“Never fails to please”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We have been coming to the Corner Café since it was in Sheepscar in the 1970's and then since it re-opened on Burley Road. The food is always great and the fish and vegetarian choices make it a perfect place to go with non meat eating friends. The owner and his wife are great hosts and Kate's desserts are really unusual and delicious.

“Wow factor was missing”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

After being recommended by a friend, who thought it was very good, my wife & i went two Sundays ago.

Restaurant quite busy, service warm, friendly & efficient.

Food looked OK & tasted OK, but for me, that wow factor was missing.

Wife thoroughly enjoyed it, My opinion, Bradford wins every time..

“Nice enough.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

I visited here with my family, 6 in total. The restaurant did get very busy during our visit, it obviously popular. Our meal was nice but I wasn't blown away, plus they forgot one of the meals. They did give us another portion of rice as a gesture for their mistake. Overall it was nice, but I won't rush back, I've had nicer curries elsewhere.

Thank you for your review. Sorry that the second Chicken Shimla dish was late arriving. Unfortunately, the waitress wrote the order down incorrectly. Our mistake, sorry about that.

“Lovely Indian restaurant”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We arrived for our evening meal at 7pm, and the restaurant was already full! Although we had to wait around 15 minutes for our table, we were quite happy sitting in the seating area and having a relaxed drink. When we did order the food arrived really promptly - I was expecting a wait as it was so busy, and so was very pleasantly surprised. I ordered the fish pakoras and a paneer shimla. Both were fabulous, although I was too full to finish the main course as the portions were very generous. Although i ordered my curry 'medium', i didn't think it was that spicy (but i am used to bradford curries), but i'm not complaining - just an observation! The waiter recommended a chilled Bordeaux which was also delicious! My partner ordered a chicken and mushroom dish which was also lovely with really lovely spices. Would definitely recommend. The meal with drinks (quite a few!), starters, mains and a side came to under £60 and was well worth it.

Hi Rosie. It was lovely to meet you both on Saturday. Good to hear you enjoyed your evening with us. We offer 5 different spice levels, from mild up to hot, so hopefully we will see you again and you can try the madras strength next time? Thank you again.
