A personal favourite, popular Indian restaurant Tamatanga in Trinity Square, always seems like it’s brimming with eager people. Offering Indian food with a modern twist, the contemporary restaurant offers traditional Indian food but with flavours that appeal even to locals. The restaurant has perfected the taste of an Indian home but with a balance of British twist.

With an amazing range of food right from breakfast to dinner, the place also offers a variety of student discounts (including 50% off on Sunday). You’ll definitely find me there enjoying the mini-breakfast every Sunday!
There are a lot of popular restaurants offering a taste of Thai cuisine in Nottingham. From Thaikhun to Tarn Thai to Zaap, but the relatively new establishment on Carlton Street offers the same at a much more affordable price. Whether dining alone or with someone else, Paste is sure to offer a great meal with a really affordable bill at the end. This is one of the best food places in Nottingham.
This cute, quiet café on Pelham Street is quite easy to miss if you’re walking by it. I discovered it by chance and the mouth-watering English breakfast and variety of homemade pastries on offer plus the airy outside seating made me fall in love with it on the first try. Rest assured I’ll be visiting this cafe as much as I can.
