I have been to Neon Cactus quite a few times in the past few years and one thing i can say about the place is that the atmosphere is great. It gets way too overcrowded which is something they definitely need to sort out because i definitely wouldnt want to be in there if there was a fire or any reason to get out quickly. its probably only about 12m long and it can take a good few minutes to push your way from the entrance to the doorway to downstairs (which granted is usually alot less packed but is very very warm!) The bar staff are the most enthusiastic ive ever seen and they know their stuff. Its like they are partying with the customers and its great. ive had a few free drinks in here simply because i ordered the barmans favourite rum or tequila. Its by far the most amazing atmosphere on call lane and the music is great too. I always make sure friends go to Neon if theyre visiting me and they always love it! P.S. Their cocktail list is brilliantly put together and they are always delicious. Go here and youre guaranteed to have a good time!

I've eaten here quite a few times - I'm always amazed at the quality of the food that comes out of the tiny kitchen at the end of the bar!
My most recent discovery is the feast for 2 for £20. (drinks not included) Theres 2x bowls nachos, 4x mini tacos, 2x big enchiladas and fajitas!! It's a load of food and I've never finished it with 2people just managed it with 3 people!
And on a night it totally transforms from a quiet relaxed restaurant to a mental tequila bar! I've been in on a few nights when the dj was on top form blasting out some ace house tunes and old school classics. Cracking night!

In Leeds for business and we found this fantastic place (although it was easy to miss as the name isn't very prominent from the street). Very friendly and welcoming staff. Had the £10.95 each platter for two including great nachos, tortillas, enchiladas and fajitas. Bargain price with very tasty food. Just wish I lived in Leeds to frequent this place more often.

Good night out but always ruined by bouncers not letting You in. I dont even drink. Doormen don't let single males or groups of males in. Very poor.

Great food, cool music and a darn good mojito. I had a longing for a burrito and Neon Cactus didn't disappoint. I also had Nacho envy watching the people next to me tuck in to their food....nom nom nom
