It's a big place with room for lots of diners. We went mid week and it was quiet. Food was good, but service slow. Half of us didn't get our drinks until after eating a course of food. Also poppadoms weren't refilled quickly enough. Good...More

We had a free voucher and wanted a quick meal before going to the theatre. It suited our purpose but I wouldn't choose to go there again. Choice of food was limited and the quality/flavour was nothing to write home about.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

In Britain, we love curry. It's become our national dish! The Poppadom Express invites you to feast on an ever-changing selection of exotic Indian dishes. Help yourself to cool kormas, aromatic tikka masalas, and tangy jalfrezis at our lunchtime and evening buffets. There's a delicious array of sides, chutneys and desserts too. Unwind with family and friends in a comfortable, authentic setting. Even by our standards, it's great value. Enjoy an evening meal including a tasty homemade naan bread or our lunchtime buffet which comes with a soft drink, beer or glass of wine. Takeaway options are available too: the Poppadom Express is a proper British curry-house, after all.
