Although curries are commonly known as ‘Indian food’ a sizable portion of the restaurants are run by Bangladeshi or Pakistani families and many of dishes you see on the menu are western adaptations of recipes originating from the north of the subcontinent. Yorkshire loves curry and here are some of our favourites

The Aagrah, Yorkshire
A long established and award-winning group of Indian restaurants throughout Yorkshire which also has a conference centre in Pudsey, caters for weddings, has its own line of Indian food products and even offers cookery masterclasses.

The Spiced Mango, Wakefield
An 80-seat restaurant that prides itself on fine Indian dining including vegan and vegetarian dishes in relaxed, friendly surroundings.

Prashad Restaurant Drighlington, Bradford
