We had not tried the Purple mango for some months due to christmas and the weather has not been brilliant of late, but was looking forward to our curry when we ordered it, as it was possibly the best around locally. However I have just returned from collecting it (they don't deliver) and can say that it was probably one of the worst curries we have ever had. They said collect in 20 mins, which I did, but the rice and sag aloo was virtually stone cold, my wife's chicken tikka masala had a funny taste like it was tescos ready cooked chicken that was almost off and had sauce poured on it, and my chicken pathia tasted nothing like a pathia, it had a coconut taste to it and the sauce which is usually redish in colour was green. To be honest the taste and colour of the sauce was very similar to the packet curry sauce a Chinese take away would use in their curries.
I didn't bother taking it back as 1) it was a 10 minute drive 2) I really didn't want another from their 3) I couldn't be bothered arguing about a refund 4) I went to Jaypur in town and got another curry (which was delicious if I am honest, and with Jaypur, we ordered 2 popadoms and they gave us 4. Little things make a difference.
Such a shame but it was nothing like it used to be, wonder if the chef has changed?
Really gutted about this and don't think I will be returning soon as we will now be using Jaypur, and they deliver.
