A lot has happened since my parents Kaushy and Mohan Patel converted a former launderette into the Prashad deli some 24 years ago.
From humble beginnings, Prashad has grown into an award winning restaurant becoming the only two star AA Indian restaurant in Yorkshire and finishing as runners up on Ramsay’s Best Restaurant in 2010.
Although my parents no longer work at Prashad, their family values, ethics, traditional recipes and focus upon sourcing only the finest, local ingredients are still at the heart of everything we do. In fact Mum still oversees the roasting and grinding of our own special Garam Masala mix, containing 22 herbs and spices which we use in our kitchens.
We never rest on our laurels, but we’re delighted with our other awards: Highly Commended (Restaurant of the Year) at Welcome to Yorkshire's White Rose Awards 2016, Food & Drink Business of the Year at YABA Awards 2015, 2 AA Rosette for Culinary Excellence 2015, named in The Michelin Guide and The Good Food Guide, a Bib Gourmand in 2014, the Yorkshire Life Chef of the Year 2013, the Morrisons Magazine Great Grub Award 2013, the Oliver Awards Best Indian Restaurant 2014, and been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor for the last 6 years in a row.
