“We had a lovely meal!”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

OK so we 'd bought a groupon intending to have a meal in Skipton after a blissful summertime walk in the dales.... some chance of that this summer! However the voucher was running out and we owed an old friend a meal so made the 30 mile journey over to Skipton to try out the nosh at The Nosh! A phone call as we approached Skipton ellicited excellent directions and we found ample on street parking nearby.
We were warmly greeted and made to feel welcome in the foyer and found 3 parties already eating or ordering.We were intrigued by the boutique style restaurant and much admired the good taste evident in the furniture and table settings. Our prossecco was indeed sparkling and the menu had a wide choice of traditional indian recipes, some with a modern twist as well as fusion dishes of salmon etc once again with some nice touches that hinted at a bit of flair in the kitchen.Two of us had marsala fish which was superb...extremely fresh, beautifully lightly toasted and succulent pieces of fish delightfully presented with a duet of sauces and light garnish. My wife's chicken puree was beautifully tender and sauced with a nicely spiced sauce ,the puree itself was a little heavier than at our local favourite restaurant but tasty.
The main courses of butter chicken, chicken hydrabady and a lamb and spinach dish which I have forgotten the name of were all beautifully sauced and spiced in line with the chilli warning code on the menu. The quality of the meat was a cut above the usual run of the mill offerings and were well marinated and thus beautifully tender and tasty, The accompanying rice and rotis were also of a high standard. Excellent!
The wine I'd chosen a rioja (£15.95) was unavailable but the substitute valdepenas reserva was fine and was only charged at £12.95 .... these guys really deserve to succeed because this kind of gesture is as rare as duck's teeth!
There was also a slight hiccup with the 'chi ' as I'd asked for no milk and expected a small cup but was served a large cup of over milked assam tea. The waitress wanted to take it back but we needed to get going so I kept it but was again pleasantly surprised when the owner came to apologise and said the teas were gratis. As one member of our party had been called in to work and unable to join us, the owner supplied his meal in a take away container which was very well received when he came off duty. These people could not have been more attentive or amenable and once again deserve to succeed. It's quite a drive but we shall call in again if we are passing without a doubt!

“Lovely food, friendly place”
Reviewed 19 November 2012 via mobile

Just eaten at Nosh & Nawaab in Skipton. Nice, quiet place, with excellent staff. The starters we ordered were amazing and the main course tasted authentic, although one was a little on the buttery side. Naan bread was particularly good - light and cslightly crispy, rather than thick and doughy.
Would definitely eat here again!

“Classy & Tasty”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

An excellent meal. The tandoori fish starter was the highlight but the lamb (something I couldn't pronounce or attempt to write) was close behind. The atmosphere was relaxed although it appeared formal on 1st impressions due to the high ceilings and table lay-out. The waiter was knowledgable and efficient although the service was a little too quick for my liking with the main courses arriving as soon as the starters were finished (hence the loss of a star from the rating). I would gladly eat here again.

“A Refreshing Change”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

The food was fresh and tasty - very nicely spiced and the staff were very attentive and helpful. It was just strange that we were the only one's there and when we had finished our mains the plates were cleared & we were asked if we wanted the biil - there was no offer of coffee or hot towels - which we have never encountered in an indian restaurant. We will however visit again, as they offer something different.
