Jinnah – Bradford

Located a short distance from the main city centre of Bradford is Jinnah. It felt like it had a good vibe and it was very busy when we dined here. A bar area is close to the entrance. The restaurant part is made up of booths and cushioned red, white and black seats. The staff…

Shimla Spice – Shipley

Shimla Spice looks quite decadent with its flocked wallpaper, ornate silver mirrors and little lights covering the ceiling. It has the banner in the window stating that is the Best Indian Restaurant in England 2013 from the English Curry Awards. The Shimla Spice Vegetarian Mix was a good combination of vegetable pakoras, onion bhajis, paneer…

Guglee – Finchley Road

After a spot of shopping and browsing, it was originally planned to go to the movies. But as there was nothing enticing on, dinner out happened instead.

Lots of starter dishes that were coming…

The Sitara describes itself as “The Indian Jazz Restaurant”! We were intrigued and not quite sure what to expect. Entering the restaurant,…
