Throughout the past decade, Popadoms has been voted as Voice’s Indian Restaurant and Take Away of the Year numerous times by our readers, and since Waseem has taken over the business he has consistently offered the same great-tasting food that Popadoms is renowned for.

Waseem has also spared no expense in recently renovating Popadoms, giving this much-loved restaurant a well-deserved makeover.

The newly decorated restaurant is bright and airy, with a cream and gold themed décor running throughout. The major part of the renovation comes in the form of luxurious new toilets that have been tastefully decorated, floor to ceiling with luxurious Italian tiles. Renovations were completed at the end of last month, so if you’ve yet to pop in for a nose, make sure that you do!

Continuing the tradition of being one of the best curry houses in Newport City Centre, owner Waseem has revamped the menu too and Voice was invited to sample a few of its dishes as well as take photographs.

New dishes include a chi tikka with cheese, a mulai chi tikka, a royal platter to share, a mulai kofta, a muchli sagg – a fillet of fish in a spicy spinach sauce, and a Murghi mushroom bahar (which Voice highly recommends).

From traditional and well-known dishes to in-house specialities, Waseem takes pride in the menu offered, spending hours selecting the best produce to use – often importing many of the dried goods directly from Bangladesh.

Open seven days a week from Monday to Sunday from 5pm until late, pop into Popadoms for great food and good times.

You can choose to dine in the recently refurbished restaurant or opt to eat your expertly cooked food at home, with some great collection offers available in the form of set meals for two persons.
