This is a cosy, modern restaurant serving contemporary Indian food. It is unlike traditional Indian restaurants you might have visited, having more of a bistro atmosphere and style. The menu is varied and offers something for pretty much everyone. The staff are cheerful and helpful, explaining how the menu options work (We found the Early Bird special offer a little... More

So sorry to hear about your experience in our restaurant. We would never knowingly serve a meat dish to a vegetarian customer and obviously we made a mistake there. It is no excuse, but I suspect the staff member who presented the bill hadn't realised that you were vegetarians and therefore hadn't appreciated the gravity of the error. More

We arrived here without a booking on a Thursday evening and were delighted when the accommodating staff managed to find us a table. The early bird menu offered great value and a good choice. Great veggie and non veggie options. Drinks were also reasonably priced. Great place for good food and a buzzing atmosphere!

Always excellent food at the Corner Cafe, my absolute favourite place for Indian food. The restaurant is friendly, good prices and the food is just great, especially the fish pakora which is amazing! I highly recommend, good ales too.

What was most striking about the visit to this restaurant was the welcome - on the basis of leaving a voicemail to reserve, I was greeted like an old friend! The chaat starter was a bit disappointingly bland, but the main courses and breads were great. It’s not cheap for an Indian restaurant, but it’s also not an average Indian... More

The Corner Cafe has been around for a long time, and is still run by the same family, so perhaps Karim recognised you from all those years ago! Glad you enjoyed your visit to our restaurant. More

CORNER CAFE IS THE BEST!!!! The food is always absolutely lovely, and the staff are welcoming and friendly. For any curry lovers in leeds, after much trial and error at other places, I can safely say that this is the place to go

We've been to the corner cafe for years - for anniversaries, birthdays or just if we fancy it. Always receive the best food, service and welcome. they started offering a great selection of beers, local ales and wine a few years ago which provides an extra incentive to visit regularly!
