India and China are two of the great nations of Asia, and Indian and Chinese cuisine are world-renowned for their bold and fresh flavours, so to get both of them in the same restaurant is something special. Imperial Restaurant & Bar in Airport House on Purley Way brings together the highest points of the two food cultures and serves them up in opulent surroundings, in Croydon on the outskirts of London.
Imperial Restaurant & Bar is all about the fusion of cultures. Their base at Airport House on Purley Way used to be part of Croydon Airport, which is appropriate for a restaurant with such a globe-trotting menu. They bring together Indian and Chinese food in London to great effect, offering a repertoire of dishes that are spicy and flavoursome, as well as having plenty of options for vegetarians, vegans and those with gluten-free diets. With its gorgeous setting and chic furnishings, Imperial Restaurant & Bar is perfect for special occasions.
Indian and Chinese food – as anyone with experience of dining in London will know – are very diverse cuisines, and at Imperial Restaurant & Bar, they know their way around both of them. Their restaurant on Purley Way in Croydon offers both Peking duck and tandoori specialities, stir-fries and samosas, naan and noodles. Such a marriage of cultures is unusual in London and rarely better, so book your table now to find out what the fuss is about.

The Imperial Lounge is our favourite Indian restaurant in Croydon. Staff are always friendly, efficient and happy to make suggestions if you are not familiar with the food. The food itself is delicious and portion sizes generous. We can not fault it at all.
