A family-run restaurant renowned for its Indian delights has retained its Bib Gourmand.

Prashad, which serves up vegetarian Gujarati dishes, has been a staple on the Michelin Guide for some time. 

The Bib Gourmand is handed to restaurants that fall just below earning a coveted Michelin Star for their food and dining experience.

Michelin said it is a “just-as-esteemed rating that recognises friendly establishments that serve good food at moderate prices”.

The Michelin Guide’s website reads: “Set over two floors of a former pub, this colourfully decorated, family-run restaurant offers interesting, original Indian vegetarian cooking inspired by the owners Gujarati heritage. Dishes are substantial in both size and flavour and spicing is well-judged; the dosas are popular.”

Prashad has come a long way from the days Kaushy and Mohan Patel converted a laundrette into a tiny deli back in 1992.

Their son Bobby took on the reins back in 2004 with his wife and head chef Minal.

Now based in Drighlington, there are fond memories of where it all began in Bradford, where customers would queue down the street to get their fix of Kopra Pethis – garlic-infused coconut in crispy potato casing. It’s a dish that remains on the Prashad menu to this day.
