Square Meal Review of Purple Poppadum ?

Anyone who experienced Anand George’s top-flight Indian cooking at Mint & Mustard will know what to expect here: fresh ingredients, fresh flavours and fresh ideas (alongside a few trusty favourites). The unassuming first-floor dining room has all the curry-house trademarks – rich colours, subtle lighting etc – although people are here for the “amazingly creative modern food” rather than the look of the place. Elegantly presented specialities such as Syrian beef curry or ‘the streets of Mumbai’ (a snack combo comprising aloo tikki, Bombay chaat and puffed rice salad with tamarind chutney) show the kitchen’s regional scope, while “fabulous” seafood highlights include Anand’s long-standing signature dish – silky pan-seared sea bass on curry leaf-infused mash with a raw mango, ginger and coconut sauce and beetroot pachadi. After that, try his renowned dessert – a delightfully rich, gooey chocolate samosa with homemade ice cream.
