Bradford – a city in West Yorkshire – is widely known for its active advertising campaign to attract tourists. First of all, you can read about all the city sights in any Bradford free guide – from well-known universities and affordable student accommodation Bradford to the village of Saltaire, which was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Many Indian shops and restaurants that aided the city to become the curry capital of Britain in 2011 can be found among the places that attract tourists to the city. The city has hundreds of different Indian and Asian restaurants.
Indian restaurants in Bradford offer widely recognizable meals. The most common Indian dishes in local restaurants include spicy Chicken Tikka Masala, traditional shrimp Biryani rice dish and the extremely spicy Vindaloo curry dish.
If you want to try original curry, we strongly recommend a trip to Bradford. Here you should visit the freshest and most distinctive restaurant in the city – The Nawaab. This restaurant offers an extensive choice of dishes for all tastes, but we recommend trying specialties of local chefs first of all. The oldest of the curry restaurants in Bradford is certainly The Kashmir, on the same street with Alhambra Theatre, just a little further. Upstairs you will find a decent restaurant with white tablecloths, sparkling silverware and helpful waiters. Real experts usually go to the basement, where you sit with strangers side by side at a long table covered with plastic. In this curry house they do appreciate the flavor of authenticity and do not use spoons.
In general, Bradford offers curry restaurants and cafes both for meat eaters and vegetarians. According to Tripadvisor, the best curry restaurants in Bradford include My Lahore, Akbar’s, Rajshahi and others. According to The Guardian, Bradford’s top 10 budget restaurants include Karachi, Prashad, Shimla’s and others. These restaurants offer traditional Asian dishes at reasonable prices. A lively festive atmosphere is perfect for parties and family dinners.
You can see a long line in front of the most popular curry houses in the evening, so be sure to make a reservation in advance. There are many delicious dishes that will come to your taste for certain. And if you are not familiar with the dishes offered, you can always count on friendly and attentive waiters.
