Consistently good food and service

After bad experiences elsewhere, my partner and I were really pleased to find a good Indian takeaway right on our doorstep. Prices are what one would expect, with the food being tasty and consistently prepared every time we've ordered.

Purbani always provide an excellent take-away with consistently good flavours and textures, polite friendly service and free delivery. There are some new menu items: Vegetable Platter starter Butter Chicken Bengal Fish Jalfrezi and Captain Naga chicken or lamb. I had Chicken Naga Lamb tonight. It has a thick rich sauce with a pleasant hot taste of Naga chillies. No more... More

The shop itself doesn't look too impressive but the food is delicious - far better than other Indian takeaways in the area (& I've tried a few). Some really lovely flavours going on in the meals. Delivery drivers are always friendly & courteous too.

According to the website it's an 'exceptional Indian takeaway' and you 'will always receive a warm welcome any time of the day'. Well I called when it was still apparently open for a takeaway and was told it was closed. Never again

I went purbani couple of times , even though they where nice to us the food was rubbish and gave me the rong dish..when they did get the right dish it was too hot even though i asked for it to be mild. Great guys at the front but could be better at the back..cooking?

Purbani is my regular Indian takeaway. Every Friday is Curry night for me and I ask for mega hot Vindaloo and the owner of Purbani called Sonar and his older brother Masuk are very down to earth and friendly and they know exactly how I like my Vindaloo to be done. Even the drivers who deliver the curries are very... More

I tend to stick to the same order as it never disappoints, Chicken Xacuti and a garlic nann. Super nann bread and tasty food.
