Many food critics say that Yorkshire is the best place in the UK - and possibly even outside of India itself - to enjoy a great curry. Thanks to historical patterns of immigration to Hull, Bradford and Leeds, this part of the world is blessed with great food. But this means that large numbers of visitors come to Hull's Indianrestaurants, which can get particularly busy at key dining times and during Diwali, Eid and New Year.
