a usual takeaway or meal but this is NOT usual, if you haven’t tried it, do it! The winter takeaway deal is of brilliant value and gives a unique taste experience.

‘We have eaten at Purple Poppadom before and loved it. During the lockdown, they are of course only available to do takeaway which we tried last night and were not disappointed. From the first mouthful it was clear this was not just another Indian takeaway: absolutely delicious food, and with 20% discount for collection, not too expensive.  Very good portion sizes too: lunch today is sorted as well!’

Stephen Roberts, May 2020

‘Trailblazing a path for ‘nouvelle Indian’ cuisine, chef and author Anand George adds his own twist to dishes from all over the subcontinent – from Kashmir to Kerala. Thankfully, the emphasis is on the perfection of tried-and-tested regional delights rather than anything unnecessarily wacky.’

Lonely Planet, May 2020

@purple_poppadom smashing it out of the park. Best Indian restaurant in #Cardiff no contest

In his words, the chicken tandoori was ‘next level’! We all loved it. Diolch yn fawr!

So I think @Purple_poppadom might just be the best #IndianTakeaway I’ve had!
