My boyfriend and I are regular visitors to purple pakora, and we're never disappointed. The food is always great, along with polite and helpful staff that make the experience even better. Ambiance and decor is lovely, would 100% recommend.

Decided to go for a curry and been meaning to try this page for ages. Got a table even though we hadn't booked, there was 3 of us. Very modern looking but dark inside. It was very noisy and it was hard to have a conversation above the din. Lovely tasty food and I love the naan on a stand,... More

Came here for a friend's retirement along with about 40 others. The place itself is clean and modern. The food was excellent and the staff were polite, attentive and efficient. Never felt rushed and the whole evening was very relaxed. I will visit again

This was a mixed starter which consisted of a very stodgy bhaji, sliced mushrooms with pieces of chicken tikka, and sheek kebab, all of which were only just warm. We then had a choice of any main course... More

You can't fault the food or price at the purple pakora at all, the food was freshly cooked and even the drink was reasonably priced, as others have mentioned it is a little dark in there but personally I didn't mind that it! The only problem was the waiters attitude when we first arrived however I think this was due... More
