One of the best!

Take the word of a self confessed 'curry fiend' when I say that this place is one of the best curry houses in Leicester...!

I was recommended this restaurant by the hotel I stay in in Leicester. On my first visit, I was really impressed by the décor if the place, the friendliness of the staff and above all the food. My return visit was equally as pleasurable. I tend to visit on my own at quieter times and have found the service attentive... More

Ignore any reviews posted on here that have any positivity if you read them you are being lured into the worst curry house in Leicester. Let me explain. I have never EVER had to leave a review before on here but in this case I think it is absolutely necessary. I am now going to describe the EXACT experience I... More

we have been eating at Poppadoms since it opened but our last visit was disappointing. We visited for New Years Eve 2013 and had to wait an extremely long time between courses. Eventually our main course arrived with one meal missing therefore to be polite and get on with our extremely extended meal, my friend and I shared. Overall we... More

Would highly recommend this restaurant, probably the best Indian in Leicester. Food is excellent and staff very friendly. A little expensive but worth it!

Give this place a try!!! Amazing food, super friendly staff and great atmosphere. Living locally I get to try all the Indians in the area and this is by far my favourite!

I'm a massive fan of Poppadoms having been there several times. The student deal is always a winner, and as a student with a limited budget I always feel like I get value for money. The staff are always so friendly, and the food is generally excellent across the board. I've tried a wide range of their curries now, and... More

I've been to this restaurant a lot during my time in Leicester, when i first started it was only half the size. The food has always been good and the staff remember me, which is a nice touch considering it can often be months between visits. I would prefer either larger portions or lower prices, which is what keeps me... More
