“Lovely place to eat and drink”

Seems to be the 'in' place at the moment, gets very busy so would advise to book a table. Service was good and food very nice with a good atmosphere. Will go again!

“Wonderful atmosphere, fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Six of us visited the Alchemist for a friends birthday on Tuesday lunchtime.
Theres so many restaurants to choose from in Leeds but decided to book this one as its in the new trinity centre and quite new. On arrival we were met by a lovely friendly young lady who offered us drinks and took us to our table. What a fabulous dining experience, the kitchens are open and you can see the chefs busy preparing the most gorgeous food. The atmosphere was buzzing for a Tuesday lunchtime. We ordered a selection of starters to try the many mouth watering dishes, the king prawn lollipops with sweet chilli dip were wonderful and we also had duck spring rolls, lamb meatballs, calamari and chicken parcels, all fabulous. Our main courses were just as good, chicken fajitas served sizzling with a variety of dips and salad. The steak and French fries served with pepper sauce was cooked to perfection. My friend had the most amazing thai chicken curry all cooked freshly. All in all everything was just wonderful, we had 3 bottles of Rose wine and then tried the Mad hatters tea party cocktail. It is definitely top of the tree of dining experiences in Leeds and we will definitely be going again very soon. It cost £30 per head which was very reasonable for what we had.

“most seating needed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Fabulous menu of cocktails. Expensive, but worth it given the amount of effort that goes into making them. Great location. Perfect for people watching. Never enough seats though - maybe they should limit the people coming in if there's not enough seats?
