Bearwood surprise

Bearwood High Street is typical of many suburban high streets - lots of empty shops, lots of charity shops and not really the kind of place where you would expect to find a restaurant of such quality as Purnima.

As we walked in, we were warmly greeted by the host and we were made to feel right at home during our visit, the food was amazing, spiced to perfection. The customer service was outstanding and the staff and host were very attentive. A fine selection of wines that go really well with Indian cuisine, I would go back again... More

Very tasty indeed. My friend ordered a fish dish and said it... More

Have eaten here several times. Always a warm welcome. The food is superb. Staff are attentive and friendly. Premises are spotless. Attention to detail is superb. I recommend the tandoori chicken starter and the chicken passanda main course. Both to die for !!! Keep up the good work and high standards guys!!!
