We were staying over in the hotel (our preferred hotel in Leeds) and we had a special deal which allowed us to dine in the restaurant. We traded in our dinning allowance to the al a carte menu ad we were not disappointed. Service was almost perfect - not over the top but ready to act as and when needed.... More

We visited here 1st December as a work group for our team Christmas Meal. We managed to get the early bird offer which was 3 courses for £19.95 with a glass of prosecco included! We half expected the portions to be tiny given the cheap price but quite the opposite! I had salmon for starter and it was more than... More

In leeds on my own on business mid week in November.The bistro was rather drab and dispiriting. A few other tables were occupied with single diners, presumably staying in the hotel. The service was OK, if a bit stretched with a private business party in a side room. The food was just OK. I asked for a modification to my... More

This is the small restaurant in the semi basement of the fantastic Malmaison hotel and next to the vibrant cocktail bar. Surrounded by the very best clubs, eateries and bars that Leeds has to offer the food has to be good and has to be good value and it doesn't disappoint. A melt-in-the-mouth sirloin steak was cooked to perfection and... More

We were staying over night in the hotel and had breakfast the next morning in the Brassiere. The continental breakfast has ample choice and would offer up something that most people should be able to find something to eat. We always end up being very full !

We went to chez mal for the four course Sunday lunch and were very impressed with the food, choice and waiting staff. Brilliant location (very central) and quirky decor. Will be returning. Just watch the service charge which is added to the bill and not marked as discretionary- it is the only reason this isn't a five start review and... More

Ate here two nights and also had breakfast - very good quality and choice. Can't recommend the steak frites and sticky toffee pudding enough. Maple syrup waffles were also delicious for breakfast

5 of us went for Sunday lunch and it was really nice. We had 4 courses and a glass of wine or beer for £19.99 with offer from Pink Gorilla. There was a lot of food to have if you have a big appetite. You can start with soup then there is a huge table full of salads, quiches, smoked... More

For £20 a head this Sunday Lunch is outstanding. You start with a stupendous buffet or soup or both. Soup today was mushroom. An array of choice on the buffet inc ham, salads, salmon poached and smoked, cheese, scotch egg, cheese, bread, cheese biscuits etc etc. Everything carefully presented. 2nd course choice of brunch items such as eggs benedict or...

We popped in here last week while shopping, only stopped in for a drink though. The choice was great, prices were a little more than average but service was great. My only negative would be that I don't think the Edison bulb features within the bar really work with the overall decor. But we will be back (we are staying... More

Description
Recently refurbished to create Chez Mal, the heart and soul of every Malmaison hotel, where iconic dishes are prepared with a modern twist and served with passion and personality, including sublime steaks, the awesome MalBurger and a mouthwatering wine list. Nothing beats honest northern food, and it doesn't get any better than at Chez Mal Brasserie. With elegant ceilings, plush leather seating and contempary lighting. The Chez Mal Brasserie in Leeds has got style to spare, and all of the classic British dishes with a twist that you could ever ask for. Sure, Yorkshire pudding will be here, sharing a plate with locally-produced beef. But our dedicated chefs do french cuisine too, not to mention our ever-popular Mal Burger. And of course, when you want fine wines to match every course, our super sommelier offers vintages, aperitifs and digestifs to die for. No other restaurant in Leeds comes close.
