Mumtaz

Located at the top of Great Horton Road in Bradford, Kashmiri restaurant Mumtaz is still standing on its original 1979 site. Beginning as a street stall and morphing into a fully-featured restaurant, after forty-one years it’s still going strong. Mumtaz now also has its own line of ready meals. The interior is contemporary but friendly and the restaurant seats up to 500, making it perfect for large events such as weddings and corporate hospitality as well those dining alone or in small groups.

The appetiser menu includes chicken tikka on the bone, marinated in a special mix of Mumtaz spices and char-grilled. Then there are the Buffalo Wings in honey and fresh chillies. There are roadside favourites including Chana Chaat, a salad of potatoes and chickpeas in sweet and sour tamarind sauce, and Bhel-Puri, a mix of potato and sev mamra with coriander and chilli sauce.

Mains include the Murgh Makhani, a version of Chicken Tikka Masala invented by Mumtaz back in 1979. It’s the classic chicken pieces marinated and fried in tomato and onion, resulting in a hot but soft and creamy dish. Then there’s the less well-known but delicious Paya, lamb trotters, cooked on a slow heat overnight. Keema Aloo represents the archetypal mincemeat and potato dish, unpretentiously satisfying as ever. Vegetarians are well catered for, with the Paneer Dopiaza – a sharp, citrusy tomato based cheese curry – and Butter Paneer.

Nearby you’ll find the picturesque Horton Park with its bowling green, and the 613 and 614 bus from the town centre will take you to and from. If you can’t physically make it in but want to try the food, a range of Mumtaz curries – karahi, korma, et cetera – are available through stockists listed on the website, and there’s also a restaurant takeaway menu available featuring many of the main restaurant dishes.
