4 out of 5 stars

A permanently packed pair of Punjabi restaurants. The Princess Street site is far smaller, but the food is great at both

Now occupying two sites in the city centre, Princess Street and Riverside, EastZEast offers authentic Punjabi cuisine in stylish, modern surrounds.

The original restaurant is an intimate affair, small and cosy, all shiny black tilling, chrome and glass. Having won numerous awards, a much larger location opened at Riverside, where two floors offer a huge dining space with bar, lounge and private facilities. Takeaway is available from both.

Neither restaurant is the place to go for a quiet meal, since they’re so reliably packed. The reason is simple – they serve some of the best Indian food in the city. The family who own EastZEast have been working on perfecting their menu for decades since starting out in Bradford, so they know a thing or two about adding a touch of class to familiar dishes.

I've walked past this place for years, admiring the lighting and style of the bar without ever having walked in.
Last night, I finally sampled the delights of East Z East.

The bar area and the restaurant are both beautifully designed.  A 1970s Tandoori House this is not.

The prices for the familiar Indian dishes may be slightly North of the local curry shop, although the quality of the dishes is outstanding with none of the oiliness usually associated with the cheaper end of this market.

Chicken Biryani:  spot on.
