Authentic food and friendly host

Visited this restaurant yesterday for two friends birthdays- it was a really great place for a group but also cosy for a couple. The manager was friendly and the food was lovely and really tasty. The surroundings are a little shabby chic but I think that added to the authenticity. Great little place- tucked away but worth a visit.

Having found this restaurant tucked away just above the centre of Leeds, we knew what to expect having read other reviews. Strange location at the foot of a block of offices. It could be politely described as 'shabby chic.' However the food was really good and didn't reflect the surroundings. We had a selection of starters, all home-made by the... More

My husband and I went on sat early evening. the restraint is tucked away off the beaten path in the lower level of an office building, Don't let that put you off. We had the 4 starters and bottle of wine for 2 for £20. we had flat bread, humus, Greek salad, eggplant dip, and spicy potatoes in a coriander... More

Early Saturday evening, 4 people inside. Tired façade and décor. We ordered the 4 starters and a bottle of wine for £20. The wine was not very good quality but the food more than made up for it! We had Humous, Baba Ghanhouj, Feta Salad and Batata Hara. They came with warm pitta bread and all were excellent. If you... More

Don't be put off by the exterior of these premises, it does look a bit shabby, but the welcome & the food are well worth the visit. We decided after looking at the varied menu that we would share several starters & dips of our choice, rather than a main meal or meze and were very pleased with our meal,... More

After seeing this restaurant pop up on a couple of "places to go" lists in Leeds we decided to give it a try. My favourite food is Arabic/Lebanese cuisine - developed from living in the Middle East for a few years. Lebanese restaurants up north are few and far between it seems. The restaurant itself was indeed rustic but for... More

I tried this restaurant after a review from a friend. The decor is nothing fancy but the food is excellent - I particularly recommend the seafood with rice which tasted amazing. I was pleasantly surprised considering I never visited before. My friends also ordered the chicken swarma and they highly recommend this too. The owner is a character and has... More

First off, this is not a fine dinning restaurant but an excellent example of simple food executed with nuenced finess. We were greeted well by our host and looked after as if we were in his home. The place does need some work but the food and service make this an excellent venue for regular neighborhood dinning.If I lived in... More

I eat at Fairuz a couple of times per year and the food has been consistently good. My visit last, as were all my previous visits, were before going to gigs in the centre of Leeds. The restaurant had two other customers and like others are mentioned the place looks a tad shabby from the outside but don't let that... More

We visited on a saturday evening. Like many other people have stated in reviews, the outside looked tatty and we stood outside for about 30seconds debating whether to go in or not. I'm glad we did. The food was really authentic and well cooked. The falafel starter was badboi and my date had 'inab' which also was really nice. We... More
