Why we love it

When someone gets round to writing a "the Big Book of Cardiff Curry", one name will be writ large. One man has changed the face of Indian dining in the city – take a bow Anand George. From his early days at Mint & Mustard to this elegant fine dining space in Canton, he has introduced the city to the flavours of Southern India: curry leaf, coconut, mustard seeds – this is a world away from your typical 'curry house'. They have taken the street-food scene by storm too, with their Tukka Tuk. With his first cookbook imminent, things are looking good for Purple Poppadom.

Really excellent food & service


The Purple Poppadom is really excellent. We had crispy crab and king prawns to start, then lamb and chicken curries. The garlic naan was perfect on the side (for dipping) and we couldn't quite finish everything. We'll definitely be back to try the other dishes.


Delicious food, would highly recommend!
