Having lived in York for almost a year now and being a big fan of great food, I have definitely got a few favourite places to eat here. One thing that I do love about York is the wide variety of places to eat - there's always somewhere to go no matter what type of food you fancy; whether it's a traditional pub meal or something more adventurous.
So, here's my top five in no particular order.
Although this has some bad reviews online, I have been here several times and have always enjoyed the food. The carvery is fairly more expensive that what I would usually pay, but the atmosphere is great with a lot of space. It's a great place to go if you fancy a roast dinner, as they are served every day of the week!
Meltons Too is a great place to go if you fancy some traditional high quality food, or if you are going for some drinks with friends and fancy some tapas. The menu often depends on what products are in season, and for this reason the food is always at its best.
Khao San Rd
This is the best Thai restaurant that I have ever been to. The food is really great, the staff are very friendly providing great service no matter how busy they are, and the interior is lovely. Having been there several times now, it is definitely one of my favourite places to eat. I would recommend the duck thai red curry - I have tried a range of meals and this is definitely my favourite one there.

This is definitely the best place to go if you fancy some Indian food. Along with great reviews, this restaurant serves the best Indian food that I have ever tasted. I generally stick to a chicken korma and peshwari naan when I have an Indian, and this was by far the best that I have ever tasted. The service is great too, and although the prices are fairly expensive for an Indian restaurant, it is definitely worth paying that bit extra for the quality that you get here.
Cafe Concerto is situated in a great location, being opposite the Minster, and the interior has a 'music' theme, with violins hanging on the walls, and music sheets used as wallpaper. It has a really great vibe, and is a brilliant cafe to go to for some breakfast or lunch. They do some amazing cakes and desserts too!
