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!

“You don't have to be vegetarian to enjoy the food”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We dined her saturday evening.
Always busy at the weekend but we had reserved a table and were seated on arrival.
Good mineral water (VOSS) which is sourced in Norway.
Poppadoms are nice & light.
The mixed platter to share is always a delight with the dips from the pickle tray though the dips could be a little spicier..
The mains are always very good no matter what you try. We had tarka dall and the chole.
Faluda is a pleasant dessert with the rose water & noodles.
Always enjoy coming here, the atmosphere is good and there is a buzz about the restaurant.
The young lad upstairs was very attentive to all the tables and the service is good.

A tip for carnivores thinking of coming to a vegetarian restaurant is that you don't have to be a veggy to enjoy it here. The food is very good and you won't be disappointed.
See you again soon.... :)

“FIRST TIME AND LEFT VERY IMPRESSED”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We had been talking for some time about going out for an authentic Indian vegetarian meal as I have memories of working in London years ago and a work colleague would cook the most wonderful Indian vegetarian dishes and bring them in to work for us to sample. It so happened that we were in a local cinema recently and saw this establishment being advertised and decided to give it a try. First impressions were formed in the car park – it was a Thursday school night and the car park was full!! In my book that is a good sign… On entering the restaurant we were impressed with the décor – just the right balance between East and West or wherever India is on the map.. We were quickly shown to our table – there are several levels to the building. Being vegetarian virgins were we grateful that our waiter spotted this and was most helpful in explaining the dishes to us. We had the started to share which is a good introduction to the variety of dishes on offer. Overall on what seemed to be busy night, the service was quick, the food was excellent, the staff were attentive and friendly and the bill did not require a bank loan.

“return visit”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

As always, the food and service were excellent. We tried the 'taster' starter platter for the first time - everything on it was delicious. I followed this with my favourite masala dhosa and the other two members of the party had the chick peas and naan bread. Everything tasted fresh and delicious.

“Absolutely spectacular”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Just thinking about Prashad's food makes my tastebuds tingle and my mouth water. For a true taste of India, without the oil and fake "english-ised" curry powders, visit Prashad!! It means HOLY FOOD. And that it is.

“Always delivers”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Our third trip to Prashad and as usual it didn't disappoint. We ordered a bit less this time as portions are a good size and last time we felt guilty leaving some, we still didn't manage the dessert though! Service was good and the food hot, fresh, tasty and delicious. There is always so much choice and the flavours are complex but complimentary. Well worth visiting for something just a bit special. Only little niggle the drinks were very slow arriving!
