Multi-award-winning Prashad restaurant is something of a local legend. From modest beginnings as a deli and restaurant specialising in vegetarian Indian cuisine, the Bradford restaurant achieved nationwide acclaim in 2010 when it wowed chef Gordon Ramsay and made it to the national finals of his television show Ramsay's Best Restaurant.

Once the word was out about Prashad's fabulous food, keen customers started to travel from far and wide to taste it, so in 2012 they moved to a terrific new location in Drighlington. The building's interior has been transformed into a vibrant, modern dining environment which is the epitome of casual elegance. Set over different levels are three distinct dining areas, which preserve a feeling of cosy intimacy for diners, while the semi-open-plan layout allows just the right amount of buzzing atmosphere to gently permeate.

Prashad was founded by Kaushy and Mohan Patel, but their son Bobby is now at the helm of the family business and his wife Minal is the cooking genius heading up the kitchen. Between them, they have perfected the formula for fine Indian dining, and their mouth-watering dishes are expertly spiced for flavour rather than heat, on a menu that entices vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike - the food is so good; meat really is surplus to requirement.

To commence our meal, a shared platter was the perfect way to satisfy our taste curiosity, presenting us with a range of delectable starter portions to share. Each bite revealed layers of interesting textures and spices, balancing wonderfully against the soft freshness of the lassan paneer tikka.

The visual highlight of the meal was undoubtedly the massala dosa; a traditional Gujarati street food. The feather-light crepe is made from a specially fermented mixture of lentils and rice, making each mouthful of the beautifully spiced onion and a potato curry exude a subtle, delicious tang.

Each dish was paired with freshly made chutney to introduce further infusions of punchy flavour to the meal, from green tomato with lime to coconut and coriander. It was just another example of the attention to detail that sets Prashad apart.

Even the puddings impress - the delightful gajar halva and kulfi are not to be missed
