Decent food in a location easily missed. The staff were lovely and friendly and service was very speedy. The menu has lots of ale and beer to choose from. The food menu is extensive and the peshwari naan was incredible with honey and nuts. I've had better currys elsewhere hence the 4 stars but would definitely return.

Visited with a group of work colleagues and the meal lived up to my memories and expectations from previous visits. Really busy (and rightly so), even mid-week, so make sure you book. Also features that rare treat which is a decent range of desserts - the amazing range of kulfis are to die for!

... I have discovered marmalade kulfi. But first things first. I came in after work and tried the Early Bird menu. I was driving so just settled for the water on offer. I had a poppadom with mint yogurt to begin - it tasted very fresh. This was followed by a very nice shami kebab. I then chose chicken spinach... More

Pretty much on my doorstep in Leeds., yet you could Blink & miss it. Based in an Old Midland Bank property & not very visible unless you drive very slowly on the normally very busy Burley road.This place does use a very minimal amount of Oil in its food preparation- which is good news for weight watchers ! who enjoy...

You are quite right, David, we do try to use the minimum amount of ghee necessary in our cooking. So glad you like our style of cuisine! Thanks for a super review. More

This restaurant is a gem. Always a wonderfully warm welcome, great list of craft beers (and gins and wines) with a very different home cooked menu. Enormous choices, whether a vegetarian or meat lover. A warm atmosphere, friendly service, home from home. A special oasis that draws me every time I visit Leeds. The photos don't do it justice.

This is our go to curry restaurant, whether it's to eat in or takeaway. The curries are fresh, tasty and seem very healthy due to the lack of the risidual ghee/oil you get in a lot of other Indian restaurants. They often accommodate our off the menu requests and the super friendly owners and staff make you extremely welcome. Plus... More

Thank you for a great review. We do always try to use the minimum amount of ghee in our main courses. We are lucky in Yorkshire to have so many thriving craft ale breweries in our region! Thanks again. More

If me and my partner order curry we always go here, the food is always fresh and tastes amazing whatever we order. I would highly recommended the dal shimla for vegetarians and my partner loves the chicken bhuna. The staff are always really friendly and welcoming when we pick up our food. I would highly recommended this place.

Visited the Corner Cafe with friends in early December. It was fairly quiet in the restaurant, and service was very good. They have a good range of beers, though they aren't cheap. We chose not to have starters, as we hate wasting food, though we did have a poppadom each with pickles. The main course, a tikka masala, was very... More

I was there in December 2016, with my GF and we were greeted by a very friendly and courteous staff. I was not a fan of the Indian cuisine before entering "the corner cafe", but that place made me think again. Highly recommended.
