Pappadums offers full flavoured, full-bodied dishes from the northern regions of India. The northern regions are the historical home of Maharajas – the traditionally rich and exotic royalty of India. The north of India provides a diverse mix of the eastern customs, lifestyle, cuisine and traditions to give it a distinctively traditional character, while providing a contemporary style.
Pappadums has captured a flavour of the north, with a menu that reflects its cosmopolitan character and is drawn from the very finest of India’s exotic and varied cuisines. Here you will find the sumptuous cuisine of the Maharajas, a wholesome Punjabi fayre and the healthy dishes of the tandoor. True to the philosophy of our chefs from north India, behind the great cooking – all the masalas are freshly prepared on a daily basis by our experienced master chefs.
