About Apadana

Nestled inside the Railway Arches on Viaduct Street in Huddersfield is a restaurant that is resetting the dining agenda in this part of the north. Tired of cliched curry joints, diners are heading to Apadana, a Persian restaurant of some serious esteem, for a genuinely innovative menu, a short drive from Leeds. This is perhaps the place for Middle Eastern food in Huddersfield, and diners are proving to be receptive to the Apadana team’s take on classics like baklava and shashlik that define so much of Iran’s food.

More about Apadana, Bradford

From the exterior inside the Railway Arches on Viaduct Street, there’s not much to get excited about at Huddersfield’s Apadana. In fact, it looks a little bit like somewhere you’d go to buy paint, but this should not deter diners that have made the trip from Leeds from delving into this superior Persian restaurant’s dining room. We don’t judge restaurants by their covers of course, and neither should you, because the food here is something special indeed. For diners as-yet-unconverted to Persian food, Apadana is absolutely the right starting place for your culinary discovery.

Neither Huddersfield nor Leeds has much to say about the food native to Iran. This is a pity, as much of Persian cooking relies on flavours popular with British diners; spicy barbecued meat dishes take centre stage in Iranian cooking. Apadana has stepped into this vacuum with classic Persian flavours and innovative takes on old favourites from their premises on Viaduct Street inside the Railway Arches. For authentic Persian food cooked using traditional techniques, flavoursome dishes and sweet, delectable puddings and a great alternative to Huddersfield’s somewhat staid dining scene, it can only be Apadana.

This was utterly delicious, sophisticated and unusual food, served with warmth and deserved pride. The barberris and saffron rice of the zereshk polow made for a meal of sumptuous flavour and beauty.
