We visited again last weekend and everything was just as good - lovely food. My Szechuan vegetarian dish was lovely, as were the ribs for starters. The staff are always really attentive and not thin on the ground. Will definitely visit again. Very reasonable prices... We didn't have it this time but they do a main course dish for £1... More

We have been going to this restaurant since it opened and have never had a meal which is less than excellent. Whenever we go to any other Chinese restaurant we can't help but compare it to Sweet Basil and very few come up to this standard. The staff are amongst the friendliest and most helpful we have come across. If... More

Situated on a small parade of shops on the Roundhay Road. Plenty of parking outside or opposite in the service road. A smart restaurant on a drab parade, nicely decorated inside, in a typical Chinese style. We were pleasantly greeted on arrival and shown to our reserved table. Drinks order quickly taken and executed. A large varied menu was available.... More

The food here is consistently excellent. On this visit (a Friday at 7.00pm) we had the mixed starters and crispy duck between 3 of us. The prawn toast here is fantastic. Mains were all good as well - just love their king prawn with cashewnuts. Prices are reasonable, particularly as when spending over £25 you get the dish of the... More

So since my last review we've been 4 more times and again at the weekend. Food is excellent. Presentation is impressive too. Not had a bad dish and tried quite a few now! The food is consistently good with every visit, and dishes we have repeated are equally consistent between visits. Had relatives with us on this visit and they... More

Lovely staff and food here and nice peaceful bit of Leeds to visit with plenty of places to park nearby. It seemed very popular for takeaways, with people coming in and out constantly :)
