The awards are now in their 10th year and, says the newspaper, the competition is bigger and better than ever

From reader recommendations judges were sent out to sample food and drink in nine categories, and we are so pleased that in just over one year of opening, Purple Poppadom has won the best Indian category.

This builds on our first award last year, when we were named the Welsh Curry House of the Year 2012.

Chef Anand George told the South Wales Echo:

“What I try top do is cook novel Indian cuisine. For example I have one crab dish with three textures of crab – crab cake, crab salad and soft-shell crab. So I use the same ingredient but with three different textures and it’s good value for money.

“We change the menu with seasonal ingredients to make it interesting for the customer, like wild boar and pheasant.

“We’ve been very busy. We’ve been open for a year now and we have very loyal clientele”, he said.

South Wales Echo editor, Tim Gordon, said: “Our Food and Drink awards give our readers the chance to put their favourite eating out venues in the spotlight, and what a great job they did pointing us in the direction of some great eateries.

“When we go out for a meal we all want to be sure we are going to get value for money and receive a quality experience, so it’s only right that South Walians readers look to their favourite newspaper to recommend and inform them about what’s available.

“Our readers put forward hundreds of venues for our awards, which is a fantastic endorsement of the South Wales food and drink industry.

“And judging by this year’s entries standards have risen higher than ever before.”

Purple Poppadom would like to congratulate our fellow winners of these important awards for the Welsh culinary scene.

    • 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 Saber S on 31st October 2018 This is an excellent restaurant. The food was freshly prepared and very tastey. The portions are smaller than normal but the food is perfectly cooked. The service was also excellent and quick. They have adequate professional number of staff who were always nearby to attend

    • 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
