Featured Leeds Restaurants
. La Grillade
French restaurant in Leeds
Wellington St - LS1
2014 Review: Despite the proliferation of steakhouses and grill restaurants in Leeds in recent times, this remains THE go-to for steak frites; from the lovely atmosphere, to the excellent-value authentic French food, this Gallic spot is still a real all-round hit, especially with the business set.
. The Man Behind The Curtain
British, Modern restaurant in 68-78 Vicar Ln
Top Floor Flannels - LS1
Amongst the most notable restaurants in the UK Michael Hares unforgettable and must-visit city-centre venue is truly unique and improving exponentially. Its a barn of a room a rooftop space over a mens clothes store, bizarrely entered through a shop but service is exemplary and in any case you are here for the cooking: a tour de force of whimsical and exciting food (some dishes reduced us to giggling schoolchildren at their brilliant audacity) from an utterly beguiling menu that superficially looks gimmicky, but what it delivers is just remarkably delicious.
Italian restaurant in Headingley
115 & 107 Otley Road - LS6
Still the best Italian place to eat in Leeds after 36 years according to fans of this Headingley stalwart. With its tasty, interesting grub and friendly, efficient service, this noisy staple could teach some fine dining places a lesson or two. They keep reinventing themselves and now have a wonderful salumeria a couple of doors away, which is a great all-day café with lots of Italian products to buy.
Indian restaurant in Leeds
72-74 North St - LS2
Mrs Hansa Dabhis city-centre stalwart serves some of the most interesting Gujarati food you could wish to taste, and the colours that emerge from the kitchen are an Instagrammers dream. Even for a devoted meat-eater, the place is a real haven (my veggie friends can feel good, and I dont feel short-changed!)
. Fuji Hiro
Japanese restaurant in Leeds
45 Wade Ln - LS2
The portion sizes are huge and damn tasty at this basic but wonderful city-centre ramen bar offering a proper cantina feel.
