You have to try the King Prawn Ansari, it's delicious! Staff are always friendly and service is quick and efficient. It is quite expensive but I think it's worth paying extra for a guaranteed lovely meal.

I took my friends to Purnima today, 10 March 2015, and can honestly say that it was a delightful experience. The proprietor, Roli, was a welcoming and informative host, guiding us gently through informed choices. He advised us to try a white wine to accompany our food and it was spot on - it really did enhance the food. He... More

Had my 50th Birthday here. They accommodated 28 of us and also had a 21st going on at the same time. The food was quality as always - no mistakes and no waiting. The service was exemplary and they really helped to create a fantastic atmosphere. Great time was had by all. Thank you Purnima!

Roli is an exceptional host and proprietor of this haute service venue - it never ceases to delight me each time I visit and I am never treated anything less than a valued, special and welcomed...
