Every local has their own favourite curry house in Bradford. Unlike a lot of other towns, the curry restaurants here aren't all the same. They all deliver slightly different flavours and when you find one that works for you, then you tend to stick with it, a bit like a political affiliation.
For years I was a follower of the famous Kashmir restaurant. Somehow they achieved consistency for over 20 years, but unfortunately it all changed 2 or 3 years back and the flavour disappeared. After a few attempts at trying to find a replacement I landed at the Punjab and have now become a party member.
It is good honest food in a decent environment. The grilled starters are some of the best you will find. The samosas and pakoras also hit the mark. The mains offer some interesting non standard choices but I have usually stuck to Chicken Ginger and that old Bradford standard, the Karahi Keema. Breads are all good and freshly prepared. Above all, this place is totally consistent, including the service, which is always quick and polite. Spicing is as hot as you require, but the standard offers a nice medium heat with plenty of nicely balanced flavours able to punch through the heat.
Prices are pretty standard, I usually spend between 10 to 12 quid per head. Its worth noting, like a lot of decent eateries in Bradford, its alcohol free.
Its worth the drive, or walk, out of town to get to this place and its close to the Fighting Cock, a real old ale house perfect for CAMRA types - the ideal combination for the middle aged man(or lady) with a slow growing paunch!
