Welcome to our Abdul's blog. Here you'll find a host of things including cookings tips, new dishes and all the latest news!


    The Sheffield Steelers ice hockey team certainly felt the heat last week, when they visited our Sheffield based diner, to help launch the Steelers Super Spicy curry – a dish named in their honour.


    The players, who visited the diner last Thursday, forgot all about the ice rink for the evening when they we asked them to ‘thaw out’ and sample the Steelers Super Spicy Curry, as well as a selection of their favourite dishes and side orders.

    The team were great fun and a really friendly bunch of guys – we’re happy they chose to come along and sample our menu – they are certainly now our number one fans and after their recent win we will be watching them more closely now too!

    Team Captain, Steven Goertzen gave us great feedback, commenting that the food at was amazing and the staff and management made it an extremely satisfying and accommodating experience.

    It just goes to show though that not everyone can handle the heat when they come into our kitchen, some of the players found the curry a little too spicy saying, although it was delicious, the Steelers Super Spicy Curry definitely has a kick to it!  As you can see from Tim Spencer’s face in our picture (far right)!

    A great night was had by all and on behalf of all the team at Abdul’s, we would like to thank the Sheffield Steelers for taking the time to come and pay us a visit and of course sample our new Steelers Super Spicy Curry. We hope to see them all again very soon.

    Why not see if you can handle the heat and try out our new Steelers Super Spicy Curry the next time you visit Abdul’s Sheffield. But be warned if you can’t take the heat – you shouldn’t be in Abdul’s kitchen.

    We are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new Abdul’s takeaway and diner on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield.

    To celebrate the arrival of a new Abdul’s in South Yorkshire we held a fantastic launch event, creating a fusion of colour and taste on the streets of Sheffield, with a Bollywood themed community dance master class and performance.

    Featuring local dance group AIMTODANCE, the classic Bollywood style routine created a celebratory mood, while samples of our delicious, authentic Indian dishes were handed out to hungry passers-by.

    The event marked the opening of the third Abdul’s site in Yorkshire, which will be managed by our new Franchisee Laurence Nair. We would like to thank Councillor Shaffaq Mohammed, who was on hand to officially open the site and expressed his delight in seeing the transformation from a fish and chip shop to a quality takeaway and diner.

    As well as sampling tasty dishes from the menu, Councillor Mohammed joined in the fun and provided a countdown to the release of around 400 balloons each holding a special tag that when redeemed will entitle the finder to a meal at Abdul’s Sheffield, absolutely free!

    The aim of the event was to hold a celebration that would bring something completely different to the streets of Sheffield and create a real party atmosphere. It was great day, with plenty of food, fun balloons and dancing. Hopefully the people of Sheffield enjoyed it as much as we did and will continue to enjoy our selection of great tasting dishes, just as our brilliant and loyal customers in Wakefield and Pontefract do.

    Here at Abdul’s we are supporting the trend for a more health conscious 2014 with the return of our Healthy Options Menu; a selection of four carefully prepared dishes that are endorsed by Heart Research UK.                       

    The menu, developed alongside Heart Research UK – the leading charity supporting pioneering research into heart disease, was created by Abdul himself in a bid to change perceptions of fast food as an unhealthy option for family mealtimes.

    There’s no risk that just because these dishes are healthier it has to mean they lack in flavour, we can guarantee the dishes will maintain the quality and great taste that has come to be expected from all of our meals.

    People tend to try and stick to healthier options in the New Year, so instead of being wary of takeaway foods, we wanted to bring back the healthy options menu and encourage customers to enjoy a night out without the guilt.

    We launched the menu last year and expect that as people become more health conscious after the Christmas binge they will be requesting these dishes as healthier alternatives.

    Recent research suggests Indian food has added health benefits, with ingredients such as mango possessing high levels of vitamins and garlic being considered a pain reliever, there’s no excuse as to why anyone wanting to eat more healthily can’t do so whilst enjoying an Abdul’s this New Year.
