I had the very good fortune to visit Prashad on the outskirts of Bradford this New Year’s Eve and what a fantastic place it is. Although modest from the outside it as a Michelin Bib Gourmand, two AA stars and serves a delicious Gujarati vegetarian menu.
We didn’t have a huge amount of time so couldn’t go for the tasting menu (although I am planning to go back to try it) so we both opted for a Thali. The nice thing was that although we ordered the same one, they brought a different selection on each plate so we could try plenty of their dishes.
I know at this point I am supposed to list all the ingredients of every dish and talk through each one in massive detail but I was too busy eating to take notes. But to summarise… essentially you get 2 Mini Starters, 3 Curries, Rotli, Rice, Dhal/Khudi & Dessert and this was more than enough for us both. Dishes we tried included an excellent dhal, an aubergine curry, a fantatstic paneer curry, chicpeas of course, a mushroom and potato curry, several delicious starters that were all one or two bites in size but packed full of flavour, and two types of rice.
Take a look at the photo and you can see it’s a fair old feast, letrally hanging off the edge of the table, and perhaps one of the best meals I have had in the last few years. If you have any concerns about the vegetarian only menu put them to one side and give it a try, it was delightful and I thoroughly recommend it.
Service was also excellent, with each dish explained in some detail (still took no notes) and they have a great beer menu. With family links to the Bundobust brand you can see where another of our favourite venues got their inspiration from.
Take a look at their website and give them a go, it’s worth he drive https://www.prashad.co.uk/
As always, this is not a paid review, we have no links to Prashad and they did not ask for this review. From memory we paid £78 inlcuding drinks and a 10% tip.
