While there are Indian restaurants to be found up and down the length of the UK, few places can match Yorkshire’s curry houses for quality. In the heart of the capital of the county they have one of the best around in the form of Bengal Brasserie, where chef Mohan Miah offers award-winning Indian and Bengali food to the hungry public of York. That means tandoori favourites to start – all the usual suspects are there, from lamb tikka to seekh kebabs – and an array of curries to delight both newcomers and full on curry connoisseurs. We’d recommend going for one of the house specials, such as the gosth-e-laziz, a marinated lamb chop with traditional Bengali spices, or the vegetarian chilli aloo begun, a fiery dish of aubergine and potatoes, cooked in yoghurt with green peppers, and, of course, chillies. Bengal Brasserie is right in the centre of York on Goodramgate, just a short walk from York Minster, so top off a great day out in the historic city with a top-class curry.
Had another lovely meal here. Service is excellent and the food is too. will alway go here when in York. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Top Food and Service. The same every time we visit. The Best Indian Restaurant in York. Staff are efficient and very friendly and welcoming. High Recommend.
Our first time and not the last, excellent food and service. The speciality lamb chop dish was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend. Reasonably priced wine available.
