Don't let the negative reviews put you off!!

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... read 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

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

Four of us booked in for dinner. Saw past the tatty exterior and broken front glass door. Owner, who makes Compo look well dressed, tried several times to push us into the set menu, we had to decline and insist on choosing our own dishes. Waited approximately 45 minutes before being asked what we would like to eat. Starters very... More

I have always walked past this restaurant and never thought to give it a try with new places opening every week in Leeds. But last night my friends and I gave it a go. And we were rewarded with fantastic food, I had falafel and then a meat tagine, both were the best examples of those dishes I'd ever had.... More

Been here twice now and we've really enjoyed it- will definitely visit again! It's not fancy by any means, in fact it's quite rustic. We tried the chef's mezze this time (only £16.95 each) and it was superb! We'd really recommend Fairuz for a relaxed but delicious meal out.

Friendly, laid back service. Certainly not fine dining.. But the food was delicious... The starters were better than the mains and next time I go I'll have the mixed mezze. Well priced, friendly and the Lebanese red wine was amazing!!

Don`t be put off by the outside of the restaurant. There was an authentic feel to the restaurant. Excellent atmosphere. The food was very tasty and well cooked. The wine was excellent. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The prices were reasonable.

At first we were hesitant to enter this restaurant. It was empty on a Friday night when we had struggled to get in anywhere else. We were peering in the windows when the owner / manager came out. It felt a bit awkard but, hey we were here anyway. Good move. We were gently pushed towards the Chefs Meze. It... More
