The Tawa House, Dewsbury

Whenever the family and I go out to eat, there's always about 11 of us, so we usually head to buffets; because everyone can eat what they want, and as much of it, without breaking the bank.

However this time, my uncle wanted to try something a little different.

Located in Dewsbury, The Tawa House is a halal HMC restaurant with a very unique concept.

So, they have no menus, they use a tawa, which for those of you who don't know is like a circular iron sheet.

You go in, get seated, and then the staff ask how many people the tawa is for (my recommendation: always go for one extra portion) and that's it! Jobs a good 'un!

Food takes about 15 - 20 minutes to arrive, but does it arrive in style!!!
The tawa was huge, and we shared between 4 people.

On the tawa we had:

  • Naan
  • Naan Roti -  which was a mix between chapati and naan 
  • Fish tikka*
  • Chicken tikka*
  • Lamb curry
  • Chicken curry
  • Lamb chops  
  • Seekh kebabs
  • Chicken wings
*Tikka are like pieces of fish or meat that have been marinated and then cooked.

All of these had traditional Indian spices, not spicy hot but quite flavourful.
Here are some more pictures to make you hungry:

My favourites were definitely the lamb chops and the seekh kebabs which were so succulent, having them with soft, pillowy naan and tangy yoghurt and mint sauce meant I was a happy bunny.

In terms of price, it works out to about £20 for a tawa that fed 4 of us. You do also have an unlimited salad and sauce bar, but it was nothing to really write home about.

Oh and I can't forget the mango lassi:

The Tawa House would definitely be more of a social meal between friends that's cheap and cheerful but still quite tasty in terms of food. Probably not a good idea to take a first date here unless you both don't mind eating from the same (huge) plate.
