The Magic of Curry

For us everyday Indian food is magical! Our aim is to bring you real Indian dishes with their rainbow of colours, spices, and flavours and make this magic accessible to all.

We love combining traditional heritage dishes from the cities and villages all over India, with quality ingredients and a modern twist all of our own. We hope you’ll love it too.

Open for Takeaway!

We are providing a full takeaway service 6-days week, for collection, as well as delivery to a wide 5-mile radius of Cardiff operating the strictest safety measures. Our home is in Canton near Cardiff city centre where we’re hidden away on the first floor, overlooking the bustling street below. We are open 6-days a week, only closed Mondays.

Our love of real Indian food with a more modern, accessible twist has resulted in many awards. We’ve been runners up in the Observer Food Monthly awards for Best Restaurant and Indian Restaurant of the Year in the South Wales Echo Food and Drink Awards.

Customer Reviews

“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!’

‘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

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