Description
‘The Finest Asian Cuisine since 1988’Indian food is a treat for the palate and the soul, with Nawaab considered by many to be something of a culinary sanctuary, with refined, welcoming surroundings and the wonderful fragrance of exotic ingredients and spices seducing the senses.Bradford is home to some of the best Asian restaurants in the UK, with Nawaab universally agreed to be amongst the very finest. Currently celebrating its 21st anniversary, this unique restaurant prides itself on providing diners with an authentic experience. Indeed, to connoisseurs of good food, Nawaab is a byword for quality, with diners having included the Late Princess of Wales, Ian Botham, Imran Khan, Frank Bruno, the Australian Cricket Team, and Dickie Bird. A Nawaab (a viceroy/representative of royalty) was a patron of the arts, architecture, martial arts, horsemanship, beautiful gardens and flowers, poetry, and last but not least exquisite food and wine. And the restaurant’s commitment to providing a culinary experience fit for a Nawaab has ensured the success of the business, and in turn has allowed it to expand into Tong, Huddersfield, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and even Spain. The Nawaab name has become synonymous with high quality traditional Indian cuisine. Although ‘Indian’ cookery is not simply food of a single nationality; it dates back countless centuries and is a combination of the cooking of many nationalities and cultures - the Phoenicians, Chinese, Muslims, Portuguese and other Europeans. It has been influenced considerably by climatic conditions, customs, tastes, health, and religions, namely Hinduism and Islam, with the skill lying in the subtle blending of a variety of spices to enhance rather than overwhelm the basic flavour of a particular dish. It will come as no surprise, therefore, to discover that the highly skilled and experienced team at Nawaab (the head chef at Bradford has been with the company for 18 years) works with traditions, influences and recipes from all over India, as well as neighbouring countries such as Pakistan. The result is a big menu that includes all of the perennial favourites, such as biryani, but also dishes a little more out of the ordinary: lamb haandi, which is meat cooked in a clay pot for long, slow cooking to preserve all of the flavours, and the Nirali Special (an award winning dish from the Chef of the Year completion) that consists of breast of chicken marinated in yoghurt with ginger and covered in a creamy sauce, are good examples.Moreover, as most lovers of ‘Indian’ food know, you can judge a restaurant by its tarka daal, and at Nawaab it is a real feast for the culinary senses; firm, with a truly delicious sauce and a surprising chilli kick at the end. At Nawaab, they are trying to preserve a culture, a tradition and a standard in culinary tastes and liquor, which have allowed it to become an important and highly respected part of the community. Weddings at Nawaab, for instance, really do make the day very special, encompassing everything from simple, streamlined events through to the most creative and theatrical, with catering for up to 150 guests.Then there are private banquets, which ensure that all guests – from 10 to 150 – will be treated to a Nawaabi class experience, whilst corporate conferences, product launches, workshops and seminars enjoy superior catering that surpasses all expectations. A separate room, holding 40, is available with projector, OHP screen, flip charts and other necessities of a good corporate event.Nawaab - the food is divine and the service is fantastic. From dinner with a loved one through to a business seminar where you need to impress, there is simply nowhere better.
