We went for a meal on a Friday evening. Luckily we got a table as it filled up very quickly soon after. The staff were very friendly and helped us choose food to suit our tastes. The food was well presented and was delicious. The only gripe we had was that other tables received crackers as soon as they sat... More

First visit and well impressed. Really friendly, attentive and genuine service with nice chit chat - lovely. Food arrived quickly and was really well presented, hot, tasty, good quality and all for a reasonable price. Saturday night so nicely busy with a good atmosphere. They have a house special dish which you can add for just a quid - why... More

Our visit was an early evening one, midweek. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived but by the time we were ready for leaving it was much more busy. The quality of the food was very good; between the five of us we had a mixture of Chinese and Thai. The waitresses were amazing, ready to bring you your next... More

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
