Pink Elephant - Meltham
Indo-Bangla fusion cuisine is a combination of wild and untamed tastes, which tantalises the palate with alluring array of colours and textures, flavours are as varied as the climates of the Indian Subcontinent. The blends of spices are exotic and somewhat enigmatic.This culinary endeavour is a revival of the Persian/Mogul cuisine merged with the long held traditions of Indian and Bangladeshi cooking styles. Indo-Bangla cooking as we like to call it, is a hybrid style, a synergy of fusion cooking. It is a perfect balance that is reached between a complex myriad of spices and blends.Here at the Pink Elephant we have a deep appreciation of theses exotic spices and their combinations; it is an acquired art form, a legacy full of repetitive disciplines that are taught only to a few promising chefs who go through many years of cooking, blending and tasting. Through these testing arduous challenges great chefs are born, created in a trial of Fire and Brimstone.We have been studying this art for over 10 years and have brought it to some degree into Holmfirth’s own Bengali restaurant, we are the second generation in this family and our reputation is second to none. We like to pride ourselves in establishing a warm friendly ambience whenever we are hosting our “patrons” be it in Holmfirth or at the Pink Elephant in Honley.Through our experience we relish the fact that we can and have been cooking honest homemade style food. So please be our guest and join us in this new and exotic adventure. The pink elephant greets you with the warmest of welcomes.

Apadana is the one and only persian restaurant in Huddersfield and surrounding area.

The Iranian culinary style is unique to Iran, though has historically both influenced and has been influenced by Iran's neighbouring regions at various stages throughout its history. Persian recipes have improved over the centuries to bring out a unique taste out of the freshest and finest ingredients that are used in making Iranian food.Typical Persian main dishes are combination of rice with meat, lamb, chicken, or fish and some onion, vegetables, nuts, and herbs. To achieve a balanced taste, characteristic Persian flavourings such as saffron, dried limes, cinnamon, and parsley are mixed delicately and used in some special dishes.Many foods famously associated with Middle Eastern, and indeed World cuisine have their origins in Iran, such as our most famous dish : Kabab. Ranging from Chelow Kabab, kabab-e barg, Joojeh (chicken) Kabab and Ghafghazi. These are all served with rice and fresh herbs and could be accompanied with Mast-o-musir or Shirazi salad; to get a true taste of Iran. Also our stews each have their individual taste and flavour.
