This place is a gem to meet with friends or business lunch. To park you need to go through the barrier at the back of the print building opposite Costco park. Buzz on intercom and you will be let through, deli and restaurant to your left at end of building. You are welcomed on arrival and offered to sit in... More

We had lunch here today, what great value for money, and the food was delicious, three of us had the salad with a choice of smoked salmon or beef. A lovely bottle of wine, and the cappuccinos were great. Will definitely be back

The academy provides an excellent experience delivered by students. The range of dishes is interesting and were all well presented. Although one course was slightly under seasoned, everything was very good quality, and it was ridiculously good value. The staff were excellent - although some appeared to lack confidence at first, they were extremely helpful, and managed to accommodate all... More

The food academy is a training establishment for the catering industry, so there are minor faults, but all in all the food is excellent, the service friendly and the wine very reasonably priced so why is there not a queue to get in? Not to be missed.

Really enjoyed our meal at the Food Academy this week. The new Deli menu offers the option to have something different complimenting the great Fine Dining Menu. The Burger is something very special!

Fantastic little hidden gem for foodies in Leeds! Excellent service (although somewhat disappointingly we were the only group in the restaurant). The March menu all appeared to match well. The guinea fowl was a clear hit with the group though. Presentation for all courses was to a high standard. Looking forward to returning to try the Deli and we'll definitely... More

The Food Academy was recommended to us by one of our friends. It exceeded all our expectations to a point, that we are now their regular guests. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, the ample spaces between tables, the simple, modern and immaculately clean décor, the care, attention of all their staff….... and the free parking. I could easily compare the... More
