This Leeds curry house is officially the best in Yorkshire and Humberside

Table 26 have been open for less than two years but are already recognised as the best curry house in Yorkshire.

Table 26 in Swillington has been crowned the Restaurant of the Year award for Yorkshire and Humberside at the English Curry Awards.

Knowing where to get a decent curry from is an essential part of British life.

All the poppadoms, onion bhajis, pilau rice and not to mention the array of flavoursome curried dishes available in Leeds can be overwhelming at times: there are over 60 different options on takeaway apps in the city centre alone.

But officially, Table 26 is the the best place to get your bhaji fix. The curry house was crowned Restaurant of the Year in Yorkshire and the Humber this week at the English Curry House.

The popular restaurant has been open for less than two years but has already made a huge impact on the Leeds foodie scene.

Describing their journey so far as a “rollercoaster ride“, the local eatery were recognised for both quality and customer service and chosen by members of the public.

The award has specific categories that restaurants must show in order to be considered for the award, these include obvious signs of hard work, determination and impeccable service. The markers also ensured that any restaurant considered were creating and serving “delicious dishes at an excellent standard”.

Table 26 were up against five other highly-ranked curry houses across Yorkshire including Curry Corner, Shama Bingley and Shalimar Restaurant Harrogate but outsawarded their award by English DJ and Presenter, Tommy Sandhu.

The Swillington restaurant is popular with locals but also receive a lot of traffic from Morley, where their previous restaurant, Table 27, was based.

Table 27 closed just before the initial lockdown when Covid-related restrictions were enforced as the owners wanted to downsize.

Table 26 opened in January 2020 and fought through the open-then-close difficulties that the pandemic brought.

One of their famous dishes is the Agni Karahi, a smoking hot dish that comes still covered by flames, a delight to many customers.

Leading up to the festive season, the award-winning curry house have now launched their Christmas menu, offering the perfect opportunity to put the now-famed curries to the test. 

The menu consists of four-courses, with poppadoms, sizzle mix starters and any main course dish from the menu. Finish your Christmas dinner off with a sundry, chapati and traditional Indian sweet.

For £32.95, it’s a steal that even the Grinch couldn’t turn down, but with business booming after their recent award, tables are booking up quickly.
