Food is just lovely and like the food I was served in India!

Do not come to this restuarant if you want a bog standard india meal!!! The food here is authentic and is just like I ate in India not the bright red masala sauces of many indian restuarants. The food is always cooked to order and good food shouldn't be rushed you are dining for the experience not... read more

Had heard very good reports about this restaurant, so we saved going for a special occasion. Totally disappointed. The place itself was dismal with no atmosphere whatsoever. The entrance should have made us turn round there and then. Hindsight eh?? The bar area had three dining chairs plonked there. Hardly an inspiring aperitif. There was only one waiter for the...

Thank you for your review and taking the time to write. As the owner of the restaurant I was upset to learn of your experiences, especially as you can see we typically receive excellent reviews. I personally serve all customers in the restaurant and have to say I was not made aware of any of the above at the time.... More

We visited 1875 after reading a review by Oliver. Actually the same evening as Kasrim and his family. I remember them as apart from one other couple we were the only people there! I'm not crazy about restaurants where I have to shout to be heard. On the other hand I don't like to have to whisper in order to... More

Visited the restaurant based on a recommendation from a friend. Itw as worth the 45 minute drive from where we live. It is located at Menston Station so there was no worries about finding a parking space. The owner welcomed us and told us that none of the food there was precooked. The menu in the restaurant was quite different... More

Decided to go here based on the reviews on trip adviser, and we weren't disappointed. Had a wonderful meal in this lovely little restaurant. The place is focussed on delivering a fine dining experience focussed on genuine Indian food. Knowledgable and very friendly staff make this a place we will be visiting regularly!

Manjinder is a great host, and the food is excellent! We thought carefully about our chosen dishes, and were delighted with our choices - wonderful seabass (chili level 4 for me) and the pork (chili level 7, with extra spices on the side for my husband), accompanied by delicious naans and pilau rice. Would highly recommend this 'hidden gem' for... More

A couple of weeks ago, at the end of a very tough day, I got off the train at Menston and went to investigate 1875. I wasn't sure there really was a restaurant here, above the station office but I wanted there to be one. And there was. Not just any restaurant but the finest Indian restaurant I have ever... More

We decided to dine at this restaurant based on the excellent reviews on tripadvisor. This indian didn't match the reviews (4.5 score), it exceeded the reviews, I would rate this way above the highest mark of 5! It is a hidden gem and with food this good I doubt it's going to stay hidden for much longer. The restaurant is... More

Whilst we were at the Ryedale Show in August 2013 we attended a cookery demonstration given by the chef of the 1875 Restaurant. We were really impressed at the use of fresh spices, no colouring and the demonstration as a whole. We tasted the food and the flavours were excellent. The restaurant is 60 miles from our home, but we... More

We have tried this restaurant twice now. .I have a passion for Indian/Gujarati/Pakistani/Bengali food. ALL very different. So to go back to the 1825 was nice. . Meeted and greeted by the passionate owner. Different things on menu from our last visit. I love fish and the Monk fish excellent, flavours so subtle we both loved it. Once again a... More
