Description: Chinese, Italian, Indian or Thai. Can���t decide? Then you need Spice Quarter in Leeds, home to the re-defined buffet. Bringing together favourites from all four countries, you can have a little of what you fancy from each. Featuring a salad counter, pizza and pasta station, masala dosa and kebab stations, a build-your-own stir fry, curry counter and even a chocolate fountain and dessert selection, you could go every day for a week and never eat the same thing twice. It���s great value for money, and perfect before a knees-up in Leeds. After you���ve filled up, stop by the Spice Bar and enjoy a relaxing drink on the candle-lit indoor terrace, complete with one of the shisha pipes on offer.

I eaten here a number of times - yes its a buffet, it represents value for money the choice is great and the Indian cuisine has always been good to very good. Everything is tasty and the staff are attentive, the choice is great - although carrot halva on the desert menu would be a real plus.

It not an exceptional indian restuarant but is always enjoyable and tasty. What more could you want!!!!!

I was quite excited to try another buffet restaurant in Leeds, especially when I had a voucher from Pink Gorilla with an offer 2 for 1. Although I cannot fault the service - all the staff were very courteous, cleared the plates in a timely manner and delivered the food on order to your table, I was really disappointed with a very small choice of the dishes and also quality of certain items. Comparing to other buffet places in Leeds such as Red Hot Buffet and new Cosmo, Spice Quarter has around a quarter of the meal choices. Especially the starter section was not really good ...just few salads without sign-age so we were not sure what was on our plate....one type of bread which was really hard...Mains were not too bad but absolutely no healthy option and I could not help comparing the selection to other buffets which charge the same amount...

Desserts consisted of ice cream, rice pudding, jelly, 3 types of cake,candies and chocolate fountain with marshmallows and fruit...Everything was tasty but again, the low selection let it down...

I'm not a massive lover of buffet style restaurants anyway but I feel that the quality of this food is pretty poor.
I wouldn't recommend

Good friendly welcome, great food with excellent service. Just tell the waiter what you like and let him chose the food for you for a very enjoyable Indian meal.

Visited in 2012 and impressed by the vitality of the place and generally good quality of the food.

However on 2 recent visits (one lunch, one early evening) the experience was unfortunately quite different. Hot starters were cold and unappetising, lots of items were not available, deserts were very limited and of poor quality.

The momentum seems to have gone, and I would not be keen to return. A pity.
