Visited The Corner Café on the recommendation of a friend and I'm really glad we did. Despite the name suggesting it is a greasy spoon, we were pleased to be greeted by a quirky atmosphere which isn't traditional Indian restaurant which was a breath of fresh air. The food was fantastic, as were the staff. Definitely worth the venture out... More

Great service and great food at a fantastic price. Portion sizes were smaller for early bird (before 7pm) but plenty for us. Staff were promptly, but not overly, attentive with a very cosy and welcoming ambience.

Corner cafe is a nice and friendly indian restaurant on one of the main roads of Leeds, which offered a great - but not pretentious - atmosphere. Generous portions of delicious food, all served by excellent staff. In fact, one of the best features of this place includes a non-intrusive and very kind team, along with carefully matched ingredients, a... More

After our 3rd visit last night I am still very pleased with Corner Cafe - what a great team with friendly people who, from the servers to the managers, remember us on each visit and seem genuinely pleased to see us. The curry is wonderful and the veggie range is brilliant - I also love that I can choose the... More

I gave this restaurant 5 stars in November 2014. I can't believe it's the same place. It still has a lovely atmosphere but the food was not good and the staff were both disinterested and a bit surly. The starters (bhaji and mixed starter) were either over-fried and greasy or very dry. The main courses were not that tasty -... More

We've been going to the Corner Cafe for over 30 years and the standards have just carried on going up. Staff are always welcoming, with new ones well trained, and - my little bit of vanity - the owners always recognise and greet us even when we haven't been for a year or more. The value for money is outstanding.

Tonight was our first eat in meal after ordering take out quite a few times. The setting is nice, fairly quaint, nothing too flash but still nice enough. Music is faint in the background. Every time I go in I find it strange as it's essentially an Indian/Southern Asian restaurant with wholly European staff, pretty unique I'd guess. We had... More

Bit different to your usual curry house. We went on a warm Sunday evening and it was packed-out. Few tables downstairs and a few more upstairs. A simple one page menu for meat-eaters, and another for veggies. Our food was excellent - very tasty, at a good heat, and seemed very fresh. Only slight disappointment was a chickpea starter that...

Due to work commitments I am currently in Leeds 2 nights per week. One of those nights on average always includes a trip to the Corner Cafe for a Chicken Tikka Masala Korma. The best i have had in the UK, Superb!
