Weve been to Purnima many times before so finding that the cupboard was bare had no worries about going to Bearwood.
BUT the naan was burnt on the bottom (black) and the tarka dhal looked as if it had been watered down and tasted bland.
Very disappointed tonight!

Have been to Purnima on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. Went on a Friday evening and had a table straight away. Spoke with the owner who spends time for his customers. I ordered something that wasn't on the menu and that wasn't a problem.
Food was great and there was no rush to get us out.
This was the best meal that I have had for some time. Well worth a visit

I know this restaurant very well and so had no problem in getting them to supply take away food for Wednesday night club social event. It was outstanding and everyone enjoyed and commented on the taste and high standard of the food. The restaurant itself is top notch and if you have not been before. GO! You will be glad you did.

We enjoyed some really good food on a busy friday night. The staff were really friendly and attentive. The meal was also great value for money. My only gripe is that they seemed over stretched and there was an hour gap between the starters and mains. The quality of the food made up for this and they did apologise nevertheless its something they ought to address.

We have been dining at Purnima since it first opened, the service and quality of food has always been first class. The menu is extensive but if you want something a bit different always ask the manager for his suggestions I have done this on anumber of occasions and have always had a good meal. It does pay to try a few different dishes rather than stick to one or two, you may be suprised to find that there is more to enjoy than you thought.
