Itâ€™s often hard to find good food in family-friendly venues, unless youâ€™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 Abdulâ€™s Indian Restaurant in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
There are two Abdulâ€™s in Wakefield one on Broadway in Lupset, and the one we went to opposite Trinity Walk on Jacobâ€™s Well Lane on the outskirts of the city centre. Thereâ€™s also an Abdulâ€™s in Pontefract too.
Iâ€™d only ever heard of well-known Indian restaurant Abdulâ€™s as a take away so I was unsure what to expect when dining in.
Eating out at Abdulâ€™s in Wakefield
As soon as we entered the venue bustling with customers, we were pleasantly surprised. Itâ€™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.
Abdulâ€™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 Abdulâ€™s.
Thereâ€™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 couldnâ€™t do enough for us. They didnâ€™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…
