Bollywood Brasserie Opens At Holiday Inn Leeds Bradford

What seems to be popular at the moment is for hotels to have their restaurant run by a popular upmarket chain. A Yorkshire hotel though have decided to go against this and be different.

The Holiday Inn Leeds Bradford have come up with a very interesting concept - turn your restaurant into a Bollywood style restaurant and name it the Bollywood Brasserie!

The hotel itself is situated by Tong village inbetween Leeds and Bradford. Guests will not need to leave the hotel to eat a good Indian meal as it is now literally on their doorstep.

The restaurant also welcomes diners who just want a good meal. The chef is originally from India via Birmingham and now lives in Bradford. The countryside hotel is handy enough for Leeds and Bradford but quiet enough to feel that you have left the city behind.

Recently modernised to a high standard the restaurant has comfy chairs and excellent service.

The Asian menu has starters such as Chicken Tikka priced at £5.95, Lamb and Fig Seekh Kebab (4 pieces) again at £5.95 and even Tandoori Salmon priced at £8.95.

I tried the Chicken Khas Korma which was infused with mike sauces, not too hot so that you couldn't taste the chicken. It was one of the best curries I have eaten this year. Birmingham's loss is Bradford's gain.

There is also a vegetarian menu which includes Paneer Lababdar and Methi Mutter Mushroom Palak both priced at £7.95.

In keeping with the Indian tradition there is a Shisha Lounge.

If you want a more traditional British meal then there is still a separate menu which includes fish and chips, burgers, steaks etc.

It is certainly different, I hope that it is a success as it deserves to be.
