My wife and I were here at 6.30pm on a Monday night for a quick curry on the way home from Brum. Unsurprisingly it was a bit quiet but the quality of the food didn't suffer. We had no complaints at all with the meal but I thought the service could have been a bit more attentive considering there were... More

We visit Purnima regularly and the food is exceptional, and with a fantastic collection of quality wines. The service is 5 star ++++, and we are always made welcome as a family of four, even when the place is very busy.

I ate at the Purnima for the first time tonight and it was an absolutely superb evening. It started with a slight wait for a reserved table but we were welcomed at the bar and enjoyed a drink on the comfortable seats whilst we waited. Popadums and chutneys were provided as we chose from the menu. There was an excellent... More

Quite the best curry house I have visited in recent years, From a warm welcome to reluctant departure we were well looked after in every respect. An early return is looked for!

Had a fantastic meal. Thought I'd try something different and it didn't disappoint. My friend was unsure of what to have and they suggested something that was right up her street. Great friendly atmosphere. Will definitely visit again.

Thank Kerry M
