A Beverley Road restaurant has been named as one of the best in the UK.
Tapasya is featured in the 2018 Michelin Guide, published this week.
The restaurant offers Indian food with a stylish, modern twist.
Inspectors for the Michelin Guide described the restaurant as: "White banquettes set under chandeliers, a glass wine cellar, and a wall of water behind the bar set the scene for some sophisticated cooking.

Co-founder Tapan Mahapatra said: "Gaining national recognition is truly an honour, we strive for perfection in all that we do and we are thrilled to be listed in the guide.
"It is a great testament to our team who we are extremely proud of."

A restaurant spokesman said it is suitable for anything from a quick lunch to a special occasion.
"Tapasya offers a truly unique Indian offering in the area," they said.
"No matter if diners wish to enjoy a quick, reasonably priced lunch, or indulge in a decadent special occasion, they ensure that their experience is unforgettable.

"By combining quality produce with delicious Indian flavours and methods, the restaurant is truly unmissable and unforgettable.
"They challenge the traditional preconceptions of Indian cuisine by fusing fresh, Yorkshire produce with ancestral cooking techniques from Northern and Southern India.
"With added finesse and style, they add a fine dining twist to their menus. Head Chef, Uday Seth, is passionate about the local, seasonal produce of Yorkshire.
"Using home dried and ground spices, he expertly enhances its flavour and quality. Trying unusual flavour combinations creates a memorable dining experience for guests, which always excites conversation and enjoyment."
Other East Yorkshire restaurants included in the guide are 1884 Dock Street Kitchen at Hull Marina, Whites in Beverley and The Westwood in Beverley.
The Hope and Anchor in South Ferriby - which often has a waiting list lasting weeks - is also included, as is Winteringham Fields in North Lincolnshire.
