this is the second time I have visited and the food is always authentic and on point. However, I have had to give 3 stars as the experience was ruined by the constant smell whilst eating. it basically smelled of severe damp/dirty mop! we were...in a corner, but that is irrelevant. Please guys, either find out of you have damp and if you haven't, then invest in a new mop with some zoflora! I would also say if you want people to come back, then sweep up all the rubbish outside. Might be councils job, but it only takes a quick sweep and looking clean and tidy, for customers to return. As for the food, it is great, but the overall experience needs to match. 5 stars for the food.More

Visited the international on several occasions now and they have never failed to satisfy my taste buds!. I've never been let down and honestly I can say that there food is the best in bradford. Came yesterday on a Tuesday where there was no offers...or government discounts and the restaurant was still busy,just shows how the restaurant quality is absolutely top. Considering how busy the restaurant was I was still offered good service by waiters Asif and Adil. They were very attentive and made sure all was good. The atmosphere was nice, good selection of songs and good to see the staff having a laugh! Good job team international.More

Went here with a few friends, and wish I would have read the most recent reviews - the sewage smell is overpowering and it ruined the meal for everyone. Would have rather gone to McDonald's tbh. At first I thought it was just where we...were sitting, and they lit incense to try and cover it up, so they know about it and that is their solution. Why would anyone want to pay £20 per head ( £2.50 for a soda) to gag on sewage for an hour.More

Fantastic evening served by a really experienced and attentive waiter named Tariq. Food was sublime and the decor of the restaurant was an added bonus. Will be returning as soon as possible with more people.

Top quality curry, well looked after. Our waiter tariq was lovely, bubbly along with his top quality service. All in all a great place to go for a curry, can't fault the staff at the international.
