We had a fantastic meal here last night. Had the student menu (£10.95 for four courses). Could not fault the service- waiters were very polite, fast service and even gave us free shots at the end of our meal. Really great night with great food- thanks very much!

Enjoyed a meal here, value for money and staff were very polite and helpful. Went on a Weds night, so very quiet. Opted for the 3 choice deal, which was very enjoyable

This restaurant is situated next door to Spice Bazaar, and seems to be much quieter. Which works to it's advantage in some ways - the service was amazing because there were only 2 other people eating there at the time we visited (a tuesday night). The food was good, service friendly and decent beer and the set menu is a... More

Went here for a family celebration. Food was quick, delicious with huge portions. Service was friendly. Great restaurant, shame about the tacky interior. Really reasonable prices for sizeable portions.

This looks like it will be a much better experience than the Spice Bazaar next door. Don't be fooled by appearances. The food here was ok but nowhere near the quality, portion size or value of their neighbours.

Our local curry house, a must visit. After trying Spice Bazaar next door, Poppadoms is much better in every department, currys are tasty (although can be a bit less spicy than what i'm used to - so i ask for them a bit hotter), starters are delicious and fresh, the Peshwari Naan's are out of this world and they have...

28.03.2014 Waiters not attentive, although seemed to be very attentive to the English visitors in the restaurant. There was a very big wait between starters and mains, we asked for our main to be made spicy but came very mild, had to ask for chilli powder. Ordered 2 garlic nans, only brought 1. Wanted to take home our leftover paneer... More

I popped into Poppadoms for the first time tonight with a friend. We were offered both a la carte and a set menu. Set menus usually have a limited choice of things you don't really want but I was pleasantly surprised at the variety available - all at a great price. The food was lovely but more importantly, every member... More

I went here for the first time last week and have to say the food, service and price were excellent. We were offered what was a great meal deal offer but decided to go for the menu and was not disappointed. Will be going back... Steve

I took my wife for a meal here as I was utterly dismayed with the stingy portions. £2 rice was about half a cup full! And the naan bread was smaller than a modest dinner plate. The food was pleasant enough and the staff were very nice but the details like the tiny pieces of chicken in the curry made... More
