5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Visited this restaurant on New Year's Eve and had a very good time in a party if 5. Hadn't been to the restaurant for some while and had prebooked. Helpful and friendly service with good delivered still sizzling to the table. Good value 2 course meals which came out at £20 per head including 2/3 drinks each and complimentary liqueur at the end. Well worth a visit

“Great food and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

Purbani is my local indian restaurant and I visit regularly. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming whether you are eating in or have popped in for a takeaway (of course you get a little dish of bombay mix and often a takeaway beer to take home). The food is always delicious and freshly prepared. The chef's specials are really tasty and while the portions are generous they are not huge sloppy portions - the meat dishes that come with sauce have rich, thick sauces and are full of flavour and the tandoori dishes are always good. I would recommend booking a table at the weekend if you prefer to eat a bit later as they do get very busy, often with tables of 4 and 6 people and they never rush you as there are no second sittings. Takeaways are just as tasty as sitting in and they certainly have a lot of takeaway business!

“Good Food in a Friendly Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2011

Purbani is a friendly little restaurant right across the road from Highams Park station. It has a good range of dishes, including some tasty vegetarian selections and traditional Tandoori grill options. We went there for a special meal and weren't disappointed with either the food or the service. The staff were very friendly, without being obsequious, and service was prompt and polite. My companion really enjoyed his Tandoori mixed grill (I don't think I've ever seen so much meat piled on one plate) and I tried the mottor paneer, which was very cheesy and savoury. The poppadoms were also delicious, served warm with a selection of tasty dips and spiced onions. We were very satisfied with our meal and will definitely be back.
