Great food and service. There was a group of 8 of us and we all enjoyed our meal and it wasn't too expensive. The decor is gorgeous and had a very nice atmosphere around it. We will be back here in the future.

Good cocktails, helpful staff, food is very poor. Charging £18 for poor quality steak and then over cooking it is not acceptable and I will still to the cocktail menu if I go to the Botanist in future.

In 2016 especially I spent most of my time in Leeds on business trips. Then, a year later I was thinking back to this place. I tried so much different food here. Best has to be the hanging kebab. I recommend to try this dish...More
