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.

“Fab Service”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Visited on a rainy miserable Wednesday evening. Despite the weather the place was quite full. We had drinks at the bar- not cheap- 4 halves nearly£14! and then proceeded to our table. The waiter was very friendly and soon took our order! Starters were lovely- I opted for Chicken liver Parfait- delicious. Unfortunately a party of 8 were seated behind us and just got louder and louder! We all had steak for main course and this was cooked to everyone's liking. The din from the table behind us was getting louder and louder and we asked the waiter if he had a volume control. He immediately offered to move us but by this time we had all finished our meals and declined. We opted out of desserts and just got our bill.
The place is lovely service great food quality excellant , unfortunately there's not a lot you can do about rude loud inconsiderate people.
Definitely worth a visit .

Thank Lou Lou B

Meal was lovely and staff very friendly and attentive . Enjoyed two courses both high quality and very tasty. The restaurant is very inviting with subdued lighting making for great atmosphere. Drinks were expensive from the bar .

“Top quality”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Ate here 2 nights in row when staying in Leeds on business and ate from the set menu both nights. Had superb 3 course meals and the food quality was top notch. I would definitely recommend eating here and £14.99 for 2 courses cant be beaten on taste or quality.

“Highly Enjoyable”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Trout pate was sublime
Pork cheeks need a tad of seasoning
Risotto and bream was unbelievably good
Indian chicken dish was the pick of the lot - well balanced seasoning that was perfect.

Wine was ok - Malplonk - but a little light and could have done with body! Personal choice I guess

Staff were attentive, service cracking - mood and atmosphere was spot on

“Good fun, great atmosphere”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Went with a girfriend and had a lovely meal. Service was perfect, not hovering over you too much but just the right level of care and attention.

The steak was tasty and they have a good wine list.

Will definitely go back-well done Malmaison! :)
