It’s often hard to find good food in family-friendly venues, unless you’re happy with a dried out carvery. But my luck was in last Saturday night when I took my daughters to review a meal out at Abdul’s Indian Restaurant in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
There are two Abdul’s in Wakefield one on Broadway in Lupset, and the one we went to opposite Trinity Walk on Jacob’s Well Lane on the outskirts of the city centre. There’s also an Abdul’s in Pontefract too.
I’d only ever heard of well-known Indian restaurant Abdul’s as a take away so I was unsure what to expect when dining in.
Eating out at Abdul’s in Wakefield
As soon as we entered the venue bustling with customers, we were pleasantly surprised. It’s smart, bright and simple decor is inviting as well as it being spotlessly clean.
I was surprised to see exciting looking dishes served in large steel pans rather than the normal plastic containers.
It is casual dining at its best.
Abdul’s reminded me of the eateries back in Malaysia where some of my family live.
The menu is extensive and it also tells the story and values of Abdul’s.
There’s lots for spice lovers and for kids too. I went for the creamed Masala Mushrooms to start with. And a spicy mixed vegetable curry for mains.
The kids went for the burger and fries meal deal. And we took out a lamb kofta wrap for my husband who had to work late.
The food was tasty, spicy and home-made. It was some of the best Indian food I have eaten since moving to Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
The staff were really polite and very attentive, they couldn’t do enough for us. They didn’t even seem fussed when my kids inevitably made a mess with their fries!
It was a really nice atmosphere with a constant stream of customers and we know why as the food was great value and authentic.
We will definitely be returning as a family to eat in and take out.
And if you need an excuse to go…
