This is our go to curry restaurant, whether it's to eat in or takeaway. The curries are fresh, tasty and seem very healthy due to the lack of the risidual ghee/oil you get in a lot of other Indian restaurants. They often accommodate our off the menu requests and the super friendly owners and staff make you extremely welcome. Plus... More

Thank you for a great review. We do always try to use the minimum amount of ghee in our main courses. We are lucky in Yorkshire to have so many thriving craft ale breweries in our region! Thanks again. More

If me and my partner order curry we always go here, the food is always fresh and tastes amazing whatever we order. I would highly recommended the dal shimla for vegetarians and my partner loves the chicken bhuna. The staff are always really friendly and welcoming when we pick up our food. I would highly recommended this place.

Visited the Corner Cafe with friends in early December. It was fairly quiet in the restaurant, and service was very good. They have a good range of beers, though they aren't cheap. We chose not to have starters, as we hate wasting food, though we did have a poppadom each with pickles. The main course, a tikka masala, was very... More

I was there in December 2016, with my GF and we were greeted by a very friendly and courteous staff. I was not a fan of the Indian cuisine before entering "the corner cafe", but that place made me think again. Highly recommended.

Now I'm not usually a fan of Indian food but my friend took me here for tea and I loved it! The early bird menu is great and good value. The food and service are amazing so I would definitely recommend!

The last time I came here you still had to get your drinks from the pub over the road. There was no upstairs, no spot lighting or laminate flooring. It was pretty basic but had loads of character and fabulous food. Amongst all the revamp I think they've really lost something. There wasn't even a waft of lovely smells as... More

We are delighted that your husband enjoyed his meal. What a shame that you didn't tell us, until you finished eating, that your didn't enjoy your Fresh Mixed Vegetable Shimla dish. We checked on you during the meal and you said everything was great. You ordered the dish hot in strength. Rather than ordering it hot may we suggest that... More

We had the popadoms, which were home made and a lot nicer than I've had elsewhere in other good curry houses. Then went for a naan bread, gorgeous peshwari naan with a drizzle of honey on and a nice size and the curry was excellent, not too oily and full of flavour. excellent service and a reasonable price

Lived in Leeds for years yet somehow never made it to this place, I finally managed it tonight and it fully deserves its fantastic reputation. The food was really really tasty and the staff were lovely, I will be coming back very soon.
