Fantastic food and amazing Team of staff. Very good service. A++++++++++
We as a family including our three little daughters do enjoy a good Indian every now and then, but I must say the Garforth Aagrah is in a different league altogether. You realise that soon as you find yourself looking at one hit signature Pakistani (wider classification Indian) dish after the other. And imagine all that in a buffet style dinner experience. All for under £20 per person. You will be spoilt for choice and will definitely need some time to adjust your bearings. I had heard much about Muhammad Aslam who has somewhat of a legend status among the U.K. Pakistani/Indian food connoisseurs and is regarded as arguably the best Indian restaurateur in the country. Aagrah Garforth is one of his chain of restaurants and it was indeed a pleasure to meet his son Waseem here who manages this particular branch. The family’s been in this business for well over four decades now but the passion and excitement in which young Waseem spoke of this restaurant (as if they’re just starting) was quite impressive. It was great to see how the main chef and the patissier would come out, on and off, keeping an eye on their dishes just to make sure things were alright. The manner in which they presented and introduced their food, suggesting what went well with what, clearly showed their strong sense of ownership and how proud and passionate they were about their cuisine. The waiters were equally attentive and friendly. We’ve been to an Aagrah before, one closer to home, but soon as we found they had three branches offering buffet namely Pudsey, Mid Point Bradford and Garforth, this being the closest, we thought let’s give it a go. And they did not disappoint. The buffet style + all Indian can get a bit overwhelming, especially for children, so the usual walk around to see what’s on offer before you actually grab a plate and dig in is essential and highly recommended. The food tasted very good and authentic (I know the word has lost its credibility but not in this case). The salad bar was impressive with an assortment of chutnis which we could tell were freshly prepared. It’s a great restaurant to bring family and friends and we will definitely be returning soon. They have a huge car park so absolutely no problem with parking there.
Had the week day buffet menu and was really impressed by the sheer volume of choice available. The staff were excellent and the customer service was outstanding. One of my colleagues mentioned he'd have preferred steak chips over the fries on offer... They appeared a few minutes later with little fuss and a generous smile. Everything was full of flavour and tasted fantastic. The exception being the ice-cream which left a lot to be desired. Fully recommended and I will undoubtedly be going again.
We had the week day buffet there was lots of choice and really tasty curries. There's a large selection of salad available and a good choice of starters. We finished with sticky toffee pudding which nearly melted in your mouth, the best I've ever tasted. Also 25% off on the July offer which was great. We will definitely go again and would recommend to anyone
Always great food. I'd always order from the menu as the buffet isn't as good as the main courses. Amazingly friendly and welcoming staff and aovely atmosphere. I'm a repeat customer as this one is better than the one in Leeds City centre by miles. The staff at this one are the ones you want. Always on form. Is it time to go to Aagrah again yet please?!
