Gourmet food fans in Yorkshire aren't short of options, and the restaurant selection in Birstall is no exception. With the famous curry houses of Bradford a short drive away, and the cosmopolitan dining scene in Leeds also on the doorstep, diners in the area can explore a dizzying array of cuisines and dishes. But you don't need to travel that far, either. With some exceptional restaurants in Birstall and Dewsbury, local chefs are battling it out with the town's neighbours, giving food fans more choice than ever.
Restaurants in Birstall itself are pretty enticing. For instance, the town has some cracking curry houses that compare favourably with Bradford's more well-known establishments. At places like the Spice Garden, local phaal fans can tuck into classically cooked, fiery concoctions, while the chefs also offer a range of European and British dishes - resulting in a family-friendly menu that everyone can enjoy. It's the ideal place to fill up before catching a movie at the Showcase or stocking up at the Retail Park.
If you zoom out a little at the Birstall restaurants' Quandoo listings, you'll also discover a cluster of fantastic eateries in the immediate area. Dewsbury, Pudsey, and Morley are all well served fine dining spots, with a seemingly infinite supply of superb curry houses, alongside classy Italian trattorias and gastro-bars, as well as Asian fusion specialists and good old British pubs. Whether you want a hunk of roast lamb with mint sauce and roast potatoes (and a perfectly raised Yorkshire pudding or two) or something more exotic, it's a great area to hunt for dining options.
However, if you are a serious gourmet food lover, you won't want to stop there. Bradford is regularly referred to as Britain's 'Curry Capital', and some of the city's most acclaimed curry chefs whip up their masterpieces not far from Birstall. Restaurants like Nawaab in Tong, or Omar's Balti House are among the country's best, so if you have a taste for spice, why miss out? Both Leeds and Bradford have an endless supply of dining venues, and all of the best can be booked with Quandoo.
