Prashad, Drighlington

Overtall Rating – 4.5/5

Great food, service & atmosphere!

Prashad is an award-winning Vegetarian Indian restaurant, based in the Drighlington area of West Yorkshire. I had been meaning to visit for a while, then I received an email from Travelzoo for a voucher for 2 starters, 2 mains and a glass of prosecco each for £29 and felt I couldn’t miss out on this!

We ate at Prashad on a Sunday night and it was quite busy. The decor was lovely – relaxing, very clean & smart. The customer service was great. The food here was extremely tasty and satisfying. I am not a vegetarian myself, however as you know I am always open to trying different cuisines, and the food here certainly didn’t disappoint!

Our meal started with a complimentary amuse bouche of a Vegetable Kofta (be careful as mine didn’t seem hot from the outside, but the inside was and I burnt the roof of my mouth!), but in any case this was yummy!

We then opted for the sharing starter platter where we basically got a taster of everything on the starter menu, we loved it! Well worth it if you like trying everything! Even the sauces that came on the plate were delicious.

I then was torn between the chickpea curry or the paneer curry as I LOVE paneer. I opted for the chickpea (Chole) for something different; a multi layered chickpea curry with tones of cinnamon and star anise. I enjoyed the curry but is was so filling I couldn’t manage it all (took a doggy bag home or course!) I would love to try the Paneer Massala next time.

We also tried the Massala Dosa; Lentil & rice flour crepe with a spiced potato & onion curry served with lentil broth and coconut chutney. Very tasty and a bit unusual, a little awkward to eat, but worth a try! We shared chips, rice and chapatis with our main dishes, which was probably way too much.

Prices were about standard for a good Indian restaurant with starters costing around £7/£8 and mains around £10/£13, however I was really pleased with my experience here so I think I will keep an eye out for any more vouchers which are superb value for money, and I’ll try the paneer!
