We stumbled upon this place by accident on Tripadvisor and couldn't wait to try it out. We visited on a weekday at 6pm and even then it was getting quite busy with large parties. We were pleased to find that the restaurant offered an early bird menu which was a total bargain. The staff there are a complete credit to... More

Hi Claire. What a lovely review - thank you. We do aim for a relaxed, informal and friendly atmosphere, so glad you liked the overall character of the restaurant. The Early Bird is great value at £10.50. I think I know who your waiter was, and will pass on your comments to him. Thanks again. More

A return visit to a frequent haunt over the last 20 years. Superb food with wonderful varied menu with imaginative choices and excellent veggie; great selection of local yorkshire beer and magnificent home made kulfi to finish.

My Wife and I were told about this place, so we went to find out for ourselves. I have to say, as someone who loves a good curry, that the Veg Biriyani was the best I've ever had anywhere in the world - and that's saying something!

Everything was super tasty. We had a sort of buffet meal- where all sorts of dishes were brought over to the table to share. Not too spicy but lots of flavour.

Glad you enjoyed your meal! For large parties we organise a banquet style, sharing meal to give everyone a chance to try lots of different dishes. We find it works very well for larger groups - glad you agree! Thank you. More

Had a fantastic meal here after being recommended to by friends. Any dish can be altered in heat to suit any palate and we were not disappointed with the results. Would go as far as saying this is the best Indian restaurant in Leeds and the Peshwari naan is to die for. Excellent!

Kate_Ghauri, Owner at The Corner Cafe, responded to this review

I am glad you were recommended by friends, as we don't advertise, and so rely on personal recommendations to introduce us to new people. The peshwari naan is lovely and sweet - perfect with a spicy, creamy corma. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. More

Went to Test Match at Headingley with 2 mates, and one said he'd been to this indian restaurant on Burley Road about 25 years back! So we walked down and tried it out anyhow. It was excellent, they were really accommodating, and the food was beautiful - one dish was extra hot. This was exactly what we needed after a... More

Been to Corner Cafe on numerous occasions as my friend has lived a few streets away for a couple of years. Food is always of a really high standard and is great value for money. Portions are massive so we often get the early bird option (with plenty of prosecco!). Atmosphere is always buzzing and the staff are lovely. The... More

I have had great curries here, but it's so hit and miss - 50/50 - as to whether it's good or not. This time my beer was excellent. My fish pakora was tasty, but too damp I thought. The nan was also excellent, but the most important part - the curry it's self - was really not good. It was... More
