We had an excellent family meal at this Restaurant. It has recently changed it’s name, but we still prefer the name ‘The Purple Rooms’.
The change appears to be because there are now two menus to choose from - Asian as before and Persian.
Two...ladies chose the Persian stew, which was different and delicious. The three other guests chose various Asian dishes, and declared them all to be excellent.
We had a warm welcome, and the service was very good. We shall definitely be visiting again in the futureMore
Went there because of good rating by Tripadvisor
Set price meal Mon-Thurs. What I had,
Starter: "Bollywood Scotch Egg" (mine did not look like the picture on the website).
So disappointing, the boiled egg was overcooked and possibly more than a day old. Tasteless spicy...minced lamb should be much thicker to evenly wrap around the egg and another coating of egg and bread crumbs is desperately needed to hold it all together before deep-frying. Lastly, the whole thing is covered with a thin substance that the menu described as a fried egg.
Main course: Jaipur Chicken is nice enough, no complain nor praise.More
Went here on a Sunday evening on a 2 course Groupon deal - suffice to say we won't be returning to pay full price. Disappointed with flavour of both starters & mains - tasted diluted with the exception of the overpowering garlic. Nice Nan.

Came here with family, located on stratford road.
Restaurant is quite small but is quaint. Decor is nice as there are some nice pictures on the wall. There appears to be some refurbishment going on but does not affect the seating area.
We ordered a...selection of variety of starters from lamb chops to vegetable chaat. The lamb chops were very tough, needed very strong teeth to chew through the meat. The chaat was very bland so we added some sauces from the poppadoms to make it reasonable. The worse was the samosa and seekh kebab. They samosa were exactly like frozen ones you get from supermarkets and likewise with the seekh kebabs. I believe the brand is shazam.
The lamb curry was just as bad. The lamb pieces were lamb tikka pieces mixed with currys paste from a jar. The lamb was so tough, I gave up trying to eat it.
Atmosphere was nice and staff were very friendly.
I wouldn't come here again myself.More
Fantastic and friendly welcome. Staff very attentive and excellent in every way.
Had the Jaipur, amazing flavour with loads of chicken, mushrooms and peppers. Chicken cooked superbly, so tender.
Only negative, chicken tikka starter was tasty but the mint sauce was bland and there is...often a red sauce, but this was absent.
With this addition it would be my number one restaurant.
Should this be an addition I would definitely return!!More
Six of us visited the Purple Rooms last night 14th December, we had a very warm welcome and shown to a nice round table. The waiters were attentive and friendly, the food arrived which was excellent, enjoyable and plentiful, just the right heat and seasoning....All of us would recommend the restaurant and we are looking forward to a return visit.More
