Gourmet gastronomy in the heart of Yorkshire
From fine dining to grub-to-go, Leeds is a diner's dream. With new restaurants and eateries popping up every other week, plus tried and tested Yorkshire favourites, you'll never be short of a great place to eat.
The Man Behind the Curtain
For the hottest ticket in the Leeds dining scene, try and get a reservation at Michael O’Hare’s Michelin-starred restaurant, with tasting menus to die for – but be warned, you’ll need to book months in advance!
Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen
For something a little more casual, Leeds bar staple Belgrave Music Hall is no slouch on the food front. With the best roof terrace in Leeds, live music, and an electric atmosphere, you can keep your feet tapping and your stomach full with New York style pizza from Dough Boys. And the bar is as good as the pizza!
For a meal you won't forget in a hurry, this stunning modern Chinese restaurant looks as incredible as the luxurious menu tastes. Mere steps from the entrance to the Queens, Tattu boasts cherry blossom trees filling the space and dramatic hanging lanterns - and the delicious food, reimagining traditional Chinese dishes with a twist, is just as fantastic.
Forget bland kormas or a stodgy tikka masala. Tharavadu is the home of authentic southern Indian cuisine in Leeds – generously portioned, humming with rich spices and warm, friendly service. Winners of the Oliver Awards Best Indian category for three years running, make sure you book ahead of time to bag a table!
Leeds isn't short on fantastic Thai restaurants, but Sukhothai is a cut above. Describing themselves as 'home of authentic Thai cuisine in Yorkshire', Sukhothai prides itself on impeccable service, generous portions and - above all - truly delicious Thai food. With over 200 options on the menu, you'll be spoilt for choice.
