The concept of Kipling’s was created 17 years ago by Rafiq known to regulars as ‘RAF’, with a passion for authentic Indian cuisine and a desire to present it combined with Western influences. The name was taken from the famous author and poet, Rudyard Kipling, an English gentleman living in India. The result was something quite unique with an unusual ambience It was not a typical “curry house” as the British people had come to know. The result was a relaxed and unique setting with an untypical ambience when we opened our doors.
Our vision was an instant success as our popularity grew thanks to the recommendations from our loyal clientelle and winning many awards from all over Britain and consistently very favourable reviews in the media.
“Lovely food” Visited for an early evening end of term celebration with our daughter. Staff were friendly and stopped at our table more than once for a chat. Food was plentiful and absolutely top notch. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the meal.
“Best Indian Take-Away in Halifax” I always use this place for a take away when I am in Halifax. The restaurant looks nice, but I have not eaten there. The take away food is delicious, I can really recommend any of the King Prawn dishes. Pre-order on the phone. Note that you get 10% off if you collect it yourself or you can have it delivered. Very reliable and pleasant to deal with. They remember your phone number so they can tell you what you ordered last time. It is possible to park outside for a short time to pick up your food.
“Always friendly staff” Been here a few times and always enjoy it. They don't rush you like others do on the street. And they take card payments, definitely will be going again.
“Fantastic Restaurant, Amazing Food every time!” Amazing service, friendly, personable, passionate about his food - Raf is one of the best hosts in the business. The food is so fresh and appetising. If you've never been - then you are missing a treat. Raf has been serving us curries for over 20 years. We knew him originally from Bradford, sadly we moved away, so it was with sheer delight we realised we were in Halifax, and could visit our No1 Restaurant again. Always a family favourite, generous portions - The best curries we have ever tasted. Thank you Raf for all that you do, YOU and your Restaurant are exceptional.
“Superb Asian Cuisine with a fond welcome” Having eaten at the restaurant some years ago we returned with friends on 24th Sept 2016. Having travelled over 20 miles we were not disappointed, indeed the standard was even higher. Between six or us the range of dishes ordered was extensive but every one was excellent and where specific requirements were requested the staff obliged . This is a restaurant worth travelling miles to!
“Poppadom heaven!” Who knew alternating the condiments on a poppadom could be so amazing! Cracking food, great staff. Always consistent. Superb.
