We win the Tiffin Cup 2014!

tiffin cup winnersWe are excited to announce that we have been named the best South Asian restaurant in Britain winning the Tiffin Cup 2014.

The award represents a second Tiffin Cup triumph for Chef Anand George who picked up the prestigious accolade in 2008 and this time he was joined by Director Raman Bijalwan, Chef Siddartha Singh Rathore and Chef Anand George at The Grand Final ceremony on Tuesday 8th July.

Anand George was one of twelve chefs from all over the UK taking part in the final cook-off at the House of Commons. Judges included TV chef Ainsley Harriott and former Eastenders actress Nina Wadia.

As the only restaurant representing Wales in the competition, Anand George said: “I am so happy to be bringing the Tiffin Cup back to Cardiff and Wales again.

Winning the Cup in 2008 put our new style of Indian cuisine on that map. Now, we have moved forward with our new Nouvelle Indian Cuisine at Purple Poppadom and it is great that we have been recognised with this prestigious award.

I would like to thank Kevin Brennan MP for nominating us, my team for their loyalty and our customers who have followed and supported us every step of the way in our quest to innovate. I believe this is a great day for cuisine in Wales.”

The winning dish ‘Kappa Meen’ from Anand George will be making an appearance to the Purple Poppadom menu in August for guests to enjoy in celebration the Tiffin Cup.

The Kappa Meen, a pan-seared hake served on a bed of tapioca mash soused in roasted coconut and kodampuli – smoked tamarind sauce, topped with a broccoli crisp and a shallot and red chilli chutney.

Chef’s 2008 dish, Tiffin Seabass, also inspired by his culinary roots in Kerala, Southern India, quickly became a signature dish for Anand George and has remained a firm favourite in the restaurant ever since.

    • 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
