My wife and I were in Halifax, West Yorkshire on business, staying at the Travelodge, and checked out Trip Advisor to see what it had to say about Indian Restaurants. Masters Ruchee came up as highly recommended, and in the centre of town only 10 minutes walk, so we headed there. The place seemed very quiet at 7.00 pm, but it was a wet Tuesday night, so not surprising. The ambiance was good, the greeting warm, and we had seats by the window. The proprietor Rashid came over and we soon got into conversation. In fact he is Bangladeshi, not Indian, and a charming and friendly man. When the food came he discreetly left us in peace, although he was obviously paying attention as he was quick to produce a glass of water when I coughed! The food was excellent - good quality ingredients, freshly cooked, rich but not heavy, full of flavour, with beautiful rice. (Keema rice can be recommended!) Generous sambals and popadoms, hot towels, chocolate and mints all provided free of charge. Good Qawwali music ( Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan ) on the sound system. Neither quick nor slow service. Price was very reasonable - (£15.00 per head including starters and a beer each) - less than I would expect for that quality. We would certainly go back, not only for the food but to renew our acquaintance with the charming Rashid, and find out how his family are doing. (As God loves the arrow that is straight, so he loves the bow that is steady!) Recommended, thank you
