Description: Prashad is an award winning Indian vegetarian restaurant in the heart of West Yorkshire. It is based in a renovated pub building in Drighlington, which has been transformed into an intimate and vibrant Gujarati eaterie. It features a large bar area where the in-house mixologist serves up perfectly-matched cocktails, locally-brewed beers and wines with roadside snacks and Indian tapas. There are three different dining areas and a snug that can be individually booked for private parties. The open pass kitchen brings the passionate Head Chef and her team closer to the customers. In the last 12 months alone we have been awarded the Morrisons Magazine Great Grub Award 2013, the Yorkshire Life Chef of the Year 2013 (which Minal and Kaushy won jointly), the Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand 2014, and the Yorkshire Evening Post Oliver Awards Best Indian Restaurant 2014!

“Great Experience with Gujarati Cuisine”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We were staying not far from Prashad and stumbled on the restaurant looking for some vegetarian option. What a pleasant and delicious surprise. We stopped in and looked at the menu and the manager suggested that we book a table if we were interested, which we did. The restaurant was chocked full and I see why. I like Indian food but my experience with the regional cuisines was somewhat limited. This was our first experience with the Gujarati style of Indian food. The food is spicy but not overwhelmingly so. We chose the Chef’s Thali, which was an assortment of starters and mains selected by the chef. We asked if they could give us two different Thalis so we could try a greater variety of dishes. We ended up with a great array of dishes and tastes. The only downside is if we come again, I am not certain which one of the mains or starters I would order again because I wasn’t sure what I had gotten on the Thali. Otherwise, the meal was great. Excellent wine selection as well. Service was friendly and understated. Although we enjoyed our meal and were quite full from the thalis, I would recommend trying the homemade vegan ice cream and sorbets, both excellent fire extinguishers and really tasty.

“Excellent food and service but watch the prices”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We have just had a great evening at Prashad. The service could not be bettered. The food is of the top quality. From the pickle tray and poppadoms to the freshly cooked naan it is obvious that great care has been put into the combination of flavours and authenticity of all the dishes. So, no complaints whatsoever about what we we were served.

However we did come out wondering if some of the dishes were overpriced. For example the Bombay Bataka was very tasty but was, at the end of the day, just potatoes in tomato sauce, and it cost £9,95. Likewise the aubergine and potato main dish.. On the other hand the Naan Bhaji was a much more substantial plateful for the same price.

It is difficult to justify not taking into account the cost of ingredients when pricing up menu items and the mark up on some of Prashad's dishes must be pretty high. Choose your dishes with care in order to avoid leaving with the feeling that you've had a great meal served by attentive staff but your purse has been taken advantage off in the process.

“A non-vegetarians account of a vegetarian experience”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

The service was friendly without being intrusive, the table was lovely, and our party chose to have a set meal for eight. This meant we could chat instead of study a menu while we enjoyed our drinks, cocktails were delicious.Poppodoms and chutneys were supplied and were as light and fresh as possible. The starters were outstanding and presented so attractively , we were all smiling before we had taken a taste. Every person in our party was captivated by the delicious variety of texture and taste. This was not just eating, this was mouth dancing. Loved it. The mains were light but satisfying and I could barely fit the dessert in, sweet and beguiling as it was. A brilliant meal to celebrate my son's graduation. It could not have been better.He got a First, and so did we!! Thank you Pappu , for a lovely occassion

“Great vegetarian Indian food”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

A convenient setting, great access and parking. A very welcoming team of staff and excellent choice of quality cocktails and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). Nice to see Ilkley brewery real ale too.

The food was sublime.

We had been to the Bradford restaurant before they moved and this is every bit as good, closer to us and (probably) a safer place to leave your car!

The starters, Dosas, and the Bhindi dishes all especially good. Rotis to die for, puris too.

Desserts, if you have space, are the best ever in an Indian restaurant, but likely to give you unhappy teeth for a hour or so.

Fantastic flavours; we are not vegetarians but this shows what can be done without our western addiction to dead animal!

thanks
