The food was really wonderful. There were 10 of us and everyone was pleased, including our 11 year old daughter. The staff was friendly and really wanted us to have a good experience.

I love this place. Food is gorgeous, never had a bad meal here. My favourite curry restaurant in the city by far. Great atmosphere. Perfect for a good night out with friends, family and suitable for people with kids. The Purnima team make you feel very welcome and that is one of the reasons why we keep on going back.... More

Visited here for the first time for my birthday, great fesh tasting food, great service, highly recommend! This is more contemporary Indian than a balti/ curry house. Not sure of the owners name but he was very attentive and gave me a bottle of Bathams to take away as it was my birthday, great!

In your lifetime you need to visit this restaurant. From the moment we walked through the door we felt like royalty. Hassim was delightful and very efficient and funny. James was very helpful, polite & he knows his way round a menu. The big boss R couldn't do enough for us. An absolutely wonderful experience. The food was outstanding!

I picked this restaurant after reading previous reviews on here. I had arranged a meal with some friends and I must say I was not disappointed. The service was excellent, staff were attentive throughout and nothing was too much bother. The poppadum's were crisp and the dips were fresh. The food was hot and I had one of their Purnima...

First visit to Purnima with friends who had been before, Service was excellent, staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and wine choices and would cook meals to suit your preferences. Staff gave us a sample of a different wine with the meal. Restaurant was clean. Have to mention James and Roly (two of the staff) - very... More

The only restaurant I have ever felt compelled to review. Great food, great service and great atmosphere every time we visit. Very reasonably priced (drinks, poppadoms, mains and a side around £15 pp). Highly recommended.
