Me and My wife were searching for somewhere to dine as it was our Anniversary, and a friend recommended the Purple Pakora. As soon as we arrived, we noticed the lovely ambience and décor and were seated by the polite staff. The food I have to say is one of the best dining experiences I have encountered- The starters were... More

On a late booking on our first ever visit to Congleton the staff here were very friendly on the phone to find us a table. Once their the staff were very smiley and welcoming and used your name to greet you which made it very personal. We were seated at our table where the ambiance was warming and comfortable and...

The poppadoms come with some inspired dips, clearly have chefs that really care about what they do. Naans are hung so they don't condensate on the plate and the curry was warming and delicious without blowing my head off! Service a little sluggish but fine for my style of eating out. Definitely my new favorite indian restaurant.

Visited on a Saturday night when the restaurant was pretty busy. Exceptional treatment throughout the evening from all waiters, with a quick but unrushed service. We opted for the £14.99/person banquet with a couple of mains changed at no extra cost. All food was superb, I personally thought my masala was the best I'd ever had! The nann bread was... More

We've been looking for a new favourite Indian restaurant and had heard good things about the Purple Pakora so were excited to visit. Initial signs were good with parking available at the front and a nicely presented restaurant and pleasant service, although the lighting is a little dark. It's a nicely presented restaurant that avoids the typical style of many... More

Perfectly fine, nothing bad, but have had better elsewhere! Also, coleslaw on a chutney tray!?! Staff were good though and service was nice and quick. Not a bad price either for the area.
