Hull is a city that is becoming more and more well-known for its restaurant culture. Exciting and diverse eateries are popping up every week in the city. The riverside city known first and foremost for its seafood, but it also has a great range of Indian, Chinese, British and Italian restaurants - as well as others from across the globe. One of these excellent Kingston-Upon-Hull restaurants is the Old Custom House, located in Market Place. It is a family-run eatery in the centre of the old town, and it sells a variety of traditional Italian dishes. For starters, try their funghi all'aglio fresco - mushrooms with a garlic and cream sauce - or their tomato garlic and onion bruschetta. Fellow Italian restaurant DaGianni styles itself as fresh and authentic - making it another ideal choice for modern Mediterranean cuisine.
Anyone looking for straightforward and classic restaurants in Kingston-Upon-Hull should pay a visit to East Park Chippy. This good old-fashioned fish and chip shop is one of the best rated in the city. It is located on Holderness Road and is popular with locals and tourists alike. Fish and chip shops like Papa's Fish and Chips are some of the best in the country, due to the freshness of the fish, which is caught locally and then quickly transported to the city's restaurants. Cod and haddock is then covered in a golden crispy batter and served with chips and mushy peas, for the perfect taste of the sea.
The Indian restaurants Kingston-Upon-Hull has to offer are both plentiful and of high quality. For visitors to the city that desire something a little hotter to eat, the The Madras Restaurant is a good place to start. It is situated on Anlaby Road, just to the east of the city centre. It's wise to book a table before visiting, as the restaurant can get very busy, with its very special five-course menu attracting punters from near and far. Another appealing option is Raj Pavilion, who specialise in contemporary Indian cuisine, with meat, fish and vegetarian dishes to suit any taste or budget. For a refined dining experience, try Tapasya, who source ingredients locally and offer a 5-course tasting menu alongside exquisite Indian classics.

Solo's Music Café on Kingston Road in the Willerby area encourages background music with open mic sessions and live musicians, while providing everything customers would expect from a cosy café - homemade tea and cake baked daily, as well as a variety of continental meats and cheeses. Kardomah 94, across from the Guild Hall in the city centre, is another restaurant and intimate live music venue, serenading customers while they dine on delicious pizza or mixed platters.
