La Cafetiere

6 The Crescent, Leeds LS6 2NW, UK – 07827 290722

Great little gem of a cafe. Customer service was excellent and food was even better with Arab latte. Such a shame I can't post pictures as the presentation of the food was amazing. Really delicious breakfast. Will definetly be back!!

Great staff and the food is amazing, there is nothing to complain about. The atmosphere is very chill and calm, with some of their local music in the background. We couldn't finish the food, so we had it packed in takeaway boxes, my friend left hers in the restaurant and one of the staff members came after us to give to her! What better service could you ask for. Once again, great service and wonderful staff.


115 & 107 Otley Rd, Leeds LS6 3PX, UK – 0113 275 5017

Had a very pleasant evening meal. The atmosphere is nice and cosy, staff is very friendly and the prices are reasonable. It has a great charm of a small local restaurant, where service is very personal. We ordered pasta and it was very good, the portions were big, so it is definitely good value for money. Overall, happy with our visit and would be glad to have a meal there again.

Me and my partner had a great dining experience at Salvo's tonight. Will definitely be back soon for more delicous food! Lovely staff and top notch service. Exceeded my expectations. Big thumbs up.

The Corner Cafe

104 Burley Rd, Leeds LS3 1JP, UK – 0113 234 6677

Simply the best curry in Leeds. Have been going since I was a student (25+ years) Never had a bad meal. Amazing attentive friendly service, early bird menu worth checking out!

Love this place. The food is wonderful and the people who run it are lovely. Never had anything but a brilliant experience

Sheesh Mahal

346-348 Kirkstall Rd, Leeds LS4 2DS, UK – 0113 230 4161

Sheesh has been there for donkeys years. It's reliably good food. Service is always friendly and it's got it's own bar. Can't go wrong really.

Great food and service. Really nice to come eat. Recommended for everyone. Prices are reasonable and the food is amazing

Best Reviewed Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Gusto Restaurant & Bar

151 Otley Old Rd, Leeds LS16 6HN, UK – 0113 267 2100

Staff were really good, food absolutely spot on. Asked to move to a table away from a noisy group and no fuss, nice. Crab linguine at £18 a bit pricey, but the dish was sublime. I know crab meat always pushes a pasta dish price but feels like it's 20 or 30% higher than it needs to be for pasta. Great for lunch.

Great vibes and tasty food! Always a great service. Can be a little pricey especially for drinks but it depends what you are after.

Giorgios Italian Restaurants

70-72 Otley Rd, Leeds LS6 4BA, UK – 0113 278 2030

Had an excellent lunch here with the family. It was empty as it was 12 on a Tuesday. We wanted pizza and I've wanted to try Giorgio's for a long time. Kids meals were very generous portions too! Do visit. Will definitely be back

Delightful place to eat. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is delicious. The price is what you would expect for a restaurant like this, you could dress up or down and feel comfortable


603 Meanwood Rd, Leeds LS6 4AY, UK – 0113 224 9679

Sharing the block with East of Arcadia and Pappa John's, Zucco has brought vibrant tasty food to Meanwood in a range on sharing plates that will satisfy most palates and appetites. I've been here lots of times and the quality is always great. My personal favourites are the lamb dish and an octopus plate that was next level! (Sadly not on the menu recently). Friendly staff, a great selection of drinks and reggae tunes in the background all provide a great backdrop to outstanding Italian cuisine.

What a find! A cut above your average Italian. Good food and a soundtrack that's not overpowering. Go - eat!

The East Village

47-49 Brudenell Grove, Leeds LS6 1HR, UK – 0113 226 3898

Ideal for first or Tinder dates. The cocktails are both varied and exceptional. What’s more exceptional than the drinks menu however is the fried chicken available downstairs. Having had the chicken twice, both times on ‘wing wednesday’, I can safely say that there is not a single eatery in a close vicinity that can offer you better fried food.

Nice place to hang out. Drinks are fairly priced. Most importantly, when visiting the men's room be careful not to go through the wrong door. The wrong door will take you to outside fire escape stairs.. Pretty frightening experience if under influence

Banyan Bar & Kitchen

106 - 108 New Rd Side, Horsforth, Leeds LS18 4QB, UK – 0113 258 8439

Amazing food priced at the higher end of the scale but worth in on a Monday evening when they have 40% off food. Child friendly with separate kids menu and high chairs if needed. Staff are always friendly and smiling.

It's good for a chain. Great choices if you're on a diet. Staff were really good.

Bar 166 & Bistro

166 Town St, Horsforth, Leeds LS18 4AQ, UK – 0113 467 2001

Lovely food and drink - had a burger and the bun was a little on the dry side, but was nice nevertheless. Great service - sang happy birthday to my brothers and gave them two cocktails on the house! We had a great evening.

Great location, fantastic food and lovely service. Highly recommend as a place to eat when in Horsforth. 100% 5 stars :)


Leeds Chinese Restaurants

Maxi's Restaurant

6 Bingley St, Leeds LS3 1LX, UK – 0113 244 0552

This is, and has always been my favorite Chinese restaurant in Leeds. You can come anytime and not have to wait for a table even on a Saturday night. The service and food is excellent and cooked by genuine Hong Kong chefs. A great night out.

Food not wot it used 2b. Salt n pepoer chicken had NO salt or pepper...sweet snd sour just sweet no lovely spicy bite like it used to have. Just average overall really. Gad yo ask THREE times b4 we got our water for the table. Just a shame reallly..know they are closing but why not go out in style instead of overpriced average food??

Mans Market

F, West Point, Wellington St, Leeds LS1 4JJ, UK – 0113 244 0808

This restaurant has a really unique way of ordering. To order drinks you put three drinks menu on a peg above your table and they come and take your order. For food you fill in a card with your order and peg it up. Then another card to get the bill. The food is a range of small dishes and large, so is good if you want to try several things. The staff are welcoming and friendly.

Very interesting experience with a unique ordering style. The food was fanastic and reasonable priced, being served as soon as it is ready so a great place to get lots of little dishes to share (dim sum). The restaurant itself was down in a basement with a good atmosphere and friendly staff. Overall a very enjoyable experience

New Ho Garden

1 Breary Ave, Horsforth, Leeds LS18 5QH, UK – 0113 259 1261

Really good service, great food, menu extensive, full of the expected dishes, but nothing unique. Will definitely return.

Down in Leeds for a couple of days . Went in for takeaway had great service and the food was excellent

Leeds Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants


14 The Crescent, Leeds LS6 2NW, UK – 0113 224 9222

I go here everytime I want a sneaky vegan junk meal that's tastes fab and is cheap! The service is great, the vegan cheese burger is fantastic but the vegan kebab is even better! One of my favourite vegan take aways.

I was visiting a friend and really hungry so googled vegan food. Mardin came up round the corner. They have vegan, vegetarian and meat options but so nice to see so many vegan options and clearly labelled on a massive board with vegan options before the meat and veg options. The staff member working was really polite and helpful even though it was only his first shift. Very reasonably priced too. Much cheaper than the other places I saw nearby.

Lupe's Cantina Mexicana

204 Cardigan Rd, Leeds LS6 1LF, UK – 0113 345 3070

I would give 6* if possible... just amazing place. Small restaurant with soul. Fantastic atmosphere, more than helpful staff, nice and kind. Most important, food - every single dish, whatever starter, main or desert - taking breath away. Tasty, smashed with something difficult to explain... just extraordinary! Long list of Mexican beers, cocktails and tequilas. It was my birthday party so thanks to all staff to make it special. Highly recommended !!!

A great authentic Mexican restaurant in Leeds. An unassuming place in a predominantly student area but attracts visits from across Leeds. There is parking to the rear. A good range of tequila based cocktails and more. Dishes to die for, a range of small and large dishes. You’ll find it hard to decide what to have! Booking for large groups is essential, couples having an early tea on a weekend shouldn’t be too much of a bother but best book... just in case! You don’t want to miss out.

Pizza Hut Restaurants

10, Cardigan Fields, Kirkstall Rd, Leeds LS4 2DG, UK – 0113 279 9876

It was nice..I loved the salad bar.. It's not healthy per say since its full of mayo and doritos but if you want your greens then they are there too.. It's expensive as well... But I think there is a cheaper way to buy if you look for better deals.

Very polite. Nice and clean. Just gave 4 instead of 5 ☆ as some of the things on the menu wasn't available e.g. chips

Stables Pub

Weetwood House 240 Otley Rd, Leeds LS16 5AB, UK – 0113 230 6000

An under appreciated pub hidden in a lovely hotel courtyard sun trap. I don't go here enough and it doesn't spring to mind I'd I'm honest when I'm thinking of nice places to go... But it should do ! Will definitely be making an effort to remember this place in future when wanting to sit outside with a drink

Nice pub in close vicinity to the hotel. Good selection of drink and good quality pub food. The quiz on a Wednesday is a firm fav. £1 per person with food included!

The Fox and Newt Pub

Fox and Newt Pub,, 9, Burley Street, Leeds LS3 1LD, UK – 0113 245 4527

When in Leeds try not to miss this great pub. Tasty dishes, good prices and a very friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended!

The food in this place is insanely good. Bar staff are friendly and its clean. If u are passing or local.. Well worth calling in


34 Arndale Centre, Otley Road, Leeds LS6 2UE, UK – 0113 274 5599

The beer connoisseurs choice. Just on the outskirts of the main drag of bars, this two floored beer haven is well frequented and a great place to sample a plethora of beers. The atmosphere is a bit more upscale, with table seating (though not service) and only a small area dedicated to standing room. Staff will happily advise on the beers available and lighting is eschewed for shadows. Still this is for people who are interested in their beers and not just out for a session.

Great little bar, always a good selection of beers. Also have a broad range of bar snacks available, more than anywhere else that I can think of, for those looking to get their pickled egg fix! They have a policy against letting in large groups, so manage to maintain a nice atmosphere, a pleasant oasis in a sea of costumed pub crawlers
