“Friendly atmosphere and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

The Corner Café are only too pleased to take your booking, unlike another Indian restaurant who told me I could turn up and wait for a table, I then rechecked the Tripadvisor reviews and found a better rated establishment. From start to finish I was made welcome and both my Aunt and I enjoyed a really good meal, which was obviously freshly prepared as we were asked how hot we wanted our curries. The menu was explained to us and the man who took our order was patient throughout. If you want more authentic cuisine in a relaxing and warm atmosphere, then The Corner Café is just right for you.

“It is the nectar of Kandahar in Leeds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2011

Kandahar here is not the capital of Afghanistan, no. It is the main resturant in Munmbai Oberoi in Nariman Point of Mumbai, India.
If you are in Leeds and you want to enjoy the real blossom of Indian Cuisine,one would not waist time asking about the list of Asian Restaurants in this city. They are many with some of which had invested tens of millions on decorations and so on. This restaurant is original with welcoming faces every minute of your stay. I just wish that they open more days per week than they do now.
Now, I am not the owner of this restaurant niether a citizen of UK. I am a tourist who came from Saudi Arabia. I am stating my contact here to verify this if you like.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011 via mobile

Well. We were really looking forward to the 2nd best restaurant in Leeds as we were down for the cricket. Early Bird offer was really rushed. Starters were not good- kebab was like shoe leather. Mains were better but very small half portions. More like quarters. Owner was very nice but other staff were inefficient and frantic. We were unsubtly made to leave for next sitting at 8pm.
